Hi all,

Yip its been 3 months and what a 3 months. Our Container arrived and the unpacking started, had a few things actually stolen like my video camera, broken lamps and damaged fridge, and a TV that was damaged as well. Thought the Insurance process would be an dream but what a disaster, the broker that is handling our claim is an arrogant idiot which has caused many a fights between Roy and myself. Bottom line we are being paid out but they are not paying us out or out TV as they do not cover internal damage to electrical. (Rear projection TV not working and discontinued in Australia). So all of you please when shipping make sure that this is covered on ur insurance policy. Lets just say that I was happy with my removers but would not recommend them to anyone now.

Mom and Dad came down for a visit and was so nice seeing them again, brought the kids bikes etc. Roy arrived back and he passed his learners as well, so we are both half way to getting our drivers, pretty nervous though to be honest. Promised myself will take the test next week.

Weather has really been cold over here, and wish it was summer. Looking forward to the family arriving from OCt owards for Xmas and know its going to cure my homesickness.

Been having alot of problems back home with my house and animals and its getting harder and harder everyday not wanting to go back for my animals. But I keep on telling myself I can't. Dont get me wrong Australia is a stunning place but home is always where the heart is.

We got a new addition to our family a little silky terrior named it Paris and she is so adorable, kids love her and really needed her.

Got tickets to the big SA VS WALLABIE rugby game on the 05 Sept and so excited cannot wait.

Otherwise life is going well here, loving the safety and freedom here, and must say that australians are very friendly people, and the nation as a whole is so respectful and family orientated.

I wish all of you out there luck, its hard but so worth it at the end.

Chat soon
