We've been here for 5 weeks now and I don't feel like I've had chance to take a breath! Presently I'm in Sydney... again, and work has taken me around the country somewhat, but it's all good (Like having a driver turn up in a stretch limo to take me to the airport!) Truthfully, I've not had time to be homesick/peoplesick or otherwise miss anything. I don't know if that will change. OH has only just started looking for work and commented on Saturday that he still feels like he's on holiday !
Our achievements to date are:
Job for me before departure... via video link at 7.30am!
Secured rental in Noarlunga Downs that takes the dog!
Retrieved dog from Quarantine in Sydney (boys drove there!)
Bought essentials for house as container still hasn't arrived!
Sampled some wines in McClaren Vale!
Been to the Hills ... Hahndorf, Lobenthal, Stirling, Aldgate
applied for lots of jobs for OH
Looked at some show homes and have def. decided to go for a 2 storey option....
We are currently riding the exchange rate roller coaster..... I still haven't changed it... waiting for the next interest rate cut here.... it will mean that GBP will be worth more again (I hope that this is going to go our way... but as everyone knows, waiting for the rate to go up is nerve racking to say the least!)
One thing is for sure, I'm racking up the frequent flyer miles and thinking about our next holiday and it's not to the UK!
We are lucky, I know and we have people on here to thank for a lot....
YOu know who you are!!
