    New Year, New country, New life

    No experience....But if Perth is where you want to come and live there go for it....We have been here since July and have never looked back.... The job market is hard but there are jobs out there..

    Northern Suburbs Making Friends

    Hey guys... Also keen to meet new people..... we have been here since end July.... It took my husband 2 months to find a job and his an Accountant.....You just have to keep applying and going through the painful process of interviews and rejections until you hit lucky... I was lucky to pick mine up in a month...Both our jobs are not our dream jobs...And we both found you have to downgrade your skills to gain the Aussie experience to climb back up the ladder again ( if that makes sense)....It's worth it for the Aussie lifestyle the kids and us are having so much fun...x

    Landed !

    The goodbye parties are definitely getting harder..... We are kinda in limbo at the moment... Can't wait for our life to start in Australia... But at the same time realise how much we are going to miss friends and family! Need to think about packing suitcases soon!

    Whats been the best flight deal?

    Well myself and Kids are flying with Malaysia Airlines!! and hubby Singapore... They were both the cheapest carriers on the days we wanted to fly and the shortest stopover...I know alot of people are nervous with flying with Malaysia but they are part of the one alliance group and code share with BA.. I will let you know my experience once we land!!

    renting a house in perth

    We are waiting until we get there to seek rental accommodation.... We have a fully furnished house for 8 weeks...and will go from there...think it would be hard to find permanent long term rental from the UK!!

    Perth Nightmare!!!

    I feel for you...but hang in there its early days...I know getting a job is a big part of the emigrating process and yes it's sure going to stress me out but think about the reasons why you have moved to Perth and what it has to offer you x Hope you get sorted soon.

    Have you ever thought about moving to another city in Australia? I know this is something we would definitely consider if it doesn't work outing Perth....
