Default Re: Settling in Perth 2007/8 List

Hi Guys, Just checking in as I havent been on for a while. I'm already on thelist but cant get it to open so dont know if my flight details are on there - if not we fly out of Glasgow on Oct 1st with Emirates and touch down in Perth on o2 Oct. Cant Wait!!!!!!!1

Although, have been having quite a few wobbly moments recently and crying at the slightest thing - I am definately committed to starting a new life and cant understand why i'm so emotional - please tell me this is normal!!! Have been living with the in laws for 5 weeks now and another 8 to go so trying to put it down to that- ha ha - also worried about financial side of things but then I suppose everyone is but we aint going with very much - Anyway will stop mumping now and start getting excited again - till next time I have a moment anyway!!

Thanks for putting up with that little rant

Hi there,

I would like to be added to the list, please.

There's Kevin, Fibrous Plasterer (40), Janine, housewife (31), Hannah (6) and Tom (4).

We have just bought some land in Jindalee, which is Northern suburbs. Completion is set for Monday 6 August.

We'll be flying out as soon as our house here is finished (undergoing major renovation work) and sold.

So hopefully be out there by October/November.

Janine

Yes - it's cos you're living with the in-laws!

I'm pretty edgy myself at the moment and putting it down to stress.

Hi Michelle,

Yes your dates on on the list, time is getting closer. I still think I should be doing more stuff, I think we are not panicking as my brother is going to live here and if it aint done it won't matter (thats what I keep telling myself).

Keep our chin up. I don't envy the living with the in-laws! Escpecially for that long, never mind you will soon be half way round the world! Yay!!!!!
Having a barbecue in Kings Park with the sun shining(I hope so).

You make me feel a bit better as your situation is so like mine.

I wobble all the time, and feel soooo stressed ! and I cry, but don't know why. OH and I are both so up for this new life and I can't wait. It just can't come fast enough now.

From all the posts I have read these emotions seem normal, but so hard for outsiders to understand. We have 11 weeks left to go

We have been living with my Dad for about 18mths now with all our life in storage, and I'm sure thats taking its toll, especially as he has buried his head in the sand and will not talk about our move, and keeps insisting he knows nothing about it and that we do not talk to him about it. Don't know quite how I get around this one. It's even harder as he is 82.

We are also struggling with the financial side of things and not going with a lot, so that adds stress also. We have worked out the minimal we need to take, and are trying to pull it in from wherever possible.

See a rant always pays off, you get to know your not the only one loosing the plot.

Take care, chin up

Sonja
