Default 1st Post from sunny Australia

We are here! ...

I have to admit I never was the best at organising things, and after thinking we'd arrive on the 22nd, we arrived on the 21st ...lol. All down to the time we left UK and arrived before, and how we did different times and flights this time, but as I say I'm not the best at organising stuff ...

Our pick up from the airport ( Lisa & Jim - Flowerofscotland ) has been excellent and altho they was expecting us tomorrow, they've picked us up and we're crashing at theirs till tomorrow when we'll go to the apartment arranged thru Claire ( Jonah's_mummy) who also funny enough was expecting us on the 22nd ...

Still, we're here at last and it was quite nice heading down the M1 motorway at gone 10pm and seeing a temperature sign saying 24C ...

Big day tomorrow as we have to get into the apartment, buy a car, start looking for the rental, make appointment to see the kids school, oh all the rest, but at least we are finally here! ...

Time for sleep I reckon!

Hi Paul & Nic

Glad to hear you arrived safe and sound, although you normally turn up late not early

Look forward to reading your posts and might even catch up with you in June/July as we are heading up to the Gold Coast/Brissie for a few days when we finally land in OZ.
