Went to JHC yesterday and they are going to take on my sponsorship, so hopefully be starting with them 9th Febuary if it gets done in time. David was supposed to be starting work last night but couldnt go as our car wasnt delivered. we bought it on the 10th january and asked for a service on it, they found some things wrong so got them fixed, we were supposed to have it by last saturday, then they said monday. phoned them monday morning to see what time, they said by the afternoon, returned our hire car. by 3.30pm, phoned again, promised it by 6pm. phoned loads of times, no answer, no car! so david couldnt get to work as he,s training SOR for this week. Luckily he didnt lose his job before he had even started! car delivered this afternoon, so he,s gone off tonight, missing him already!

how the time flies! Been to the beach everyday so far, Mullaloo is sooooooooooo beautiful be it windy or calm! David starts work monday night, ive been offered a job at Joondalup Health Campus. Those who have read my blog will know i was offered job with them first but turned them down cos they were slow with the visa process. Going to see them on monday to discuss options. As we will be living in Woodvale (lovely area) it will be much easier for me to get to work, will see what happens. Means i will start work 2 weeks earlier but ive been off since 20th December so cant complain! With us both starting work earlier and saving money by buying a cheap runaround, we will already have enough to pay for the girls to come out in July, a costly business i can tell you, just hope they decide to stay -will save us fortune!! On the whole, still like it enough to stay. David is already talking about getting his boat licence and buying a small boat, so think hes planning on staying a while longer! Once we both get back to work and Harry starts school, it will then become a bit more real i suppose and we will get out of the 'holiday mode' we seem to be in at the moment, and spending like we are on one too!!
Feeling like we did the right thing and glad we have done it - for now anyway. Who knows whats round the corner and what the future may bring, but for now, its all good and we are happy!
