Default Mountain Creek, Sunshine coast

Year and a half in and I'm sure I've found paradise

Our little girl, plays on the street, goes to a great school, just seems to have a great time.

Missus, working across the road from the school, in the local TAFE.

Me, after working back on the tools as a Sparks, I got work back in Telecoms, where I have worked for about 25 years. Voice switching/transmission and IP maintenance and installation. And to cap it off, offices in Creek St, two minutes from Central station.

The Aussie are great (never expected anything different), like a bit of banter. weather great - life great.

One tip - don't give up.

Even when you get here, not every thing works out right away, it has taken us a good year to sort out the finance side of things, work, house etc.

Remember - "Rome was not built in a day" as my oldman used to say!!

I have been a bit lax in checking this site, but I will try to keep an eye on it, at least once a week.

Speak soon, over a stubie or two hopefully
