    weve heard alot of good regarding common wealth - its just that you need to transfer 3 months before leaving .... So my idea of bunging spare cash in wont work . But yep cheers for reply

  14. Hi guys, So as some of you may know we where in WA .... but back in blighty for now. But im just wondering as we have job over there sorted - we know areas where we would like to live - Can or could we secure a rental from over here ? or do i have to actually be in Oz to do this ? I feel it would be far easier ..... Anyhow any agents can advise that would be great thanks in advance
  15. hey your very kind @FOL ..... ive been looking at real estate website and cannot believe what we can get now for the money we where paying back then !

    what to do ?

    Hey guys , So really struggling on what and when to do it !!! We where thinking of heading back to WA around feb 2019 , however at the moment we are trying to keep it all together as father in law has a stage 4 brain tumour and only weeks to live , sadly ! So, feb maybe difficult . However we need advice regarding our son , He was the main reason we had to return to the UK as he was so unhappy . Sadly we are now the ones that are unhappy here in the UK , but hes settled back in and xbox has once again taken up most of his time. He is at high school and will be sitting gcse's 2020 . So we are now thinking - when do we make the move ? He does not want to go back - we even did say how about he studies his A levels etc in Oz ? Its so hard as my wife has a job waiting back in joondalup , we know the areas we like .......... I just feel we shouldnt have given in and made him stay in the first place . Not sure what im asking ? i just wonder if anyone has been in the same situation as us ? We love the UK and OZ ..... but the pull of the ocean and sun is really really hitting hard . Me ,the wife and little girl would be over next year asap ..... but we just cannot bare our 14 yr old son to be so lonely and unhappy again. Just putting it out there guys ..... i know the forum dosent seem to get the responses it used to , but any advice would be great !

    what to do ?

    HEY @Lauren & Luke , So, where were at ...... Well we bought an old cottage and are currently renovating, We bought cheap so our aim is to really boost our collateral with this cottage. Once completed later this year ..... we can then plan our next move! We will rent the cottage whilst in Oz and explore housing options once arrive ...... again . We have decided to let our Son take his GCSE's here in UK ( well this is the mindset for now ) ..... Then we are planning to move back to WA and he can look at A levels etc other there .... and our daughter will still be in primary school. My wife is still good friends with the staff she worked with ..... And her job is still there if she wants it ( which is great ). As for me im thinking of training for another career other than bricklaying , but not sure. But yep this is where we are at the moment. For us our biggest problem is that we really do like both countries , they both have positives and negatives ....... But where just looking at we only get one life - so hey lets enjoy ;o)
  24. sat here after our mini feb heat wave ( weird right ) ..... And was just thinking - i really miss the lemon and lime bitters, If you not drinking alcohol , then this was a great drink. you can get bundaberg ginger beer here but not lemon lime bitters...... ...Also Aioli sauce was something that rocked my boat , very nice. anyhow , just putting it out there . ( oh and heat wave finished now)
