I got the job!
All being well I should start on Tuesday.
Think it is going to be a bit of a shock to the system after having 5 weeks off!

Well 3 weeks in and it feels like we have been here ages!
We have pretty much sorted everything out now, just need to find a long term rental. We have seen a few properties but I think we are going to wait until the new year before we try to secure anything as we have our holiday rental until 13 January and do not want to be paying two lots of rent for too long!
I think we may have finally tied up our loose ends back in the UK, our house sale is due to complete on Monday and my Dad has possibly sold my car.
Mark started a two week temporary job yesterday and has the possibility of a permanent job in the new year. I have my first proper job interview this morning so fingers crossed. It is only a three month contract but should give me some valuable WA experience on my cv.

Just a quick post to keep you updated.
We have been so busy, there is certainly no time for a holiday with so many things to sort out!
We have applied for our driving licenses, validated our bank accounts, looked for a car and I have even met with someone from an agency about finding work and we have only been here for 4 full days, I am not even over the jet lag yet!
Our friends have been amazing, they have really helped us over the last few days in finding our feet. We can now drive from our rental to their house without using our Bruce Bruce (our new name for the Tom Tom.)
