Hi Guys Hope your all well. We've been in Oz now for a year and its been a bit of a rollercoaster with work. I came out as a plasterer and have not done that now for a while could'nt really get in to it. Had a well paid job cleaning but lost that in August and was back out of work again for about 6 weeks. I'm now working as a carpet cleaner for a pest control company which I'm enjoying, it comes with a van phone and uniform and I'm enployed so they get the work. Its nice to have permanet work for the 1st time and we're busy. Their a good bunch of lads a the bose is a nice bloke who told me over 400 people applied for the position so did'nt I do well. I hope you all are happy and things are happening visa wise. I see some familar names are still on here. Its pretty hot at the moment and still getting the rain. I see Uk is getting unsual weather too. Coming on pio now seems surreal as it was so important in getting our visa and I made friends I still hope to meet someday. Its all good with us after a rocky start and we don't want to be anywhere else. Merry Xmas and Happy New year to all my cyber bubbies and I hope it all comes right for you all. Luv Lance
Hi all Just thought I'll let you know how we have been getting on all the way downunder. We arrived on the 15th Dec and spent the 1st 3 weeks in Perigain Springs in holiday mode and looking for somewhere to live. We found a house in Buderim which is a very nice town with everything you could want and it is nice and central. The house is nice and big and backs on to a woods so we get everything from huge stick insects too kangeroos in the garden as well as the dreaded Huntsman in the house. I'm not normanly scared of spiders but they are so fast its not right. Both our girls (15 and 10) have settled in better than we could have hoped for and have made lots of friends and I have not heard "I'm bored" since we've been here. Alice goes out on her friends boat and down to the beach., and we all go out fishing, hunting in the rock pools swimming in waterfall in the park and have not sat about doing nothing yet. I think we're going to Australia Zoo this weekend. Work. I got my visa as a renderer and have struggled to get work. The guy I worked for told us to look for other work last month because he had none. His firm has been on the Sunshine Coast for 18 years and has a good rep; but with so many plasterers under cutting to get work theres no money left in it any more so I have decided to give it up. You can earn more cleaning which is what I am now doing. I got a full time job last week cleaning a hotel. I start at 3am but its good money. On the same day I got this job Sharon all so got a full time job after 6 months of trying as a shop assisant so we have turned the corner thank god. At Easter we at rock bottom and were down to $2 honestly. Do I regret coming? No defintly not. No one said it would be easy and we never expected it to be. We have stuck at it and have met loads of people. I have found the Australians to be helpful and friendly. All the idiots I've met and thats only been 2 have been English. Anyway speak soon Carls (yorkshireclan) arriving next month. Luv Lance
