  1. G'day, this is my first ever post. My husband has just been granted his spouse visa 2.12.11, and we are now seriously considering the Big move. Dilemma is we have a great life in Yorkshire, live in a very picturesque rural market town with 3 kids and really want to waste as little time as possible trudging round Oz waiting for somewhere to grab us. We have visited Gold coast a few times and love it but not sure that's where we want to be based long term, I'm thinking is anyone out there between Brisbane and Byron living the dream? Any advice is warmly welcomed....x

    Less than 4 weeks til we go - eek!

    So much to do, so little time! The past few months have really flown by, and I anticipate the next 26 days will go even faster. I'm keeping an Excel spreadsheet with a 'to do' list, happily ticking things off every day. Still have tons of forms to fill in for shipping, letting, tax blah blah. Sorted landlord insurance and cancelled normal house insurance, cancelled o2 contract, cancelled Virgin Media. Phew! Hubby left work yesterday so can take over getting rid of junk. I leave Thursday next week, and am already emotional having said goodbye to colleagues who've gone on leave. Gonna be in bits next week! Will be adding loads of facebook friends ) Next weekend going to Berlin, a trip that was organised before Australia was on the radar! Followed by 3 days of getting ready for the shippers. Shipping out 14th October. Family (hubby's) leaving party 15th October, followed by meals out with folk who won't be there. Goodbye trip the following week to Liverpool (where I lived for 16 years) and see my wee brother in Yorkshire plus a diversion to Manchester to see Glen Campbell on his farewell tour! Then we have 5 days at our sparsely furnished home to finish cleaning, painting and packing. Then... 5 days of pure relaxation in LA en route to Brisbane. Gonna need that! And after a direct 14 hour flight from LA to Bris we'll have finally made it. Arriving early morning, we'll be going straight to temp accommodation. Well worth paying an extra night not to hang around! And then I guess we start normal life - grocery shopping, househunting etc. Just needed to get that off my chest - it actually helps to get it all written down :biggrin:

    We are gonna do it!! eek!!!

    Well hubby (Gord) has been offered his job and we have decided we are going to do it and come to Australia!!! We seem to have been completely had by the government in this country so we want a new start in a country that appreciates you.:wink: Could i just ask though does anyone know if you can get Aptamil baby milk out there? Our youngest is only 3 months so will still be on the milk. She doesn't agree with SMA so we can't swap her to that. Is there another similar milk out there to any uk ones that we could swap her to before we come to get her used to it? Help would be very much appreciated. We have only just started telling family that we are moving and you can feel the shock waves. Don't think anyone believed that we would really do it. My mum has said she won't fly out there though (she has only flown to Ireland) and this is breaking my heart and is the only thing that is a negative for me. Keep crying.:cry: Did anyone else have this scenario but they still come to see you? I'm working on my brother to try and pursuade my mum to come out with him. I'm so close to her.xxx
