Just a quick progress report
We are begining to really settle into aussie life now. We are renting in Glenelg and are really enjoying being close to the beach and not to far from the City. Everyday I just can't believe we are here as we are from the Midlands and only saw the beach when we went on holiday now I see it everyday. Glenelg is a nice spot to start especially if you don't have a car as public transport is good and everything you could possibly need is on your doorstep although it would to expensive for us to stay here long term (better buy the lotto tickets ha ha).
I have started work at the Royal Adelaide Hospital and I was really pleased as I only have 4 patients to look after and I am used 14 or sometimes 27. Everyone at work has been so friendly and supportive, however I was shocked at some of the equipment and practices which are years out of date but on the whole my work life is much less stressful and I think I will be very happy at the RAH. Liz has had some work with select education but she would love to find a more permanent posistion.
Our social life has been really good since we arrived due in large to this site. We have made some really good friends and had some good times. We hope to meet lots more people in the future weeks.
I have to admit I am not homesick yet but I am sure it will come especially in August when the footie season starts ha ha. Liz is finding it difficult but I think this is in part due to her not working full time yet. I am sure we will continue to enjoy our time here and hope we can be of assistance to anyone going through the process.
