The detail you haven't given us is whether you both are still British Citizens.
Makes a big difference to things, I would think. If you still are then, once you arrive here, there will be no more of a problem accessing the same help that anyone resident in Scotland has. A suggestion, why not contact (by email) the MP, or MSP, of the area in Scotland you once lived in.

Senior Citz

Many Thanks to Babs & the Other very 'Helpful' contributors.
Yes we are both British Citizens & have our British Passports.
Regarding the Argyll's, I am off to write them a letter, this very minute. Many Thanks again for your Thoughts on our Present predicament.
Tom is a recovering Throat Cancer Patient, which always of great concern.
We hope to find some place, even tho' it is just Temporary, which we can afford. Giving us time to sort out our various requirements with Gov't Pension's & all of these other Bodies. Like registering for a Doctor etc.!!
Fife is where we intend to aim for.!! Just don't know where to start looking at this moment. Many Thanks to All on your Friendly Forum. wilsonmary20

Hi WilsonMary

My name is Fred I also am Scottish and proud of it. I live on the Northern Beaches in Sydney if you are within reach I might be able to assist you in buying your lovely Scottish furniture to help you perhaps just a little. If you are interested you can make contact through this forum. Hope I can help you a little ways.

Hello McOz

Hi McOz.
how really nice of you to make such a kind offer. Unfortunately, we live in Adelaide.
Wishing that we were closer. But often that is the way of things.
We are just battling on without too many Illusions left in our present predicament here.
As we live in Private Rental Premises, our present lease is due to expire in March of next year. 2007. Which gives us a bit of time, but the other complication, is the Christmas Period of holidays & nothing really picks up again until February/March. Leaving us, short of time when it comes down to selling stuff. Therefore, it would be wiser to offload everything just now.
In between a (rock & a hard place)!!!
Oh well, we just have to get on with whatever comes up. As Tom has been having some Throat Problems again. I want to get home to Scotland, while we are still able to Travel. All to do with that wicked stuff called Money.
Many Thanks McOz. Take Care. "Your Blood is worth Bottling".!!! wilsonmary

Hi WilsonMary20, Such a shame, unfortunately I don't know anyone in Adelaide to assist. I can only wish you all the best(sincerly) I'm sure that through the Argyll's association some one will be able to assist you.
Take Care,
McOz.
