    Car advice

    According to google, they weren't on sale here long: Holden's ill-fated experiment with Daewoo-built products is perfectly encapsulated with the largely unloved Malibu. Imported from Korea with the sole intention of battling Toyota's Camry in the medium sedan segment – and perhaps paving the way to serve as an eventual replacement for the Commodore – the Malibu singularly failed to find a buyer base in Australia, despite offering reasonable specs and value . Offered with a 2.4-litre four-cylinder petrol or 2.0-litre diesel, the front-wheel drive Malibu would only end up staying in Holden showrooms for a little over three years, from June 2013 to late 2016.

    Yet when it comes to your mum, you seem happy to let the bully win..

    How to keep everybody happy??

    If you had a kid and he/she was being bullied at school, or if your husband was being bullied by his boss - what advice would you give them?

    How to keep everybody happy??

    It's harsh but its true.. All the compromise seems to from your side. Why should you bend over backwards even further? Cancel this years visit and go on a well deserved holiday with your husband. Make your own demands of your family and if they won't meet you half way you should cut your losses. It's not like you'll bump into them on the High Street. Stop trying to have the same relationship you had with them when you lived close by. You live on the other side of the world for heaven's sake, surely that gives you some space to do what you want?

    So do whatever they want you to do and quit moaning about it? Can't have it both ways. Using all your holiday to visit the UK every year is a completely unreasonable request to make of somebody.

    You're grown ups. Don't go back to the UK until you want to. It really is that simple... Stop talking to your parents until they stop guilt tripping you. Live your own life, not theirs.

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    I would feel sorry for them, if it weren't a case of watching my country of birth slowly implode. There is no happy ever after for anyone in this.

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    Like watching the slowest train wreck ever.....
  14. I have a landlords insurance through Simply Business, who do not mandate a contract with a property manager. But they have a catch all clause that says they can deny any claim on the basis that you did not disclose any information that they deem pertinent. Hope to never claim, but expecting it will be rejected for failing to declare the time I snogged an American girl whilst caving in Cheddar.

    Visa Specialist Recommendations?

    Hi, congratulations on your decision to move to Australia. You should be aware that the folk that deal with the preparation of visa applications for financial migrants are rarely lawyers. The process is largely administrative and the persons deemed qualified to assist are known as MARA registered agents. People seem to get the best results when they choose an agent that is directly MARA registered (rather than being indirectly associated with one). The list of MARA agents is here: https://www.mara.gov.au/ You should consider your timings as GCSEs aren't a recognised qualification, but might help with High School (depending on the school).... Good luck....
