G'day everyone Just starting to really look into the whole emigration thing. It has occupied my mind constantly for the past few years since the smallies were born. I am still 3 years away from moving (anyone know of anything I can start yet?) for various reasons, but am so excited I want to be sick. Have a brain full of silly ideas, including: buying a house over the 'net so I don't have to pay rent when I arrive; taking 6 months off when I arrive (I figure I deserve it); doing anything for a job that does not involve sitting in front of a chuffing PC all day. But all I really want is to live somewhere warm, where my children can grow up with a great attitude to sport and a sound perspective on life. Meanwhile I intend to take life a whole lot less seriously, relax and when it all gets too stressful sit in the hot tub with Mrs Impatient. At the moment I am just browsing these sites and writing lists of things I need to do! Seems to be endless, but exciting at the same time, just wish I was closer to going so that I could apply for something!
