i used to love these when i was back in soggy stalybridge so here goes. Arrived last friday morning to blue skies and sunshine. The last two weeks in the uk were horrendous, i have never cried so much, it was the hardest thing i have ever had to do saying goodbye to everyone at various do's its awful, dont let anyone tell you otherwise. Bit of a panic the night before because we were over our weight allowance, we'd already sent three boxes over so everything had to go in the cases or not come. As it was, the girl at SIA check in must have taken pity on me (i was crying again at this point) as we were about 15kg over and she didnt charge us.
Picked up the hire car and with the boys buried under luggage set off for Roo rentals Lorikeet in Hallett Cove (lovely place, thanks Judi) even being cross eyed with exhaustion it felt so right being here.
Saturday and Sunday flew by in a haze of jet lag and finding our feet, driving round to make sure we definitely wanted Seaford area.
Monday had to go to the city to pick up bank cards etc then looked at a couple of cars, applied for tax file nos.
tuesday - went to see a primary school, went to a house open - quite bizarre and sorted driving licences, bought a car
wednesday - went to another house open, and another primary school picked up new car, celebrated sams 40th, got the second house.
Thursday - went to third primary school then the beach while sam went for a couple of interviews.
~Friday - took back rental car, went to beach- need to chill for a few days now.
Love the place already.. no question.
lots of people were quite doubtful we'd get a rental in seaford area apparently its really popular but i took the advice on here and included a hand written letter say how we were a professional couple, very particular (not) will look after the house as though its mine etc etc and offering 4 months rent in advance. Even both of us being unemployed that seemed to swing it so we were really lucky.
Knackered now, need to chill for a few days, going to explore the various beaches for the easter weekend. Theres no doubt i'm going to like it here, cant wait to move into the rental at the end of this month, i can finally settle down a bit then, we've been like gypsies since november.
