Secured a rental
21 Mar 2011
Well we are still unpacking but just about sorted. Cant say our rental feels like home yet but getting there slowly. It still doesn't smell like our house yet!! No telephone line yet so cant ring anyone and still relying on mobile internet which is a bit hit and miss at times. Struggling a bit with the feeling of isolation but that will improve in time and a phone line will definitely help. Boys both start school next monday and are both really looking forward to it. Both really love the look of their new schools which is a great bonus. Brian has been offered a permanent position with another company which is great and more secure than just a three month contract. However the downside to it is that they want him to go to Mexico for a month to work almost immediately. Great opportunity for him but really not sure how i am going to cope. Will have to put on a stiff upper lip for the sake of the boys and just hope we are connected to the outside world by then. Hope everyone is well and take care Andrea.x

Yippeee, we moved in and are now in a midst of boxes but they are my boxes and i am so happy. Got to sleep in my own bed after 4 months which was wonderful and the boys have their X Box set up so they are happy. Brian has been offered a short term three month contract so thats a start. Things are looking up. Andrea.xx

We have managed to secure a rental in Berwick, SE Melbourne, and in the ' Zone' for the better secondary school. Apparently they are very hard to come by and i feel very lucky to have managed it. We just happened to be in the right place at the right time. Getting the keys on Saturday and then clean clean clean, and the container arrives on Tuesday. Whoooppeee i so cant wait to see all of our belongings again and to be able to sleep in our own beds again. I hope they don't smell?? We just need to get jobs now, only a trivial thing!!! Andrea. x
