They are so winding me up!

Sparklingbrook Wed 30-Jan-13 09:28:59

Jakey is grating my carrot. Feel sorry for 'Kirst'. Fancy not being swayed by a shower room of her own. hmm

Horsemad Wed 30-Jan-13 09:29:52

Feel sorry for the daughter, horrible choice to make.

Sparklingbrook Wed 30-Jan-13 09:29:54

Jeez scone that is shocking. A week??? shock

FatimaLovesBread Wed 30-Jan-13 09:30:18

How do they know if they're overpriced? Are they comparing them to UK prices?

And how old is the grumpy teen?

MrsReiver Wed 30-Jan-13 09:30:43

DH is an accountant - I'll be watching this bit closely grin

EightToSixer Wed 30-Jan-13 09:31:05

Would you not wear a suit jacket or even a tie to a job interview?

Does Trudy work?

Sparklingbrook Wed 30-Jan-13 09:31:09

Why does the Mum dress like a teenager?

SconeInSixtySeconds Wed 30-Jan-13 09:31:29

Oh yes.

We had a great time for 2 years in Oz, but there's no place like home imo

SomeBear Wed 30-Jan-13 09:32:20

I'm tutting at the lack of tie and the chair swinging...

Itsjustafleshwound Wed 30-Jan-13 09:32:36

Being an accountant he will be up against all the Saffers ....

Sparklingbrook Wed 30-Jan-13 09:32:41

You have more reason to be tutting than most then scone. grin

Oodsigma Wed 30-Jan-13 09:32:57

Getting the impression that teenager is an afterthought sad

Sparklingbrook Wed 30-Jan-13 09:33:23

Ooh the budget bit. Should be fun.

DevaDiva Wed 30-Jan-13 09:33:50

Phew found you, thanks for the redirect Sparkling. I'm glad I didn't see this one first time round might be a bit bored if I had.

I'm not sure I can tut at pushy parents making their kids go if they don't want to. I think, until they are adults it's up to parents to make what they consider to be the best decision for them.

I hate the home family video bits. It's emotional blackmail. I do tut at that- and think selfish, selfish! When DS said that he and his GF were thinking of going- she would be the primary applicant as a children's nurse, I said go for it while you're young and have no ties. He was a bit upset and we both ended up crying.

Oh my god! I just spotted that bathroom! What were they thinking?

MrsReiver Wed 30-Jan-13 09:34:04

shock Might have to have a chat with DH this evening.

Yeah, I think Jakey MIGHT be a bit spoilt!!! Check out that room!!!

EightToSixer Wed 30-Jan-13 09:34:34

Why do they always over-estimate what their house is worth?

MrsReiver Wed 30-Jan-13 09:35:21

I hope they factored in the cost of Jakey's Lego habit in their budget. That Star Wars stuff is extortionate.

Sparklingbrook Wed 30-Jan-13 09:36:01

I thought that MrsR. Spoilt Jakey.

DowntonTrout Wed 30-Jan-13 09:36:24

I think the mum has had a bit too much sun!

Sparklingbrook Wed 30-Jan-13 09:36:53

Ooh here we go-outdoor lifestyle, cos no outdoors in Wales. wink

Sparklingbrook Wed 30-Jan-13 09:37:57

Up at 6am for Ozzie Boot Camp. Fab. hmm

FatimaLovesBread Wed 30-Jan-13 09:38:42

How much did they think their house was worth? I missed the beginning.

If she comes after her degree, surely she'll have to have her own visa and job opportunities.

My friend went to live in Perth for a year, she hated it. V expensive and boring she said
