Default 1 Week in and im a pool of water on the floor

Hi All
Just a short update as ive only been here 1 week, today is xmas day, cant believe im here, cant believe its 30 deg outside, and cant believe im going to be eating seafood for my xmas dinner........... But its all true, im in Townsville, and its lovely, everything i thought it would be has come true, ive not really started to appreciate it yet as ive spent the last week on the phone, looking at rental properties, looking for furniture and a car, so its felt like a year, but im glad to say that i will be moving in to my new house on friday.................
Update to follow...........
Merry Xmas Everyone

Hi Everyone
Happy New Year to all, well lets see, update time, here 4 weeks on Thursday, We have now settled in to our house, we now have a car, and i am able to drive safely on the correct side of the road, due to our circumstances we have had to rent most of our furniture.... bit costly but hey what can you do...broadband is now installed....huge relief, and satalite being done today yeahhhhhhhhhh for good tv lol. well i have to say i have been so busy sorting things out for the house as it has all been left to me due to david working so hard that i have hardly had time to think to much, things are now falling into place, and i now realize how important it is for me to find employment now as well, i have to get shosh into schol first, but things are fairly expensive here and 2 wages are a must me thinks...........i am still loving the weather event though i am looking through a rained on window at the moment due to a cyclone somewhere or another, still trying to get used to the bugs, ghettos, spiders ect ect, someone told me here that everything that moves wants to kill you lol, although a small bit of advise for all you newbies coming here, dont wear perfume as the mossys and the sand flys love it, and i was covered from head to toe in bites..........horrid, but now i wear no perfume ans they leave me alone lol, i just walk about stinking lol.....i am very happy with the house and the estate i am living on, very clean and not cluttered at all, shops near by..wonderfull after what i have just come from, people are really friendly and helpfull, although they do have very strange jokes about the english.........but still loving the life and hope to be for some time to come after all where else is there from here..........its the other side of the world... still sounds strange to say lol..........i would say for me living in townsville is very much like living in florida everything looks and feels the same.......
anyway im off for a coffee as its now 10 oclock am and it is coffee time...
