Let's see now - rainy, cold blighty versus Port Pirie, a car, free training, being met at the airport etc etc. No contest. Enjoy Australia, folks! PS Hot up there in summer, make sure you get an air-conditioned house and car!
Hi Congrats on the job, what company is it for, I ask this because I too have a job in port pirie and we are hoping to go this year, I am classed as a boilermaker (fabricator/welder in UK). we are in contact with another british family already there and they say its lovely, we got a information pack sent to us from port pirie council and its looks good, ok poeple say its nothing like adelaide, so what I say its a job at the end of the day and hey if after 6- 12 months you dont like it, you can look in adelaide. The main thing is you got a job, so you are earning money straight away, that cant be a bad thing can it.
Let me know who the company is and I will let you know about my job too.
If you want to get in touch just send me a private message on here.
As you know I've already PM'd you about Port Pirie. I think it's great that your husband has landed a well paying job. As you've probably seen elsewhere on PIA lack of money and employment causes lots of stress. At least you'll avoid all that. Port Pirie may not be exactly what you envisaged when you began planning your move but who knows what new oportunities it may bring. Hopefully you'll make lots of new friends and have a busy social life. I wish you all the best and please keep us all posted as it would be great to hear how you get on.
HI, why don't you check it in Google maps - Streetview, like that you can see what the town looks like ... quite a few streets are on it.
