After what felt like weeks of cleaning shoes and bike tyres with toothbrushes and then a stressful but efficient visit from the packers - we thought it was all going so well!
We didn't hear anything form the shipping company for a week so we finally contacted them only to find out that there arent any ships going to Adelaide for FIVE weeks and therefore our stuff would not be going for ages! I am gutted. I had planned it all so carefully so it would arrive a month after us when we had a long term let but it seems it is not to be. We will have to survive without any of our things with 2 young children. How rubbish is that?!!!
We, of course, checked out shipping times with the company and were told there were regular consignments going to Adelaide so it did not matter when they took our belongings.
They speak to us like they arent really bothered and of course it's too late to change companies as they have all our stuff! Grr.
On a positive note - we fly in 6 weeks and CAN'T wait to start our new lives in South Australia - albeit without any of our stuff!!!
