The next West Mids meet is on 4th November 2pm at The Marlbrook, 462 Birmingham Road, Bromsgrove, B61 4HR.
Try and bring your wife along to this and it might help if she can chat to people who are going through the same thing.
Hi Rachel and Jeff,
Can you post some more details about the meet in Nov please? If I can get off work that day we may be interested in coming along if thats OK.
Martin and Val :D
PS: Dave this would be a great chance to meet others and talk through your worries getting that valuable advice and opinion of others.
Thanks for the link I will try and get the time off work.

Hi, thanks for your thoughts and suggestions (even the blunt ones). I registered on this forum particularly to get my wife involved with meeting other people in the emigration process, and even to meet people when we arrive. She has promised to look on the forum tomorrow. I hope she will go the the meet on Nov 4th and we have since agreed to visit Adelaide in January before we continue with the visa application.
Going to Adelaide will be great for both of you, it really is a wonderful place. But remember Australia is a huge country, on our visit earlier this year we hired a camper van and took a slow drive from Adelaide to Sydney via lots of equally wonderful places.
Look at the costs it will be well worth it.
Martin and Val :)
Good idea Dave, she has to come because she wants to, because as adults we become very determined, she might have decided that she wont like it before she comes and stick to that, I have seen it happen, very often! It is a big risk to take that she will change her mind when she arrives. At least with a visit she will see it through different eyes!
