Hi Ben..........how's life treating you? I loved your post about seeing the ocean on your way home from work!
We have just decided that we might get flights end next wk and come over to Perth for a couple of weeks (no time to get the BIkini bod...but I'll have to deal with that!!)
Have you got any tips on which area to rent in? We like the look of a house near Hillary's....but only for a week!
I've not slept all night with a these flippin' thoughts racing through my mind!!
Lisa,xx

Hi Lisa

If you want to rent in a nice area close to the ocean, anywhere west of Marmion Avenue would be good, so near Hillarys would be spot on. Also Marmion, Waterman, North Beach, Trigg, etc. When you get down to Scarborough it's rather more tourist/backpacker. Hillarys is a a nice area, and you could meet up with a bunch of the expat ladies who do lunch on a Thursday there. I guess you'd be doing a short-term holiday let - lots of places up and down the coast should suit. As a quick tip; don't get one that's right on top of the West Coast highway. A few houses away is much better; it can be a noisy road.

Feel free to PM me (or Margy, my OH, whose username is, er, margy) if you like.

Cheers
Ben

That's lovely of you Ben...I certainly will do..........and thanks for the tips! We are 38 (Paul and I) and we have 2 teenagers, Maddy (15) and Lloyd (18...and who doesn't want to come 'cause he's got an assignment to hand in at Uni.....WHAT!!)
Paul will be frantically trying to secure job interviews now...although there does seem to be more 'production manager' jobs in Brissy on the internet job sites at the mo!!
We will try to meet up with some ex-pats as we know NO-ONE at all in Perth and could do with some advice!
I'll let you know when we book the flights!
Thanks again, Lisa,x

The Mystery of my missing white elephant from the garden is resolved. He set off to Australia to hunt out DIAC & give them some gentle persuasion to look at our visa application.

He must have chained himeslef to the railings & made a nuisense of himeself as this morning our agent rang to give us the wonderful news.................

WE HAVE A VISA!!!!!!!!!! Woooo HOOOOOOO

Now can't stop shaking / crying & can't concentrate. Off to the POst office now to send the passports off. Hope I can drive ok..........

Good luck to all those still waiting. Your turn will come.

For those interested in analysing everything to within an inch of its progress, much like myself. We applied 24 April (paper), ack 29 April, meds 2 Sep, PCs 14 Sep No CO straight to visa grant 21 Nov.

Now I wonder who you could possibly be referring to?!

I suppose it would be wrong of me to mention the fact that you haven't yet updated your profile on BEupdate!
