Hi all, We are a family of 4 hoping to move from Cumbria with twin 14 yr old girls , OH is a self employed Plumber but is hoping to become employed in Oz. I am a primary school teaching assistant but am willing to do anything to pay the bills (am presently also working as a Clinical Support Worker in hospital). After scouring internet for info am torn between two areas. West - have friends in North haven and i think west lakes looks gorgeous but also fancy anywhere from Seacliff to O'Halloran Hill to Hallett Cove down south.
Am looking for a happy balance between easy access to city (driving and public transport - thinking ahead for kids)but not too far out in the sticks. Plenty of work (especially for OH i.e. plumbing). House prices important (decent 3 bed with pool or room for one for $400 k), good public high school, also access to decent shopping, entertainment. Dont want to be too urban and dont mind being away from the beach if we can afford a pool.
Well theres my wish list...now the reality...could all you ozzies and poms already living the dream (or maybe just some of you) please offer your advise or opinions regarding any of the above.
I know theres no substitute for getting out there and pounding the streets but in the meantime...Would love to hear from anyone about anything relevent.
Cheers peeps x
