We're Homeless - What A Great Feeling!!

    I've not been on for what seems like ages, but life has been a bit hectic! We had the shippers in on the 13/14th December. I had a bit of a meltdown in the 24 hours before they arrived, no sleep and lots of panicking and stressing over it all but it felt like they packed up all my stress along with all our stuff! They did a great job, just got to keep everything crossed for when it all arrives in Oz now! It felt very weird being in the empty house though. Then on the 15th we became officially homeless and what a great feeling that was.

    I flew down with the kids and had Xmas with the inlaws, hubby stayed up north to finish work but will be flying down to join us on Tuesday so can't wait to see him. Once he gets here we can chill for a couple of weeks before we head down under. I think everything is sorted for when we arrive so I have nothing left to stress about for now lol, just can't wait to be there now and start our new life.

     

    Happy New Year!!

    Well done! Sounds like you're all sorted and can enjoy the last few days in the uk. I know what you mean....would love to have that 'homeless' feeling right now! Really want to get our house sold ASAP then it will all feel real!

     

    Good luck with the move and the start of your new adventure!

    We sold our house on 1/12/2011 and felt so glad but am waiting now for it to all go through, icant wait for the shippers to come and collect all out things then the house sale to be completed and move to my mums for about 8 weeks before we fly to our new adventure. Not sure how living with my mum will go. We have shipping with John Mason and may have our things go in storage for a month, it depends how quick our house goes through. Doe anyone know of it's expensive for the shipping to hod things in storage?

    Thanks Nic. We are heading down south, starting off in Willunga for first few weeks and looking to get a long term rental sorted somewhere around the Mclaren Vale/Willunga area.

    Good luck with it all Leeanne. It is such a good feeling when it is all finally sorted. I've been living with the inlaws for a fortnight now and that's always been about my limit lol, any longer and it does my head in so hoping the next 3 weeks pass really quickly as I can feel all the silly little things starting to niggle me now.

    Don't know about John Mason but I know our shippers offered free storage this end if we'd wanted it, think it was 4 weeks if I remember rightly so I'd give yours a ring and see what they say

    Hi Clare,

     

    We're also arriving in Adelaide 21 April 2012! Spending a couple of weeks in Melbourne with relatives before heading off down the Great Ocean Road with

    our two girls and dog in tow. Stopping at Apollo Bay, Port Fairy and Robe en route for 5 nights before arrival when real life kicks in. Luckily my husbands job comes with a house so we won't have that homeless feeling, shippers coming 28/29th March, couple of nights at my sisters then fly straight out. Luckily we sold our house years ago(!) but it's been a real stress waiting on the visa grant.

     

    Hope all goes well for you and good luck everyone on this mad adventure!

    How bizarre, you are doing almost the exact the same trip as us! My dad lives in the Morington Peninsular, so catching up with and friends in Melbourne. We are currently planning our Great Ocean Road trip. We will get the Sorrento ferry across to the Geelong side then plan to stop off in Port Fairy, possibly head up into Dunkeld then drop back down to the coast into SA, and do Robe etc! Its going to be a great trip. We plan to leave mid/late March and will stop off in Dubai and Singapore for a couple of nights, should get to Melbourne no later than end March.

     

    What age are your girls? We have no job to go to hope hope we will find employment reasonably quickly.

     

    Thanks for your wishes and good luck to you too!

    Hi Clare,

     

    Yes, doing the Sorrento ferry also as we're staying in Frankston south with a cousin before setting off. Also have another cousin in Berwick and an Aunt near Dandenong who we're looking forward to seeing. We have no jobs to go to as yet, have contacted a few companies who are not really interested unless you are there and ready to work so it is a bit of a worry. However what a fantastic experience in our lives. Our girls are 11 and 12 and really looking forward to it so hoping they settle quickly and buy into the Ozzie lifestyle. We're in Melbourne from 4th - 15th April, if you are around during those dates and fancy meeting up then pm us.

     

    Either way enjoy your trip!
