As for the offer of a drink, I enjoy white wine, so thats a definite (when we get out there ) I sometimes think I have three boys instead of two children and a husband so i take to opportunity to get my own back when I can ;) we are quite a fun loving family, a bit of a quirky sense of humour at times, that makes a lot of life easier to live with....
Looking forward to anymore news and replies.

We started the whole procedure early 2009, were allocated a Case Officer on 7 december, the same day Julian was born. He [edit: the CO that is, not Julian] asked for additional information, medicals and pcc. Medicals are on their way to Oz now, so hopefully an answer in the next month or so.
If positive, we would like to go somewhere in the second half of this year. Not exactly planned yet, because we'd hate to be all prepared and then get 'no'...
What made you choose Adelaide over Perth?

We watched it last night and thought you all came across really well. So far you have been the most positive about the differences in cost of living compared to the UK. All the best with your future plans and hope you make the move soon.

Bet there were a few grumbles in your house last night - the high of being the on the BBC at the start of the day, only for Liverpool to fail miserably ! :(
Liverpool to fail ...
Aye your not wrong there but I have to be honest, football does absolutely nothing for me, except give me time out alone to browse the stores lol... ahh well tis life, but they do need to pick up their pace a bit for all the fans that continually support them (my THREE boys included)

positive all the way,
keep me posted as to your progession to Oz.
Just wanted to add that we watched your programme last night too... and yes you were definately the most positive about moving!
You seem a lovely family and your son bringing in the loo roll to mop up tears...what really fab sons you've got! Fantastic.
We are also hoping to be out there before Christmas this year.... just waiting....waiting!!!
