After sooo much trouble selling our house in UK that is now a distant dream. We have spent 3 weeks in South Africa visiting family and have been in OZ now for 3. Most of it has been in a daze. Jet Lag, finding long term accomodation, schools, medicare etc.
Hubby went for interviews this week - one on Monday and one on Wednesday and got offered both jobs - so he is happy that all this TRA\ARTC and Licencing malarky wasn't for nothing.
We are 'camping' in our house (our furniture is only due to arrive in Adelaide around the 17th, so probably not in time for Christmas - that would be cool!). So the 4 of us will be having a Christmas picnic on our new bed in our otherwise empty house in Glenelg (- I lie.....we do have a Christmas tree).
Our youngest (16) is enrolled in Brighton High School for the new year. We are still waiting to hear from the Uni for our 19 year old. Having come here so late in the year it is a bit difficult for them to 'make friends' for the summer. Any of you out there with kiddults around that age that might like to take a couple of 'orphans' under their wing and show them around?
Otherwise we are still happy we made the move and looking forward to getting our own social network in place. I will be looking out for get-togethers and hope to meet some of you in the near future.
