Woke up yesterday morning with a huge hard lump on my ankle. Thought it was just another mozzie bite to start with (I've been bitten heaps by them since I've been here and that's with using repelant!) Well it got bigger, redder & started oozing, so this morning I nipped down to the pharmacy....and they've told me it's a spider bite as they could see the 2 puncture marks! When i looked more closely I could see what they ment. (I'm not as flexable as I used to be & looking at my ankle up close ain't that easy! lol!) It's not that painfull, just itchy & annoying! They gave me antihistamines & say it should be much better in a weeks time. We've had 4 redbacks in our outdoor sitting area so far...have sprayed, squashed & fully treated the area now! The pharmasist said that if it was a redback it's only gonna kill you if you're a baby or toddler, and that I would only be likely to feel rather unwell for a few days! Relief! I feel fine, so don't think it was one of those! I reckon the spider must have bit me in my bed, so I'm off to strip the bed & wash the bedding again....which I'm doing once or twice a week already! To think I had a massive spider phobia a couple of years back, now I'm living with them, and even sharing my bed with them! Mags x
Hi everyone. This is our first time posting here. Having never considered Australia or even emigrating before we've suddenly been bitten by this overwhelming bug to throw eveything we've ever known to the wind and move out to WA. Very daunting. I'm Kevin, my wife to be is Helen and we have a two year old son Togi (it's his intials, the name just stuck). So, we're trying to weigh up our options. Should we marry quickly, would this favour the visa application process? Should we use an agent or should we go it alone? Will we get in? Helen is a part qualified accountant with a good education. I work in IT recruitment, have no education to speak of but get paid quite well. We've no convictions/health problems (touch wood) but are skeptical over packing everything up in the UK for anything less than PR status. I've read a lot on the visa's from the Australian government but it is all so confusing. Can you help? Many thanks Kevin
