Well we been here 4 weeks today. It been going well so far. Flight over was good. Managed to get 8 large suitcases, 1 tool box, 5 hand luggage, the laptop, a double buggy and the eldest from one end of terminal 3 at heathrow to the other in one piece. Justin managed to push two trollies. Kids were really good on flight as well which helped. Stayed one night in Singapore, booked what was meant to be a family room, it had one queen bed and one single bed. Bit hard for 2 adults and 3 little kids to sleep in. But kids didnt sleep so didnt matter anyway. Second flight went well. Our daughter decided to be sick an hour before landing so that was fun. Thankfully had a change of shorts for her but no shoes. It was 37 degrees when we arrived, a bit of a shock coming from the minus's. Got picked up at airport by meet and greet and taken to our On Arrival Accommodation in Paradise. It a nice house, got 3 big bedrooms and a big bathroom, lots of spcae down stairs and a good kitchen. Only thing missing is the air conditioning. They provided 2 fans which were great for kids at a night. There is a covered park right opposite which the kids have really enjoyed playing on every night. We spent the rest of the day asleep. The day after we arrived we went into the City and activated bank account which we had opened whilst in UK, got medicare cards sorted and a sim card each for our phones. Hired a car, which we replaced a week later with one we brought.
We were originally looking to stay around Port Adelaide due to Husbands job. He got offered a job whilst in the UK which he took. When we arrived and met the man all was good Justin was going to start week after. But we been having a good look around at areas, places etc. Personaly I prefer the south. The area I concentrated on when we did our research for SS was Woodcroft. We had a drive down south and decided we would prefer to live there. Justin had seen a job in the paper for a job which was basically the same as he did in UK, same machine everything. He phoned up and was told they had someone in mind but to send his CV to them. We e-mailed CV and within half hour we had a call asking him for an interview. He went next day for interview and got the job. He starts on 16th, so he is looking forward to earning some money. We managed to secure a rental in Morphett Vale and we got the keys today. Moving in over next few days so really excited about that. Got new beds being delivered so will be able to sleep on something but will be living like squatters in the living room until our container arrives at the end of the month.
We have spent some money, we brought £10,000 which got us just over $17,500. It has all gone. Had to transfer some more over which has thankfully hit our account today.
All in all we are enjoying ourselves and everyone we met has been really nice.
Sorry if I gone on abit once I start talking/typing I cant stop.
