Anyone heading to Adelaide in January?

    Recommended Posts

    Guest northernstar200

    Hi there, me and my family are moving to adelaide on 18th jan, and was wondering if anyone who is heading out there around the same time, wants to meet up for a coffee.

     

    We are moving out there not knowing a sole, and would love to meet up with others in the same scarey boat as ourselves.

     

    Things have really started to worry me now like, worrying about every little detail about the move, worrying about schools, houses, and am thinking more and more about spiders and sharks!!

    Hi there, it is scary I know full well, but try to take one day at a time otherwise it overwhelms you, IF we get this house sorted, & one of us has a job offer of sorts, then we intend to go Jan/Feb, this would be great, still hot, but xmas & new year outta the way.

     

    Good Luck to ya

    Hi

     

    Like Mayjess we are to hoping to move Jan 10. IF (a very big IF) the house sells or my hubby secures a decent job offer we would love to go over then.

     

    I take it from your name (Nothernstar) you live up North? We live in the West Midlands.

     

    All the best with your move.

    Hi, thanks for your replies, yes we are from near Manchester and we fly out on 18th of January also, and the area that i like is port noarlunga!

     

     

    We have decided to rent our house out, as i don't think it is the best time for me to sell, so when the market improves we will sell up then, and buy a house in oz.

     

    You seem very arganised with your spread sheets, where i just have loads and loads of lists.

     

    All our house contents go in 5 weeks, so we will have our last christmas here, one without having our home comforts.

     

    Am so excited but still it is daunting.

    There are a lot of people who are on here who are moving hopefully in jan if visa or house is sorted, that sounds even more scarey to me.

     

    Fingers crossed on your visa really soon.

     

    We are resigned to the fact that our house isn't selling, so renting it out will have to do for now.

    Hi we are in the same boat as you, have applied for oaa, fingers crossed we get it, but it is nerve racking waiting, hope we do or it will be a made rush to find somewhere at such short notice.

     

    Good luck and hopefully see you all there.

    We are flying out on 14 Jan and arriving 16th, can't wait now really really excited but still seems so much to do! Our furniture goes on 30th Dec so we have one last Christmas here with our stuff around us. Looking forward to Christmas with the family before we head off to our new life. We are in Seaford Rise for the first 5 weeks while we get sorted and would love to meet up when the dust settles, looking forward to meeting new friends.

    Tracy,

     

    I met you on a poms in Adelaide meet in Bury earlier in the year.

    I take it your interview went well, you was due one at around 7am with the time difference etc.

    I have just started a job working for the ambulance service taking 000 calls. It's going great, we have settled in Mawson Lakes (north of the city). It's all worth it.

    Hello, i am really glad it is all working out well for you. That sounds like a really good job answering emergency calls, how exciting.

     

    I didn't hear anything from that interview but i have had one more recently on the oncology unit at Ashford Hospital, and as far as i am aware i have got the job just waiting for confirmation from the director of nursing there.

     

    Glad to know all this stress and worry is worth it, can't wait to just get there now.

    We are setting off on 6 January and will be having a couple of night in Hong Kong and will arrive in Adelaide on 10 January. We are staying with family in Myponga until we get a long-term rental sorted (hopefully in Seaford). Would love to meet up with others arriving in the New Year.

     

    Hope to meet you all down under!!

    We are having to cope without our furniture for longer than you, and am coming out in a sweat just thinking about it. Our furniture goes on 10th/11 December. That is the same night i go out on my owrks christmas do, non of my usual home comforts after that, i am sure we will manage.

     

    Good luck with your move, hopefully c u on the other side, when it will be aq lots nice than the weather is here at the moment.

    It's like christmas when your container arrives!. We was on a mattress on the floor for a while in the UK, also borrowed loads of kitchen stuff to get by. It all fits into place though, we are still opening box's.

    If you have enough to drink at your xmas do, perhaps you won't notice the lack of furniture at least for that night!! :biglaugh:I am really looking forward to the sunshine! It's that thought that keeps me going right now! Good luck with your move too!! See you in sunny Adelaide!!

    We too will be sleeping on a mattress over christmas, i am sure i won't be as bad as i think, like you said i'm sure our family will borrow us loads of stuff, otheriwse no one will get a christmas dinner!

     

    I cannot wait to just get over there now, sick of talking about it and planning it, just want to be relaxing at the other end.

    I'm the same about this orrible weather, everytime is windy or raining, i just keep thinking to myself, oh well its not for much longer.

     

    Thankyou for the luck about the move, i'm sure its a miricle i need if everything is going to go to plan.

     

    See you in Adelaide, oh it still seems funny saying it.

    Hi again.

     

    just a quick update, all our stuff got shipped yesterday the flat looks really bare. Even though we only shipped personal things we did ship pictures, TV, had some larger items so it feels real now. However we are not sleeping on a blow up bed so it's not that bad, and handed my notice in Monday:jiggy:

     

    Family are starting to get to that point where they don't want to mention it don't know what other people's are like? Especially my mum, crying all the time and won't talk about it and i know this christmas is going to be awful.

     

    Can't wait though, still waiting on the meet and greet and accomodation anyone heard anything yet if they have applied?

     

    Anyway would be gud to meet if people have time if not se you over there for a few beers
