Didn't have any problems getting our rental.
They did contact our work references (within a few hours of submitting the application) though to check that we were working.

First of all, I cannot believe where the time has gone, it has just flown by!
We now have a long term rental in Butler, just round the corner from our friends, it is really close to the necessary amenities and 5 minutes drive to the beach. We are not certain that this is where we will want to buy but at the moment it is perfect.
We had lots of problems with our rental at first but we are getting there slowly. I wont bore you with the details but if you want any further info message me.
Mark has a permanent job for a engineering company that manufacture and maintain mining equipment. I am half way through a 3 month contract for a mining company in the CBD and am currently looking for a permanent job.
We are starting to settle into our new laid back lifestyle and sometimes I have to pinch myself that it is real. We try to make the most of our weekends (as Monday to Friday is very much work orientated) and have been to lots of beautiful places.
As everyone says it is very up and down emotionally, being away from family is very hard when you are not just down the road.
My little sister and family have just booked their flights for Christmas and New Year and I am waiting for my Mum to book hers too. Mum is going to be our first UK visitor and I am so excited that they are all coming out to see us and maybe secretly hoping that they might want to come to stay!
