    Uk based welder - advice needed!

    Hi, I've been here for 7 months on a PR, I've hot 17 years experience as a welder/fabricator and passed the vetasses skilled assessment as a welder 1st class! I can honestly say the work is not living up to expectations, all the mining jobs want someone with previous experience as now they have gone a bit quiet they can be a bit more choosy, I must have sent atleast 20 resumes with excellent references but only 2 called back wanting more tickets like - working at heights and confined spaces! So I'm booked to do them next week, but it's certainly quieter than when I first started looking couple of years ago, hope it doesn't put you off though!!
  2. We are going to head there for 1 ish, is anybody else?
  3. Hi Stanley 661, perhaps meet up on Friday evening in 1 of the parks in tapping?
  4. hi philly, we will come
  5. We also live in tapping, been here 6 months from mid-wales! Got 2 girls aged 8 & 6, and have met done friends from similar meet ups but always keen to make some more!

    ha ha if you are familiar with primark in the UK you will love Kmart, they are pretty similar price and quality(!) and you can keep your long sleeves until your acclimatised if you have small children though i would get some decent clarks shoes and bring them, ive found them to be mega expensive here!!

    Cheapest ways to talk to folk in the UK

    we have only been here for 15 weeks so im sure there are better deals out there but we use Viber a lot, although the sound quality can be perfect one day terrible the next, facetime and skype, our internet is with iinet and they offer a package where you upgrade to an extra $10 per month and get cheap (how much this is I do not know!) calls to uk landlines, we've not done it yet but im thinking of it as speaking to my 93yr old Nan on anything other than the 'phone is not really working out as she cant text, doesnt even own a mobile and thinks Apple is just a fruit

    We would come for a while if it was a bit sooner, that way it's not too much of a rush getting kids ready to go to the parade
