    Counting down!

    I think you will always find work in London although it may not be exactly what you want to start with. Within reason be prepared to do anything and once you're in the workforce doors will open for you. I'm not speaking from experience. I'm too old now, but hear from others work is available but just be careful. I hope it all works out for you and your daughter and surely your relatives will keep an eye out for you. I have found a o great Airb&b in the local town I'm going to and was able to negotiate a better price because I've said I would like to stay for 3 months or more as will be looking for something permanent. Maybe you could do the same.I'm talking about Aus but rent coming in on a regular basis is attractive in anyone's language. Good luck to you both. Just keep your wits about you!

    OMG just beautiful and the music very moving and powerful. How I wish I was 20 years younger! Thank you so much for posting. There are not enough adjectives to describe it. I would so love to be able to post this to my daughters. Any advice as to how it can be done please.

    i would love to be near the sea I think as I love the wind in my face when walking along a beach and smell of the sea air. Obviously needs change but I just wondered if some of you had lived in different parts of Tas and which was your favourite spot. We lived very close to the north sea once in the uk and it was miserable but the beach was lovely. at certain times of the year. Lovely friendly people and very kind. Suffolk. Makes a difference to your memories. Best smoked haddock I have ever tasted and kippers

    A hypothetical question! If you had a choice where to live in Tasmania where would you choose?

    Sounds like a good profession to have chosen and something different. I admire that. Good luck to him. You seem to grow very talented people on your island!

    Just read about this chap on FB. Can't copy and paste photos unfortunately but thought you might like this snippet. shout out to a fellow Aussie who is a professional kite maker, Robert Brasington from Tassie. I went to the international kite festival in Notre Dame de Monts and had a chat with him. He's travelling around EU . I didn't see him but obviously another aussie did.

    Thank you very much indeed Amber for the information you have posted. Makes sense and I understand what you're saying. A great deal is lost in translation when you don't speak the language fluently and that is exactly what has happened in my case here in France. I was floundering somewhat. I appreciate the time and effort everyone has contributed to my query. Very kind.

    thank you. I can't have the injections apparently I have the wrong MD! Could change. Will be interested to know what she pays. I presume she's not private?

    I have MD. What is the situation with regard to seeing an eye specialist when you first arrive. Is there a long waiting time for ophthalmologists and if one can't afford to go private, which I can't, does it still cost? I will be staying l 1/2 hours from Melbourne.

    Just connected with someone we knew 40 odd years ago in Melbourne. He saw my name on FB and made contact. He lives in Dover. Now that's a place I know nothing about.

    Gosh I am learning about your island. It certainly is diverse geographically and gives me impetus to want to visit even more. Fascinating. Thank you.

    We've had a mixture of everything the last week. Unbelievable here in the Morbihan, heat that none of us who live here signed up for, thunderstorms and rain. Thank goodness the temp has dropped back from 38 to 23 today. Can breathe again. Interesting Hobart or eastern Tasmania has had so little rain. Ballarat where I'm heading for has been having floods. Not quite sure where I'd rather be herein France or Aus! A changing climate for sure. Hope you all had a great day. Mine is just beginning and now the sun is coming out again.
