Hi Matt, congrats to your anniversary of living over there, I was trying to send you a PM, wouldnt allow it! anyways was gonna ask about torrens Transit, when we lived over there, my hubby passed the interview & was about to start training but his mum sadly passed away, lots of people put him off bus driving over there saying it would be highly stressful & not worth it, can you give me a bit more info on working over there as a bus driver please? he could possibly go for it again when we return maybe!
Bus driving here is the same as the UK but with older buses but a lot less hassel and better maney for less hours.
Average 6to 8 hrs a day monday to fri with the option of doing more if you want, everyother sat or sun. average take home between $700 to $900 pw possible upto $1200+ if ya wanna put the hours in. Ya gotta kinda have a pretty screwy sence of humor.
G'day Matt, and Mandy!
Like you, we reach our anniversary on the 20th, just 4 days after you.
Seems the pathway is simmilar too, we bought our house in June and feel very settled now.................though mandy got it right about calvary!! Glad shes happier at flinders.
Take care and happy anniversary
Congratulations - great chaper in a new book - hope to rewrite our new story soon (hurry up visa!) looking forward to next years instalment x

All good Matt, thanks.
Ask Mandy if theres any jobs going in recovery or endoscopy would you; i have had a gutful of calvary..................people are nice, mostly; and the care is good, but no bloody education, no real fairness in the shifts, parking is pants...............and madatory comps are causing me a minimum 13 hr day. Guess thats the private sector for you...................
Glad about the house,
Yeah Flinders Medical is taking on in all departments to do with theaters and they seriously value UK nurses that have been doing it a while and you get paid more as well ;).
Mandy hated the parking and the stupid hours at the Calvary, she never did get the parking permit they promised her lol lol lol.
If ya wanna meet up for a few beers some time, im sure mandy would give you all the goss, pro's and con's of Fkinders.
Congrats Matt, glad its all coming together
Thats an awesome post mate....good effort and heres to the rest your lives out here....
