We have been here for 10 days now, and in our rented house in Hallett Cove for a week. House is a bit bare as waiting for our furniture, three weeks to go, but in the last week have been able to buy kitchen appliances, beds, a car, all really easily and have received excellent service from all the stores we have dealt with. In fact everyone we have spoken to so far have been really friendly and welcoming, even the check-out girls at Foodland chat to you, it's such a refreshing change from the UK.
We even tried the trains today, as I am starting at TAFE on Thursday. Even that was easy, got the 8.00am express, took less than 30 mins, and the walk to the college was just over 5 mins.
Haven't missed the UK yet, especially as the weather there is still rainy, and we love it that everyone here is excited about getting rain! Mind you we are looking forward to the weather getting warmer.
The hard work starts now though with my course beginning and Nick having to find work, but so far, we love the area where we are, being so close to the ocean and, as for the drive-thru off-licences, what more could you want..!!
Hoping to meet up with a few of you in the near future.
Nick, Jo and Lucy (9)
