Not sure if I am putting this in the the right section....:-)
Anyway, we arrived in this lovely country one month tomorrow! Can't believe we have got this far.
I am sitting at my table, glass of Australian wine at my side, Xmas tree lights twinkling in the back ground, connected to a reasonably quick internet. Claire n tel's 'lend it' set in the kitchen cupboards.....Brilliant! Thank you guys!
We arrived on the 8th November, exhausted after a few mad hot humid sticky days in Singapore, jumped in a maxi taxi and headed south to Seaford House, Seaford Rise. I am so glad we managed to book Tyke's lovely property, especially as it's the beginning of the busy time of year. It was such a pleasure to stay there. Very airy, spacious, clean, and welcoming. We felt very much at home. Opening the blinds in the morning I could see the sea from our bedroom window, sunset on the horizon from the kitchen window. For someone who has been an inlander for the last 15 years, that was sheer heaven. My boys loved the house. So much so, my youngest burst in to tears when we were leaving. He wants to stay there again! Tyke has been awesome, can't thank him enough. We felt welcomed and relaxed.
Seaford Rise is very well positioned. There is a great shopping mall, not too far from the house (with an awesome butcher!) There is a new train line into the city. New air conditioned trains running frequently. We used the train several times before we got a car sorted. For anyone looking to move to Adelaide, it is the perfect place to start your journey or for a holiday.
Moana beach is close by, and is beautiful. We have spent quite alot of time, especially evenings beach side, kids in the sea or stuffing our faces with fish and chips from Barnacle Bills.
We have settled not too far from Seaford, in Port Noarlunga. We are still adjusting but this is only the beginning of our journey, so who knows where we sill end up but until then, this is home.x
