Default Decent/usefull/ interesting Web sites......

Has anyone come across a usefull website that they think might be usefull to others on here, I thought I would start a wee list if other people fancy helping out.

Some of them I have got off here but you have to search back through the thread to get them. Appologies if this has been done before, but I had a few glasses of wine, and rather than drive myself mental waiting on a visa, thought I might do something that reminds me that I'm waiting on a visa !!!

Anyway, I have found this one usefull for checking for TV programs about Oz.

I think I got off here ages ago.

Much love
Shona

Nice idea Shona!

Hope the hangovers not too bad tomorrow!

I've put a couple of shopping websites together which others should find useful:

Online Shopping in Australia

UK Shops Delivering Worldwide

I also love checking out the surf cams:

Take care

Also http://www.voucherexpress.co.uk/ has been brilliant for all those birthdays in the UK
