As promised I am here to give my one month update and im afraid its not terribly exciting as I have posted before I've been really sick with kidney infection and flu which I am now coming out of the tail end of. This hot-cold-hot-cold weather doesnt help I think.
I have done all the boring things like got medicare, got a driving license, applied for a tax file number etc and as soon as the TFN number comes through I should be all set up with everything I need. I was really hoping to not have to hang around for ages broke at home with no money and nothing to do, on account of not having much money so I looked for jobs before I got here. Had to turn one interview down due to being very unwell with the flu. Got offered work from the first interview but they are having to apply for funding to get the post and it is taking ages so im beginning to get very bored and frustrated.
I really wish that I could be more positive about things. Its not that I hate here by any stretch of the imagination, I actually happen to think the public transport is pretty good despite the apparent timetable changes and stuff on the news I have gotten train and buses and not been affected. I am having to be dependent on Mr Loopy financially till I get a job and its not really my style, much too independent for that so thats not a good thing atm. I know things will change though and summer is around the corner, I will get a job and ergo get money. I can then buy a car and be more independent( having had a nice shiney 04 corsa bought from nearly new to not having any car at all and not being able to afford one is quite an adjustment). Mr Loopys sister is going to have a baby soon(she is due in about 3 weeks so it could be any day now) which Im sure will be a good time for the family and then we have xmas, new years, my birthday, mr loopys birthday and valentines day. Patience unfortunately is not one of my strong suits and it takes along time to set up a new life, I think I knew this already but was under some veil of illusion that because I had lived here as a child it would be much easier and the fact its basically like starting from new has been hard for me.
Sorry to be negative there are lots of positive in there, like being able to enjoy the beach on those sunny days, catching up with my old school friends- even went into the city for boost juice with a friend from primary school who I had contacted through facebook a while ago.
Trying to keep it real with how things are going, sure when I do a three month update I will be settled into a job and loving the warmer weather and it will be all good
