    Getting pretty excited now. Have said our goodbyes to good friends and family back home which was tough and now have to do it again this week and next as we are currently in Portsmouth visiting my sister and then heading to Wiltshire for 5 days on Thursday to visit Pete's family. It's a glorious day here today in Portsmouth and we are making the most of it and are off to Southsea seafront with the kids. Looking forward to getting to Canberra and starting our new life and hopefully see you all at the next meet up on 30th October. Cheers Claire, pete and family
  2. The removal men: Pickfords is on Channel 5 today (6th July 2011) at 20:00 Not sure if anyone else has posted about this but I thought this might be of interest to anyone else who like us is trying to work out which removal company to entrust with shipping all our treasured possessions over the other side of the world! Not too sure what kind of a light it's going to portray Pickfords but as we've never used a removal company (always a Luton and our own muscle power) it'll be of interest to us. :wink:

  6. THE ANGELS | PRESS RELEASE | 6th April 2010 Not Since The Beatles! In June 1964, over two hundred thousand people saw The Beatles show Adelaide how to play at the Adelaide Town Hall for a Mayoral Civic Reception. Now… The Adelaide Lord Mayor is to honour classic rock band The Angels in the same way, with one exception, The Angels don’t need to show their hometown anything, they already know how to Rock! The Angels have been invited to a Lord Mayoral Reception at Adelaide Town Hall hosted by Lord Mayor Michael Harbison, on Friday 16 April, the eve of their Orchestral Collaboration debut ‘Symphony Of Angels”. Doc Neeson, Chris Bailey, Buzz Bidstrup, John and Rick Brewster will be receiving this prestigious honour personally in front of family, friends and lucky fans. In the past month The Angels have been unveiling a chain of amazing events including the release of a new classical version of their monster hit ‘Take A Long Line’ which was produced by the band. The new track was met with such an astounding response, that the Triple M network with Ugly Phil picked up the new single the same day it was released and the switchboard lit up with requests, something that Triple M hasn’t seen in a while with a new song. Channel Nine’s high rating weekend show ‘Postcards’ aired on Sunday 21st March in Adelaide to one of the shows strongest weekend ratings. The show featured a behind the scenes peek at the recording of the new orchestral release of “Take A Long Line” at Alberts Studios in Sydney and the orchestra rehearsal at The Town Hall in Adelaide and MixMaster studios. Popular ABC show Spicks and Specs have recently invited Doc Neeson to appear on the Show, the pre-recorded segment will go to air on Wednesday the 14th of April, don’t miss the comedy and fun that will unfold with a few surprises.

    6th day today!!

    Hi all We have arrived in Brisbane and are loving it! We thought we would update you all on our adventures in Brissey to date! We are stopping in Samford Valley for 4 weeks (very posh, very expensive but very lovely!) whilst we orientate ourselves and get things arranged like long term rent, car, school etc. On the school side, hopefully kids start tomorrow following meeting last week with principle, need to buy unifom today, more money!! We have had a drive around several suburbs near to our place of work and have narrowed it down (due to cost, location to work and access to train into city) to Bray Park, Warner, Petrie, Joyner... any other ideas anyone or any thoughts on these areas? More importantly, areas to stay clear of!!!! We have visited a garage to look at used cars, again very expensive, and have identified one which we will pursue this week whilst kids are in school. Going to meet our new bosses today and tomorrow so will have a better idea of what's expected of us then. As well as the suburbs we have visited the City, Soutbank (cool beach and lagoon), Bribie Island and today we are off to Redcliffe. Any info or advice would be good Tony, Marie & girls

I am a Retail General Manager with 15 years experience in large site management. Anyone have any ideas of who the best agency / contact would be in the Sydney area? Any ideas welcome!

    Leaving on 6th Sept

    Hi Guys Not been on here much recently as things have been so hectic, but we leave the UK in 2 weeks. Have left work now, which is a little strange after being there for 12 years but has not sunk in yet. Going through lots of emotions at the moment but mostly excitement, although the next two weeks I think are going to be the hardest. I keep thinking of that moment when I am stood in my house in Brisbane, saying goodbye to OH who is going to work and sending my son to school and getting this sudden overwhelming feeling of being on my own....... I guess thats the moment I hit the shops or PIO :biglaugh: It has been a very long and emotional road and I fink it is just about to get harder:swoon:

  21. Hiya folks -- My name is Nicole, and I'm a 6th generation Aussie who lives in the Adelaide Hills. I was born and raised here in the Hills, and have lived here all my life, save for a short stint when I was about 19 where I lived in Melbourne for a year. Can't say I took to Melbourne much, but that's just me. Too big, too busy, and too much traffic. Not enough room to move for a girl like me (I say 'girl'...I am 33 years old :lol: ) Anyway, my ancestors were free settlers from England who landed here in Adelaide, and my family have been here since. Sure, we've spread out a bit -- I have aunts, uncles and cousins in Perth, Brisbane, Darwin, and country NSW. I've travelled the country pretty widely, and I've visited every capital city. I assure you, I wouldn't trade Adelaide for all the tea in China. Here's why: * It's a nice sized city of about a million people. We don't know traffic jams. We are known as "the 20 minute city" as you can get anywhere you want to be inside 20 minutes. I admit, that's an exageration, as Adelaide is quite spread out. But the traffic is easy here -- unlike Sydney and Melbourne, where I personally feel claustrophobic. I can't move! * Because it is a city of a million odd people, it has all the facilities you want. Parks, playgrounds, cinemas, festivals, pubs, nightlife, theatre, libraries, museums, 3 universities, Tafe (ie Tech school), plenty of sporting venues, etc * Beaches. Basically, Adelaide sits on one enormous, long, broad, sandy beach. The beaches are clean, easily accessible, and you won't walk barefoot and tread on a syringe (unlike say, St Kilda beach in Melbourne where at least when I was there 10 years ago that used to be a concern) * The Adelaide Hills. 20 minutes from the CBD and your in the Hills (where I live). Lots of places for bushwalks, BBQs and picnics. Little country towns which would not have the charm of your average English village, but they are very nice regardless * Low crime. Look sure, we have crime, and drugs, and all that rubbish that all cities have. But there's far less of it here than there is in Sydney and Melbourne * Families: all of the above means that Adelaide is a great spot to raise kids. I have a boy myself. *Weather. We have 4 season's, and admittedly summer is long, hot, and dry. That's Australia mates, so get used to it. I'd think that as Poms you'd go into shock if you didn't buy a house here with good, efficient air conditioning. But you do get used to the heat. We're just getting in to the warmer weather now, where it's 30 to 35 most days. It takes a little adjustment. (Come January/February, when we're regularly at 38-40, we tend to yearn for a 'cool' low 30s day :lol: ). But, the good weather means there's plenty of time for the Great Outdoors. There's always a nice beach not far to splash around in, maybe eat some fish & chips and watch the sun go down (one of my families favourites). And from October to April who needs an oven? You just whack a bit of meat on the BBQ, throw together a salad, and eat outside. Hardly any dishes, so it's bloody marvellous! Ok, that's my hard sell out of the way! I will temper it with the reality that Poms need to come to Oz with a fairly thick skin, because the minute your shoes hit the tarmac, you're probably going to get hit with the "bath dodging whinging pom" tag. By advice is to pay it no mind and take it in good grace. Aussies don't mean anything by it. Everyone cops it here...the wogs, the wops, the dagos, the lot. In most cases, it is simply met as a bit of friendly banter. In a few cases it is not. Avoid such people, because they're aholes. All countries have their share, including Australia, unfortunately. Such is life! In parting, I will say two things: 1) If anyone is looking to move to Adelaide, feel free to ask me about whatever suburb you are looking at. Some of them are downright horrid! 2) I run an Australian political debate board, where Australian's argue the toss about politics, terrorism, beer, BBQs, & bulldust! If you want to know how Aussies think and feel, please feel free to join us! I won't link it here, as it is not my intention to 'pilfer' from this site or any other such nonsense. But if you're a Pom who wants to chat with Aussies, please feel free to PM me, and I'll forward you the link. Good luck with your move to Australia. I'm rather fond of the old Commonwealth myself. Cheers Nicole
