|cant believe we have been here a month already and what a month its been! There is so much to sort out, even for an organised person like me who writes lists upon lists upn lists etc its pretty hard going! oved into rental last saturday and container arrrives in fremantle next monday so hopefully get our worldy goods before i start work on the 23rd. just got a couple of things left to do but the major thing now is applying for my new visa. why do i do it? as if the last one wasnt stressful enough!!|
today was a pretty shitty day, david came back from his first nightshift on his own and is NOT going back, regardless of whether he gets this job he is waiting to hear about. He hadnt been trined properly and didnt have the keys to lock the door or the code to the store room. so he arrived home this morning feeling pretty low , then to top it all he was sure he would hear about the job hes gone for but his old manager at Readers Digest hadnt received the email for a reference, so cos of the time difference he has to wait till tomorrow. but he phoned them up and they,ve more of less told him hes got the job, just waiiting on the 2nd reference. so i told him he wast going back tonight, they can stick their job! then our car broke down and i have been on the phone to immgration half the mornning trying to sort out visa.
Harry has setted really well here. loves the beach as do we. Him and David are like fish in the water an david is teaching harry to body surf. hes settled well in school and has made some friends and his teacher thinks he,s really clever ( we know that already!!)
the house is fine, its hard living in a rental though when you,ve lived in your own house.
we had not long put in a new kitchen and conservatoy at home so im kind of missing that, sad that i am. its nice having a pool though and the sunshine to be able to go in it!!
we both had a cry this morning and had a good talk about how we are both feeling, it was good to get things off our chests. we still dont know if this is for us but will give it a year and see how we feel then. we like it here alot, we are so pleased and happy harry has settled well, but we miss the girls. they are coming out for 2 months in july and how we will feel when they go back home if they all want to, remains to be seen. but we will continue to give it our best shot and enjoy all the things this country has to offer. we also owe it to harry to give it our best shot, as at the end of the day, he had no choice in whether he wanted to come or not and he,s been a little star , taking everything in his stride.
who knows what tomorrow will bring hey?
