and another one jumping on ...
i've been reading up on you for quite some time now. as you can guess we also want to go to adelaide :D
and so i thought it's only fair to let you know about your new 'stalker' - no hiding anymore, especially since i had to 'involve' tim to get activated (- thanks for doing it so promptly!!)
well, what to tell you really. we are a family of 4. myself, my other half, and 2 youngens (boy 3, girl 1.5)
we are in the process of applying for oh's tra as a fitter. we are chasing old employers for references - not an easy task :shock: - especially since they actually don't exist anymore :roll:
but we are almost there!
i guess i'll be boring you with lots of question soon!
keep up the good work (i got lots of useful info already 'thumbs up')
Nice to see you out in the open so to speak. :P
Ask away coz you may ask a question I haven't thought of yet. :lol: There is always someone with the answer. :D
Welcome to PIA, and good luck with our TRA. Plenty of helpful nice people on this forum always ready to answer all sorts of questions.
Have you been to aus before, if so have you taken the kids.
thanks guys! thanks for the nice welcome :)
well pete, i am not sure i can ask anything you haven't yet
nope bev. we haven't been once and we've only just decided we won't go on a reccie either :shock: - i see you also have 2 smallish kids!
have you been yet? and what is vetasses getting you assessed for? i am certain i read somewhere what they do but with reading all this things lately my head is on overload :D
My husband and I have travelled over before, without the kids, and this March hubby did a sort of reccie on his own due to the expense, and not wanting to do a return trip with the little ones. Don't mind on a one way ticket off course.
Don't know if I can say what my hubby is getting assessed for, might get banned from the forum :lol: :lol: :oops: :oops: No, hes an real estate maqager. vetassess seem to take so much longer then tra though, getting me all stressed and frustrated.
sorry abot spelling, 9mth old trying to helpwith typing. :D :D
Hi mOZzy were in Bracknell Berkshire how about you?
omg!! we are in bracknell too :shock: :shock:
it's not THAT a bad place .. really :P
BEV :D at being 'scared' about mentioning your oh job! will that be an advantage for you getting a house once over??? - might keep this relationship warm
very generous from you to send him off on a reccie on his own though :lol:

Hi and welcome to the site

Our agent has said TRA is currently taking up to a month to respond for jobs in demand so 3 and a half weeks to go.
guess we can spur each other on then! also you are already ahead :?
we are using an agent too; i just don't want to 'fail' because of something stupid 8)
it's quite a nightmare though. luckily oh has finally found someone but since she is 'only' HR and not technical and not his old company really (they have merged with a big one) blablabla .. so our agent suggested to get her to confirm that he worked for them and did his apprenticeship and that he does a stat.dec for the actual work he did
and more money down the solicitors
but at least it's going in the right direction!!!
oops sorry for rambling on but i don't have anyone really to talk about all this :D (either they don't know yet or don't understand or get bored after 2 min :? )
Know what you mean, its good to have someone to talk to or vent sometimes. Especially when you're either trying to keep it a secret, or those that do know don't understand the attraction, or maybe imply your making a big mistake!!!
Yes, my hubby was very lucky wih his solo trip, He had a pretty good time, while I got stuck home looking after two scamps. It was a busy couple of weeks, and I've told him never again. Next time, we definately go together, and hopefuly with a one way ticket!!
Keep in touch
