Hi SallyClaire

WELCOME TO AUSTRALIA.
So what do you think so far, where are you staying?
Not been in BE much lately as working away a lot (in lovely Mackay..uuuuum, not so lovely) and when in Cairns very busy making up for when I was in Mackay..so busy, busy, busy.
Did you find work as my other half has started working for a company that employs nurses privately..and many work part time there and part time at Cairns base, you would have a nice boss..and English!! My OH.
We can speak to you about it on Saturday.
Let us know how you are finding Cairns, warm enough for you?
Jens parents arrive this Thurs for 2 months....YIKES!!!!!

Lizx

OMG! In-laws for 2 months Are you bringing them along next Saturday?
What's wrong with Mackay?
Have job on renal dialysis unit, still to negotiate start date
Staying at 181 Esplanade, very nice!
Confused about where to settle though, too many choices, decisions etc.
Look forward to meeting you & Jen next weekend, hopefully be a bit more organised by then

Tis a bargain.
Seller buys a round when 20th ticket is sold.

That is break even - seeing as you have managed to arrange a meet of about 5000 people I will buy the round after the 40th ticket is sold! (Local beer and spirits only)

That's a deal.
Who's bringing the straws ?

And what sort of car is it I hear people asking.

Trying very hard not to get done for spamming British expats:

1 Hyundai Getz $10500 ono
1 Hyundai Elantra $16500 ono

Both have 4 yr warranty, registered Nov 2007! BARGAIN!!! Someone buy them as I really don't want to drive to Melbourne!

I reckon the Bix family could do with a couple more cars!

EDIT: Of course this is all about the Cairns expat meet up raffle!!!

I'm going to report you for advertising on the forum now. Shocking behaviour

I thought we may sneak them in seeing as they're meet up raffle prizes.

I'm not buying a ticket as we already have 4 cars here. I'm already thinking of selling up and buying a garage.

If you could make it $50 a ticket, it would be a great plan!
