******* Pool & Spa - Name and shame

I'm so completely fed up of this company, terrible customer service, rude staff, never turn up when they promise they will. I just wanted to name and shame them so that anyone in this area tempted...

Re: So I told my 6 year old.......what is your experience with yours?

that's reassuring because my 3 yr old has found the move the most difficult of us all, which I was completely surprised by. She's still asking when we can go home and we've been here almost 11 weeks...

Re: 457 granted - visa label question

Thanks very much for the info, that certainly makes things a lot easier. Mind you, I'd raced ahead and started planning a little shopping trip in the capital for before we go.

Re: Childrens orthoptists/ opticians in Oz?

My 3 year old has just started to wear glasses - and the total cost to us in the UK..... £10!! Mmm, I can see her costing us a small fortune when we move to Oz, esp cos we're not on a perm visa.

Re: Where to live in Melbourne

Thank you.

Re: Where to live in Melbourne

Out of interest, I just wondered if anyone could advise if the Eastlink has reduced commute times into the city (more specifically Preston) from areas such as Frankston South, Langwarrin etc?
