Hi every one
We are off on the 29th Nov.
In limbo land at mo, What to pack.. wearing winter stuff that will need to put in container, packing summer stuff in cases, not bothering with house work any excuse...still a bit of paper work to do, my tolerance levels with people seems to have lowered, people still going on about snakes and spiders a reason why they wouldn't go to Australia
Did managed to see Brian Adams at the 02 though !

It's amazing it's those that do not have the guts to take that step that will be negative thoughout! We are in South Africa, I'd rather take my chances with snakes and spiders that a gun pointed to my head. Take Care!

as I've got nothing better to do, Mary has employed me as her BE spokesperson for the time being...

"Could you let people on the forum know i'm thinking of them all and i'll try and post next week?"

Feeling a bit better Niamh - kids are still heartbroken, my eldest spent 2 hours crying on Sunday night - she wants me to send her back to England for a holiday next year. On the positive side, my youngest started her new school yesterday and liked it

Seriously hun, hope things get better for you soon. Please send me pms if things get on top of you. ((((((((((()))))))))))))))))

Hi Nic, well we finally booked the internet yesterday, we've been told we should get it by the end of the month

On a positive note, my cousin in Adelaide said that from what i've said (Miss Postive that i am!), Perth is about 5 years behind Adelaide in internet, shopping etc. Apparently in Adelaide they've got 24 hour supermarkets - just like in England - i'm stuck with 5 pm finish and closed all day Sunday:curse: Oh yeah, late night on Thursday til 9pm

Hope you're feeling better Nic - thanks for all your support.

Oh yes, before i forget, I spoke to Basty yesterday, she's in Clarkson at the moment and is having a BRILLIANT TIME She's just trying to find a rental now, but everything else seems to be fine.

Hey Mary, the less shopping, the better for your wallet.

So, still job hunting. Had an interview last week and it went very well... only to be told today that they dont want me because I have no legal experience..... i NEVER HAD LEGAL EXPERIENCE AND SO WHY INTERVIEW ME!!!

Anyway, I'm not worried yet. Just a bit frustrated. Getting burnt alive in Sydney. Its been hot here for the past week and so thats all good. hey are all you guys on facebook?

Thanks Lou, I am Ok, just frustrated at the lack of progress. It's one hitch after another and none of them are our fault - all to do with the buyer.

Great news!!

I'm not too sure about that. I've read lots of moaning about shop opening hours in Adelaide. Ask your cousin which supermarket is open 24 hours, because I need to know.

Hope you're feeling better Nic - thanks for all your support.

I'm Ok hun - just worried we will end up homeless at Christmas now.

Oh yes, before i forget, I spoke to Basty yesterday, she's in Clarkson at the moment and is having a BRILLIANT TIME She's just trying to find a rental now, but everything else seems to be fine.
Great news. Fingers crossed for her rental.

Bad luck Nige - I hate that - waste of everyone's time.:curse:

Nice to know it's warm at last!!!

I will PM you my name - just found FB.
