    Bricklayer arriving soon

    Hey up fella we've just agreed sale of house and am now having major doubts about the move . Is it really that hard to find work as a brickie? I'm Simalar been doing it 19 year and have kinda made it to the top of the food chain with the gang I'm in at the firm I'm with. Starting to think I'm nuts for moving ! Last thing I want is to be scratching around for work again ????
  6. Does anyone know what good brickies are earning over there please ?? Cheers
  7. No the ten year old is a boy and the other a girl. He's good as gold and seems to be taking it in his stride. But is of course worried about friends.
  8. Hi thanks for the reply people, nice to know people out there in same boat. Got a contact over there who is being really helpful and recommended I came on here . We're looking at the rockingham area at the minute but are clueless on schools. Kids are 10 and 4 . But like I say our main worry is being able to live on the one wage. I mean how does it work when kids are on school hols and you both work??? Cheers guys
  9. Hi first time on here and hoping we can get some advice ... Well we have our visas and have just agreed sale of our house . The problem is we're having doubts about the move . Our story is that we're a family of 4 and basically only have enough money to get ourselves over there and into rental. My salary could be in the region of 75k to 85k and would probably be the only income to start with. So basically I'm wondering if this is enough to not just survive on but to have a little left over for sports clubs etc . Any advice would be brill as the stress were having is making me grey !!! Oh I'm a bricklayer too if this helps
