We are a family of 3 + 1 dog, planning to move to Adelaide beginning of 2013, which I am finding very scary!!
Have been reading some of the posts on this site, and everyone seems very helpful and full of information, so I'm hoping to pick some-ones brains if I can.
Areas to live in Adelaide that we have liked the look of so far include Reynella East and Glenelg. We have based these choice on proximity to the CBD and the coast. Also we have to take into account our 5 year old daughter, so really need to be in a family friendly area. Does anyone know if the primary schools are of good reputation in these areas? and if not, which are the best areas for primary schools? We will be unable to live in the most expensive areas, so middle of the road is what we're looking at.
Also, I am a support worker, currently supporting homeless women with children, and my husband is a head chef who now runs his own bakery shop. Major concerns over being able to find employment once we get to Adelaide as you can imagine. As I have already read on some of these posts, my husband has contacted Chef agencies over the internet, but of course, no reply, which is understandable.
I am worried about taking my daughter away from her school and all her friends, even though she is very confident and outward going. I am also worried about the financial costs involved. Having to start again when your in your forties is a big risk, especially with the possibility of never getting back to the financial position we are in now. It's a tough one, any words of wisdom would be gratefully appreciated.
Thanks for reading.
