Thank you all so much for your congratulations and for those Sydnians (is that what we call you?) who put up your hands to offer some help in our move. I will be in touch with you all shortly :)
David and I are slowly starting to sort out the things we are taking/not taking to Sydney with us. I have to try and sell my car and we need to sort out sending our cat over to Sydney. It turns out that sending fluffy balls of cuteness to Australia is pretty darn expensive! But I can't leave her.
We got her from the SPCA when she was about a year old. She had been abandoned with her litter mate at a house, where she caught the feline flu and could have died if she wasn't rescued by the SPCA.
I've also been looking at the rental situation in Sydney basically everyday since we found out and I've been looking at the job situation - living in Sydney is going to be rather more expensive than it is here and so a job is the second biggest thing on the 'to do' list after finding a place to live once we arrive.
On top of all that, its pretty darn exciting, and I'm looking forward to meeting lots of new people and doing something new, somewhere new!
David and I are off to Naseby for the weekend, so I'll hopefully see you all next week (I'll be officially on holiday!!).
