Re: Daughter doesn't want to move!

Hi Jo,

I'm really happy for you - doesn't it just show you how fickle kids can be?!

I would endeavor to keep him on your application at all costs. Not one of us can 'make' our grown up children stay or come with us. But to not even have the choice would be really hard. Explain...

Re: Cracking thunderstorm

Is that what all the Ozzies do at Suncorp when the 'songs' start - go hide in the loo's ?
