Hi All -

Hope you are all well

A long awaited update to the spreadsheet has now been posted. Having a right carry on with PC World over my laptop :curse: so restricted to updating it in work been really busy in work with end of year reports hence the delay. If I've missed anything pm me. For some reason Frorge it wouldn't let me delete the baby so will try again - maybe it's a sign!!!!!

Thanks, Janet XxX

Hi All,

Still here. even after our visa grant!!!

Me and the OH have finally agreed on what place to go to when we get there, and that happened to be Cairns. God knows why! I guess it just sounds like an adventure.

She didn't want Sydney as our life style would be too much like our current London life style. Big Mortgage etc'. Melbourne and Perth was both a MMmmmmmmmmmm. Anyway Cairns was the first place we both kind of said "YES lets try it".


Is there any other Marchies going or have we lost the plot here!

Hi sub main man

Have you been to cairns before? Just one thing to bear that when we went (admittedly in december) it was soooo hot!!
Don't know if i could live with that type of humidity but i suppose you get used to it? Plenty do go there - just don't think we could cope...personal thing i suppose?
As an example we were waiting for a boat out to the reef at 7am and people were literally flaking all over the floor - sweating like pigs - at 7am!!!

Can't fault it for location though eh? great barrier reef etc on doorstep

hmmm swimming with the turtles on green island - would love to be there now, the most beautiful, clear water i've ever seen...

Good luck whatever you decide!

A very long time ago, I can't remeber much about the place.

I just figgured it would be nice to see if a few other Marchies are going there.

We are trying to choose at the moment Cairns or Brisbane currently 60-40 in favour of Brisbane only because we are unsure of job opportunites for industrial ventilation fitters etc in cairns.

Mum and dad have visited all of Australia on a number of occassions, for them cairns is the best. They have lived in Bahrain for may years and say the humidity doesnt bother you for long and you soon get used to it, I think its worth a chance you can always move.

We have looked at the possiblity of starting in Cairns and working our way down to Brisbane and seeing which suits us best, we have decided to take a small amount out of housing fund to allow us to do that.

Good luck

Hi there,
We are seriously considering going out for a reccie to look at houses, school [son will be due to start equivelant 6th form] and work prospects.Otherwise if we don't we're gambling on getting the area right first time - and then probably will have a 6mth rent to pay. Also we have pets, rental accomodation is scarce and harder to find with them. Finding the whole £ thing stressful - our equity from the house sale seems to be disapearing in front of our eyes [medicals for four last week alone were £950] and wondering what everyone else is planning on doing re: deposit for a house, money for emergencies, etcetc.Any ideas welcome

Hi

We have 3 boys one 18, 13 and 12, 18 year is not coming wants to stay here in Newcastle.

I too dont know what we are going to do, we have a fair bit of equity, but I can see it disappearing rapidly. Depending on cost of houses rent etc most of that will be gone. A lot of it will depend on what kind of job OH can get and how much lenders will give us.

Its all too much my head is spinning. The thought of going into the unknown is slighty worrying but kind of exciting.

Congratulations on turning red

Kaye

Hi, to those who know us!

We've not been on for a while as we've been spending some quality time with friends and family- making the most of this last year in the UK.

We're still waiting on a passprt number from the UK passport office so we wont be going green yet.

We've had a shock today - - we put our house on the market on tuesday but didnt put the sign up as we're in no hurry (we dont wont to leave until jan 08). on thursday we had a viewing and today they returned for a second viewing and put a brill offer in!! We don't know what to do as we weren't expecting it. We said we'd think about it over the weekend but

We do have another house which we rent out that we may have to move into but didn't really want to.

Our daughter also has to start a new secondary school for 1 term, which is crap for her but we dont have much choice at least she's with her friends.

We've sold 1 car and are managing with 1 between us. We have alot of messing about still to do - crap, but hey ho it will be worth it when we're sitting by our pool sipping wine

Bring it on!!!!!
