Yup were definates, me, hubby (Richard) and Elisha aged 9 - she'll be coming in first with her broken arm

We've been looking at the possibilities for while now but have just been offered a job in Sydney so its all suddenly become very real (read: scary!)
They are pushing for me to get over there as soon as but I have a 3month notice period so by the time my medical's sorted and I've handed my notice in, it'll be mid-september when we are heading out.
Though as we'll be over in Perth on holiday in end of July/August, there isn't much time left the uk

I think I'm working on the 14th but will double check. If free, we'll head over to the harvester


Cheers
Keith

Our house is a worry. There are three others of the same design nearby and they've all been for sale for ages. We get accomodation paid for for 4 weeks which gives us a little respite but not much.

When are you heading out to Perth? We are there on holiday between 18th July and 8th Aug with a week in Broome thrown in for fun :-)

Will let you know about the 14th June
Sounds like you'll be heading off a lot sooner than us. We thought we'd be there by now but the visa is taking ages (applied Aug 07). The fact that we have been self employed is probably slowing it down as they may want to do a spot check on the business (bring it on!). Look forward to hearing about your hols.

KarenandPaul Pennington is also a nice place to live so i'm sure you'll sell soon - good luck. Like your idea of a seperate pub for kids!

I think they were slightly optimistic over the phone. They have passed it all on to a migration advice consultant who has quoted 6 - 8 weeks from lodging it. Should still all be sorted before my notice period finishes (especially as I haven't handed it in yet)

Good luck with yours, see you on the 14th

That's two hours, we'll all have to make them count for you and then arrange another after the summer so you can stay longer. See you there babe
