4 Years Today - Living in Adelaide
Boxertony posted a topic in Aussie Chat4 years today my family and I arrived in Adelaide, with 5,000 pounds no jobs, no car, no furniture, and a rental home for one month. 4 years later and now I live in large three bedroom home with a large swimming pool in the garden and only ten minutes walk to our local beach (Henley Beach). I have a lush new bright red convertible, so many amazing friends, who are more like my Aussie family. I enjoy a great social life, I play golf with the lads every Sunday and have sun tan for 7 months of the year. Been to Sydney, Gold Coast and also Bali. Nathan my Son has given us a gorgeous cute Grandson called Harlow-Blu Millar Smith and now lives in the Gold Coast. Shannon my daughter is settled with a good job, nice car and partying at the weekends. My daughter Charlotte is growing up fast and turning into one gorgeous lady and becoming more intelligent from school every day. My precious wife (Jane) is a Nurse at Calvary North Adelaide Hospital and the rock of this family, she is genuine, she cares for us all and she provides for us in all ways. My mother has visited us twice and Jane's cousin has been once and coming again this year. My family and I are looking forward to attending my sister's wedding in Burnley, Lancashire in June 2014 and most of all seeing my Dad. I followed my dream and all my dreams have come true. Australia has embraced me and I will becoming a Citizen of Australia. We have had some hard times, I have been laid off from 5 jobs and my 6th job (which I am now physically unable to perform), caused me a back injury, disc bulges and sciatica and I have had two epidurals so far. I have had surgery on both shoulders and Jane has been diagnosed with a potential serious health problem. Three years ago I was constant fighting with my two oldest children because they wanted to go back to the UK, but I just about managed for them both to agree to stay in Australia for another year till we gained permanent residency. Two years in and they loved living in Australia. I am currently recovering from back injury and not earned any money since September 2013. I am constantly looking for work. But I still believe that I am living the Aussie dream.................

Guest posted a topic in Visa's and MigrationHi guys Well hubby and I have started the ball rolling, I have been gathering my documents for my skills assessment (176 ss teacher) and hubby has got in contact with his company in oz to be considered for a work transfer. So we are well and truly underway with our new adventure. I have been doing lots of research and had a few questions. What is the lifestyle like in Adelaide - the way of life? Staying close to adelaide where are the nicer areas to live, we would like to be near a beach! What is the cost of living like - clothes, groceries and eating out? What kind of social activities are there to do? Is it possible to rent a place with a pool? I'm a primary teacher - what would be the best way to hit the ground running in terms of jobs? Sorry! Lots of questions! Hope someone can help! Dani xx
