Hi thanks for the good press! Just to let everyone know there will be another Coffee morning this Thursday (17/11) 12.30pm, Hilarys!

I would also like to add that Yvonne is an inspiration to us all. She has had just about every problem conceivable since arriving in Perth (paying two mortgages due to house sales falling through in UK, toddler splitting head open twice!!, etc etc.) but she remains very positive and is always jolly and happy, and this is so good for new people that are arriving! If anyone had cause to bolt back to the UK it is Yvonne and her family but they are sticking it out, they do not go on forums spreading doom and gloom for all those about to embark on their move from the UK like so many others who do not have everything drop in their laps, they are practical and work through the problems as they occur. I really do hope this house sale goes through very very soon! Good on ya Yvonne, keep ya chin up it will all come right soon and we are there for you to offload the stress every Thursday with a good long chat-promise!

Awww thanks for saying nice things about me (will pay you later )
It's true the last 11 months have been very hard. (For those that don't know... our house sale fell through just a few weeks before we came last Jan but with hubbie's resignation handed in, flights, shippers, accom etc all booked we decided to come anyway leaving empty house back on the market. Another buyer came along a few months and we were told she was cash buyer /no chain and 5 months later we were given a completion date (At this time we were kicked out of our rental as it had been sold so we bought a house here 5 days before we thought we were completing) The day before completion we found out we were actually in a chain of 5 with the bottom falling out and so we were back on the market again...but now with the UK mortgage and an Aus mortgage. Another few months went past and we got another buyer.....all this has been going on since January. However....
we exchanged on Tues and will complete tomorrow )
The whole time we have lived here we have been in limbo with this huge dark cloud hanging over us. In retrospect we should have cancelled everything and stayed until the house sold.
Now we can look forward to our new lives here in beautiful Perth. Thanks guys for all your support over the last few months. Looks like it's all coming together for us all
Don't know what I'm going to moan about from now on though,.....mind you, my folks are just about to descend on us for 8 weeks so I'm sure I won't be short of material
Cheers
Yvonne
