As you can see from the title I've finally made it. Some of you are already aware but thought I'd better sit down and do a proper arrival thread.
From the moment i stepped out of the airport it felt great, when the heat hits you (after coming from freezing cold) it really makes you think you've done the right thing.
Don't get me wrong i know its not going to be easy, I've been here since Saturday i have already had things that have p***** me off, but that was nothing do with this country just cock ups from people back in the U.K (what a surprise).
Everyone is so friendly and have already had a day out at the beach on Sunday with Cara and family and Lisa and family. It was a great day and really does put things into perspective,this is the life i want to have for myself and Alicia and I'm sure once everything is sorted out we will be able to enjoy Adelaide to it's full extent without stressing about what needs to be done next. Not only have i had the great day out but for some reason woke up Monday morning slightly dehydrated and that wasn't from the sun (Thanks Cara it was a good night).
Alicia seems to really like it, although obviously missing her dad/family and other people but i think she will settle in well. Once she starts a school she will meet so many people although she has already found a great friend in Erin (Cara's daughter). They are having there first sleepover tonight so wish me luck lol.
Thanks again for everyones support over the last year, it's great to finally have made it and to everyone i need to get in touch with i will as soon as I'm a bit more sorted. It really makes a difference having people here you know you can turn to.
To everyone coming soon or even just starting the process good luck, it's well worth it.
Glad you got there safely and are already enjoying the sun!
Hi Emma, your welcome on the dehydration, good nite had... Hope Erin is behaving hersef, didn't expect a sleep over so soon.
see you in the morn
Good to hear you are there safe and sound :)
Good to see you having such a happy cheery outlook. Do you know where you will be settling?
Hi Emma & Alicia,
Glad to hear that you arrived safely. Good luck & look forward to seeing you in September.
Wishing you both good luck with your future here, you will settle in no time.
At long last!!! LOL. Glad you seem to be settling and that your immediate reaction is that yes, you have done the right thing! The sun can make a big difference can't it? Everything seems a little bit better when it's sunny and warm.
Well this time in two weeks, we will be on the final leg of our journey, on the flight from Singapore to Adelaide. We will touch down on Tuesday 3 March at 9.10am. Hope to see you all shortly after that!
