It is the wierdest (and greatest) feeling when you are back in control of things. We booked our flights within 40 mins of getting visas and I'm glad we did. Now we've got an actual date everything else is falling into place. We're visiting Perth as a holiday for 2 weeks on the way then staying with friends in Adelaide for the first few weeks while we try and find schools and rental. It's so hard to choose schools and rental property from here so we've made short term arrangements.
We're renting our house out and have tennants sorted (as of yesterday) and I've begun to sort out my 3 jobs in preparation for handover. It feels real now and the only bit I'm worried about is the goodbyes!!
When you least expect it the result you've been dreaming about will arrive.
