Hi Jules, thanks again for the info, think we will wait till we come over to buy our cozy clothes!! Yeah I have been looking online at renting somewhere, but all the places i like are pretty expensive.
Hubby also said we may consider buying somewhere. Think we will rent when we initially come over and see how it goes. Is the shopping over there not too good? Should i stock up on my clothes (an excuse to go shopping! )

Do the kids start school age 6? My little boy was going to be starting primary school next August, when he is 5, but have read somewhere that they dont start until they are 6.

Jenny it would be best is you re-posted your questions in our Canada forums rather in the Introduction Section of the site. I think you'll also receive more input from people who are living in Canada or the Calgary area. Thank you.

I know just what you mean about the malls. I have a long very thick sheepskin leather coat...it is so warm I can only wear it on brutally cold days. It's far too heavy to take off and carry...it's like carrying another person around.
then you start trying to stuff it gently into one of the shopping bags and get even hotter trying!!!
my daughter took her lovely coat off the other day and put it in a trolley its a gorgeous coat i bought it in the uk to bring out in case it got cold and someone actually came along, picked it up and wanted to know where i had picked it up from as she wanted one!!! its not quite warm enough for the winter here tho, think i might buy a little jacket of some sort just until my clothes come over

ooops sorry i missed this one, am still quite new tho I know they start school in Oz at six but am pretty sure there is a kindergarten ? i know they start earlier in the school i have my daughter in! maybe best to ask the canada forum that one! We are now looking at houses to buy and they are gorgeous, but be prepared to put down a deposit when you put in an offer it takes only a matter of a few weeks over here as opposed to months in the UK, we have a great realtor who has shown us some great houses but we found one on a house open day whilst looking around an area.
And hey any excuse to go shopping no good asking me if you need to go shopping because i will always say yes i am very bad and should be kept away from all shops hehe i will try to sort out my private message thingummy! But you can get lots of help on here and i am very happy to answer any too.

Let me know if you have a problem reading inward bound messages. The number in the top left hand corner will change from O to whatever number of messages are received.
