Hi Sandra, Yes I will bring my 9 year old too. What is your 17 year old doing? Working or School?

Best of luck with your application.

Technically I am returning home, but my fiancee's visa was granted so we will land back in Perth mid January.

The only thing we are struggling with is finding somewhere to live, but im sure it will come together.

Hi Lorraine

Sci tech sounds good. Let me know what date suits you both. Not much on at my end (except moving on 2nd Jan, again!!!)

See you
Karen

Moving into our rental in Iluka. We're still in holiday accomodation at the moment up in Butler. We get the keys tomorrow but waiting for our furniture so staying here until after Christmas.

Dont actually have much to move!! Still the 2nd will be a bit hectic, cleaning etc.

When do you fancy getting together? Not sure where Sci-tech is but if its difficult for Sandra to get to, perhaps we could meet somewhere nearer her.

If i may- i believe that sci tech is pretty close to the centre of perth (City West, West perth.. to be precise)

Hi could you please update our details janice and john landed 11th December - now settled in Settlers Hill Baldivis. Managed to get the rental property we wanted straight away - fingers crossed we get the keys for Christmas. Having a ball so far - anyone fancy meeting up would be great - it would be nice to make some friends.

Living the dream at last

janice and john

Hi Karen,

How hard was it to secure a rental property?

Some people have had problems getting a rental so quickly!

Thanks,

Neil.

Hi Neil

We found our rental really quickly, it was a private rental advertised in the paper as the current tenants were breaking their lease. There seem a fair few rentals around but some are really grotty. It depends which area you're looking at. There are hardly any in some of the nicer areas or they are really expensive.

Do you have any idea where you fancy living?

Karen

Hi Karen,

We have friends who are moving from Heathridge to Connolly in the new year so we want to be near them if we can.

This is probably going to be a bit tough as there are not too many rentals in this area, ideally we want to be close so all our kids can go to the same school (We both have a 5 and an 8 year old boys).

Regards,

Neil.

Good place for teenagers and from what i am aware young kids too... normally only for just a once off visit - "Adventure World"(name should speak for itself)... Another popular place is Rottnest island, generally people stay for a few nights, boat trip away.

Just search both on google and you'll get an idea as to what they're all about.

Thought i'd throw that in as i was reading that some of you have teenagers settling in.

Thanks for that. Went to Rottnest last year, they loved it. Going to try and get there again in the school hols. Havent tried Adventure World yet but its on the list!! Think they'd probably enjoy anywhere if they have someone their age around.

Any more suggestions, let us know
Karen

Karen,

We have just had our medicals so it will probably be probably March by the time we (Hopefully) get our visa.

It is important for us to rent in an area where we can afford to buy eventually so that the kids dont have to move school after settling in.

regards,

Neil
