I have decided to finally register to prevent my better half (ali@51) appearing to have a split personality.
After 16 months of planning, the day of my departure is almost upon us. I leave from Manchester on Friday for 5 weeks of hard graft on my own searching for employment, a car, permament housing, schools and a church. As we speak Ali is doing the fandango around the lounge at the prosepect of 5 weeks peace (not) on her own with 3 children and a Fiat Punto (the Kia Sedona having just sailed into the sunset to Scotland).
After all the goodbyes I am starting to feel the onset of mild hysteria - whether this is the effects of Newcastle winning 3 games in a row, the prospect of actually completing my enormous to do list or the sheer terror of what we are doing no-one (least myself) can actually tell!
I will endeavour to let everyone know my impressions of Adelaide once I get there however please be aware they will be those of a middle aged man with 3 kids allowed out on his own in a foreign country for 5 whole weeks !!!
