Had Kennedys out today. We are with PDQ in Ormskirk at the moment but haven't had any interest with them
Kennedys have said its not overpriced its just the market
We're gonna drop it anyway & hopefully we'll get something soon. We've got to give PDQ 2 weeks notice so once that is up Kennedys can hopefully get some viewers thru the door
Goodluck for Friday

Reeds Rains said it's quiet but not dead, they think our current agents aren't advertising it properly It's going up with them on the 5th May........let's see if they can do any better.

Bit off the subject but just noticed where you are from, we are from Workington too! We are now living in Mandurah (40 mins south of city centre) and been here 9 months. Really enjoying it. With husband and 2 year old daughter.

Where abouts in Workington you live?

Hi all,

Can we join you? I'm Alex, 28, a part time palliative care nurse, and hubby David is also 28 and a full time intensive care nurse. We have a 15 month old little boy called Theo and are in the beginning stages of planning our journey to Perth. We are hoping to come in January 2009, but have no idea where exactly in Perth at the moment! Hoping to get some idea from you guys! Our initial plan is to come for a year, rent our house out in the UK and see what happens - we're bit too scared to take the plunge completely!

Have just applied to the nursing board of western australia for both our nursing registrations and are in contact with a nursing agency who will hopefully help find hubby a job. Haven't started applying for visa yet as not sure what our best option is - we're a bit worried having read some other posts about nurses being stuck in jobs they hate because their employer sponsored their visa. Would be interested to hear any advice/thoughts/experiences of other nurses on here about this?

Alex

Hi Alex,

Unfortunately i'm not a nurse so i can't help you, but i was just thinking that it may be a good idea if you started a thread called something like 'experiences of sponsored nurses'. You may get the right kind of people replying.

Hi!
Another newbie I'm afraid! Love this forum!
We are a teacher and a plumber hoping to move to perth at some point this year! visa submitted in Feb and just had meds done.

We've been researching perth and originally thought Mandurah and now thinking Secret Harbour (OH saw it on one of these Down Under progs).

How do you decide Daughter is nearly 4 and should be starting school here in sept but out there she wouldn't start pre-school til next feb.
Anybody recommend any schools?

Hi. Thanks for all your welcomes!
As for where we're planning to stay we're really not sure whereabouts at the moment. We're trying to research the hospitals to find out which are the best ones to work at with us both being nurses, so it may be a case of deciding where to live based on that. Also we need to consider the cost of renting/living in different areas of Perth, as well as where there are nice, family friendly areas - any advice gratefully received
