My hubby will be glad to know there are more of the Irish heading out here - but we love Ireland, all of it, North and South - what's made you decide to move to Australia? Was the rain getting you down? :)
You'll find it a bit different out here - not much rain, so not much green either - I'd never seen white grass before I came out here - it's like walking on snow, it crunches and everything.
Good luck! ;)
It doesn't sound as if you are enjoying it over there at the moment,you're right the weather is one deciding factor two years in a row know it has rained all summer,while that may sound ok over there when it also rains all winter too it makes it very depressing we have had about three weeks what you could call good weather and that was in may/june ,we have three boys who at the moment are stuck inside all day for the past 4 weeks because it is so wet. Sorry that was my little rant over,but we will be renting out our house here so if it doesn't work out we can come home and start again but we want to give it a damn good try first.
had a chat with my butcher he said to call in and see him when you get here, he wasn't very forthcoming with wages only that he is much better off now he has his own business (although he works longer hours now)!! I think he came over here about 4 years ago and was originally in partnership with another man who has now sold his share to do something new. would be worth having a chat with him if nothing else, hope all your plans are going well?
