    Recommended Posts

    Well actuall got here yesterday but all so tired :SLEEP:

     

    Flight with singapore airlines was great but not much sleep with 2 young girls really excited. Got through customs quite quickly and my pre ordered taxi (come crusin) was waiting for us when we arrived. Staying at Seaford rise (Tykes place) which is lovely and met Chris o`Brien who met us with the keys. Went to kmart and brought a couple of aussie approved car seats and Mick from MD autos dropped the car around later. All done in a bit of a blur though as so tired.

     

    Having a day of paperwork today as going to sort out bank cards, driving licences, medicare, Centrelink, Phones (iphone not working even though unlocked), pre pay dongle, ect.

     

    Will PM those of you that have sent me messages later as want to get an early start. Also have to keep an eye out for a car and a long term rental and most important buy some beer.

    Speaking of beer and recomendations ? last time i took a liking to Tooheys but open to trying any and all sugestions :wink:

     

    Catch up soon all and thanks for your kind messages on my last thread.

    Great to hear that you are here safely.

    It takes a few days to get your brain in gear, so don't make too many important decisions if you don't have to.

    Glad you arrived safely and have hit the ground running (like the rest of us I guess). Now the fun really begins. At least you have coolish temperatures to ease you in - we arrived in 15 degrees and heavy rain but the day we moved into our house it was in the mid 30s!

     

    Enjoy your new life in Adelaide - every day is a new adventure.........

    Quoted above to say just be careful in the sun, even though it's cool. The UV level is still predicted to be almost 11.

    If you want something to do on Sunday, there is a junior surf life saving carnival at Normanville: 8:30 - 3:00. All the clubs will be there.

     

    Enjoy your start to your new life,

    Good point Coolerking! I'm so used to slapping on the sunscreen after my shower EVERY morning regardless of what the sky looks like or what the outside temperature reads, I forgot to mention the 'dangers'

    Welcome to the sunny side, guys. Do you mean you got your phones unlocked, or got them put on international roaming? If unlocked you probably need to get a local sim card to put in them. When you decide what network to go with on your iphones, pop into one of their shops and get them to sort you out. We're with Vodafone, but there are (what seems like) hundreds of choices! Can understand your frustration at it not working!
