    Congratulations on the visa grant!

     

    Exciting times ahead and lots to do but it'l fly past I am sure.

     

    Look forward to hearing how it goes in the run up to you leaving and when you arrive here in Aus. Be prepared that June is winter here and its a couple more months of that will spring appears. I promise you even if its raining and a bit nippy here then, give it a couple of months and the sunshine will be back :)

    Thanks for that! We are prepared for the weather, we live in the UK so use to it!

     

    I did smile at the innocence of this comment. :smile: You will know when you are a 'local' when you start to feel the cold! In the winter, I sit watching tv with my blanket wrapped round me, I do have a little laugh to myself because it reminds me of my grandma and how she was all wrapped up watching tv in the UK winter. The OH once sat in the lounge with his woolly hat on after a winter hair cut ha ha. My OH always says that how cold it gets in winter was the biggest surprise for him about living in Adelaide.

    Lol! I know what you mean. I had to chuckle to myself this morning walking the kids to school in 17 degrees thinking it felt a bit nippy - think I might be going soft and we've only been here 6 months. :embarressed::embarressed:

    My husband has been in Adelaide for just over a week! he is settling in well, got a fully furnished house, van, phone and driving licence, just shows he can do all without me. He starts work on Monday! 10 weeks to go before the children and I will be joining him, got to get their exams out of the way first! all looking forward to our new adventure, not looking forward to the good byes! hopefully hear if we can take our Bongo in the container soon, takes along time for approval!
