    Hi All a quick update

     

    After both of us getting PR Lisa was pregnant so we decided to have baby in UK before coming out, well baby Lola has arrived (11)weeks, house sold for full asking price, I have got job in The Repatriation Hospital and am arriving on the 22nd may to start work on the 7th June. Lisa and Lola are following as soon as baby visa is issued (hopefully by July). I am staying in Port Noarlunga for a week then have a short term rental in Marion, thanks to thedelaneys on here. So anyone fancy a beer i will be more than happy to catch up with anyone, as it looks like i will have a month or 2 on my tod lol...hope to speak soon..

    Alright Darren, small world mate. We are renting in Port Noarlunga! Am more than happy to show you around, go to pub etc. I'm sure Jason (niknjas from Swindon) could join us as they are in Christies Beach. What has made us all arrive within walking distance? Must be the beach and the fishing! Weird.

    Are you saying I'm a lightweight Tyke? :)

     

    I take it I've already developed a reputation here, same as in the UK! I fell asleep in a nightclub once, I was only 23 too!

     

    Hopefully you mean mydearboy will have jetlag..........

    Well guys its been about 9 weeks since i got here and wanted you all to share in my happy news, my baby 20 weeks old has now been granted her child visa and her and my wife can finaly join me getting here 12th august :jiggy:It has been a very emotionaly draining few months and was begining to think was it worth it but hey!!!!

     

    I have been working at the Repat for 4 weeks and love my job very profesional team and great people....i was in prot noarlunga for first 2 weeks then moved into a rental in mitchell park. It is a great area a great house somewhere i never would have looked at before, it has everything a rail link to city 15 mins drive to city 15 mins beach 10 mins (Glenelg/Brighton) all south beaches and mclaren vale on doorstep fantastic location :)

     

    Settled in quickly i think although strange to live a single life again after 12 years lol, now i need to clean house and make sure i recycle the beer and wine bottles ;)

     

    Not met many people yet, bit hard when ya on your own so would still love to meet up with peeps if anything happening
