Anyone heading to Adelaide in September 09???
Just wondered if there are any people/families heading out to Adelaide in September??
We are family of 5, myself (30) OH (34) and 3 girls aged 12, 10 and 1.
Got visa grant on 1st July - YIPPPEEEEEEE
We are flying from LHR via Singapore.
Look forward to any replies.
Yes, we are flying out via Singapore on 5th September 2009. What date are you flying? We are flying into Sydney, onto Canberra and then into Adelaide on 18th September. Time is just flying and there is so much to do. From reading a few posts, there are quite a few families arriving September time. Maybe we could have a big meet up when we all arrive!!

We arrived in September last year and for us, it is the best time to arrive. You have a few months to do your running around and settle before the real heat kicks in but you still feel the warmth as you leave the plane.
We were greeted by blue skies and green fields. you really get to see the place at its best.
Hope the sun is shining for you when you arrive because youinstantly get the feeling that you've done the right thing.;)
We are flying out of LHR on 15 September via Singapore.
We are Kay and Swifty (39), Anna (9) and Albie (2), 3 by the time we leave!
Staying with Tyke for 6 weeks to wait for the container and explore the area, I was only thinking the other day that there should be forums listed by the month people are arriving, then we could share help and advice etc. 53 days until I have to move to my Mums house with the kids. Can't wait!
Hiya! we are flying out of LHR on 15/09/09 too! with singapore airlines :)
you should probably hope you're not sitting too near us, twins of 3 years old and a baby who'll be twelve weeks! i'm sure people will panic when they see us!though my mum is coming out with us to help!
ten weeks to go!

They'll have to scream loud as we are flying with BA and then picking up Qantas from Singapore!!! What time of day do you fly out?? We have picked an evening flight in the vain hope that the kids will fall asleep!!
ha ha!perhaps you'll just hear us in the airport then!
we've picked an evening flight too...think we fly out bout 6pm ish....for the exact same reason as you!they've got to sleep at some point!! hopefully!
its only 20 something hours.....how bad can it be?!?!
whats your three year old like? i've got a boy and a girl.....i'm hoping they'll have good cartoons on singapore airline.....tv is the only thing they'll sit still for!
mandy what date are you flying out on?
Anna (9) has been flying long haul since just before she was 3 and once a year since then either to the Dominican or to the States, she tends to get on, eat (whilst moaning about the food) and then sleep! Albie has done one long haul but when he was just over a year old and he was a good boy but he is a bit more 'lively but good humoured' now which is great but other people often don't appreciate other peoples kids, I am hoping that we will sit near people that don't mind a giggle and will play peek a boo through the seats!!!
We are planning on flying in September, maybe early October. Just waiting to exchange contracts on the house and get a date we need to move out by. Then we can book flights. The Solicitors need to get a move on!! Luckily our buyers were happy to wait till September when we sold (a couple of months ago now), now it is all about waiting!
I agree, a meet up would be good on the other side.

They could not do enough for her and there were cartoons and games on the TV for her. Her food came half hour before ours and there were little things for her with her food each time, like finger puppets, crayons etc. I took a princess trolley dolly packed with colour magic, ds games, and new suprises. She slept a lot, it was a night flight. I will not be worried about her when we hopefully return next year. The cabin crew constantly checked on her and made her feel special. Good luck guys, Penny
