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.

Hi Guys
We love to hear all your news and experiences you are encountering in your new adventures in the Land of OZ... and we are so glad the kids have made friends, that is a big help. You found a house, great,I know it is hard with a pet, same over here. Sooo.. Found a house, bought a car, is it a SUV? bought appliances etc etc, sounds like you plan on staying!!
Regarding the weather re your comment on the Rain, you know the rain will go away unlike England, plus you have the summer ahead of you.
You must be desperate to see Buddie, and I understand he will be with you next week. That will be some reunion...
We are off on a cruise this weekend out of Miami, a group of crazy friends (9). I don't know how I will keep up with them. (You met 2, Cheryl and Kyle a few years ago on your visit to Florida)
Anyway hopefully we won't be dodging too many hurricanes in the caribbean and we will be back in Florida Sept 16th. I will be checking email (even on board ship I still have to work) so keep in touch we love to hear from you.
Love you all oxoxoxo
Have fun
Babs and Pete more oxoxoxo
