Default g'day mates, we're back on line!!!!!

hi everyone,
well, i'm back, we're in the Eatons Hill area of Brisbane, in our own rental - 4bed lowset, have bought a Toyota Rav 4 Cruiser, Chanelle is in school they are on Spring hols at the mo so she starts on October 4th! Have had a nightmare with my laptop, Pc World were supposed to fix it before we came out but didn't!!! And yesterday i found that in the area we're renting broadband is not available so i'm back on dial up god its slow!
our shipment arrived Thursday, had a few bits broken so will have to claim back on the insurance.
been to Australia Zoo today and saw the Crocodile Show with Steve Irwin and Terri, great day out
so much to tell you all, if you want to know more then pm me!
Brisbane is great and although we are in holiday mode still we love it here, it feels so much like 'we're home at last'!
Boomie - i've tried to email you but it kept coming back to me mate, pm me please
thanks to everyone on here who helped to make our new lives down under possible

Hi Rach,

Just want to bloody get there after the trauma with the house. It seems ages since you weren't on line and I'm really pleased it looks like its going well for you so far.

I finish work on the 22nd Otober and fly from Humberside airport on Weds 27th October via Schipol and Kula Lumpa on Malaysian airlines - a freebie courtesy of a bucket load of air miles I didn't realise I had - jammy or what !!

Can't wait to seem them all, Imogen's got an Aussie accent and they both seem so happy !!

Keep in touch

Warren

PS: The dial ups a real pain isn't it. Jill finally gets broadband soon.

Hello Rach,

Glad to hear it's so far so good....may it continue.
