I have been lurking about in the background since I found this wonderful site and can I just say you have helped convince us to take the plunge!!
DH and I are both mental health nurses and were offered jobs in June this year in Adelaide. Unfortunately this coincided with my working world collapsing around me as well as discovering I was pregnant with baby no 2. As you can imagine this caused several rethinks and lots of confusion. We have been very lucky that the agency hired to hire us have been understanding about the mixed messages we have given them particularly after I explained what had happened to me at work (harrassment, bribery and blackmail) and as the financial aspect of it has been resolved we can now return to our plans to emigrate!!
Don't need too much advice (as yet) since we still have to sit our ielts (any help greatly appreciated) and I have the imminent birth of our second child to get to grips with. DD will be 4 when we hope to come over (around sept/oct 11) so will no doubt be asking plenty nearer the time about schools and the like as I will have to make the decision about whether to start her at school here in August 11 or just wait until she turns 5 in Oz.....hey ho.
Thanks for reading and keep up the good work persuading us that there is a better life for us in Adelaide!! (not too difficult when the present temp is -1 !!)
