well we received our visa less than 5 weeks ago. Things were manic in the UK trying to get everything sorted.My oh had to finnish up and close his business and ended up only having 1 day off between getting the visa and flying (he worked 7 day weeks).i had lost my grandad over the past couple of weeks and had a breast cancer scare making it hard to be excited about the move.With my oh at work this left me at home with the 3 kids,their goodbye parties,oh's books to complete in time for the tax man and everything to finnish and open etc for the move. I was still packing and transferring money 30 mins before leaving for the airport. By that time i was completely overwhelmed in floods of tears not knowing which way to turn.After all this was not the way i had planned things and it was important to me to spend our last day with family.It made me feel like we were literaly ripped out of one life and thrown into another.
We arrived in Adelaide on wed and hit the ground with our feet running.My oh was supposed to have 2 weeks off before starting work but infact started today,just 4days in. We have met with our agent,collected hire car,employer,bank,applied for tfn no's.Some of the areas we researched are right for us and others definately not.We have 2 weeks remaining in our holiday rental and still have to find a car and somewhere to live. Then theres medicare and schools to sort out. Luckily as its the school holidays here we don't have such a rush on that one.
Today at the rental with the kids and no car i'm feeling a little lost and worried about my oh as he is really not well today and the car didn't want to start this morning. Do i laugh it off or cry? Today is our 13th wedding anniversary!
Sorry i don't mean to rant i'm just an emotional wreck of a new arrival.Although we are all stressed we are sure this is the right place for our future. Give me a couple of weeks and hopefully i will have a fantasticly positive post on our new life.
Thanks for reading.x
