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!



Well done on getting there. Looks like you've got a busy few weeks ahead of you. Keep us posted, and all the best for your new life, Nicky x

I think he already did that anyway

I am sure he will fit right in, not sure if I am being a little stereotypical here but in my limited experience of male hairdressers I would like to think my findings are pretty much spot on

Welcome to Aus Paul, Nic and family.
Glad you made it finally!!

Dont forget that in your rental you will need large deck and bbq so that you can have a "we are here" party.

Makes a change. All the meets you've been to, you managed to be late - what went wrong this time - oh I get it, you weren't driving

Well done for getting here. See you've brought the weather with you - bit chilly today and very chilly last night.

East Coast Rentals on Elkhorn, Surfers are good. We ended up buying one of their cars, very reasonable and helpful.
