Anyway good luck and taek your time making decisions ! Thats my advice xx
Hi Dave & Family,
Sorry to hear that your start here in Adelaide was not a good one and hope you have settled now.
We had OOA in Golden Grove when we got here and couldn't fault it to be honest and luckily the neighbors were really kind.
Hope the rest of your new lives here lives up to your expectations and we wish you good luck for the future. Keep on posting.
Keep up the story dude. If that all happened in the first 10 hours I am waiting with baited breath to hear what has happened since.
Clare, I should think you have enough material for your first book. ;) The only thing is no one would ever believe all that could happen to someone in real life.
sorry to finish the update where i did but this is just to let you know that the person who claimed the neighbour was a threat, was a nutter. please do not be alarmed if you live in Seacliff. Apologies and will explain fully in later update. Just to repeat, the person who said this to us was making it up.
Wow what a start to your life in Adelaide Dave but welcome having only been here for 4 months ourselves we have had a very eventful start but luckily it hasn't put us off in the slightest we love it here & the kids are settled & enjoying more freedom keep us updated on your progress best of luck to you & your family settling in:D
Glald to hear you got things sorted out - Paradise is just up the road to us so if you need to know where to find anything, or need to ask anything, feel free! Hoping to have another girlie get together over this way in March as well so if your wife wants to met some other locals, keep an eye out and I'll try and remember to post it up on the Social Section. There has been talk of maybe organising a get together at Morialta Reserve (well worth visiting if you haven't already done so, about ten minutes from you, and almost guaranteed spot to see koalas in the wild!) for this coming weekend, so drop me a PM if you might like to come along and if it goes ahead we'll send you the details.

Well my reaction was right over the top!!! Typical, gullible me. Oh well, good news that she was a nutter then, I guess Seacliff is full of them! C x

since the first update.....
got the Oaa in Paradise and it was ACE! the people at at OAA were fantastic. I know some people dropped for some right s***holes but we were pleased. Stayed in Paradise for 6 weeks and then moved into rental in Netley. Started work on 2/2/09 and have a good job with nice people. Still feel like a fish out of water at times but its really excitin'. Young lads in school and adapted really well. Is now at his second school since landing but is enjoying himself. Little girl really needs to be in kindy but is too young yet. Mrs has coped really well (done miracles, really) and will hopefully have a job sorted in the next 6 weeks. To anybody comin over, it really is lovely. The homesickness hurts, but for me, the possibilities for the kids is managing to outweigh it for the moment. I havent made any pals yet, but went to a meet-up organised by SCOOTERDAN last month (thanks) and really enjoyed it. My missus is startin to make pals and managing the house, kids and me with ease! Thought I would try to catch a fish for tea tonight but failed in spectacular fashion. (never fished before!) If anyone fancies a beer, teaching me how to fish, or even better, a Kickabout,please let me know! Well, theres our boring update. I know we may be still in a "honeymoon" period, but I just love it. Its Ace!
