Saw some kittens!!

13 November 2017

So we moved to Melbourne! Much more arty & possibilities. Hopefully save some money and travel a bit from here!

19 August 2017

So ben had a bike accident and broke his wrist (two bones). He's currently on the hard stuff & I am currently brushing his teeth for him. It's all good practice for when he's an old fart.

9 August 2017

So me and Ben seem to be settling into work and life here. Totally ridiculously poor but enjoying the sun and relaxed people here. Planning our trips around, hopefully visit Rick and Mary soon up in Stanthrope then Melbourne next.

27 July 2017

Went to the botanic gardens & we saw our first snake and lizard! They decided to battle and the lizard won!

14 July 2017

Seen a possum! Got a job!

18 June 2017

Getting settled in. Have medicare cards & tax numbers. Our apartment is so nice! Still not seen a possum.

7 June 2017

Woo have our own space! Emma and Mary's friend has kindly let us stay in a granny flat attached to their family home! Everyone is being so so kind to us and we feel super lucky and blessed at the moment. It's a bit overwhelming! The apartment is in a super posh area (they have been living here since before the area was even slightly posh!) so there seems to be lots of places to apply for jobs & the view is amazing!! Emma , Damian, Bob and the kids were so so good to us and we are looking forward to finding out more about them! Missing home a little but we are off to get bank accounts and other paperwork stuff.

4 June 2017

Today we are off for a little walk. Bob (Damian's dad) took us a run down to the beach & we ate some brilliant calamari. Went for a wee wander, went to Woolworths, got toothbrushes & plotting what to do with our week! Jobs & somewhere to stay are top of the list!

3 June 2017

Woo we made it! Nearly missed the flight as there was issues at the check in desk (them not us!) so we had to run to security, where I got stopped twice. First time I had left a scalpel in my pencil case, clearly for stabbing times. I also had a battery type you couldn't put in the hold. Woopsie. Arrived in Oz after Ben puking up the whole flight. Ben gets stopped for having a well dodgy passport. Security was super relaxed!! Not at all light border patrol & no sniffer dogs. Gutted, should not have bothered filling my pockets with ham. Somehow made it to Emma & Damien's house via public transport. So lucky to have wonderful inviting relatives half way across the world. It's now 8pm and we are in bed. So rock and roll!!
