Thanks for the reply and the nice welcome! I am very new to this forum and still a little unsure of what to expect but it has so much info on it! I'm in the early days of applying. My skills assess has gone today which is great but I know that I have a long way to go. Are you heading out soon? and if so where are you going in Adelaide? I'm going out for a very short holiday in April to look around and find good areas to live. I'm emigrating by myself so it's all a bit scary! Mind you I'm very excited as well.
