Well that's the first two weeks over - can't believe how fast it has flown by, it only feels like yesterday since we landed. Having said that, I also can't believe how much we have done in that time, from finding a long term rental, enrolling kids in schools, buying a car, finding a footie club for our eldest and all the other mundane things like tax, insurance, etc., I should be knackered by now!! Can't wait to start work on the 27th and have a rest! lol
Having said all that, it's great to be here even if the sun isn't shining so much. We've made some new friends and had a lovely Sunday lunch with friends we met on our reccie - thanks Flossybeth and family x It was also great this morning watching the bairn trying to surf (although there was hardly a wave to be seen - he's keen!) it made a change from the UK routine of prising him off a playstation!
Hope the next two weeks go as well and we continue to settle in. Thanks for all the help and advice to everyone on PIA as it has definitely made our move smoother.
One more thing - why are car parks so dark?? Totally lost the car tonight at Colonnades and spent ages walking around switching my key fob off and on hoping that my car was close enough to respond! Thankfully it was and I rescued it when it flashed it's lights at me across a very crowded car park!! Never felt so thankful to see it as I didn't even know a taxi number if it came to the worst and I didn't find it and didn't fancy the walk home! lol Oh the joys of new cars in new car parks!
