    Hi all,

     

    Clan Mac here!!! Not posted for a long time but hoping to be packing up our stuff and landing in SA as soon as our house sells (groan!!!!!). We got our visa 176 last March, validated in July 2011 and returned home to fix our house up ready for selling. Everything is done now and the house will be on the market by the end of the month. The housing market here is pants so we've got no reasonable idea when we will be landing. Given the current market conditions we hope it is soon but ..........I am thinking to myself what will I do if it doesn't sell quickly?????????? I feel as if we are in some kind of limbo but yet I feel lucky to have a great new life down under to look forward to!!! We loved loved loved Adelaide and it's wonderful people. I know it's going to be hard in the beginning, and I accept that we will have to work very hard to achieve the outdoor Oz lifestyle we so crave. Coming onto the site this morning reminded me that there is a huge support and information network on here just a click away! Sorry for being a fair weather member I promise to post regularly!!!!!

    Hello!

    good luck with the house sale! Coming into spring (?), should help! Just takes one, we sold to the first viewer in a rubbish market in Edinburgh, last year!

    cheers

    Putting the house on the market is another step closer to reaching your goal! We managed to sell ours in just over 2 months with Xmas and new year in the middle. We did start to feel desperate as it seemed to take forever and we had about 15 viewings that came to nothing but in reality it was actually very quick in today's housing market. As everyone says, it only takes one and if the price is right then someone will buy.

     

    Good luck! Keep us posted!

    Wow - now see that's what I'm talking about! Many thanks for all of your replies and kind messages! It is a lovely sunny day today (for a change!) and seeing these nice posts have really cheered me up. As you say Ian Mc MV is a nice area with good local links to schools and the city centre I really hope it sells soon!

    You will get there in the end, remember it just takes one person who wants the house.

     

    See you down under soon.

    Hi Lorraine,

    how long ago do those medicals seem! And I was so stressed! My hubbie has overused the fantastic health system since he got here too, through sheer bad luck!

    yep, still up for Zumba, there are a few classe around here, if only I can motivate my chubby bum to them! :)

    keep in touch

    Hey Gill, been a while since I was last on here feeling really scunnered this morning and then I read the nice replies. Just praying that somebody somewhere has the cash to buy soon. Feel stuck in limbo here, can't focus on the here and now for thinking about the future, then when I try to imagine us all there I feel as though it will never happen. Trying not to be a bummer it's so unlike me but gonna pull my socks up and try to just get on with it. No worries on the zumba front as soon as I'm there me and you are gonna Zoooooommmmmmbbbbbbbaaaaaaaaaa! Lovely to hear from you and I will keep in touch. thanks for all kind replies folks.

     

    Zumba hugs Lola xxxx
