    My last post was a day after we arrived and wow a week has gone already!

     

    First few days the weather was not so hot, so I guess it made it easier for us to get into the swing of things but now its time for plenty of fluids and my fridge is full of beer!

     

    Got my first interview on Monday, I did not think that would happen so soon, Really happy about that.

     

    well first week where has it gone.

     

    Drove into the city to activate bank accounts and pick up debit cards

    Registered with Medicare

    Australian sim cards and phones sorted

    TFN numbers applied for.

    Viewing long term rentals

    Purchased a car

    drove up to brighton for a look around

    To keep the kids happy and stop the nagging we have been to Moana beach, Port Noarlunga beach, Christies beach, Aldinga beach and Brighton beach! thats without the parks - which i won't list!

     

    Burnt my nose!

     

     

     

    drunk about 20 bottles of wine :biglaugh:

     

    really enjoying ourselves and living the dream

     

    Hope all of you who have arrived are settling in well

    Hi Mandi

     

    We applied for our TFN on line when we got here, it was an easy process takes a few minutes. I read when filling in the on line application it takes 2 - 3 weeks so apply soon as you get here and you will be fine.

     

    Good luck

    Welcome to Adelaide Jason and Gail. Congratulations on the interview, good luck. What line of work are you in? It is always useful for people looking on here to know the 'in demand' jobs that secure interviews/work quickly.

    Thanks Jessica.

     

    Well in a nut shell, I have 25 years of hands on experience in heavy industry/Manufacturing, Gained Numerous Health & Safety qualifications (NEBOSH, IOSH, CIEH etc) and several mobile plant driving licences (Fork lifts, skid steers, front loaders and dump trucks ), Also so I could increase my level of safety awareness to co-incide with my safety qualifications, I worked in the fire service for 7 years as a retained Fire fighter.

     

    Cheers Jas

    And it all counts for 'Jack S#%t' once your here. You have got to start all over again, it gets really frustrating/annoying when you go on these training courses and you know more than the teacher!! and how dumbed down some of the training is.

    Good luck with everything, and just go with the flow, bight your tongue, you get there in the end!:smile:

    Hi Keith & Linda

     

    We have travelled 11000 miles to start all over again!! so that does not bother me at all, I have not come here to be the next millionaire.

     

    I just want to earn enough to enjoy.

     

    Thanks for the advice
