    Violent dogs V Violent people??

    Haven't any of you watched Ceasar?? The Dog Whisperer? lol.. Its ace, Its how the dogs are trainned !!, Ceasar ownes Pitbulls that he takes with him when he goes round to help owners with there problem or aggressive dogs & he's the best ever!! very famous for it, & his pitbulls are the softest best trainned ever, all is dogs are, he is very good at explainning why dogs are aggressive ..., I'd say 95% of the time its the owner!, most people haven't got a clue how to train a puppy/dog any type never mind the massive/strong dogs that need the most decent trainning to prevent anything ever happening, any dog can be aggressive!!.. its just the bigger the dog the more dangerous it can turn out in the wrong hands (always had dogs big or medium size all my life & my parents life) Ellen x

    Melbourne is not cold!

    Nicely put & good to hear, it sounds a good option if people moving to oz don't want it too hot or hot all the time, we always like the idea of Brisbane but got to admit i do worry it may be too humid & hot for us, so were looking at all places really... keeping an open mind & all that Ellen x

    how much sleep do you get at night?

    I always say i'm an 8hr girl cos thats how long i prefer but don't always get it then i feel tired (or sometimes mardy lol!) until i try & catch up, maybe try & go bed a bit earlier. Yeah my OH is same too he usually goes straight off dead to world all night barely moving then he'll say "couldn't get to sleep last night & was awake turning about!!" i'm a light sleeper any movement or sound (outside or kids) & i'm up, he doesn't hear a thing!!

    I must have been insane?

    Thanks for the post hopefully it will make 'some people 'think' alot more before rushing back to UK.. or hopefully just go home to UK for a few wks holiday first! Before what 'some seem' to rush into moving back to uk usually because of 'home sickness' & Then either wks or months down line regret comin back & wish they hadn't !! (& some even move back to Oz again! ..All that money..& regret) i feel for u, i think its some peoples fear (& mine) that one will love Australia & the OH of the couple will not!! Scary!!.. but even thou u may have some regrets for u or rest of you family it sounds like you've decided to stay for whatever reasons & thats upto you, good luck hope everything turns out for best Ellen x

    Yeah i think he did plug his business the other day, forgot what it was called but he put the same thing Then followed by all about his business too!! cos i thought this sounds a bit... unreal.. yeah like an advert!! then he went on to say what business he's setting up..
  16. Hi were from Doncaster in Yorkshire, hoping to start the ball rolling in about 12 months time when partner has finished his NVQ level 3 in his trade lift engineer (maintenance), looking at most places in oz really as tryin to keep an open mind to were we might end up job wise of course! & where we like & decide to settle in end..., Brisbane, Gold Coast or maybe north of NSW, excited but tryin to be realistic too, but as i always say we could always come back to UK if OZ turns out not to be for us, but secretly confident we'll love it & so is OH, meanwhile enjoying PIO with great interest Ellen x

    Accidentaly breached visa restrictions

    I think you only pay for the advice you need at the moment from the RMA, i'm sure if you want to save your money & apply for the visa yourself you can do, hope this helps or maybe someone else knows more on PIO, good luck & :ssign18:to PIO Ellen x

    A dilemma!

    I know this may not be something that you'd normally do Andy but next time they short change u stick up for yourselve & make a bit of a scene making sure other shoppers hear u sayin "i've had enough of u short changing me for wks & sayin quite loudly god knows how many other people u do this too!!".... pointing out that its no mistake when its happenin everyday & telling him/them that its states clearly on the till what change to give me back!!!! also tell him you'll report it if it carries on, then say loudly to a few other people "check your change cos they can't count in here!! & you'll probably find they've short changed u like they usually do!!" hopefully they'll be embarrassed & to scared to do it again, good luck
