    Hi you all,

    just introducing myself. I love looking at this website you are all so positive.

    In similar situation to most people really i.e. considering moving to adelaide.

    My partner has worked there and he really liked it.

    I just worry about the kids as they have to come first. Can't really bribe then with the promise of swimming everyday, pools, dolphins etc (or can I?)

    I look to you guys for inspiration.

    Our jobs are on the demand list so that shouldn't be a problem.

    Look forward to chatting some more.

    Hi Debbie

     

    When we started to plan our move our children were 5 & 12 (now 6 & 13), but we included them in all the long discussions, showing them things on interenet etc and now they cant wait to be there, I had to a sleep chart for my 6 year old with how many sleeps we have left because I got tired of him asking.

    We are hoping to go about June/July.

     

    Our little ones are 7,5,2 and 6 months. They are (well the older two are) really looking forward to going. They keep asking, everyday in fact, when we are going and have we got the visa yet. You just gotta sell it to them. We showed them pictures and stuff on the computer and got them excited about going.

    hello and welcome to pia :wubclub:

     

    the younger one shouldn't be a problem really.

    the older one well, bribery works for us alot :D

     

    i am sure you'll find something to make it interesting for her!!

    and in the end you are doing it for them and sometimes we just have to take charge!

     

    my older one is 3.5 and yesterday after the medical he said 'can we go to australia now? where is the ticket?!' .. .brainwashed or what :jiggy:

    Many thanks to you all for replying. What time is it there?

    I am currently on maternity leave so have nothing better to do so it is quite good talking to you lot.

    I don't know if to use a migration consultant or not.

    HI Deb & family

     

    we are looking to go march/april or as soon as house sold!! I have 2 boys 6 1/2 & 3 (next week). My eldest son is areally looking forward to the move, but every so often mentions his best mate George & how he will miss him, its hard but we are doing it for our children. I have promised that we will keep in touch (I have to say I'm quite good at that) via e-mail, letters etc Georges family want to come for a holiday, which I'm sure they will. At the end of the day I think he is young enough to adapt & make new friends. Anyway good luck with the process & welcome to PIA! Re the agent, I would get a free consult with one of them see how you go, we didnt use one, so it is do-able>. What is it that you do for a job.

    Hi Debs,

     

    welcome to PIA, it's good that you see the positive side of things through this website, as this is what it does best!

     

    I'm sure your kids will be fine when they go, I have a 9 and a 6 year old and whenever they talk about missing their friends, I too say that we will keep in touch with them so that when we come back for a visit they can catch up with them in person. Also I've told them they will make loads of new friends and how cool is it to have friends all over the world, how popular with they be!!!

     

    Good luck to you and your family x

    Hi Debs,

     

    Welcome to PIA.

     

    We have two girls aged 8 and 5. The 8 year old doesnt want to go but the 5 year old is very excited. You cant please everyone and I know that once we get there the eldest will love it as she is very energitic and loves the outdoors. She makes friends very easily when we are on holiday so she will have no problem in a new school.

     

    Hope all goes well for you,

     

    Sue

    HI Deb & family

     

    What is it that you do for a job.

     

    I'm an Occupational Therapist and my partner is an Mechanical Engineer.

     

    We are hoping to get a good score for these jobs as we are both graduates.
