    It's Friday night here (Manchester) now, and we leave for Adelaide on Tuesday! We're stopping off via Singapore for a few days but by this time next week we should be in our new home in ML :D I can't wait to see Australia (for the first time!)

     

    I'm excited and terrified all at the same time. We've had to ditch loads of stuff to keep our cases within the luggage allowance, but I heard from Pickfords today that our shipment should arrive about a fortnight after we do, so at least we'll get some things back then that we haven't seen for a while!

     

    Anyone else on here arriving in October? :D

     

    Also, bit random, does anyone know of any embroidery shops or classes in North Adelaide please?! Not top of my proirity list for when we first arrive in SA, but I'd love to join a local group or similar :D

    Hi everyone and thanks for your best wishes! Well, our last night in the UK is finally here - we're both very nervous now. Be nice to just wake up and be there without the journey bit inbetween!

    We're flying Manchester to Frankfurt, then Frankfurt to Singapore with a two night layover in Singapore, so I guess we won't cross over, which is a real shame. I would have loved to have had some company en-route from fellow soon to be ex-pats! :) Where abouts in Adelaide are you headed too? Have a safe journey and all the best :)

    Hi

    We are staying in Salisbury East with friends until we can find a place to buy, hopefully before our container arrives in about 9 weeks.

    Our son lives in Kurralta Park with his partner and our grandson.

    If you have not been to singapore before its a great place to chill out and relax before you final flight.

     

    Best wishes
