Default Two weeks until OZ

Well booked the tickets last weekend so we are on our way two weeks today. Looking out the window and watching the rain I can't wait for Nov/Dec/Jan etc(in OZ that is).

Resigned from work today(unemployed for the first time in 25years-weird feeling
Exchange contracts on the house tommorrow
Removal company 23rd and 24th
Complete house sale 25th
Homeless for two nights
Leave Heathrow 27.10.02 on Singapore air
Two days in Singapore( to break the flight up for the kids)
Arrive Melbourne 30th.

My wife is excited( well she came here 11 years ago backpacking now 11 years, two kids, one husband and one mortgage later shes going home- oh and she told me yesterday that no3 is on its way - bad timing

Anyway good luck to all of you still trying to leave and stick with it.

I leave my job at the end of the month and the house is going through sale now. Plan to be jobless and homeless by Xmas (as we applied May 2001 and still havent heard diddly!)

Good luck with your new life!

Yes I must admit its a great feeling especially now winters coming- no more telling the kids that they can't play in the garden cos its raining. Good luck with your house sale and application etc- its so stressful especially when you have so much riding on it, getting the timing right is a nightmare
