Hi Eddie
I agree with you, it is getting so expensive here, but like everywhere i suppose.
But, its not all about that, its having a better quality lifestyle isnt it, thats why we are all going isnt it?!

we had our first viewer round this morning, felt really sad showing someone round my lovely home. almost made me change my mind, almost but not quite! although i love my home i dont love where it is and like most people, if i could take my house with me i,d be happy! but i know i will find somewhere else thats as nice or even nicer and make that my home. more sad about my dog. we, like others have decided not to take her as it will reduce the chances of rental so much. our very good friends are going to have her when we go to portugal in july with a view to having her when we go. It all makes me sad but not enough to make me change my mind and stay. Sorry mum! x

Well, we have decided to bring our move to Perth forward from summer 2009 to January 2009. We have been thinking about it for a while but then kept changing our minds back to July thinking we might have a bit more money to take with us. We now realise its not about the money, its about staring a new life and drawing a line through this one. We have had a tough time over the years, like most people do at some point in their lives. Wont bore you all with the details but when David was made redundant just before christmas it was kind of the final straw! We had an estate agent round today, not great news, house worth less than we thought, and like most people on aussie move, we will probably have a hard time selling and come away with a lot less than we would like. Our nightmare has only just begun!! But, we remain optimistic and we will get through it like we have got through all the other crap times in our lives. There is a light at the end of the tunnel and we are going(albeit probably slowly!) to reach it! And what a light its gonna be!
