  1. 17th December 2010 Happy 60th birthday Mum. Have a fantastic day. Enjoy your `get together` tomorrow night. I want to hear about the restaurant after you eat there on Saturday too. Lots of Love. Joanne and Mark x x x
  2. Hi everyone We're new to Poms in Oz. My husband flew to Sydney last month on a 457 and myself and our two daughters (5 and 17) are flying out next week. I'm a newly qualified social worker but am planning to be at home for a while whilst everyone else settles in and would really love to get to know people in similar positions - maybe meet up for coffee? We're hoping to be living in Mount Colah but that isn't confirmed yet. I'm currently going through the excited/panicky/sentimental feelings and just can't wait to get there and start living again. Would love to hear from anybody :smile: Cheers

    Hi all Just thought you would like to know that theres an Australian Expo being held in Manchester on the 16th & 17th October 2010. Its being held at 'Manchester Central' which use to be called the Manchester G-Mex Centre. Details can be found at Opportunities Australia Expo Its just my luck that the only time of the year that I am heading down to London to see friends, is the weekend they decide to hold the Expo. :sad: If anyone goes to the Expo could you please return to this thread and share your news and any details you may have received? Cheers Matt
  4. Hi, I arrive in Sydney on the 16th October and was wondering if a few of us wanted to get together for a good old night out, dancing, clubbing, whatever? I will be in the CBD so need to be within reach and I will be all by myself so would be really good to have some company, even if it's a day trip or something.

  7. hi im jasmine and i have now been in australia for about a mounth and im enjoying it i will be happy to ask any questions and for you to tell me a bout yourself heres my advice and thoughts leaving the family : leaving the family is the most hardest things you can do and it is definitly the hardest part of your journey, when i left there was tears and i mean a lot of tear.but your will see them again and if you and your family talk on the phone often then it wont be so bad i have this thing called skype you may ahve heard of it and every monday we talk to one of the family membes. but im not saying it wont be hard the plane ride : first let me tell you my advice and then what i thoughtwell here is my advice:go to sleep on the longest part of your jorney.there are tvs on the back of the chairs and is packed with movies and games and all sortsthere is even a camra on the tail and the nose and underneath the plane so you can watch from points of veiw of didfrent places on the plane they will have drinks come roung often with snacks like chocolate and chrisps and biscuts alots so you wont get hungrey. the food on the plane is nice but i supsose what you have and who you fly with. getting to know your area: my advice : get a car there up the road is a car drive away and is NOT walkable trust me i have tried. my thoughts :it is hard getting to know you area and your neighbers where i live at the moment (im renting a house )has a lot of asian and not many australian or english and plus it is VERY quite well tank you for reading and i hope that you reply best of luck jasmine
  8. Hi Everyone Our departure to Perth is getting closer! 17th April, I am very nervous. Due to my husband managing to secure a job, we have own container at the cost of 2,000 pounds. This is half empty so if anyone is leaving around the same time or needs anything taken over, please get in touch. I'd also love to hear from anyone who had settled in Perth, how things have gone and is it all worth it? Take care all!

  12. Britvics Meet up. After the wash out last month we will try again for a meet up at Cardinia Park just outside Berwick on Saturday 17th January. The park is off Wellington Road. Once you turn into the park follow the signs for Crystal Brook Picnic Area. There are BBQS, toilets & kids play area at this part of the park. No bins provided so bring a bag to take home your rubbish. I will get there around Midday & pin up an Aussie flag around the Gazebo so everyone knows where to come. Look forward to seeing old & new faces.

  18. Hi all, again I made the sacrifice to go out in this beautiful weather yesterday and check out the beaches and facilities and as a result have decided on Bulcock beach (Caloundra) as the place to have our Brunch on 17th August. It is a lovely beach, plenty of barbecues and a playing area for children. Everyone welcome!! So bring along some food to grill, some drinks and a good mood! See you there!! Kama

  20. Britain 17th in world's quality of life index - Telegraph According to a study that compares the economies of 183 countries, Britain does not even make the top 40 in the list of hospital beds per 1,000 people. Norway tops the "human development" - or quality of life - index, followed by Iceland and Australia. Things are even worse for British children, who come 21st in the "child well-being" index, which is headed by Holland. However, the news is not all bleak. The country is world leader for attracting investment from foreign countries and the figure for carbon emissions per person is less than half that of America. advertisement Pocket World in Figures 2008, published by The Economist, takes an annual look at 200 economic markers as diverse as contraception use, children's well-being and murders and executions. There are some surprises. Despite British house prices rocketing 196 per cent between 1997 and 2006, the inflation rate lags behind South Africa (351 per cent) and Ireland (253 per cent). Looking at property price rises year on year, the UK is ninth in the table. London, however, still has the highest office rents of any city on the planet. British music lovers spend more per head on recordings and downloads than anyone else - about £18 per year, although this may be because they are more expensive than elsewhere. Britons are also the sixth most regular cinema-goers. The country also has more mobile phones than people - averaging 109.8 handsets for every 100 of the population. Despite 98.3 televisions for every 100 households, the UK is only joint 13th in a table where Belgium is top. It also has the third highest ownership of CD players and 12th highest for computers. With 78.7 vehicles for every kilometre of road, Britain has the 15th most crowded roads. Stephen Brough, the editor of the book, said: "The -surprising finds this year are that there are two countries where house prices have gone up by more than us over the past decade; and that we spend the most per head on music. "In other categories we are not as badly off as people think. Despite concerns over binge drinking, we are not, per head, among the world's biggest beer-drinking nations." Life expectancy in the UK is predicted to be 79.4 years per person up to 2010 but this is only the 22nd highest in the world, alongside Germany, Malta and Belgium. Andorra's 83.5 is highest. British women are second only to the Chinese in the use of modern methods of contraception. The country is absent from the top 40 index of hospital beds per 1,000 people - although Slovakia, Cuba and Belarus all make the list.
