well, once I get past the oldies-but-goodies and onto the more recent mates - theres the Crestas formerly of Microbrew Mansions, now of "Chateaux Children", Michelle (mlbonner), Michaela (mcmercer), the Annqldau family, the dmf family (Mrs dmf keeps me sane at work!!), and all you mad creatures who keep me up all night, like Soapy and Bix!
Oh, and The Bloke of course....without whom I would still be in sunny Sussex!

I would like to thank...

Pollyana - for being the first person to make me smile when we landed in oz to live....especially as I felt and looked like a badgers ar*e after the lovely long flight

Hevs - For always making me laugh & joining me in a great chat room wind up

S J Oldfield (Sandra) - for always being such a good mate & lending me her ear to bash on more than one occasion

Larissa - For being a good mate & gym buddy

Bix & Da Boss - For never failing to make me laugh

And for varying other reasons....too many to mention but their names deserve one - TWT, Hels, McMercer (Michaela), phoenixinoz, soapy, oh & Hilary... for those bloody eggs!

There's prob loads more of you who have made me laugh or given me good advice & I apologise if I haven't mentioned you, but I'm grateful to you all....sob!

I like the way this thread is going. Its good to see who helped who. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but it shows new members there’s plenty of help out there. All you need to do is ask

Ok if you can't beat 'em

Pollyana cos she's a star!

MrsDagboy because she nearly talked me into living Bayside and very kindly allowed me to stay in the basement for a few days.

Dagboy because he makes me laugh and he is a saint for putting up with MrsD

Wholeworldwindow and family for giving me a bed for the night.

Bix, Soapy plus many many others for making me laugh more than my pelvic floors can cope with

ABC, PR and Hevs for giving me sanctuary away from a very bizarre world

Da Boss simply because she must be a complete saint

If I have missed anyone out it's either because I can't name everyone or because maybe I don't have anything to thank you for

And last but not least

















Arkon - because he has made me realise how much I love and enjoy my life and because my glass will always be at least half full.

Bloody hell mate!
This is a bit of a surprise!
When I first started posting on the Oz immigration forum in 1998, (which became part of BE), I just used my real name, "John Lamont"....

Who were you then?
And why was I stupid enough to help you get to Oz??

Anyway.....
Good thread mate!

Made me dig around in the past a bit.

Here's the first post, (and possibly my most boring ever) that is registered on BE under my original name.
My 4 years of posting before that are sadly, (and probably just as well) lost!

http://britishexpats.com/forum/showthread.php?t=27708

No replies, cos I probably sent everybody to sleep!!

On a lighter note, Here's my post the day that I got my PR visa.

http://britishexpats.com/forum/showthread.php?t=126614

As I said Soapy, good thread.
You've really got me thinking, & I'll post my, "thank yous" as soon as I can remember them all...!!
If you don't want to post your old username, send me a PM, cos I won't sleep tonight unless I find out!!! (sad git that I am)...

What we have seen of the area looks great, so any info would be great.
I would love to hear from anyone with other suggestions for areas to consider. I am lugging with me three teenagers so they must be taken into consideration.

Thanx
Soapy

Errrrrr, are you sure thats you soapy, cos I can understand what you said

Very true, he should have won that thread about most long suffering spouse!

I'd like to thank him for being so wonderful & for leaving everything behind & moving half way around the world just to be with me .
