    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.
  6. 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.
  7. Do many foreign buyers take out mortgage? I thought it was more to do with hiding money away in bolt holes?

    Taxi from the airport

    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.
  9. 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.

    Hows Perth doin ?

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

    Hows Perth doin ?

    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.

    Hows Perth doin ?

    Isn't there an inverse relationship between the amount of work for social workers and the state of the economy?

    Should we buy and bring a tumble dryer?

    Many people don't use them, and they do sell them if you need one. Places often have a clothes line at the side of the house under cover. I'd wait and see what you need. You may even rent/buy a house with one fitted. If you already owned it I would bring it. But I wouldn't buy one especially. When it rains it rains hard, but you can get nice sunny winter days.

    I applied for Australian passports in the UK for my boys. Got them back in seven working days too. Pretty amazing.

    Exchange rate prediction

    At the moment, god only knows the world has gone mad. Medium term, the EU debate will push the pound down. Longer term I'd fancy the pound over the dollar. But there is no sure thing. I believe you can set things up so it will transfer if/when the rate hits your target. Could be an option in this uncertain world.

    Urgent Car Accident in Car Park

    As stated, rego covers personal injury claims, and is not related to damage claims to the car, or any other car. Important point as many people seem to misunderstand this.
