    Just wanted to say hello.
    I am on the sight for the usual, to put my mind at rest. Worrying about education, where to live, child care, cost of living....... the list goes on.

    Hope to chat soon.

  5. Hello Hugster & co. And Mrs C.
    I have just registered here after using Poms In Oz.
    I too am in Kent. Tonbridge to be precise.
    Where exactly is everyone going to in Queensland? Or where are you already?
    I know a little about the Gold Coast as that is where my brother and family are. So if anyone has any questions about this area I'd be happy to try and reply.
    Anyway, good luck.
    Kate

    Hi Mrs C, We are just out side Maidstone. So not all that far.
    We have our medicals on Monday, I am a little worried about what this means for the kids.
    Fingers crossed it will just be a quick once over and a sticker. :)

    We have not made our mind up about final destination in Brisbane. As we have never been before. I have been searching throught the information about the suburbs but now I have looked at soooo many my mind is a boggle and that is with my bullet point notes.

    Luckily my eldest isn't their 'school age' until next year, so we will be just looking for preschool. I say 'just'in the hope that I will find spaces easier than for actual school.

    oops just realised I have got a bit carried away and am rambling.
    Bye for now.
