      We are 5 weeks till we fly and are enjoying a bit of respite before the fun starts.

      Our container should have left Southampton today so we're living out of suitcases for two months till our stuff arrives.

      Also heading to Noarlunga and also in one of Tamara's rentals.

      I think things here will start becoming a bit more emotional with family once we reach the two week mark.

      Best of luck for the remainder of your journey.

      Hi, it looks like a few of us arriving soon.

      We are looking at arriving just before your dates!!!

      You are more organised than us, our shipping container is not coming until next week. Then we too are living out of suitcases, but I am sure it will all be worth it in the end. We are moving to our rental in Moana, and at the minute I am just thinking of the lovely beach and views. I also love the hills and cannot wait to explore and get to know the area better.

      Best wishes and good luck with your move.

      Sue

      RE the shoes - I just used a cheap bleach type spray, I was told to use Jeyes fluid but as long as it smelt bleachy I figured it would be ok, I sat outside for yonks scrubbing all our stuff, outside items etc, it took forever I wonder if they ever really checked anything that well, we got rid of our hoover as I was paranoid they would take it anyway, even our lawn mower in case there were problems as it was petrol, I cleaned hubbys whipper snipper till you could eat your dinner off it

      Thanks so much for that clever tip!! And yes I know we will get there, very stressful at the moment but I could not have done it without all the help and support from people on Poms In Adelaide!!! So thanks to everyone who has answered any of my queries or just sent their wishes and supported me, nearly at the end of our journey in the UK and new life starts in Oz soon!!!

      Just 1 more question though what is the best way of cleaning all shoes we are planning on shipping over etc??

      just a quick one..... We have our beloved 4 legged boy currently doing time in Spotswood...

They pick him up from Spotswood, take him to airport and book him in for a 1hr flight (better than 8hr + drive) where we will be waiting for his arrival at Adelaide airport. So far so good! Good luck with everything. ShazlouD p.s they will pick them up and drop them at your address if required
      Wow thats a good price I was quoted 442 so we thought we would drive over and also see abit of Melbourne on the way too! but will talk to hubby to see what he thinks! May come back to your for more information!

      thanks again Bal

      Thanks Sue,

      TBH I think that as our dates move closer we'll start to turn our focus away from the UK and our life here, towards our new life in Australia. At the moment it's alot of faffing around with shutting things down, selling things and generally shutting down our lives here. Sad but also exciting.

      Cool We used a stiff scrubbing brush and soapy water, I think

      [QUOTE=Bal67;290184]


      .....what is the best way of cleaning all shoes we are planning on shipping over etc??


      Hi Bal:

      I seem to recall cleaning all footwear by giving the soles a good brushing with a dry stiff scrubbing brush to remove all compacted mud/soil etc, after which we scrubbed thoroughly with warm soapy water and stiff brush (and sharp stick thing to get rid of small stones etc in deep-tread trainers), and then left upside down to dry. A damp wipe-over should be sufficient for uppers. And then wrap shoes in clean plastic bags individually, to keep them all separate. Maybe a bit of overkill, but better to be safe than sorry, I reckon.

      All this prep-work is all part of the Big Adventure, so don't think of it as a chore!! Have fun, Bal!
