Another day in paradise
Hi all, let me begin by apologising for not updating the web site as frequent as we would like, but we are still in hotel accommodation and access to the Internet is not always available.
Well that said next Wednesday we move to our new home, well for the next six months at least, so hopefully we should have a phone line installed very shortly.
Last week was a real busy week, that has seen us fully open our Ozzy bank account and receive bank cards, pay the bond on the rental, receive our tax numbers and register for Medicare. We have bought a fridge, kettle, toaster, beds, quilts and covers, pillows, pots, pans, washer, plates, knives and forks, car, a partridge in a pear tree and god knows what else!!!!
We still haven't got the kids in School but hopefully that will be resolved tomorrow as the woman who deals with registration is back after throwing a sickie.
The kids have been very patient through all the shopping and we have tried to get them back to the hotel in time to have a swim each evening, they both love it in the pool and as soon as we get back through the apartment door they are stripping off, hoping down the corridor trying to get their pants off and cosys on.
We went down the beach to Redcliffe today only to find they were celebrating the beach landings of the first settlers to the northern colonies. It was a great day with loads of stalls, live bands and tribute acts, power boat racing, dancers, Bar-b-q's etc.
We spent most of the day by the Lagoon, a hugh purpose built swimming pool by the sea with free electric Bar-b-q facilities and all free. One thing we have noticed while we have been here is how clean the place is. The Aussies seem to be so proud of where they live. Everywhere is spotless. When the celebrating had finished there was hardly a paper cup to be seen on the road.
Thanks to you who left a comment and we hope to see you all very, very soon.
