    Advice/tips on heating solutions and damp/mould please!

    i live in Cairns....mould city in wet season ) use Oil of cloves in a spray bottle with water...just a few drops! this actually kills the mould spores, bleach just bleaches them and makes them go white. Oil of cloves is one of the few things that actually kills it...smells a bit but works on everything including leather sofas! You can get oil of cloves in your local pharmacy )

    Annoyed with the rental agency

    we asked our landlord through the agent whether we could have a dog, the response we had back from the agent was a resounding NO CHANCE! after speaking to one of the locals who is friends with the landlord.....turns out they never even asked him!! he had received no emails or correspondance even though the rental agent stated she'd emailed him and his response was no! CHEEK!

LOL! my hubby goes to the pub every Friday night and usually comes home with a meat or fish tray that he's won in a raffle! i in the meantime have 'driveway drinks' with the local ladies, where we watch the world go by as the kids play in the street ) Good Times!

    HSBC Premier vs. Local Bank (i.e NAB, WestPac etc)

    Dont touch HSBC with a barge pole! we made that mistake...already banking with them in the UK we thought it would be easy! they kept sending everything to our UK address!!! 4 times they sent our internet banking keyfob thingy to the UK, trying to speak to people is a nightmare, can never get hold of anyone! we opened a NAB account and closed our HSBC ones (and the UK...who have been even worse since we moved!) NAB have been great, very efficient )
  8. I lived on Anglesey in North Wales, beautiful part of the world.....if it's good enough for Wills and Kate ) oh and you should come to Cairns, it NEVER rains here! :eek:
