OK, Wednesday 5th and two weeks now completed……..
Not much is happening over here for us this last week. We went hammer and tongs last week and seem to have come to a stand still now. We have done all the things that we had to do and now it just leaves a house and a job to find.
Martin had another interview Monday it lasted just over an hour. Not that confident on the outcome, just didn’t get the right vibes. Will probably find out by the weekend.
Straight after the interview we went to look at a house but the agent never turned up! We waited 15 minutes and then moved on to the next house but as we were late for that one the agent had already left! We have three to look at on Thursday but unfortunately the appointments are at the same time and we like them all! Being ˝ hour apart we can’t keep all appointments! (One has a pool with Ocean views and the others nearer to the city) Luckily Martin’s cousin is going to view one on our behalf.
This morning we have woken to yet another glorious day with wall to wall sunshine. The weather has been a little funny since we arrived. We have had rain and wind and some days have been a bit overcast in the morning which clears in the afternoon. On Sunday morning we were woke by a real heavy storm with thunder thrown in for good measure! But the ground was dry again within half an hour! One day it rained a little but the spots dried before they hit the floor, really strange.
Wednesday we bought a small TV as sitting here every night looking at each other isn’t that entertaining (ha ha) Oh yeah, you don’t need a TV licence over here!
We were also hopefully getting a “Dongle” (mobile wireless internet connection). Currently with the service provider “3” you can have the Dongle for free but you enter a 24 month contract for it which ranges from $15 - $39 per month. You can also buy the thingy outright for $129 and then sign up for the contract but you have the privilege of coming out of the contract without penalty. If you do, you then have to pay a reconnection charge later on.
But! We had a tip off from the girl in the shop that it will be launched on a pay as you go scheme end of next week. Buy it outright and just top it up when and if you want to with no contract.
We have been out with Kev and Mall (Swampo) a couple of times for LEMONADE and have had enjoyable nights on each occasion. But a Pint of West End has gone up today so we will sit any cry into our glasses this Friday!!
