well, things continue to go well for us. my girls have been granted their visas which is a huge relief!2arrive in just under 4 weeks time and we are all so excited about it! we moved last weekend,still in woodvlae but in a much nicer rental. house in UK continues to be rented ok so thats another relief! even if we dont manage to buy here , at least we own a house somewhere,, even if it is the other side of the world!but hopefully one day in the not too distant future we willbuy here,never say never! love woodvale so much, cant imagine living anywhere else, although there are somany other lovley suburbs too. harry is loving school still, been swimming all last week and this week every day, cost $38! alot cheaper than UK. Job is still going ok,settling in well on the ward,David still doing ok at work too. the weather is still lovely,sunshine still but has got colder in mornings and evenings, but who cares when the sun shines during the day! drove up to Yanchep National Park last weekend, really lovely place. there are some lovely places around. i am going to go for PR next march, so hopefully will get the employer nominated ,sometimes i worry that cos we are on 457 we could be sent home,but i dont think so as there is still a shortage of nurses, but until we get PR i wont feel completely secure!miss family,obviously miss the girls but they will be here soon! have some family coming to stay next year so that will be nice. but on the whole, im so glad we made the move when we did, we love it here and now that we are in a nicer house we feel happier, the girls here would be the icing on a very tasty cake!!!
