    Hello everyone, we can see there are quite a few Families moving out to adelaide in the next few months and for all those already there we would like to say thank you for all your posts they have been a great guidence to us

     

    We arrive on January 2nd, a new year and a new life and cant wait :smile:

     

    The last few months have been absolutely mad but ive got to say im enjoying it. Flights booked with Singapore airlines 1st January

    landing on the 2nd. Sold our house, moved, out, shipped our furnisher out on the 14th October and moved into a short term rental

    at Swansea Marina until we go. One of the cars, sold, so just using a hold banger to get around, didnt want to try selling a newish car at christmas time !!. Bought new bicycles for us all and put them on the container with some prezzies for the kids to keep them happy when it arrives at our new home.

     

    Enrolled both our sons, Alfie (6) in Primary school and Charlie (4) in Kindy, meetings have been arranged with both directors of each school, so glad thats done.

    Secured a short term lease in Moana for 3 weeks allowing us time to find a long term rental in Port Noarlunga, as this is where we would like to live.(we just hope 3 weeks is enough)

    Bank accounts sorted, Transfer accounts sorted just now waiting for the exchange rate to reach 1.70 again. (if it does)

    Now just tying up a few losse ends and getting ready for christmas so yes its been fun, Cant do to much else until we arrive and then it starts all over again ha ha

     

    The both sets of families are starting to get a bit tearful, as we are nearly there, so Gail and I are just hoping to gain

    great friendships and enjoyable social lives with all of you who are going through it or done it.

     

    Many thanks Jason

    Very exciting time. What a way to start the new year! Good luck with your move. :smile:

     

    We're in the process of applying and Adelaide will be our destination. Fingers crossed, we are hoping we will be there by September 2014.

    Our boys are 8 and 11 and can't wait!

    Hi Gus, no email received. Not to worry, kids seats will be available by then, just remind me of their ages?

     

    you must be getting very excited and or nervous now. My advice, stop worrying and enjoy the ride. Said that to a friend I took flying a few years back, then we had an engine failure in the air and had to make an emergency landing..........eeaasy. Not sure if he had to wash his bum when he got home :biglaugh::biglaugh::biglaugh:
