    Toilet paper recommendations

    Goodness this is a real first world problem isn't it. Be grateful you have a flushing loo and don't have to dig a hole in the ground. Newspapers are good although you are sometimes left with a black arse. I brought a roll of cheap homebrand the other day as an emergency roll. My poor old bottom is chaffed now. Terrible stuff. Here you are: https://www.canstarblue.com.au/home-garden/home-essentials/toilet-paper/ Who would have thought there was such a site!

    problem neighbour

    Personally I would move. He sounds mentally unstable. And sounds like he is progressively getting worse. If you cannot move, then I suggest locking the doors so he cannot walk in unannounced. If he knocks on the door, then ignore him. Whole thing sounds a nightmare. Do keep a record of any incidents, because if you need to go to the police, you will need documented evidence.

    Moving Back and Selling Contents of Flat

    I had a garage sale before my big move. Basically sold everything. And it was amazing what people brought. Stuff I was going to throw out (old pots, empty jam jars, dried flowers) - ones mans trash is another mans treasure

    Ho hum. Your reputation precedes you Bristolman. I have been pre-warned about you by two ex-forum members. Didn't take you long to pop up either. I had only been a member for about five minutes when that happened! Thank you Toots - I will certainly try to enjoy the forum. And also try to avoid those boring Australia versus the UK stuff, you ware warning me about.

    ?? Well why are you all whining about it then? Posting replies about different priorities and defending your decisions, and asking me to stop using the word hack. Now you tell me I can carry on and no-one is stopping me!! Far out. My friend was certainly NOT joking when he mentioned the bickering. This is too funny. As I said before this thread got off track. People leave for many many different reasons. Some are homesick, some need to look after elderly parents, some find it too expensive to live here, some are lonely, and some cannot hack it due to the heat, or the wildlife or the isolation. Hack is simply another word for coping. Not sure why this needs further discussion.

    Well not sure what game you are referring to?! I thought the replies to me were quite aggressive. Over practically nothing too. However, lucky I was warned about this site before I joined. Been told certain members love to bicker for no apparent reason.

    Well if you are hiking or exploring, then something like this: https://www.kathmandu.com.au/womens/footwear/boots-and-gaiters/tiber-women-s-ngx-leather-hiking-boots.html I wore mine everywhere. Not just on walking tracks, but also to work and in the city (great for bar hopping!), goes well with both trousers, jeans, shorts, etc... If you plan on going for interviews, or working in an office, then a nice smart pair of shoes will be needed. Flip flops are good for the beach.

    Tasmania state nomination received

    That is good experience. I would say getting a job in Tasmania will be extremely hard. But having hospitality experience is a very good head start. You will need a RSA (Responsible Serving of Alcohol) Certificate.

    5 days at Christmas

    What about Bunya Mountains National Park. There are chalets to rent, if you don't want to camp. Only a three hour drive from Brisbane.

    With all due respect, why should I stop using a term that I use often, and have done for 50 years.

    Yes but in a very strange manner.

    Honestly if the term "hack it" gets your hackles up, then you need to take a deep breathe and take a chill pill. A couple of aums may assist the process to calm down. What a very weird response I have had over nothing. I have said it before and I will say it again........ there's nowt so queer as folk.

    ?????????? Oh my Godfathers. Who would have thought a simple little term "hack it", that I use on a regular basis in my every day life, could seemingly get so many knickers in a knot!

    Visa Approved now where to start? What do we do first?

    Hello Not a lot biggest single expense was the fridge. We brought it new, but there are 2nds outlets where you can get a brand new fridge cheaply, just because it has a small scratch or dent on it. https://www.appliancesonline.com.au/factory-seconds/ The Fantastic Furniture Packages are great. https://www.fantasticfurniture.com.au/c/Package Deals Most places also offer a buy-now-pay-later option (i.e.) a 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 year interest-free payment plan. I use Gumtree and the Freecycle groups too: https://trashnothing.com/groups/australia/
