Has sold it all and moved closer to Brisbane and now happier. We agreed that for many british (not all) used to compact heavily populated cities the better option would be a smaller house in a busier inner area.

3) Learnt that behind some modest looking mirrored doors in Duncan Street in West End there is a fantastic greek/asian supermarket/deli.

4) Learnt that this half complete residential development now has the most unfortunate name in Brisbane: http://www.watersedgewestend.com.au/main.html (sound, open in IE)

I live in Cleveland and it's wonderful.

That the Greek news channel is still far more informative than the Aussie despite the fact I don't speak a word of 'bubble'

That Nicole Kidman seems to be modeling her new look on Kryten from Red Dwarf

That's really good, I'm happy for you. Just to emphasise it I am not saying everybody should avoid the quiet outer suburbs just that for "some" people they would be too quiet and/or lonely and the big house/lap pool does not compensate those people. For others they love it. It seems like 90% of people on here are heading to those type of estates I just wonder whether the percentage should be lower as they can make some british immigrants miserable?
