Thanks Teryna,

So far so good. Have done all that we have needed to so far. Bank accounts TFN number house etc.

Will start the kids at school next week. went to view it, and meet the head teacher on wednesday. It's great, small but well equiped and class sizes are small. My BIL's kids have attended this school so we have a bit of history.

We also get our house today, which will be nice. Need to start shopping for stuff. My wife is so looking forward to that! It'll be 4-5 weeks before our stuff gets here so we will be living very basically until then. We have managed to beg borrow and steal most things we will need.

So really just the jobs, cars, medicare, driving licence's to sort out now!!!!


B/Rgds,
Kenny & Wendy

Hey Kenny
Word of advice get the golden ticket which is an ozzie driving license it opens all sorts of gateways.
We sorted things quite quickly too been here 3 months hoping to start building our own home next month.
im hoping that will make us feel more settled Hubby started a part time job this week sons gone labouring for the first time today.
Jobs for the family have been pretty hard to find something we just was not prepared for

Hi Teryna,


Thanks for the advice. We will get it sorted next week. We are going to start looking for cars this weekend, and will get some money sent next week to start spending.


Received the keys for our house today. Only a rental, but very pleased with it. Lcation couldn't be better.


Just sent of a few job applications so will wait to see how they pan out.


We appear to be ticking along nicely at the moment.


Your building your own home! Terrific. One day that will be our dream.


Cant believe how laid back everything and everyone is. Will take a while to slip into that mind set.


Take care,
Kenny

Hi Teryna,


Yeh I noticed that the bank charges are totally different than the UK. We get charged $5 a month on our current account a month just for having it??


We also asked for a cheque book but apparently there could be charges involved in using it, although not explained to us at the time.


I need to move down a gear now. Will adopt the "No worries Mate" attitude as my mantra.


To be 25c here today, so will look for a car, and then have a few beers outside.

Cheers,
Kenny

Hi there
Having just been on our reccie trip, my OH who is staying there (got a job) got a driving licence because this gives points for when you want to get a rental. I think its only 10 points, but when your new to the country it all adds up.

It only took about half an hour and is done straight away at your nearest Road and Traffic Authority (RTA) mine will last three years and cost $106.00. Its a lovely NSW driver licence with a lovely flower in the middle, OH got one for five years, cost a bit more. Take passport, current driving licence and proof of a residential address.

Ah, we don't have any address, so guess we can't do that. But soon as poss we will.


Hope we don't need an address for everything or we're screwed, although i've used S-j's address for the customs shipping form...hopefully they won't turn up with a container on her doorstep!!

It must be hard for you having to go back without him...it'd kill me,
