Picked up some cheap bikes today from BIG W, $126 each and costs $16.50 for them to put it together for you (which we paid as we,ll probably have a massive arguemnet if we did them ourselves!) Basic ladies and gents mountain bikes but seem ok for the price.
Hiring a UTE for when we move into the rental next saturday, alot of places dont take advance booking for only a one day hire but Bunnings do and charge $50 for the day (7am till 7am next day).

Mobile broadband cost us $199 , this came with 1GB which will proably last about 4 weeks. Top up is then $30 for 1GB. To get your mobile phone unlocked cost us $40 in Whitfords shopping centre. Supermarkets can be more expensive for alcohol, its best to look out for deals in the local papers as we have found to do. Bought 12 bottles of Banrock Station white wine which i like today for $48! Should keep me going over the weekend!!!

we told her we are on 457, unless she got it wrong!

Phoned the eduacation department today and if the school has a local attachement area and you live in that area then yes, they do have to offer your child a place. Also, on a 457 Visa you have to wait 10 days after arriving in OZ to register with medicare.
We viewed a renatal today and if interested in it you have to put down a weeks deposit, but this is refunded if not successful - the owner gets to choose who gets the house out of all the applicants.
