Re: Perth Ikea !

The parking is just as bad though - well it has been on the days I've been. Don't know if the Adelaideans (?) have quite got Ikea yet - think it was just full of English and Swedes.

Re: 14 Year old

Hi
When I enrolled my then 13 year old at school here in Australia they never asked for previous school reports. After a few months in Year 9 she was moved up to Year 10 without any hassles.

Re: Making a claim on marine insurance

Thanks for replies - I've sent a letter back to the insurance company but not holding out much hope - I've got nothing to lose.

The insurance company is AXA.

Re: Mumps vaccine

Who are you to tell me to "do it properly or not at all". As far as I'm concerned I'm doing it properly - she's my child and I'll chose.

Lemmings jump off cliffs "properly" every year.

Re: moving back to where you originally lived or not?

I agree - I cried everyday for months and wanted to go home desperately. Been here a year now and so glad I didn't go now. I absolutely hated it when I got here now I really like it.

Re: OMG have you seen airfares to the UK now

My 14 year old daughter wants to go to visit her dad, and the rest of her family. The original plan was for us all to go but due to the cost of flights she is going to have to go alone.
