just thought I would borrow by cousins computer before we move into our rental as we won't have access to one until our internet is up and running and wanted to let you know the story so far........
we arrived on sunday 2nd March and so far have our rental house, bought a car, bought pretty much everything we need for in it too, OH has a job starting monday too
We went to Bunnings to buy the bbq and didn't realise how big it was and couldn't fit the box in the car no matter what we tried to do with it, I then burst out laughing and said I think we have been set up with this, there will be a video camera somewhere recording our many hilarious attempts at trying to get the bloody thing in the car, when..........
a lady came across the carpark, laughing hysterically and asking where we were heading and if she and her husband could be of any assistance, they then very kindly offered to take the bbq in the back of their jeep and take it too our door in hallett cove....... it turned out that the man was also a painter like my OH.
So if anybody has any doubts about the kindness of australians, don't fret any further, I have never experienced such kind and considerate people in a long time, even without the bbq incident!
Again the very best of luck to all who are still waiting, by the time you get your visa, we will be settled and will offer as much help as possible in the way it has been offered and done for us with other PIA members.
Speak to you all soon x
