We have been here since April 27. Similar in that my husband has been the one working. We bought a home in Prospect just north of CBD. The job market is very slow. I am looking for a PA role even with a degree because jobs with my Environmental qualifications are few and far between. I have interviewed with Hays recruiting and they were honest. Many retrenchments occurring and many people going for a few roles.
cost of living is jaw dropping. I still convert to pounds which stops me buying unnecessary items. Necessary stuff like hair, I used to get my roots done every couple of weeks for £10 (just hairline/parting line) here it is $75. Arrhhhhh.
but oh my, the weather and the gardens and the trees and the wildlife and the lifestyle and the clean clean everything and the schools and the happy happy everywhere.
