Hi All, we are moving over to Adelaide in July on a permanent visa and I need some help and advice. It has been a long process to get to where we are at now with the whole visa process, researching and selling our house that I have actually made myself mental!! I feel so stressed at the moment and so anxious that I just cant think straight. It has been non-stop for over a year and we are now on countdown to moving I feel like I don't know where to start, I just feel dizzy!!
So first things first - We have booked a short term rental in Port Noarlunga but only for 4 weeks, so it doesn't give ourselves much time to look for a permanent rental. Is there anything that I can prepare from the UK to make the process of looking for a permanent rental easier and faster? What do agencies/landlords tend to want from us to secure a rental?
I have read a lot of posts about the employment in Adelaide and how bad it currently is. My partner is a carpenter and will need to secure a job asap, ideally before we come over, any advice on jobs in this trade? I also work in a High school as exam officer and also school trips co-ordinator.. I will look for anything though to get me some experience over there, preferably office work. Has anyone got any recruitment agency's I could email from the UK for advice?
Does anyone have a "to-do list" they could send me or give me any advice on what will help with anything once we move.
I also have a 6 year old daughter, has anyone got advice on when is best to contact schools to arrange a visit? Should I do this whilst im there or should I be doing this now?
I have recently been on a short flight to France and it was a tiny Flybe propeller plane, I got myself so worked up that I had a panic attack whilst I was on it, it was only an hours flight and It was awful and im now getting worked up about the flight to OZ!! (I have never had an issue with flying before). All this has come out of no where within the last two months, I have never had anxiety or panic attacks before, I do wonder if it is all the emotions and stress of the move, although I feel so excited and just want to get there now - has anyone else had anything similar whilst making the move?
