Ah ha, I know why this is going to be! That's great, we went out looking for some of the places you suggested and I got so muddled we ended up on a wild goose chase. Did find Matilda Bay though and drove past the Crown Plazza hotel complex (well the car park actually). Look forward to reading it. I doubt I'll make it Thursday. Probably running around cleaning or baking lemon cheesecakes and apple pies as part of the welcome greetings. I'll look knackered by the time they get here! x

Just wanted to update this thread as I started it just before we left the UK and as of today....we have been here for 1 year exactly. Our first year anniversary! :jiggy:

 

So much has happened in that time. Recently we bought a house and are now just waiting to move in. A wonderful feeling to be able to make decisions and changes to the property you live in, unlike the rental we have had so far. Will be a relief to stop having rental inspections every two months. Also, I started work last week as a High School Teacher! Signed a contract today. I think the work thing felt like the final piece in the jigsaw. I have to pinch myself sometimes as I drive around as just take this all for granted. We made our dream happen, we live on the other side of the world beside the beautiful Indian Ocean, have happy children in fab Oz schools and a contented, settled life. It's still early days in the bigger scheme of things but my word, we have done pretty well so far on ticking things off the list and are not regretting it one bit. :cute: Cracking open the champagne on Friday. Need a clear head for work tomorrow.

One Year, what a great achievement congratulations.

It has been a pleasure watching and hearing all this take place and knowing you had a great attitude from the beginning in realizing your dreams and wanting to call oz home.

You are an inspiration to others.

Wow Ann, that is so lovely. Thank you! :cute:

 

Been at work all day and feel knackered. Tried to be an 'inspiration' to my students but think for some I was just a strict moaning teacher. didn't let them get away with anything. Hence why I feel so exhausted. However, I know I connected with many of them and had a laugh and a bit of banter whilst they learnt new skills. They make teaching so rewarding. Still early days.

 

At the moment I have Thursday's off which great as I am desparate to get the house sorted. Once things calm down, I'll definitely be back on the socialising with the girls. Ann, I'll meet you for that coffee soon. Xx
