    Looking forward to watching them, think it will be about 7.45pm here. Hope you're happy with your programme, I'm sure it will be great. When did you film it?

    Filmed last feb when the weather was beautiful in Adelaide, we made our decision to move to Adelaide on the programme because of what we saw, the people we met and the beaches were amazing, everything we was hoping for. Unfortunatly because of the on going financial downslide in the UK ,and the exchange rate so poor, we are still in snowy Kent UK. We are staying optimistic though.

    Intrigued to know where house number three was! Looked amazing and prices in Adelaide aren't rising too much either. Do hope you can live the dream soon.

     

    We hope to get our CPV Visas (takes 22-24 months in all) at the end of this year and hope to be away by spring 2012. Do hope you manage to get there before we do - $ is up a bit today!

    hi

     

    the programme was great,, we went to look at that house and fell in love with it but it had white ants in the roof trusses of the garage so took a long time to sell. It did sell about 6 weeks ago but will need alot of work on the garage roof and gaud knows where they have spread too,, so in the long run that house wasnt meant to be eh,, good luck with moving over, it will happen, it took us 4 years from when we got our visa and you think it will never happen but if you really want it then it wil, good luck

    Dont give up hope - we have just moved to Adelaide on the 1st Jan 2011 - what a great way to start the New Year.

     

    We have also been caught up in the UK's financial situation and been held up for a year in our plans to move, but having come over for a couple of visits we had the bug and took a chance and let our property in Sevenoaks, Kent.

     

    Wish you all the best and hopefully we might meet up soon 'Down Under'.

     

    Not sure how we can get to see the latest series on the BBC as we have not hooked up to FoxTel yet - if anyone can help let us know.:jiggy:
