    Go home to uk or build retirement in Melbourne?

    I'd second that and if he/she returns to Australia they will know it was their choice.

    You mention buying a tiny place if you were to stay in Australia. Could you buy something before you go and rent it out? You could sell when you decide where home is and in the meantime be building equity.

    what are you doing right now?

    Viewquest, Monty radio in Oak is currently in a shipping container somewhere between Perth and Adelaide.

    Yes and that would work, just need to find an app with a sleep timer.

    what are you doing right now?

    My much loved alarm clock radio just died and I thought I'd upgrade. Silly as this sounds, the only radios I can find are black and despite being in Melbourne I want something in colour, oak, white, anything but black.

    Browsing for an internet radio so I can listen to BBC Radio. At the moment it's AFL season and every station sounds the same.
  7. Just a couple of comments, firstly don't get fixated on returning, there are a lot of advantages of staying here. You and your family are already familiar with how the system works here in Australia. Going back means re-establishing everything (child care, doctors, benefits) and that is going to be tough right now. Secondly have you discussed returning with both sets of parents? I realise you might not want to raise their hopes but maybe they could help or maybe they need help.

    Yes. It was quirky, and light watching.

    Its legal but you don't agree with it?

    Mamils, middle aged men in lycra, using public roads as a velodrome. The number of times I've carefully overtaken one of them on a suburban road only to have the cyclist catch up to me at the next traffic lights, undertake me and then pull in front . Not only do I get a full on view of their skinny butt, but I have to carefully overtake yet again. Why can't they hang back and let the faster vehicles go?

    And the fact that Australian Gross debt has doubled since 2013 doesn't make you question this? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australian_government_debt

    Getting broadband with no Australian credit history

    Sorry, I misunderstood the question. Maybe try Aussie Broadband. They are smaller and based in Gippsland.

    Getting broadband with no Australian credit history

    Can you get by without a home phone/ broadband? I'd be wary about making too many applications because they will affect your credit rating adversely.

    I just don't understand how cutting income equates to good economic management.
