Hello everyone. We are Mel and David and four kids who hope to move out to Perth next summer to start a new life! How excited are we? Very! I am due to qualify in adult nursing in July 2008 and have just been offered my first job so the hard work and stress has paid off. I want to get a years experience before we move, hence the reason why we will be giong next year. I have a brother in Melbourne but never been out to see him but after all the research we have settled on Perth. I have started keeping a book that i keep all my notes in about Perth and all the tips i pick up from bloggs, forums etc. I love my book! Its become my bible, how sad is that!! We have a house to sell here but will rent for the first 6 - 12 months in Perth before we commit to buying anywhere. I wish we could go sooner as it all looks so lovely and i,m so excited! I just know we will love it and wish we had moved out sooner. But for us, its best to wait till next year. I,d just like to say thankyou to all the people who give advice to those like me who know nothing,i have picked up some really helpful tips and advice since we became serious about moving. I hope i can do the same when my knowledge grows!
