    What a stressful thing this emigration lark is eh? Well, we have been running about like blue-arsed flies and have managed to get a decent rental, bought two cars, new cell phones, home broadband and landline and a load of other stuff like getting my son to start school despite being jetlagged! :goofy: We even had a barbie at my boss's house, which was great.

     

    We're pretty knackered to say the least, but at least most of it is done. Our container only arrives in March, so we'll be roughing it a bit until then (those dreaded blow-up beds are a nightmare)

     

    As for Adelaide, it's definitely 'all good' except for the flies which seem to want to fly up your nose at 120km/h! :arghh:

    Can't wait to attend the first 'meet up' on here.

     

    Cheers all

    We're in Glenelg North, just off Tapley's Hill Rd. No relaxation as yet, I'm afraid, but I think we'll pop up to Hahndorf on Saturday.

    Good choice! Enjoy Hahndorf, it always seems really wierd to me hearing Oompah music coming out of the pubs there! Delicious strudels though....:D

    :biglaugh:i know where your comming from with the blow ups, we slept on ours for 9 weeks,(shipping delayed) didnt have a fridge and the weather got hotter, luckily our landlord had a fridge he just brought for his daughter, but she wasnt moving for a few weeks,so he let us borrow it. no chairs, blow up beds doubled up as our seats , apart from that sounds like your doing good , and things do get easier (then worse , then easier lol)

     

    good luck and enjoy xx
