we have net access at last!!!
well we are at last getting sorted!! lol....we have a home (west lakes) a car (a toyota, not sure which one!! lol), have started work () and the dogs are arriving from sydney in 1 week and 4 days!!
apologies to all that have replied to previous threads or who have sent p.m's but things have been a little mad with us!!, we have net access now so will be able to come on the site a little more.
thanks again for all the help etc that we have received on this site
love andy and angie (who have been in adelaide for 5 weeks now!!:D) xx
CONGRATULATIONS ON BEING BACK ONLINE!
It'll make you feel a little bit closer to everyone now.. and you can keep up with all the gossip again!!
How are you finding west lakes? We'll be there in 4 weeks!! And will be looking around West Lakes / Grange / Henley areas... But we don't have any kids and just want somewhere reasonable to live, with no hassel. Would be interested on your views on the area..
Not long till the dogs arrive and you'll be complete again! Sounds like you're settling in really well!!!
west lakes is a really nice area to come to, it's mainly full of oldies but there are also quite a few families about. we are 5 min in the car from a few beaches and the westfield shopping centre (oh yeah and the aami footie stadium where they play some odd game called aus rules football ! lol). there's no pubs close by but there is one or 2 near westfield, most people drink at home or on the beach.
we also looked at mawson lakes which is a newer version of west lakes but we liked the fact west lakes had already been developed and mawson lakes has a lot of apartments which obviously wouldn't be good for our dogs! lol
where do you plan to stop when you first arrive here? we stopped at the oaks embassy on north terrace in the city as we needed to get a lot done and the hotel is central to most things.
anything you need to know just ask on this site as we found it really helpful
angie and andy
As you get used to Adelaide you will find West lakes is a good location, specially when the temp rises and you can go the beach to have a walk in the cool breeze. It's very easy to get down south, "Tapleys hill road" in none rush hour, and easy to get up north.
we live no where near there,LOL
Welcome to the the Western Suburbs and Australia. You haven't found the pubs yet obviously!

Good luck hope all falls into place for you.
