Hi all, just a quick post to say "hi" after having signed up Signed up to Poms in Oz last week, and then discovered you guys over here so thought I should sign up as Adelaide looks to be topping our list of places to settle at the moment.
So, by way of an intro... I'm Tony, work as a creative director (ponsy title that I hate, lol) in the web industry, live for my sportsbike and twisty roads. I'm married to Lou, who's a nurse, and our daughter Daisie, who at the age of 12 still insists that she's too young to quit school and finance her own life ;)
The idea of a move to Oz is a new one on me... having spent the last few years planning a move to NZ, it seems my wife and daughter have changed their minds in favour of Oz's better weather for one thing, and the hope of better high street shopping for another... sigh. I'm still confused about the whole thing and having settled on Christchurch being our next expected place to live, I now find us facing the prospect of starting the process all over.
Interesting to see the Adelaide is actually Christchurch's sister city.
Looking forward to getting to know some of you guys, reading more about the Adelaide area and South Oz in general, finding out which suburbs we should be looking at as city living doesn't appeal at all. We currently live about 20 minutes from Leeds in a lovely little village surrounded by fields, and looking for a similar amount of space - would much prefer to extend the commute than to live in a city. Also looking to find info on here about schooling in the area.
Better get back to work I suppose,
