Question Anyone in suffolk?

Hi,

we're (me, hubby & 2 boys ages 9 and 7) are waiting to apply for a business 163 visa. We need to build turnover up then we can apply aug 08. we're looking at going to Brisbane and are planning a reccie trip in Feb. We went over to Perth last year but decided it wasn't for us and have opted for queensland as we have friends and some family there.

We live just outside Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk and would love to meet up with like minded people looking to escape the UK!!!!

anyone live near by??????

Hi, well we have friends in Maloolaba (near to) and thought this might be a good start! We've never been to queensland, we visited Perth 2 years ago and loved it but felt it maybe too quiet for us so decided on Brisbane. Our plans are on hold at the moment though because of family problems but it is still our dream in the future. You don't miss good old Bury then!!!!???????

Fornham St Martin, we came over 13 months ago.

If you went to the Moreton Hall Social club maybe you knew Danny Welch?

If only it were that simple! I'd be there tomorrow, but at the moment it's not possible. We still plan to sometime in the future, but when, well that's another question.

We'll explain when Sean rings! (You can ring us you know!) Ha Ha

I was going to call you yesterday but we don't have any credit on our calling card. Our phone doesn't make direct international calls (due to David making $300 of calls in 1 month)
I'll try and pick up a card in the next day or so. Remember we earn far less over here than you do :-)
