    Is there any decent plumbers?

    I know this has been asked before but can anyone recommend a good plumber or two. I have had two come out now, one never bothered to organise a quote and the other I am waiting on. Is it standard practice to just not bother doing a quote if they are not interested in the work? Any recommendations please

  4. Hi, We have a Vy Holden Commodore Acclaim for sale,it's a 2002 with factory dual fuel. It has electric Windows all round,power mirrors,ice cold air con and red hot heater. It has great tyres,and starts on the button every time. Drives very well,with a tow bar too. It was orginally a fleet SA car and has high country kilometres but you wouldn't know it,drives like a car with low kms. It has been well maintained and has had a lot of money spent on it,including just having had a top end engine overhaul with all new gaskets and fluids,new radiator and it has not long had new power steering pump,alternator,battery etc. it has a few minor marks,but nothing for a car of its age/kms. It can be regod no problem. $2000 or $2200 with new reg.

    The right to die in Australia?

    It's a difficult debate with many strong opinions but I do believe that we should have the right to choose. No idea how they would police it all but I for one believe in some situations I would prefer to choose a dignified death of my choice when I choose. But as LC said maybe it should be a completely seperate issue when it comes to voting. There will always be strong fors and against I think for this one, probably more so that any other issues but we have the right to choose many other things why not this.

    does anyone work in Aged Care pls??

    Aged care is one of my job. Ideally you are going to need to do a cert 3 in aged care when you arrive as most companies want it some state you must have plus you csn sometimes find work during the work experience, you can use skills for all to help with the the funding makes it quite reasonable Most of the work is causal so some weeks good some not so good. It's a growing industry especially with the recent consumer directed care for home support. Pm if you want further specific details I am more than happy to tell you my experience etc of the industry
  10. Go past the Corrong and along the coast that way is a nice route we did the trip along the great Ocean at the end of last year
  11. We didn't end up going, I'm way behind on my studies so couldn't justify it would have looked to though. Spent an exciting public holiday surrounded by books and paperwork!
  12. So considering going next weekend as never been and wondered whether anyone had been before and what their thoughts on it are? heres a link for anyone who doesn't know what I'm talking about http://www.weekendnotes.com/hot-air-balloon-regatta-strathalbyn/

    How much money to take?

    I sort of support what has been said, bring what you can. we started on I would say no more than $4k, my oh had secured a job before hand and we had 10 weeks in a rental already paid for. We focused on trying to pay off our uk debt before coming over. im not going to say we lived in the land of luxury but we both brought cars, secured a rental and I did a training course before getting working when it had finished. So you can survive with a bit of planning and pulling in your belt on a lower budget

    Working in your chosen occupation

    My partner does his trade that he came out on ( don't think he could do anything else, think petrol runs in his veins! Bloody mechanics). I was a park ranger for 10 years before coming over and I now work as qualified aged care worker and a trainee veterinary nurse. I miss the practical side of rangering everyday but love the challenge of a new career.

    I brought might and didn't work, so ended up buying another one here. Might be worth checking if you can alter the settings etc

    So I still do not understand the medicare system and not convinced I ever will. My OH had a doctors appointment this week who referred him to a private specialist who advised he needed surgery, but they couldn't do it because we don't have medical insurance other than ambulance & dental.......... so they referred him to go straight to A&E at Queen Elizabeth hospital who then did the surgery on medicare. To say I'm confused would be an understatement, but then I never had any experience of hospitals in the UK to compare to. Is there a simple way to understand the medical care system? But I have to say the nursing staff who dealt with my OH where totally fantastic and I can not fault the care that they provided him especially seeing as he has a phobia of needles they had their hands full! He's home save and recuperating and probably not getting as much sympathy as he should be:nah:

    Looking for work

    Cliffy is right with the aged care subsidised, it is one that is covered by the skills for all scheme, think they have a website that. Can show you what is on offer.

    Looking for work

    Have you thought about considering working in aged care? you could get a cert 3 in the evenings over a few months or in the day time depending on childcare commitments. Its a growing industry that is only going to continue with recent government grants and changes, I've had been working in aged care part-time/full time until recently, since I arrive last year and have never been out of work in it, there might have been quiet times when shifts weren't as frequent but it would balance itself out plus if you wanted to go down the route of nursing it opens doors as well, also might have some of the flexibility you might need with raising children, just a thought or maybe try getting into one of the supermarkets easier said than done I know but if you can get your foot in the door. What do you fancy doing in the long term?
  23. I went into the tax office in the city and the guy gave me my tax file number from when I had been over as a backpacker, there was no problems using the same one

    Strawberry laces

    So here is my question, has anyone seen strawberry laces for sale? Not the sour thick ones but the laces that are about a metre long and thin, you could buy about 15metres in a pack in tesco for about 50p i haven't tried the hallet cove sweet shop yet, so will give that a go tomorrow but wondered if anyone has come across them, I was studying today and realised I was missing my staple study food!
