Well what a rollercoaster 5 weeks! We arrived on 15th september, with $15000, 6 suitcases, no furniture / contents to follow us out and not knowing exactly where we were going to settle (although Victor Harbor was our internet research preference!).
After 5 weeks of not even having any time to fart , we have now settled in Goolwa. Have a nice house rental one street back from the beach, a car, a barber shop all set up kitted out and trading, daughter in school, dog arrived back to us safe and sound and met some lovely aussie and pommy friends.
Our house still isn't completely furnished, we still need to get a dining table and a bed for me and OH (have a mattress and making do), the kids beds are sorted though thats the main thing! We have made a very important purchase though (more important than our bed)- the BBQ All this done with about $2000 dollars to spare, money now coming in instead of just being dished out so hopefully we've managed to successfully make the move on a fairly tight budget!!
We may now get a chance to relax a little and start enjoying the aussie lifestyle! Bring it on! Sunday looks like a nice day weather wise, here's to a day without garage sales / shopping / working on barber shop etc etc and just being able to chill!!
