  1. Don't get me wrong, I mean this on a more 'practical' level.:unsure: I guess we 'should' all listen to the worries and concerns of our other halves, in a perfect world this would be the case, but as as is the way of human relationships we often forget to 'listen' to those closest to us. Workwise, if your other half has had a sh7te day or alternatively good day and they either want to talk or rant do you just nod in agreement or actually listen and take i what they are saying,:idea: I guess we all get 'used' to other people, and I for one in the past cannot be excused for not wholeheartedly 'listening', but am a lot better now. In no small part because Ruth has certain 'conditions' and if I didn't listen she would rattle on all day,:biglaugh::biglaugh: And the reverse of this is that she doesn't really listen, not her fault, :wubclub: as her conditions often preclude such a path (too complicated to go into to,:goofy:) so that is why I talk to my dog(s) and the plant I have in the office.:biglaugh: But in the grand scheme of things 'listening' is an important part of everyday life, and I guess not just in relation to our nearest and dearest, but the 'world' as a whole. So what do you do, listen and take it in, or think, 'Not Again'.:no::arghh: If you'll excuse me I have a 'Yukka' plant that needs some quality time.:biglaugh::biglaugh: Cheers Tony.
  2. Just stating the obvious i know,BUT.....who can tell what luck oz has in store untill you get there/live there? I could break my leg in the first week and be unable to work/earn money for 6 months? On the other hand,,,,,,,,i could fall in with a diamond mate/neighbour who helps me find graft and end up aces?! Is there anyone else like me who doesnt care what others think?thats NOT meant in a snide/arrogant way btw,but because things do/dont work out for some people doesnt mean they will/wont for others does it? everyone has different goals/wants,nobodies goals/wants are the same. I honestly have NOT GOT A CLUE if we'l like oz or not,BUT i WONT base my opinion on oz on what others think of oz,coz tbh that wont affect how me and her think of oz will it? Surely to god youve GOT to go and find out for yerself?or is it just me???:goofy:
  3. Question is in the title really. If so do you like them? I think they are just brilliant. Claire
  4. After reading a few threads i came to realise that alot of people are having the same reaction to the whole immigration thing. i am a 25 year old, married mother of two and have been independant since i was about 16. My mum has always been my back bone of support and has always listened to my problems and advised me in the best paths to take in life. Although i always make my own decisions in the end her opinion does matter alot to me. During the begining application ie TRA everyone was so supportive. We even decided to save our money by not visiting australia for a holiday this year and concentrating on just making the move and my mum was 100% behind us.Everything was great and i felt relieved as we had not had any negative vibes from anyone, up untill a few weeks ago then my mum just stopped talking about it. It was like if i brought it up, which i seem to do alot she will just change the subject completely. It is really upseting as i need her support in this. I have voiced my feelings about her reaction but again she dismissed it completely. My husbands family are so supportive in it all. His mum has 2 brothers in Sydney and although we are headed for Brisbane they are 100% behind us saying its a completely different world, best move we will make, our carreers will carry us the list goes on. I want to share this experience with my mum and i know she will be hurting at the idea of loosing her daughter, SIL and grand children but i want the best life can possibly give me and my family and if oz is the place to get it then sorry i am grabbing it with 2 hands. Am i selfish? or does everyone go through this.......................... sorry to drag on :sad:
  5. I was sent this yesterday thought you mite like to read it Britain Needs A Leader Like This! Prime Minister John Howard - Australia Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia , as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks. <B> Separately, Howard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation's mosques. Quote: 'IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians.' </B> 'This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom' <B> 'We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society . Learn the language!' 'Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.' 'We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.' 'This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, 'THE RIGHT TO LEAVE'.' 'If you aren't happy here then LEAVE. We didn't force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.' </B> **********************************************************************
