    Eee By Gum, It's A Warm One.

    Well looks like another very sunny day (possibly 32 degrees) here in Hertfordshire. The sky is: The ceiling fan in my conservatory/office is: My idiotic Bulldog is doing his best to sunbathe, won't be happy when I insert an ice cube up his rectum to cool him down (tip and true folks,:huh:). And for all intents and purpose a lovely day, ahhh, all I need is the planes to start going overhead from Heathrow and happy as Larry, (or should that be Bruce). No but seriously folks, I may get my 'Didge' out later and have a sing song, that should be enough to make the family and neibhours kick up a stink.:biglaugh: Make the most of it people, and for those of you fortunate enough to be on the migration journey, jolly good luck to you, and you have this to look forward to in the future. I know the weather can at times in OZ be a bit too much, but sure does make me feel a lot better,:yes: Cheers Tony.:cool:
  2. Hi My friend is visiting from the UK in August, its the only time of year she can come and I have explained about how cold it is in Melbourne that time of year. So I thought we could go away for a few days to somewhere warm and sunny...maybe Queensland. Anyone recommend somewhere nice for a short break that will offer better weather than Melbourne in August?? Thanks!
  3. Hello, I am a kiwi and grew up in Auckland, New Zealand and thus I know what 4 seasons in one day really means. My English husband and I are now thinking of a move to somewhere much warmer than London and Auckland so that our young kids can play outside for most of the year and that we can eat in the garden for the majority of the summer months. Is the weather in Melbourne really conducive to this sort of lifestyle?

    Saw a thread about sun tan lotion the other day. For God's sake, cake yourself in it. We went to Yanchep Lagoon this morning and I missed a section on my back. Just been howling in agony in the shower. Was 40 degrees apparently, went a bit cloudy later on (although that's deceiving). Its 10pm now and its gotta be over 30 still.
  6. Hi folks, Can you help me out here, ongoing argument with oh about the temperatures in Melbourne in the Winter and the fact it does get cold there. So can someone tell me how you keep warm in winter???? By that I mean, how do you heat your house???? Oh is thinking he will be waking up in the morning with frostbite because houses have no form of heating, so can you help me out here and tell me how you do keep yourself and the house warm in winter. Many thanks, Mandisfam
  7. After being totally new to this site and fairly new to the Gold Coast, I put up a post to meet people. Snow White (Lesley) very kindly replied. Not only has she been extremely welcoming and informative, she has become a very good friend. Our social life has escallated (as in we now have one!!) and we have also been lucky enough to meet other great people through her. Unfortunately when we reloated we were unaware, but she actually does relocations (www.expatrelocations.com) and knowing what I know now, I certainly wouldn't have hesitated to use her services. There's nothing or no one she doesn't know and if she can help - she does! What I'm trying to say is if you are emigrating or have already emigrated and its all getting a bit much, don't worry as there is light at the end of the tunnel :yes: and I just wanted to say THANK YOU x

    warm hello to you all

    Hello to you all, the lucky ones, if you are already over there! My OH Matt and I are in the process of making the move. OH in discussions with HR department and our house is on the market, for less than we paid for it 18 months ago, of course (yeah yeah I hear you all say, all in the same sinky boat!) :no: Our minds are pretty stuck on Adelaide...any comments? pro's and con's (bring em on) We've had 8 years here in UK and... enough, this summer would finally finish me off if it wasn't for the light at the end of the tunnel. Really worried about my little dog in quaranteen (is that how you spell it??) for 30 days too and I won't be able to see him :unsure: Lovely forum very helpful, thanks, good luck & love to you all clare
  10. A WARM WELCOME WHEN IT’S COLD IN MELBOURNE The rather attractive landlady says it takes a certain understanding of people to run a bed-and-breakfast... Wendy Robinson travelled the world as a BOAC air-hostess, learning how to handle the moods of capricious passengers; and despite their occasionally demanding behaviour, she left her flying career in VC10s and 707s still liking people. She and her husband had friends come and stay for weekends in their large house in the English countryside, and later, on their farm in Benalla, Victoria, they took on paying guests. The next ‘people business’ was B&B, and today Wendy and her partner, Jonathan Wright, operate an aristocratic old guest-house on the St.Kilda foreshore, (which TV’s globe-trotting George Negus, a regular, describes as ‘a bit special, quirky and thoughtful’). The Robinsons by the Sea entry in the B&B guide-books depicts it as ‘an elegant bed and breakfast inn’. ‘Elegant’ is perhaps the wrong word. ‘Thoughtful,’ (as Negus says), is more appropriate. The two-storey house on Beaconsfield Parade is 130 years old, a haughty edifice with the same black iron gate that swung open to ladies in large hats and gentlemen swinging canes. Once inside, the guest is lost in a melange of Balinese masks, an ancient monkey cage, chandeliers, statuettes and Victoriana. Tiles around the fire-places are painted with lilies; a pair of hand-made children’s riding-boots stand in the hallway; library shelves groan with thrillers, romances and biographies; the philosophy of an Indian mystic is left - thoughtfully - on a bedside table. If you wish to settle into the sofa in the front drawing-room, mind Periwinkle, the cat, asleep on a cushion; Wendy’s two well-behaved dogs slumber nearby. A tray of sherries stands on a table in the corner; like the champagne, wines and beer in the ‘fridge, they are to be partaken under the honour system; you sign for them. Upstairs you have the choice of five quiet boudoirs (‘bedsittingrooms’ would hardly do them justice), with king and queen-size beds, fluffy doonas and draped canopies. Antique armchairs stand next to tables set with crystal glasses and decanters; Eastern artefacts, bric-a-brac and vivid paintings give the lodger the impression of a comfortably eccentric country house set in another era. Just along the passage, heated bathrooms, one with a spa, have wicker baskets overflowing with towels, shampoos, conditioners, razors and scents. A basket of chocolates awaits by the phone, payment going to Crime Stoppers. And then there is the ‘breakfast’ part of the B&B. Wendy says it’s easy to identify the first time B&B people: they are shy at joining other guests at the large dining-room table. But once they smell the freshly-ground plunger coffee, taste the croissants, smoked trout, smoked salmon and Redlich sausages, hesitancy is forgotten and breakfast can dawdle on chattily towards noon. Where are you from? What are you going to do today? Where will we have lunch? What tram do we catch? Wendy has the answers, "but I try not to hover, or get too involved." The Visitors’ Book has the comments ‘restful’, ‘home away from home’ and ‘charming’. The one Wendy likes best is : ‘We’ll be back.’
