Hi all. Shiny new thread. smile

MunchkinsMumof2 Tue 29-Jan-13 09:54:21

Well done, Sparkling

Sparklingbrook Tue 29-Jan-13 09:54:44

Follow on from this thread.

Note I have put it in the correct section this time. grin

MunchkinsMumof2 Tue 29-Jan-13 09:55:21

I don't know about Dylan's parents as he's not mentioned them.

Does anyone ever vote for the UK in the end?

northender Tue 29-Jan-13 09:56:15

Marking my spot. Good episode today

Sparklingbrook Tue 29-Jan-13 09:56:24

Awww. They are going. No home visit required. smile

Sparklingbrook Tue 29-Jan-13 09:57:03

Why is Nicky in the jungle? confused

sailorsgal Tue 29-Jan-13 09:57:31

Well I guess salbertini it depends on how much you earn. smile

I used to spend around £50-£60 a week and its nearly £100 a week for 3 of us. We don't even eat much meat.

MrsReiver Tue 29-Jan-13 09:57:46

I was just wondering Sparkling, that was very random.

sailorsgal Tue 29-Jan-13 09:59:16

I think it was very obvious today that they will go. good luck to them. And looking out at the shitty weather outside I might be going too. grin

Horsemad Tue 29-Jan-13 09:59:27

I didn't think Lyndsey looked totally convinced. sad

SomeBear Tue 29-Jan-13 09:59:29

I hope we get a revisited for this couple and find that everything worked out for them. It's refreshing to watch an episode that didn't make me tut! smile

MunchkinsMumof2 Tue 29-Jan-13 09:59:32

Aw, loved them, I hope they have a really happy life together in Oz and we get to re-visit them.

Sparklingbrook Tue 29-Jan-13 09:59:37

She was hiding in the bushes MrsR. confused

Piffpaffpoff Tue 29-Jan-13 10:00:49

They were lovely! Best of luck to them.

AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 29-Jan-13 10:13:47

Watching on a delay at the minute, but seem to have missed how they are able to go - is she a real teacher or a teaching assistant? Who is the primary visa applicant?

Sparklingbrook Tue 29-Jan-13 10:45:15

She is a primary school teacher Anne so she is going to be the main breadwinner.

AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 29-Jan-13 10:58:00

Ah, thanks Sparkling, I missed that.

susiedaisy Tue 29-Jan-13 11:42:50

Marking my place grin

Ooooh! looks like I am in for a good watch tomorrow smile

Katz Tue 29-Jan-13 22:00:53

Liked today's couple, was sadly excited as I used to live near the beach they showed them walking on at the start of the programme. In fact I met my DH at a pub which was just behind them, although its apartments now! Ah memories.

Sparklingbrook Wed 30-Jan-13 06:37:45

I think it may be a 'Revisited' today. Not sure about that.

Trazzletoes Wed 30-Jan-13 06:44:32

Ooh hello, can I join a little bit please? <stands nervously in corner shifting weight from foot to foot and doing annoying Princess Diana eyes>

I don't always watch but am madly addicted to the programme...

Yes, some people do vote to stay at home in the end... Occasionally...

I'm just wondering what makes you tut?!

For me it's that they never have a clue how much property is worth (do your research people!!!) and are always stunned that a) their house is worth about £40,000 less than they expected; b) the house they want is way out of their budget and c) the cost of living is invariably about 400x higher than they thought.

And the people on the videos... Almost never say "we are so happy that you are doing something for you - can't wait for the holidays!" It's always "poor us, how can we ever cope without you, we will have no one to talk to and it's all your fault, selfish ones".

Sparklingbrook Wed 30-Jan-13 06:58:15

Of course Trazzle, you are most welcome. smile <budges up>

Tut at-

Pushy Mums making their DH's go when they don't want to.
Unrealistic expectations re money generally.
Nicky's home visits

Everything really......
