1Year on

    Well its been 1 year tomorrow since we landed.What a rollercoaster it has been.when we landed i would have gotten straight back on the plane, it was cold, windy and quite miseable.However 12 hours later and lot's of sleep it just seemed better.

    We moved to Seaford Rise and got a lovey brand new rental, 2 mins walk from the school and mall. I struggled to get a job but i ended up with a job in Coles at Old reynella in the deli.it was something i had never done before and i admit i hated it for the first 4 month's but it was money coming in.Now 7 months later i am trainee deli manager at Aldinga and was picked from 24 other people and i was the only 1 who got the traineeship.

    gary got a job with a builder and got paid every week and learned all about the different ways of tiling over here. He has recently gone self employed and thanks to a member on another forum he is now working for a large building company.

    The girl's, well Kia loved it from the start, Krista struggled but is at last enjoying her new life. They are both doing well at school and have an active social life.

    Friend's well what can i say, we have met some really great people and some not so great. You will know when you meet the right people for you. We have a good circle of friends and i could rely on all of them in a crisis.

    Thats all really apart from enjoy the journey, there will be up's and down's but it really is worth it in the end.
