Were here, where? Over there, in Australia.

We have now arrived in Australia, 5th March 2012, and getting used to life in Thornlie, Perth.

38-40deg's for the first two weeks but now its cooler, a mere 28deg's!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It was a sad and exciting experience leaving England,
lots of family and friends at the airport, very mixed feelings.

We are living with my son Dean, Rachel and my two grandchildren, Charlotte and Jacob.

The weather: A husband and his wife were sound asleep when suddenly the phone rang. The husband picked up the phone and said, "Hello? How the heck do I know? What do I look like, a weatherman?" He then slammed the phone down and settled into bed.
"Who was that?" asked his wife.
"I don't know. It was some guy who wanted to know if the coast was clear."

Its also job hunting time for myself, Sue and Ryan whilst Kye needs to start school, although I don't think he see's it that way!! A long process that will lead to us moving into our own home.

Firstly though, we need transport. Cars to buy.

My car, the family car;
Holden Commodore Executive (Vauxhall)

Sue's car, the run around;
Ford Fiesta
already with Blackburn Rovers stickers!!!!
Not saying anymore!!!!!!!!!!!!

So life has moved on for the four of us:

Kye has started Thornlie Senior High School, just completing his first week. He walks to and from school, about 20mins away and has joined the school basketball club.
He looks happy in his school uniform!!!!!!!!!

One down, three to go;

Ryan started looking for work that would involve apprentice/training jobs, possibly in the building industry. First application, first interview, got a job. He is a Junior cabinetmaker, working with a family run company making kitchen furniture.
Ryan started his job this week, travelling to and from work by train, and he is enjoying it. He's also very happy now he can say he has his own money in his pocket.
He has joined the local football club and is training and playing for the under 18s team.

Two down, two to go;

That leaves me and Sue. Job hunting, joining agencies, completing applications, applying for jobs.
Plenty to look at and apply for, awaiting application closing dates then hopefully, interviews to be arranged.

In the meantime, 28 deg's sunshine to sit out in............

Need to take the cover off the pool,
It's still cooler though!!!!!
The weather: The Lone Ranger and Tonto went camping in the Australian desert. After they got their tent all set up, both men fell sound asleep. Some hours later, Tonto wakes the Lone Ranger and says, “Kemo Sabe, look towards sky, what you see?”
The Lone Ranger replies, “I see millions of stars.”
“What that tell you?” asked Tonto.
The Lone Ranger ponders for a minute then says,
“Astronomically speaking, it tells me there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets.
Astrologically, it tells me that Saturn is in Leo.
Time wise, it appears to be approximately a quarter past three in the morning.
Theologically, the Lord is all-powerful and we are small and insignificant.
Meteorologically, it seems we will have a beautiful day tomorrow.
What's it tell you, Tonto?”
“You dumber than I thought. It means someone stole the tent.”

Speak to you soon
