    I get Keoride - it is a brilliant service. My last trip cost me $2.00. For a taxi the same distance would have cost me $22.00.

    Where to focus on Sydney suburbs

    Hello I really like Lane Cove - which is a northern suburb It has got a really fast direct Express bus service into the CBD. I know because I caught it by accident - takes 15 mins. It is in your house price range. It has a lovely little village-like community, great food shopping (Harris Farm is amazing), post office, restaurants and cafes. Got a really excellent Aquatic center with indoor and outdoor pools, gym, spa, sauna & steam room. The suburb is surrounded by the Lane Cove National Park, where you have boating, running trails, biking, and bush walks. It is 3km from Chatswoood, which is a larger suburb with two massive shopping centers, restaurants, banks, markets, doctors, schools, a train station and a bus depot. Plus 3km from RNS Hospital. And it is 11kms from the Sydney CBD, and takes about 15 - 30 minutes to drive a car (depending if you travel the early tradie rush hour, or the late school rush hour) traffic during the week. Last Sunday took me 15 mins to drive from Lane Cove to Darling Harbour. I used the M1 motorway and cross city tunnel. Just a nice all-round place.
  3. Hello Yes, that is fine for the average family in the suburbs - you can live comfortably Obviously if you want to to live in Vaucluse, eat a posh restaurants every night and send your children to private school - then that will be an issue on 100K.

    Hello Loads of different stores to get quality furniture and furnishings from You could buy antique or get bespoke handcarved Harvey Norman has some good stuff, as does Myer, Fanuli, David Jones, Matt Blatt, Zjoosh, Temple & Webster, Peters of Kensington and Harris Scarfe There is something wrong, if you cannot find something good at one of these places.

    Hello Bit late now, since we are coming into warmer weather But ozwearugg have a factory outlet in Rydalmere NSW 2116 You can get some great deals. I brought some fabulous fur lined boots in June (see photo below) and they cost $99.00 in a sale. Been great all over winter for walking and keeping feet warm I saw the exact same boots in a Chatswood Ugg store yesterday, and they were $400.00 They have a wide range of slippers there too - but to get the cheap prices you have to visit the factory outlet

    Location location location

    Hello There Central Coast in NSW could be a possibility Tuggerawong is near the beach, but also classed as rural with bush and farmland - and is 7klm from the nearest big town Looking on Real Estate Online I see for that area: To buy 17.3 acres of land costs just under a million To buy a four bed-roomed family home is $750,000 To rent a three bed-roomed family home is $400 a week If you got a job in Hornsby or Newcastle - Tuggerawong is an hours drive from both locations along the M1 motorway (plus 7klm from the railway line connecting to both Sydney and Newcastle) It is a very nice place. That is my best suggestion

    Ricky Gervais

    Mmmmm Some of it was. And I had a few laughs. Some of it was just offensive and Ricky taking things too far (again). I think on the whole Ricky is a likeable very funny guy But he certainly has a cruel streak in him, which I find unfunny. Especially last year that awful joke about Caitlyn Jenner where a lady had died. Extremely offensive to her family I am sure. Surprised nobody had tried clobbering him or suing him yet.
  9. Good point. However, he could have been a bit more subtle about it, as he sounds a bit patronising and lacking empathy Although yes in principle I agree with him. I was unemployed for a year and struggled to pay the rent, pay the bills, feed myself and my cat. No way would I have brought a kid or three into the mix. Whereas a lot of people already long term unemployed or on benefits are just having kids all over the place. The other thing is lack of knowledge for cooking and making cheap nutritious meals. For less than the price of a Maccas Happy meal, you can make a healthy nutritious meal that will last for a few days. So when they say they cannot afford to feed their kids, what are they actually feeding them on. Whilst I agree with what he is saying, I think he could have said it better, as if I was in their shoes I would have felt upset and offended by his lack of manners on a deeply personal issue.

    How is Megan doing so far?

    . I certainly don't. Arthur is part of the problem. The media (especially the Daily Fail Mail with their free-for-all comments from demented readers) has had a nasty agenda against her from the start. Quotes I have seen were : Too common (out of Compton), not white enough, too American. They wanted an English rose with a title for Harry and turned on Meghan as a result. And most of her estranged family have been awful money grabbers for attention. Just imagine your half brother who you have not seen for ten years, wrote a letter to the gutter press that your fiancee not marry you, then turn around and beg for a wedding invite. She gave up her job, her career, her home, her religion, closeness to her mum and friends, all her roots, everything, to move to a new country that was hostile to her from the start, then had a baby soon afterwards which can be hugely life changing, I actually consider she has held it together fairly well all things considered.

    Things you just don't get.

    Yes. I had just finished watching the movie when I signed up for PIO. Lack of imagination made me use the name. But I can safely assure Tonyman that (well at least last time I looked) I am a red blooded 100% female all over.
