We didn't have a bath in our rental either, I guess it must be the norm. The first thing we did when we bought our house was have a bath!!! Sad aren't we? lol

Hi all

Hope everyone is good.

We have just returned from a fantastic trip to Sydney, it is an amazing city! We went up the Sydney Tower for great views, the Aquarium for the kids, took the ferry to Manly Beach, and admired the surf dudes (well, I did anyway!) had a sunset cocktail cruise around the harbour, walked around the Botanic Gardens, sat on the steps of the Opera House and ate fish and chips at Doyles on the Quay.

We are now knackered and broke!!

Nice to come back home for peace and natural beauty

Sam

Did our citizenship tests yesterday, easy if you read the book.

The best guitar shop in Hobart is McCanns but I don't think they stock PRS, just the usual Fender, Gibson etc.

Cool, how long do you have to be in Aus to get the Citizenship? And how was your trip to Blighty?

We'll have been here on a PR visa for 2 years at the end of Nov so we can apply then, and the ceremony is on Australia Day at Sandy Bay seafront.

Trip to the UK was good as far as seeing the rellies went, flights on Singapore were excellent, first leg Syd-Sin on an A380. Didn't enjoy being back in the UK so much, too crowded/aggressive etc but we went for lots of walks in the Lakes and enjoyed some good pub meals-much better than counter meals here in Hobart!
