Just wanted to say thank you all for your support, without this site it would have been very hard for us.
Our flight was so long and tiring but the kids were so good, I couldn't have asked for more. They were so preoccupied with their teles and seat gadgets, they didn't once play with their DSI's, or the travel games that we bought them.
Well were nearly though our first week. To be honest we have had up and downs. I have been so busy that we just have had no time to think.
Got our car, long term rental and banking all sorted.
Went to pay fees and buy school uniform today for the kids... very expensive the uniform came up to a whopping $850, gosh I do miss tescos for stuff like that.
The kids took to St Joseph's in Kensington like ducks to water. It's a very intimate school. Just what they need right now.
I took them to Glenelg beach twice, and they loved it. They kept on asking if we could go again, and the answer was yes it was only a 15min drive!!!
They keep asking when are we going back home, I feel bad to say were not. I hope when the container arrives hopefully in a weeks time they will feel better. Maybe it will be easier once we have all our furniture and they have all their toys?
Everything is so close here, it's a great city and I really love central market, it has a great vibe. I have been to a few supermarkets, and found that they don't sell wine and beer, how come??
It's so green here, so many trees and parks what starts out as a miserable day tends to open up and the sun does shine. Don't get me started on the roads, they are huge.....
Overall, would I go back to the UK..... I don't think so, life seems to be much better already, so much to do and were always outside. Very different from our lives in the UK.
