Rain - your mentality changes when your here.
Kids smiling and enjoying life
Walking round the city
So much greenery, even in the city
Crikey the list could go on and on......but its all boody good....HEAPS GOOD !! in fact...
i love...... that when there's a north wind doth blow it's not gonna be snow, it's gonna be HOT!
coming down the hill into Victor the view always makes me smile.
watching dolphins play in the waves
boogie boarding in the summer.....ace fun
knowing that looking like a beached whale in a swimming costume on the beach is not going to warrant a second look from anyone
wearing thongs for most of the year
watching the adverts on telly and marvelling that yes they actually DID say that on tv (the take care of your beaver ad gets me every time)
slapping on sunscreen as a matter of course after the shower in the morning knowing that yes you will need to do that today
I could go on and on
What a great idea for a thread!! Well done
Appart from what has already been said...............
You can watch The Ashes on free to air TV and that IS free to air. No TV licencing here.
Cooking dinner in the garden even in winter.
Having plants growing in gardens that you could only keep indoors in the UK.
Wild birds flying around full of wonderful colours.
The deep blue skies.
Fresh fruit and veg that are full of flavour
25kph limits at school times that people actually stick to.
Knowing that there will be a summer.
Being able to afford to go out as a family more often.
Going to work on a winters morning and not having to defrost the windscreen first.
To be honest there is very little that I don't like about living here.
I love "STUBBY COOLERS" dont think ive seen anyone mention that yet, and premix JD , Jimbeam. and of corse "Drive-thru" bottleshops......woohoo. my wifey couldnt believe we have drive thru bottle shops.........pmsl. oh and i forgot to say I love the BLACK night sky on a stary night.........have you guys ever seen so many stars? i love kicking back in my hamock at night just gazzing at the milkyway in all its glory.....:)

I know its already been said, but what a great post from all you guys living over there. There is so much doom and gloom around at the moment, its nice to look at things in a positive light instead of a negative one. It certainly gives us over here something to make all the waiting and expense seem worthwhile. I know it wont work for everybody, but its nice to hear from those that it has.
We had our summer yesterday, today its overcast and raining.
Meds' next week, 1 more thing off the to do list.
Well done so far, the medicals are the final thing, then you just sit and wait and look forward to your new life, good time to start planning, hopefully you have plenty of ideas now! it won't be long before you are posting from this side! By the way, we are having our summer at the moment, and it's still winter!!
