Firstly I need to apologise profusely for not coming onto Poms In Adelaide for nearly 4 months! The only excuses I have are a) it's not as easy to get the internet in your home as you think therefore you have to prioritise internet access to sneaking snippets of communication with family and close friends only! and b) I started work full time in the New Year and therefore don't get to the library anymore.
Our internet problem was solved 2 weeks ago when we moved into our first Australian owned home and Telstra deemed us worthy of an internet connection - heaven. I feel connected again.
In 6 months, we have got car, house, job, fab school for kids, cricket team, footie and soccer teams and absolutely love it here. We have settled in Seaford Rise, within 5 mins walk of our friends who emigrated here 6 months before us and 30 mins away from our other friends in Aberfoyle Park who emigrated 18 months before us.
I don't miss family and friends quite as much as I expected to but that's thanks to regular phone and letter contact plus the occasional sneaky internet skype call from friends houses etc. and it's only 6 months.
I'm really looking forward to reading all the posts and conversations on here again and hopefully helping people with information as much as we got help on here right up to us coming in October 08.
Won't make the post too long for now, it's good to be back
