Hi we arrived in adelaide just over a week ago and thought we would let people know how we are getting on. It is currently winter here and is very cold, seen rain the majority of our days here, however it has had a couple of nice days with the sun shining but really cold on a night and gets dark very early. Other than the weather we have achieved a lot, we set up Medicare, bought a car and sorted out our driving license. We are currently staying in Christies beach in a short term rental, we had a drive around areas and we really liked the look of hallet cove, however we couldn't find many rentals in that area so we viewed two properties in seaford which we also liked the look of. We put in an application for one of the rentals and it was accepted- we get the keys next weekend :-)
My partner had one job interview and got the job, he is a carpenter, he starts on Monday. (not sure if it was luck but it only took him one week to find a job), me on the other hand hasnt found work yet, I've applied for two jobs but not heard anything as of yet, I'm looking for office work. We are still looking at some schools for my 6 year old, I haven't found the right one yet. Other than that things seem to be going well for us.
Either of us have never been to Adelaide before.. I will be honest about our first impressions (Bare in mind we have arrived in winter).. We find it it quite old fashioned, I do feel like I have gone back in time slightly but in a way I kind of like it. It is hard to say if Adelaide is for us yet.. I Feel summer time will be good here but to be honest winter is not that good, but much better than our UK winter, we spent the day in the park the other day and it was beautiful. . It is a huge change for us and we are taking one day at a time, it's early days yet but we have been successful in what we have done so far and I have a feeling things can only get better... Excited to see what awaits us over the next few months x x
