Traybears (tracy) has asked if i will start up a poll for her,so here goes ill try my best,,


If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

Didn't help having to watch wanted down under for 5 weeks while i worked knowing i only came back from here in January and it would take for every for us to get everything together as i heard I would have to attend an interview at the embassy Just glad people where trying to scare me off the idea failed to scare me.

I have been on a couple of long holidays to Brissy area (which is where we are planning to start out). OH has never been there yet and we do not plan on doing a reccy. He says he trusts my judgement- poor deluded fool!!!:wacko:

 

My Mum does live on the Gold coast though and so we will have some family support(emotional) when we get there!

 

We are heading to Sunshine Coast as I have been offered a job in Nambour.:smile:

My husband was out here on business in 2005 for a total of 4 months, although not all in one go. He loved Sydney but it took a while to persuade me! I had never been.

 

Have been in Sydney just over 2 months now and so far so good!!

Yes I am mad too! Never been but heard so much from friends, work colleagues and my own daughter that I can't wait to give it a go. I don't even have any doubts I know thats odd but its the case.

Both my parents have passed away so I will be leaving no one behind perhaps thats what makes the decision easier for me. Plus I am 40 for goodness sake, if I dont't try something different soon I may just go mad!:goofy:

We had just gt married and David had to go out and work in oz for just under 3 months , so I thought he not going without me so I jacked my job in and went with him, ( couldnt really afford but thought what the heck). !!!!!

He then had several more trps working in oz whilst i looked after our darling (wicked) little boys. Then opportunity came for us all to come out on a holiday for a month 7 yrs ago , we wanted to move out then, but timing wasnt right ( i know its never the right time)

January this year we started to think lets go for it (still crap timing ) but it was now or never.!!!!
