  2. Not only have all our meds been finalised today, but I received my AHPRA letter today. I have stressed about this for soooooo long, due to being non diploma/degree trained. But after a lengthy period it is all glowing in the world of AHPRA for me. So if there are any nurses worried about meeting the standards etc etc be patient. Good things come to those who wait ..... and wait. Thanks to all who shared my stress and listened to my massive rants on here Rachel x :jiggy:
  3. Hi, Could somebody confirm for me, when the schools go back in July, I think it's the 18th, just wondering if we could visit one or two on the Northern beach area when we're out for a reccie in July/August. Do the schools mind? Any recommendation? We're on a 457, so think we will be looking at Catholic schools, but we're not Catholics. I've also looked at what I think is the NSW writing style, it doesn't seem too different to ours, or have I missed something. Oh and we have 2 girls, 5 (6 in October) and 8 (9 in March) All advice appreciated thanks Cal:biggrin:
  4. Hi everyone was looking for advice on cost of living in Perth, me the wife and our 2 boys 3 and 4. We are hoping to move in the next 6 months and my wife is a midwife and has secured a position with WA govt .

  5. Hi everyone and appologise if this threads alreadybeen done. The time for us to move is fast approaching, started to get removal companys in for quotes and they all seem to be coming back around the 4k mark with free this and that. Now I'm just wondering if anyone has gone down the route of packing their own stuff, organising their own container and transport to dock, then shipping of container and then transport from dock after fee's and customs have been dealt with. Just wondering if anyones gotany pointers, companies, horror stories or just plain advice. Maybe I'm just being stupid thinking about going down this route. Shane, Kerry, Jessica & new born Callum

    Death, Black Style.

    Just been watching a programme on a community of black people in Miami. Unfortunately a death occurred within one family and as normal there were tears, sorrow, etc, BUT. When the funeral came along in their local community church the atmosphere was so different to what we do. No rights or wrongs I guess, but the black congregation did seem to 'celebrate' the life of the poor fella involved. Of course there were tears and sadness, but they were dancing, singing, all sorts of shinanaghans going on. As I said I'm not saying either is right or wrong, our way of doing things or the black community involved. Not saying they were having a good time either, but it did seem to me that the congregation had a 'better' attitude to the passing of a loved one, could be wrong though. So just why do 'we' seem to have a completely view of funerals and death. After all they were christians as well, but the actual funeral seemed to a wholly different animal to the one I have experienced. I know which funeral I would rather have been at, well, the 'feel' of it anyway. Cheers Tony.
  7. G'day all New to this site, but would like to let everyone know about me British Style fish and chip shop for those in the Melbourne area. I am ex Yorkshire (Bradford) bored with life and crap fish and chips, about 4 months ago, started me own chippie at 30 Stud Road, Dandenong, Vic 9794 6451. If you like good fish and chips, pop in and say ello. I have ordered North Sea Haddock and Cod, but don't hold your breath, I am no Harry Ramsdens, so the order may not be big enough for me small chippie/cafe. Their are tables for 14, with HP and malt vinegar as you would expect. Tables can be reserved, and I should have a BYO license soon. Everything is fresh, nothing pre cooked or frozen, with such goodies as Yorkshire fish cakes, mushy peas, haggis and black pudding, English pork pies, pickled eggs, gammon steaks and lots of other stuff. I am also looking for a business partner, so if if you, or anybody you know is looking for some easy work, making millions in the first year and retire in the second, give me a call, or pop in. Open hours are 4 - 9 pm Tues to Fri and 12 - 9 pm Sat - Sun. A good sense of humour will help :-) Cheers Vic
  8. I had a removals firm out the other day and somehow we got onto talking about supermarkets. The guy was telling me that Coles supermarkets are head hunting a lot of managers etc, from the big 4 supermarkets as they want “ASDA style” stores being built in Australia. Now I’m not 100% sure if he said that 1 has already been built or is in the process of being built in Melbourne..... Personally I don’t think that is a good idea as I would hate to see the high streets of Australia start to disappear. I did work for a company about 10 years ago that transported as well as warehoused for Coles and I knew they had been looking at the UK system back then but that was more for building super warehouses, where everything came out of the 1 hub rather than lots of different depots. Anyway if it is true would you like to see an “ASDA style” store being built near you or do like using your local butchers etc and or heading out to an electronics store to buy your TV etc, or would you rather do it all under 1 roof?

    Election day Pomsinoz style

    Well since alot of us can't vote i thought it might be fun to run a one day poll on election day to see who we'd bring into power :cool: So fellow poms (and non poms that frequent the forum) cast your vote.
  10. July Issue Apart from all the hot fashion type and what guys really think (debatable not sure that they do :biglaugh:) I found some good ideas relating to cost of living in each State, remember this is based on a single woman. Sydney - Earnings $3000 per month (take home) to maintain the same standard of living in other States in Australia your earning would need to be: Melbourne $2688 Canberra $1951 Darwin $1903 Perth $1693 Brisbane $1557 Adelaide $1492 Hobart $1309 Cups of Coffee: Sydney $2.95 Melbourne $2.93 Canberra $3.50 Darwin $3.80 Perth $4.00 Brisbane $3.26 Adelaide $3.80 Hobart - Cosmo didnt print one but Im sure, absolutely sure they have coffee there! Public Holidays NSW - 12 days VIC - 12 days ACT - 12 days NT - 16 days WA - 10 days QLD - 11 days SA - 11 days TAS - 21 days (WOW! lots of days off but you cant get a coffee!) if you have kids and they've always had hampsters or a rabbit they are actually illegal to have as pets in QLD !... If you're looking for somewhere to live (single) try www.easyroommate.com.au it matches you up with people that have similar interests. Thanks Cosmo !

  12. Money is very tight at the moment and I am in the process of organising flights and the final vet work so my dog can fly back to the UK. I have been getting quotes for the cost of flights - most companies seem to include the cost of the final vet work and the option of a night's board at their kennels - but they are hugly expensive - around $3,000. However I have been quoted only $1,900 for just the flight (and travel crate). This would leave me to organise the final tick and flea treatment and get him to the airport. Has anyone else organised this for themselves? Money is tight and so if I can save what for me is a lot of money then it will be worth it.

    Mateship Australian style

    Out of all the tragedy comes this picture that is worth a thousand words,
  21. OK - I have done it.......after much searching and research, I have acheived that which I was told was impossible! I have found a book which gives recipes to make your own authentic (a matter of much debate!) British Indian Restaurant Recipes! Its no joke and I am gutted I will make no commission for this...but here goes... THE CURRY SECRET - Indian Restaurant Cookery at Home ISBN 978-0-7160-2054-7 It costs £4.99 and is not your glossy posh book, but a rudimentary and ruthlessly efficient means to provide the Oz public with a way to prepare decent 'authentic' British Currys! I have tried a few recipes and our whole family love them....Every time I use the book I put the money saved into our Australia account.....so saving a fortune cos we love curry. Recommend the tarka dal - YUMMY. I hope that helps you people....its made our decision to emigrate a no brainer! lol:biglaugh: To show your gratitude, when we arrive in the Brisbane area you can invite us round for a beer and a curry...lol:notworthy: Take care Adam

    CV style for jobs in Oz

    Hello, Can anyone give any tips on what a CV should look like to send out when job hunting in Australia? Is there any difference to how you'd write one for a UK employer? We are planning on going in March and were initially going to wait until we got there to start job hunting but have now decided to at least try and start the ball rolling now. Any handy hints gratefully received. Thank you. Clare
