At last we're here.



Well after a lot of heart ache, we finally made it to Aussie. We arrived about 11 p.m. Thursday night after being delayed in Singapore and was picked up by an old pal of mine from England. (Lee BIGGER nose Kirkbridge) When we got out of the airport we had to check that we had not landed in Manchester as it was pi8@%ng down and around 5 deg. It was great to have some one pick us up after such a long flight, I do'nt think I could have faced driving.
Well the rain kept up for three days and if another Ozzy had told us that we really need this rain I think we would have poked his eyes out with a sharp pointy thing.
By Sunday though the rain had gone and we have had great weather since.
Loz and Will have already made friends with my pal Lee and his very helpful wife Dawn's kids, William 7, Hannah 9, and Elenor 11, which will help them settle in.
They seem to have a great fun together, when I,m not driving over there basket ball net and smashing it up (sorry kids I will replace it honestly).
The hotel is fab with a balcony and fantastic sea views, the kids have their own apartment adjoining ours that they think is great.
We have spent today looking for a rental property in the North lakes State college catchment area (Monday) and think we may have found a nice place although they are few and far between that will accept pets.
Its now 8.30 p.m. as I write and we have just been up on the 9th. floor for our first Aussie Bar-b-q and a first taste of Kangaroo.
The views are fantastic looking right across the sea with views of Morton Island right up to Brisbane Harbour.
Well that's it for now will keep in touch with you and do'nt forget to add your comments so we know who's watching us.

Leaving Party





Well saturday saw the leaving party take place at the now world famous Wrenthorpe working mens club formally known as the Pheonix. It was great to see so many friends and family turn out just for little old us.
If we did not get to chat with you for too long please accept these apologies but it was madness the amount of people that came along just to make sure we buggered off!!
Thanks to Tommy Sabella the D.J. , an old pal of mine who donated his time free of charge, well they say you can't buy friendship.
