    what are you doing at this moment

    Just read a book called past caring by Robert Goddard. God it was awful. So predictable. Unlikable narrator who takes months to work things out when they are so obvious. Ridiculous plot. Don't waste your time.

    Mystery road

    I think it's on iPlayer, I'll check it out thanks.
  4. Pick one, stick with it. It's not good practice to do anything that could confuse immigration officials, or lead them to suspect there is anything suspicious in your application.
  5. Do many foreign buyers take out mortgage? I thought it was more to do with hiding money away in bolt holes?

    Does anyone know if you can fit three suitcases plus cabin luggage and five passengers in a maxi taxi from the rank? I could order a shuttle, but they are more expensive.
  8. Or will the heat melt the chocolate? Saw one in mindarie, but are there any others, preferably in the swan valley?

    Maybe you could try the pomsinoz site. Brisbane has been bouyed by the commonwealth games. Melbourne, Sydney are better as they are not resources bound.

    Perth lawyers

    I know of a James Somers who is a lawyer in Perth. Haven't seen him in years, and hard to Google because of the bionic woman. Maybe you could try yellow pages. I expect he'll charge, he is a lawyer after all. Also went to uni with nick, http://www.corrs.com.au/people/nicholas-ellery/ , again expect he may charge.

    It is going to be crazy hectic

    Don't give the house away. Off-peak you can get cheap flights back to oz to deal with legalities.

    There does seem to be a reduction in new builds at the moment in Perth. How attached to Perth are you? You may have more luck in the Eastern states.

    Ah yes. An unnecessary distraction, and possibly even the straw that broke the camel's back.

    I really think it depends on your circumstances. If you are prepared for the worst case and happy to treat it as a long holiday if you can't get work then it can be great. But if you have a family and you're betting the farm on it working out, you might want to wait awhile. Also depends on how secure you are in the UK. I would not give up security for a dream right now. But in two years time, who knows. Plus visas take time, and they are valid for a while.
