Oh ek paklaihung, that sounds a bit drastic. Can you not talk your wife & daughter into at least coming over with you for a holiday & validating their visas. At least then if they change their minds they've got another 4 yers!!!

It might be worth you doing a new thread of your own to meet people & ask about builders as most of the folks on this thread are over an hrs drive south of Perth. Of course if you end up down this way, give us a yell with pleasure. We don't know any builders personally, but I can't speak for the others. There is lots of building work going on south of the river & north. When you get here buy The West Australian newspaper on Wed & Sat, there's lots of jobs in there & fetch some cv's too. Good luck to you hun X

Hi Everyone, Yes that's still fine with us, although the weather for the end of the week is not looking to much like pool weather at the mo! 25c is looking like winter woolies weather, LOL!

It's ok with us if Deb's doesn't want to do it, we can still do a meet up at the usual place or some where different if anyone has any suggestions. X

hi everyone

 

haven't been able to make any of the previous meet-ups due to work commitments, just wondering if there were any plans over the long weekend for a get-together or another meet in the near future?

Hello, we are John, Michelle, Charlie & Ashley, not in Mandurah yet we fly out to Oz at the end of November. We will be staying NOR with friends for a couple of weeks and then moving down, just trying to book a holiday let at the minute, We are looking to book somewhere for 3-4 weeks to cover christmas and first week of Jan, hopefully we will find a permanent rental in that time. If you know of anywhere for a short term let would be interested to know. Our 2 girls are 8 and 5 and really looking forward to coming over and getting to know new people.

 

Not sure where we are going to live yet, all depends on schools and housing availability but will be Mandurah somewhere. Would be lovely to start getting to know people before we move over.

 

Currently just going through the overwhelming task of getting organised, have all the shippers round in the next 2 weeks to quote, but the best bit is the flights are booked :)

 

We will probably have a few questions on things before we come out so sorry in advance and look forward to meeting some of you when we get there :)

Hi Alli, July isn't too far away is it how are you getting on? Have you used shippers? We have to live regional when we get there which is why we have chosen mandurah, looks nice though. Are your girls excited?

hi Michelle, you have made a great choice in Mandurah, lol!! We love it here!

Make sure you book up early for a short term rental over the Xmas period, Mandurah is a "holiday" town so places will be in short supply. Feel free to get in touch if you want to ask any questions and good luck with all the organising: I remember it well!

Hi Jill, thanks, i am having trouble getting a reasonable priced rental at the minute so we may rent somewhere NOR and travel down to find a perm rental look at schools etc. May i ask which part you have settled in? Do you also have any children? We have looked at the attendance and average marks for all the primary schools and they all seem much the same, but i have been told Dudley park is very good. So much to do :) Very excited though

Hi this is Deb

Just stumbled across this email tonight whilst i was looking for something else.

Yes i am Josh's mum. Thanks for giving Josh a lift when we lived on the Anchorage Estate. You dont know how grateful i was with everything being new and all and Josh settling into school.

Yes i live in Secret Harbour now, where do you live?

If you want to pm me we can swap details and keep in touch if you like.

Sorry that i never noticed this email before. My computer normally advises me that i have emails from Poms in Oz but i dont think it notified me of this because i have never seen it until now!! :biggrin:


We arrived in Perth February 2010 & loving it!! :wink:

Hi there

Are you already in WA or do you mean you will be arriving here at the start of July?

We live in Secret Harbour not far from Mandurah and have been here 16 months now.

 

We met up with a few people from PIO in the summer and made some friends. If you want us to arrange something we can, just let us know :biggrin:
