    Are all Perth people super fit?

    beutiful @JasonM !!! i reckon the sun makes training easier
  2. I know its not much help and below what you do , But a mate of mine went ceiling board fixing - as no one likes plasterboarding ceilings !!! however he got a lot of work and then got him more contacts and got his name around . I know its not easy ..... but good luck buddy

Anyhow , We as a family that tried it for 12 months - returned to UK but now thinking Feb we may return - are so happy you guys are settled and life is going swell ! you certainly dont realise the little things in Oz that are big things here in the UK .... that ocean mmmmmmmmmm lush . Really happy for you guys - Keep living the dream

    hay fever tablets

    One thing i do find mega mega cheap in the UK - are alergy tablets / hay fever etc ! meds are soooooo expensive down under . just putting it out there guys
  9. since returning from Perth ... its taught us that "its just life" and to really explore every oportunity ! We found things werent right in our 12 month stint for us ....... A big error for us was constantly comparing to the UK - Although one thing the UK does have going for it is long hours in the summer staying light until 10.30 .... bliss. But Perth had the ocean ..... that unbelievable ocean, so warm and so so perfect. Not sure what im trying to say , but for us - where thinking of heading back around January , Ok there might be a lul in jobs ...... But im positive the UK boom is going to be short . ............. Life is what matters , memories ! some of the best days in my life where simply spent on mullaloo beach with only enough money for a flat white! Anyhow good look , follow your heart and not your head ...... and enjoy every single moment x

    what are you doing at this moment

    so are you still in the UK now @cocolevi ???? I remeber reading your posts years ago and you seemed desperate to get to Oz
  11. My old next door neighbour in Kallaroo was a brickie ..... But times got hard and wages got lower and lower , to the point wages where equivelent to £70 a day - shocking! Anyhow he just asked around , he knew the trade and got onto ceiling boarding as apparantly not many guys like doing it...... but he was making good money. So yep like Ai said knock on doors or consider other aspects of the building trade. best of luck
