just a very short introduction about us;
I'm originally from Plymouth, Devon and Donna is from Ballymena, Northern Ireland. Yet, for the time being, we're living in Leeds, West Yorkshire.
I visited Adelaide for six weeks way back in 1988 and fell in love with the whole lifestyle back then. Donna and I are both flexible in our approach to life, in terms that we realised long ago that home is where the family is most happy and with no particular ties to anywhere we want to lay roots somewhere new.
With all that in mind, and having family already in Adelaide, it seems to fit positively with how we wish to live our lives. However, we are realists, and know that you dont get things handed to you on a plate, and if you want something, then you have to work for it.
Sites like this are great for people like me, who tend to be highly anal when it comes to organisation and planning (to the chagrin of Donna). I've already taught my kids the values of the 7 P's (Prior Planning and Proper Preparation Prevents Poor Performance).
However, one of the problems I have encountered is that there doesnt seem to be anything which says Step 1, Step 2 etc. And knowing where to start is proving to be a bit of a mind field lol.
Hopefully will find what I need to get started within these threads, however if anyone can point me in the right direction, that would ACE!
And thats just about it for us for now.
PS. I also realise that despite being highly anal and organised it should read "West Yorkshire-South Australia" Doh!
