Re: Some people are just low scumbags

And people say you can leave the back door open here as it's so safe to live here just like the UK used to be! By the way we've had a few parcels sent from the UK taken from our doorstep too.

Re: So long fairwell alvetersan goodbye!

Agree with the bad manners thing here. Many a time I have been pushing a trolley down an aisle and if you are slightly in the way there is no excuse me or thanks if you let them pass. Same thing...

Re: For those of you who have always known....

I can't imagine living somewhere for forty years wanting to come home. We leave Oz in 6 days after 5 years here and I thought that was a long time!

Re: Water question

Water in Perth certainly where we are in the Northern suburbs is terrible. We always have used filters here.

Re: What shops/services are you surprised Australia doesn't seem to have much of ??..

I find there is a lack of children's shops here unlike the UK where there a quite a few.

By us we have the choice of K Mart rubbish or Target slightly better rubbish.

Re: Partner wants to move to Australia and I don't. Advice needed.

Think very carefully before you make a move. I was like you loved the UK, happy in everything and close to family so there was no reason to move really but we did and decided to move to Perth.

I like Cirencester too. The Cotswolds were on a list of places to move back to but we ended up choosing Exeter, Devon instead. Both great areas though and hard to make a choice.

Re: Gloucestershire

My Mother in Law lives near Chipping Norton in the Costwolds. Have been to Cheltenham loads of times and it is a lovely place to be.

Your business would do well there.
