Default At last..Brisbane on the 27th

After 2 years planning and so many set backs , we are finially off to Brisbane on the 27th.

Things I won't forget...........

1.The lawyers, ours great ,,, theirs should be hung.
2.The Banks ,,,,,,,,should all be shot for robbing every penny they can.
3.Car dealers,,,,,,,,,,have they no conscience??How come the car you have to sell is always the worst and theirs is always the best??
4.House buyers,,,,,,,,,if you are'nt going to bother turning up after us cleaning the house like 2 crazy people , screaming at the kids not to dare eat or sit or move ,,then why not ring to cancel .
5. Estate agents,,,,,,,,,,,how come they never know when to shut up?I know when I'm being lied to, I do !!


Things I would'ent trade for anything..........

1.The look on my childrens faces at their leaving party with all their friends .I could feel the tears in my eyes.At aged 2, 7 and 8 they have already made such great friends.
2.My in-laws,for all the help and support and for always being there!
3. Our friends for the great send off we got .
4. To everyone of you on this forum who have helped with your advice and threads , you have all been a mountain of knowledge , we would never have able to get through all this without you all .
Many many thanks.

So its off to either the Gold Coast or Samford ,I will keep you posted as to the complete process,good and bad.


Frances and Adrian.
