    Thanks for all the info. Buttoneska, very usefull.

    Can I ask, do you know if insects inside the house are a problem in Inverloch. My husband has to catch on average everyday a dozen or so crickets, sink bugs and spiders inside the house and we have fly screens on all the windows so can't understand how they get in. We've been away two days and have come back to 16 dead ones in the corridors as we left an indoor bug spray on and saw a few more running around. When I asked the retail agent about the last pest inspection, I was told this was the norm in Inverloch as it is a coastal town, but I can't believe everyone in Inverloch puts up with having insects walking around the house. My husband also grew up in a coastal town in NSW and he said he's never encountered as many bugs as this on a daily basis. Does this sound right or should I make more of fuss for the landlord to look at how and why they are coming in?

    I would request another pest treatment. We have a few spiders and some flies buy not heaps. What agent are you renting through. Also there was an article in the local paper by the CDs saying those plug in bug things and air fresheners are fire risk.

    We're renting through Alex Scott. They have been really good so I hope they will be good with this issue too as it has really put us off the house now and we've only been here 3 weeks and have a 6 months lease.

    Gosh I've only been living down here 3 weeks and we seem to have encountered every type of weather going. People said in NSW moving down here would be diferent, and I guess they were right!

    We starting to get sorted now. Hubbie started work Friday and all seems to be going well, but we'll see once the kids actually start back at school on Friday how much he likes it then

    We had no luck getting Naresh into the Bass Coast Childrens Centre in Wonthaggi, but have thankfully got him into the Leongatha one so he'll be starting this Thursday and going on Thurs & Fri and we're going to see if they still have the space open on Monday as well as I want to look for a part time job and having him in child care for 3 days will hopefully help with that.

    I did apply for Front Desk at the RACV resort last Monday and actually got a call on Tuesday inviting for interview the next day, unfortunately we were halfway up the road to Ballarat so had to say no, and they said they would call me back Monday if no suitable candidates were found as they would be interviewing again this week. I guess they found them as I never got a call

    I was also thinking about doing a childcare course or education support one, but hubbie would prefer I got a job so more money coming in. I've been thinking about going into education for a while so maybe I should take the plunge, but doing it would invovle spending money enrolling instead of the money coming our way. Wish I could win the lotto

    Anyway, enough waffle from me. Hope everyone is well xx

    yeh it has been a bit full on down here, normally its rains alot but it cools down. we have had this wierd humid rain weather which i don't like and today was super windy.

    don't stress about RACV - they mustn't be very nice to work for becuase they seem to go through that many staff. Its insane, they are always advertising.

    if you are looking for part time work just pick up the local papers (sentinel times and the star). Sentitel is more inverloch/wonthaggi area and star is more leongatha. Leongatha may suit better if your little one is in care over there. Papers come out on Tuesdays.

    Also look at both bass coast and sth gippy council sites, they often have positions adviertised although it can be a bit hard to get in there I have heard.

    Workways is an employement agency in Leongatha alot of local companies hire through them so they may be worth talking to.
