There is no rain!!!! Sunshine..................after the weather in Ireland I can tell you it is great.

We did our tax file number on line, and medicare only took 10 mins in the office, all so simple.

Was just going to ask how you set up all the things you need to when you get to Oz. It would be simple if you could do it all on the net or via telephone?
I don't know where to start....guess Medicare is a good place to start then go and see about my job, banks, phones, cars...gonna be a bit frantic! HELP!

we love it here, have only been here 2 months, landed on 15th june after 3 day break in singapore, and think its great. everyone seems genuinely friendly and helpful.
i cant say i know a lot but if i can help with anything, just ask and i will try.

we are struggling with which area to settle in as in my opinion, secret harbour, port kennedy, settlers hills (baldivis) are all lovely.

Great to hear you're settling already Jo

Have you managed to get jobs yet? Any news when the train line will be completed?

Cheers

Hi Nick,

Welcome to the thread. Where abouts in Birmingham are you living at the moment? I used to live in Kings Heath.

If you want to be added to the list give us a few more details and we will put you on.

Hi Guys,

It's been a while but we have moved out of our house so loads to do, only just managed to find time for the internet!! Anyway, only 4days to go!!! OMG!!

There seems to be soooooo much to do and sooooo little time left.....house sale seems to be going through slowly, hopefully will exchange contracts in next week or two and (hopefully) complete the first week of Sept.......fingers crossed...

Is it just me or are we all quite chuffed that the exchange rate has finally moved up? I am so glad that I haven't transferred my money to our aus bank account yet, here's hoping it carries on

Cat and dog leave on Wednesday, can't say I'm looking forward to that, but I'm sure they will be fine....

Anyway, I'll let you know how we get on at the other end.......

Pam x x x
