I laugh when people call this paradise it's nice but paradise it aint , they obviously have never been to paradise if they think this is it!!!

Doesn't concern me just interests me that's all. I don't recall saying Australia is not the paradise I think it is Am I not allowed to make any comments on this forum unless I am moving back, thinking of moving back or have moved back????????????????? I don't recall saying anyone is dumb or wrong, just asking out of interest why some people would want all the stress and financial burden of moving to the other side of the world and then hanker after their old life???? That's all

No, no I mean that it seems to distress you that people do not actually like Oz, or do like it but prefer the Uk, (or various other permetations)...hence it is perhaps not the "paradise" it is cracked up to be.
Sometimes you do something in life and hey, it doesn't quite work out...no one would choose that. You never know how things will turn out. I for one found out I was not the strong adventurer I once was 20 years ago! Anyway hope you will be all toasty soon! It is good for advice here isn't it!!

I suspect that Jangle is also a new migrant who is having a bit of a 'wobble' and is trying to reassure him/her self that they have done the right thing.

....or maybe just trolling.

I never think of those wobblers...it was so "black and white" for me! Ah well, she'll be right...

Silly me what I should have posted was has anyone spent the winter in NSW or anywhere colder than Brisbane in the winter and not just generalised. Only moved to this area since December as previously living in Brisbane in a nice rented apartment with ducted heating. Have now purchased a property that unfortuately does not have the same luxuries. So sorry for misleading you all and sorry to p**s on your fireworks. Suspect all you like, if I was a new migrant I would have no qualms about saying I was, why would I?? Is this post a bit like joining the masons?? Jeez you lot are touchy buggers aren't you

Not very convincing I'm afraid.

Central coast temperatures are not much different to Brisbane.

You do not even seem to know how often you will get an electricity bill

Thanks for the temp advice but you may need to check your facts or have you lived all over Australia??? No need to be convincing thanks, I am perfectly happy here and always have been. I have no desire to return to the UK no matter how many posts I read on here or other forums

You made a rod for your own back mate by coming out with stupid little comments like "Did you not do your research" etc. If you dont understand why people are having these feelings then fair enough but to be derogatory to people and say things like "did you not do your research" etc is just uncalled for and thats why people are annoyed with you.

Well....now your 'credibility' is established

no doubt people will treat your posts with all the respect they deserve


Hope you get over your uncertainty soon....maybe it is homesickness.
