OK, about 3 weeks in now, and LOVING IT SO MUCH!
I know its a little bit false, as we are having a lovely lovely holiday, so not really living life down under as it were, but so love it over here, even with the terribly burnt back and the bank that will be shunned once we settle down (they mucked us around SO much it wasn't funny and cost us a few hundred dollars basically grrrr).
still waiting for Medicare cards, which is frustrating as we need those to get our driver's licenses (we are doing it in WA for long boring reasons), but generally things have been super simple to do (apart from the bank - grrrr again), even if at times you have to go from place to place - when you do have to do this though, they are all in one place and not miles and miles apart and pointlessly hard to do.
Love the people, the weather, the beaches, the sunsets, don't get why people have issues with bacon and/or snags, love all the different types we have tried, learning to run on Island Time as things work suuupppperrrr slow in WA in all ways it seems (restaurants, banks, shopping.....etc etc), but tis good as we have slowed down massively because of this and really relaxed loads, even if some things haven't gone as planned (did I mention the bank? lol).
Living in a camper type thing is different at this age, and certainly an adventure. Hopefully we will actually be able to start our trip for real in a couple of weeks and stop having to keep going back and forward to and from Perth.
Anyway, tipping my hat to all, and once we sort ourselves out fully will try and get back on here some more too :D
