Hello hello helloooooo, well as it says on the tin we have been here 2 years today:)
we didn't have a house to sell before we came so we saved like the clappers and came with a modest amount of savings that soon got eaten up, we have brought dud cars, met some nasty people, been conned, been treated like immigrants (well we are!!) and had some really dodgy and rough times, be we had no choice we had to make it work and we bloody well did, and never once through our crappest times we have wanted to go back, cuz on the flip side, we have met some great people, got some good friends, finally (for the old chap) got decent work, got the kids settled, got a house we could never have got in the uk, got a crazy Kelpie X that needs serious training, got pregnant !!(due in a few weeks!!) got to see some amazing wildlife and beaches and hills aaaannnd mountains and got to see the kids perform on stage in various theatres and at the Adelaide Entertainment centre....PHEW!!! we have a great life here, sure we will never be rolling in riches, we never were and that is not the reason we came, we came cuz we wanted to achieve the impossible (well it looked that way 4 years ago when we started!!) we wanted to show our kids that no matter how out of reach things seems with bloody hard work determination and a positive attitude nothing is impossible and if your nearest and dearest don't support you then keep going anyway do it for yourself and for the future...never give up.
so please raise your glass to us (as i can't at the moment) heres to many more great years for us!!:):)
