Running fast to get nowhere

Graz here,  thought i would do a quick catch up post because I am bored at work.  Bouncing off the walls here with anticipation and excitement that we are only 10 days to lift off.

We are tearing around trying to close off accounts and sort paperwork but without a date on the house yet we can not actually do anything so we are super prepared without being able to do anything and having probaly lost everything we can do :-p

What is to tell

House is moving on and we are expecting a date next week.

My last day at work is the 30th Nov and everything is completed prior to them shifting all my accounts to Oz (I am staying with the same company).

Car is sold and being collected on the 29th Nov from a the first response to the website advert.

Shippers are booked for the 3rd and 4th of December - went with Robinsons asI worked with one of the former managers/directors (It is who you know !!)

Flights are booked for the 6th for four of us Newcastle to Dubai to Singapore to Melbourne with Emirates,  Stepson is flying out on his own hopefully arriving around the 17th Jan (although there could be a phone call there are a lot of camels, where am I).

From Melbourne airport hotel we drive to stop with some distant relation of Tiggs on the Mornington Peninsula for a couple of nights to recover.  Then it is load the hire car from Melbourne to Adelaide along the Ocean Road.

I for one am really looking forward to this.  It has been 5 years since a holiday and 2 since we had any time off, so we are taking 3 days to cover the distance stopping in Apollo Bay, Port Fairy and Naracoorte.

We then have the SA Accomadation on Arrival for 12 weeks to get settled.  Although we have no address yet.

We then need to find somewhere to live,  the stepson is over on 17th Jan and the Dog flies over on the 21st Jan for her 30 day holiday in quarantine.

Then i start work in Adelaide on the 7th Jan sunned, relaxed and ready for the new life.

Broadband goes off on the 3rd/4th so updates may be down until we get to the land Down Under .

I am sure there will be plenty to tell!!
