    Hooray ! The house has sold again!!
    Move date agreed etc so.....
    OH goes on the 12th June to start his job.
    Me and the girls follow on the 26th June, once house all handed over.
    Scary stuff!! .... I have sooo many 'to do' lists I am running in circles! :rofl:

    I am really excited, but the organising of the last minute things is just making my mind boggle!

    Leaving the renting of a property to my husband when he gets there. (!)

    I want to hit the ground running and get involved in us much to get the kids settled as possible, kids clubs, new circle of friends etc so anyone going over at a similar time, get in touch. Or there already, of course. My kids are 2yrs and 4yrs.

    Hi Cal,
    From what I have seen on line I think that we will be looking around the Sunny Banks, Darra, Cooper Plains area. Then again,short term, as Simon is based right in the centre of Brisbane we may end up there for the first month or so. I am trusting him to get the best value for money and best situation for the kids.

    Hi to the Taylor family aswell, Simon is a Chef, so working shifts. We will be an hour or so away from you I believe. But that isn't any distance at all really.

    Thanks both for getting intouch. It's such a weird feeling, knowing we are going somewhere we have never set foot before and will not know a sole. Even harder for my OH, because he will arrive alone. Work will help him settle in I am sure.
    keep in touch

    Welcome to Oz.
    We are Sharon & Phill and have 2 children, Luke 10 & Georgia 5.
    We arrived here in late March and after a 3 week holiday are now renting a house on the Woodlands Estate in Waterford.
    My wife Sharon is a midwife and is working at the Mater hospital in Brisbane. I am now job searching and just doing a college course in Health & Safety.
    If we can help in anyway just ask away and if you need someone to talk to you'd be more than welcomed.

    Thanks Clippo's and Cal.
    He is struggling to find a furnished place for such a short rent. So plan 2 is to rent the actual long term now and hire furniture until ours arrives........
    Any ideas on companies to try.
    He starts work Monday so is trying to get his body clock adjusted. Not doing too well at that as he is up now chatting to me (16:50 here).
    Cheers again for your help.

    advice please,

    hello mark,

    the other half of the family here, well quite literally as im in brisbane.
    i have managed to get a house on a complex out near manly which i am really releived and pleased about as it gives us a start for the first 6 months, anyway enough about that lisa and the kids are due out next friday(27th), and i have the house/unit from next tuesday, can you advise me of the best way of going about getting furniture, beds, bedding, etc etc, is it to rent or is it to buy cheap and then sell second hand, if i buy is there somewhere i can buy things like beds straight away as i am told some places take up to 12 weeks to deliver, can you recommend anyway to buy most of this stuff, work has told me ikea, is that correct or is there somewhere cheaper, i dont want to go to far out although i do have a sat nav so if you have names and addresses that would be great, i m just trying to make sure the familys arrival is a great one to there new life in aus.
