    Thoughts on SAD/depression

    Tell me about it!! Especially when you suffer from SAD! So over the snow now.... It's lovely when you don't have to get anywhere!! Cornwall had it bad again I think.... Where are you going in Cornwall? I'm from Porthtowan originally [emoji106] Sent from my SM-G950U1 using Tapatalk

    Thoughts on SAD/depression

    Thanks for the advice. [emoji106] We have visited in July/ August two different times and stayed for a a month at at time. I loved the fact it's bright and sunny some days, despite being winter and we could get out and do more outdoors. We travelled up to Coral Bay and downtown Albany to give us some experience of what WA has to offer. It was lovely and warm up in Coral Bay and even in Albany, we went yo the beach. It did feel chilly at night and we plugged in various heaters wherever we were staying! I suppose it's all relative and the houses are supposed to keep cool in the hot summer. I do feel it would help my partner ashe does feel so low during the winter in the UK which can go from October all the way through till March... They say we may expect snow next week! It's all about predictability for me. I would just love to plan activities outside and not be let down by the unreliability of the weather in the UK! Sent from my SM-G950U1 using Tapatalk

    Thoughts on SAD/depression

    Thanks. We are both taking Vitamin D as a spray. It's really my husband that suffers in the winter time more so all these replies are really positive. We started looking into Australia due to his SAD. He does use a light box and likes doing sports outside so winter in the UK is when he finds it almost impossible to get motivated to do any exercise which would help. The early sunsets in the Australian summer is a bit of a worry as it's so lovely it being light late in the summer in the UK but at least it would be warm! Sent from my SM-G950U1 using Tapatalk

    Hi I would be grateful if anyone had any experience of themselves or their family members suffering with SAD and/or depression and their symptoms changing or staying the same after a relocation to warmer and sunnier climates in WA. Also of there are much support for these conditions in Perth. Thanks in advance. Sent from my SM-G950U1 using Tapatalk

    Leaving Oz for a holiday

    Ok great thanks for the advice! [emoji106] Sent from my SM-G950U1 using Tapatalk
  7. We are planning on coming to live in Perth in summer 2018 and have a 190 visa that has been activated and runs out December 2018. Can anyone tell me the rules on leaving for a holiday once we move permanently? Do we need a return residents visa? Are these tricky to get? We wouldn't want to come across to the UK for a while just to give us a chance to settle but I just wanted to know the rules. Sent from my SM-G950U1 using Tapatalk

    Registering to teach in WA

    Hi you can register with the TRBWA on a non practising registration until you move and work in Australia then you transfer over to a practising one after a few weeks of working over there I believe. Without having a registration it will be difficult to get a job. Hope that helps? Sent from my SM-N910F using Tapatalk

    Which areas?

    Thanks, we're starting to realise that! Thanks for your previous advice Laz!The open house was beautiful and very interesting looking at the spec and different design. it was so helpful to meet one of the team there and make a contact. We will keep a close eye on the market over the next 18 months to assess whether the time is right to continue the business over here. At the moment just trying to see all the different locations and design features of aussie properties! Sent from my GT-I9505 using Tapatalk

    Which activities in Winter?

    Hi just wondering what kind of social stuff people get up to in the winter in Perth? Do people go to bars/pubs/ cinema/ eat out? Are there clubs in the city centre of Perth? I remember from the last time we visited at this time of year things seem very quiet in the evenings but that maybe just the places we've stayed!! Everything seems to shut fairly early too especially on Sundays. We went to Hillary 's boat harbour tonight and that was busy with an ice rink set up but I guess that because it's still the school hols until tomorrow! Is that the kind of place that people visit for the evening regularly or do people go to bars with mates? Don't get me wrong ...I don't hang out at the pub all the time in the UK but just wondering on the differences and similarities. ..? Sent from my GT-I9505 using Tapatalk

    Which areas?

    Thanks for the reply, we had a great chat with someone from a major development and building company in WA so made some contacts already at an open house today and yes of course the market has changed into a downturn but there are still opportunities, it just depends on location and spec which has to be just right. There will always be people who want a high end property built from scratch and that build managed by someone else. My husband already has a property development business, we're not looking to build for ourselves. Sent from my GT-I9505 using Tapatalk

    Which areas?

    Thanks, yes we realise that the market is not great at all at the moment but we aren't planning on moving for another 18 months or so. Just wanted to make some contacts if possible and get an idea of designs etc. Thanks for the info....we will get looking at some show homes today now the rain has stopped Sent from my GT-I9505 using Tapatalk

    Which areas?

    Hi I am wondering if anyone can tell me some of the areas/locations that command the highest prices for real estate? My husband is a property developer in the UK with his own business that build and develop high spec properties, we are over in Perth at the moment and would like to look around some areas for him to see the style and spec over here. He expects that front line, sea view properties command higher prices but as you can self build here more easily as there's so much space it's tricky to understand which suburbs have the top end properties...except near the CBD. He already has some meetings set up but would ideally like to meet with any agents too...are there any estate agents that ate specifically for the high end spec properties? ? Any ideas or advice would be fantastic! Thanks! Sent from my GT-I9505 using Tapatalk
