  1. I still have baby brain so am pondering how the passport thing works. We now have both UK and Aussie passports but our little one only has an Aussie one. I've checked that she doesn't need a visa when we go visit family back in the UK but what happens at UK immigration? After 21 hours of flights, we'll be wanting to get through as quick as we can! cheers!
  2. Where to get baby passport photos taken?

    Brilliant - never thought of there! Thanks Jill :-)
  3. Anyone know where to get baby passport photos taken in the Southern suburbs. Had no luck at the colonnades as only Aus Post do them there & not for babies. Last time we used a photo shop which has now closed down :-(
  4. Port Noarlunga primary

    My son has been there since the 4-year old program (he's now 8) and loves it. For us it was important for him to go a local school so he has plenty of friends nearby to play with - on the same street in fact! We had a few to choose from but PNPS stood out for a mile for us. Having said that, it still comes down to your gut feeling when you visit a school - and different schools suit different kids and families.
  5. Hi, not sure if you have had all your answers, in fact you may alreafy by playing. Porties white pointers are Port Noarlunga Primary School team. Give me an email in Portieswhitepointers@gmail.com and u can call you back if your kids are still interested. Or check out our we page portieswhitepointers.weebly.com. if you are at the school hopefully the principle pointed you the right way. Seaford Rangers are also excellent as my son plays there as well. matthew.

  7. Hi guys, just wondering if there's a cheaper option than PayPal to transfer $1500 from relatives back in the UK to our Aussie bank account? PayPal want to charge them 3.4% and then us a fee to put in in our account, and western union charge 30 pounds but have a low exchange rate. cheers for your help!
  8. Wanted: Maxi Cosi baby capsule / car seat before Feb!

    Thanks for that - I'm actually after the capsule primarily for using on the buggy than necessarily in the car as it would mean I could use the same buggy throughout - it doesn't quite lie flat enough for a newborn. There is a carrycot attachment but again - not available easily in Australia! Having gone through various buggies last time round, my micralite won hands down (and at $175 for a new one here in Aus is worth a few workarounds in the first few months)!
  9. Hi I' m wondering if anyone's likely to be selling a Maxi Cosi Cabrio , Cabriofix or Bubble baby car seat between now and the start of Feb (when my baby's due). Despite being very popular car seats in the Uk, they're not sold over here, which is a pity as they attach to my micralite buggy, making it suitable for a newborn. I'm keeping an eye on Gumtree, EBay and Adelaide Baby Bargains but have only spotted them interstate so far. cheers Cat
