Newly arrived!

    Recommended Posts

    Just thought I'd update you on our first two weeks here. We arrived on Sunday 24th May and thought we'd gone back to Manchester - it rains in South Australia???

     

    Meet and Greet guy very helpful and took us shopping, but all we wanted to do was go to bed!

     

    Done the necessary things - tax reference, driving licence, banking, immigration meeting etc. Going to see about a school for the girls on Tuesday and then get down to the serious business of looking for jobs - the holiday can't go on forever unfortunately.

     

    Been given OAA in Christie Downs which I've been told is not such a great area. Have had a look around Christie's beach and that looks better - what do you lot all think?

     

    People seem really friendly and very helpful and seem to have plenty time for you.

     

    Been down to Victor Harbour and even saw a couple of whales! (Well, their tails anyway).

     

    Anybody play in a vets football team? Hubby would like to continue playing - he played once a week in a 7-aside team (usually came home injured!). Noticed the leisure centre at Noarlunga - might have to put a notice on their board.

     

    Enjoying Adelaide so far.

    Lucky you seeing Whales, weve been down a few times and not seen owt...

     

    Parts of CD are nice, same as everywhere really - there is a large community of £10 poms there and is viewed as 'rough' but aside from a few streets/bits weve not seen much bad there.

    CB is nice but has good n bad etc.

    Were down in Seaford - and the wife's ozzie teen workmates call it the new Elizabeth!! we dont think its rough at all :nah:

     

    Oh - welcome to Adelaide ;) its a lovely place

    Hi, welcome to Adelaide.

     

    It must be a real shock at the moment with all this rain, everything will be lovely and green for you.

    Wait a while the sun will come, and come, and come.

    Sorry about the rain - the last 2 days would have confirmed it for you then! We watched a fab downpour about 7pm on Sunday. Still, it's better than living in a desert, eh?

    I have retired due to too many bits breaking and falling off, but a guy at work who plays indoor 5 a side is always looking for players. However, they are based North of the city, which might be a bit far from CD for an evening game. If your hubby can't find a game down South and gets desperate, I could put him in touch.
