Sorry its taken me so long to post a message on here - I did type a long post - took me 35mins, but pressed a button and lost it all!!doh!.
For those who dont know - we bought a house in Seaford Rise from over the net, when we were back in the uk. The first time we saw it was when we arrived on 21st august........Its lovely and even better than what we expected - we are really chuffed with it.
We stayed in Port NOarlunga motel for 3 nights - as we didnt have any beds or anything to sleep on in our new home - so for the first 3 days we spent inside shops...looking back it was hard on the kids - we hardly fed them and we were all a bit short tempered with each other. We had to buy EVERYTHING..bed sheets, cutlery, iron, everything you need to live basically. After 1 week shopping, the kids were begging us to take then to school!! - So, after a week and a half here they started Seaford Rise primary shcool - so far, so good - both have made lots of friends.
The first couple of weeks was really really hectic - the pace has just lessened off and Im looking forward to catching up with people.....Yesterday, I dropped the kids off at school and took a lovely walk on my own along Moana beach - it was heaven.....I feel so lucky to be here - its beautiful. All the beaches we have been to so far are gorgeous, the sea is so blue and clear...........everything seems to be in techno color..
Chris is still looking for work, thats the only thing that would just complete everything for us...its only been 4 weeks, but we both crave that routine...(chris to be at work, me to be a home sorting house and kids out)....
We didnt bring a container - we just have 20 boxes coming over with personal belongings, pc, photos etc......we decided to sell our stuff and buy new here - our stuff isnt coming until mid october - so having to use internet at Library at the mo.
The weather has been lovely since we arrived - only a couple of overcast days when the sun hasnt been out - Ive worn flip flops everyday!
I love it here..its gorgeous and every day I thank my lucky stars that we are here....we are spending quality time with the kids - going on bike rides, walks and being outdoors alot more - just what we wanted.
The rollercoaster ride of waiting for our visa just seems like a dream now - its weird........For all those who are still waiting - it'll soon be your turn!
Will try and catch up again soon
