    Guest The Morleys

    Can't believe it's finally happening! We Fly from Manchester on Wednesday and arrive in Adelaide on Friday Morning...

     

    We are all really excited now, but it feels like dream, doesn't feel real at all.

     

    Can't wait to feel the sun on my back and the sand between my toes

     

    See you all soon

    We've been here just over a year and it still doesn't seem real! Enjoy leaving the UK and enjoy the flights these things will make your memories, so make them happy! Look forward to arriving here and starting a new life, it will take time but be patient and again enjoy it. Also try and get a group of friends from here, it really does help. Then other friends will be made through work and schools etc.

    Enjoy it. But pace yourself, you think there was paperwork to do in the UK?? Welcome to Australia!! Take your time, hit the beach and put your feet up for a bit!

    Ninamorley,

     

    You could put the area you are going to be stopping in first.

     

    This would allow people near you to get in contact so that you will have some support to ask all those awkward questions to.

     

    Hope you have a safe and enjoyable flights over!

     

    Ps feel free to contact us if you need any help.

     

    We have only been here 7 weeks, So we are still going through the paper chase.

    Don't make any big decisions in your first week / 10 days, your head will not be in the best of places.

    Get the city stuff done, then go exploring and enojoy.

    Join the local library for internet access and local info.

     

    Have a great flight, and bring the t shirts it's going to be warm.

    The next few days will be a rollercoaster ride for you as you say your last goodbyes! I know that we could have backed out and stayed in Sunny Donny at any number of times in those last few weeks. Take it slowly when you arrive and expect that rollercoaster ride to continue for a time when you reach the other side, it exhausting both mentally and physically but all worthwhile. I will pm you my mobile number - get in touch if you need anything - where are you staying?? Just realised that you are a nurse so are my hubby and I - do you have a job lined up yet??? Is your profile picture Sandal Park??

     

    Have a safe flight - Enjoy the ride!

    Enjoy your last few days and savour them dearly.

    I agree with everyone that you should prepare to be dazzled when you get here, not only with the stark contrast in the weather (it knocked us for 10 this time last year!!) but in that there is so much to do and sort out!

    We have a spare kettle and plates etc if you need to borrow them when you arrive, we're down in Aldinga Beach if youre coming south.

    pm me and we can swap details.

    All the very best and safe journey

    I kinda disagree with others when it come to taking it easy when you first arrive.

    I would get straight out there and get the rental, phones and all the other stuff sorted straight away.

    Within 3 hours of getting off the plane we were out looking at area's and viewing houses.

    We managed to get the rental, phones, tfn, work start dates sorted in 2 days and the new furniture delivered and licence's changed during the week.

    Though research and lots of it we already knew what area's we would want to live and how far the commute would be into work plus had to think about the dogs and walking off leash area's.

    The paperwork aint that bad or confusing, just a pain sometimes.

    So you can either procrastinate about things and put them off or get out there and get them done asap and have more time to enjoy your new life here.

    Not saying this is how things should be done, just my opinion and what worked best woth the least amount of hassle for us.

    Agree with Matt here. We got as much done as possible when we arrived. It's just better to get it all out of the way so that you can quickly settle and enjoy your new life.

     

    Good luck with the journey and a warm welcome to your new lives.

    I agree with the get things in motion asap...

     

    My work licence for example took two weeks to meet the bloke at TAFE.

     

    It then took four weeks to get a letter from him..

     

    It then took OCBA six weeks to process my licence and send it to me.

     

    So it takes about ten weeks before i could work!

     

    This is only one example, of how long some things can take.

     

    Think about..

     

    Tax file number

    Work licence

    Child benefit (family tax benefit)

    Ambulance cover

    House to rent

    Bank account

    Medi care

    Driving licence

    Car seats (children)

    Job search

    Pension transfer

    Inform container company of new address.

     

    If there are anymore i will add them as we go along.

     

    Come on there must be some i have forgotten Rob
