    Hi everyone .....

    Just thought I would post as I am returning to the forum after almost a 2 year abcence.....this was because we stood no chance of getting our Visa due to all the changes the Government was making ..... We were told in January that we would still be looking at another 2.5 years on top of the 2.5 years we had already waited... we were gutted and very disheartened...


    Thursday last week we were assigned a case officer and we are now looking at arriving in Brisbane in May 2011 with our 2 boys who are now ages 13 and 11....

    I am wanting to establish some contacts to direct my millions of questions too, so if anyone fancies chatting and helping I would be very greatful !!!!

    hope everyone is well and any advice on Bricklaying jobs/ teaching assistant jobs would be wonderful !!

    Take care guys and hope to chat to some of you soon xxx

    Lisa, Russ, Jack (13) Charlie (11) ......

    Having a tenant arranged already must be a big weight off your mind, well done.

    Yes it is ...... Definalty

    We have rehomed the pet snake already ..... And as we though we would not ever be coming over to Oz, we got a new CHocolate Lab puppy 4 weeks ago who we are now in the process of rehoming... makes me very sad but I know its the right thing for us to do for her... She is far to young to sit out quarrenteen and it's super expensive to bring her.

    Just my three cats to re home now and that's all the heartbreaking stuff done, apart from leaving my lovely family of course.... there's a lot to think about in this leaving the country lark isn't there ??

    Can't you bring the cats with you, and I would check with the vet about the dog and whether she could come out at that age. We brought our pets and they are / have lived long and happy lives here with us. My Charlie (who died a few weeks ago) and Jet came with us to Singapore for a year, then onto Sydney and now Brisbane. Jet is 15 and a happy, healthy old boy.

    I feel for you mate,, we sadly lost our dog a few months before our visa was granted, in a way i was happy to see him at peace as we couldnt have afforded to bring him with us and his age was against him.
    I hope you get good homes for them, try to get e-mail contacts for their new owners so you can check in and see how they are settling once your here, it may help you relax a little.
    Migrating is a massive move and yep there is loadsssssssss to think of,lol, its all worth it once your here though,lol.
