I know what you mean about re-take after re-take and trying to remember what you wore on a certain day. We all went for a swim and i made sure they didnt film me in a bikini (just hope they keep their word)!
Like you we jumped at the chance of visiting any city in Oz and were given Darwin which was beautiful but dont think i could cope with humid, hot wet summer but the place was beatifuly and people great.
We were really undecided about Brisbane or Adelaide and after visiting both am really please we decided on Adelaide.
We are now at the waiting stage as just put house on the market so hoping for some luck.
Hope you keep intouch and let us know how you get on as like you we are hoping we will be over there to spend Christmas on the beach.

We were filmed in July in Darwin and are on next wed (episode 13!!), Martin and Andrea from Leeds. We are lucky and since the show have our visa in place but it took 2 years.
You will see my sons on the show and they wont be coming with us just yet as now have to apply for their visa in their own right, you will also see my gorgeous grand daughter whom it will kill me to leave behind (i noticed you feel the same about your niece).
My work are giving me some stick about the show and keep threatening to put it on at work but knowing my late father will be on the show i know they wont really do it. I havnt even told them ive applied for a visa let alone i have the visa and leaving soon!!
I like you are really positive about the move and really cant wait although ive had a few sleepless nights and sure there are more to come.

LOL then I can taunt you (nicely) Take your fathers presence as a keepsake memory, I rang them and asked if my father in law was in the programme, so I was prepared to see him the tears still flowed....
I have taken into consideration the fact that my 14 year old may well be 17 / 18 by the time the visa has been granted, .... not an aspect I am looking forward to dealing with
I have even competed at Karate tournaments in Leeds, PM me if you think to meet would be something you would like to do, ..
Look forward to hearing from you

I also rang and asked them if my dad would be on the show so am prepared, i will also download yours and my program.
At least you will have the visa for your son so if he decides not to come straight away it is always there for him.
I will be making sure i have completed my sons TRA before i leave, he isnt getting away with it that easily.
I would love to meet up soon, I worked in Liverpool for a while although it was over 10 years ago.
I have however heard there is a jobs expo in Manchester in March if you had any plans to go we could meet up there (its about in the middle).
Thats great, im at work too (sooooo busy) wells its friday.
Ive just notice your email address so i will send you an email.
Hi if you have any details for the job expo in manchester could you put them on here or PM me with them as my OH and myself would be interested in going to have a look.
Great idea for all the 2010 newbies to Adelaide to meet for a drink (and barbie?!!!).. will have to arrange something when we all make it over there :)
That sounds good, we will be up for that.....
