Sorry, no photos of us landing in Sydney. We actually thought that we went back to the UK because is it sooooo freezing cold. Either that or we bought the English weather with us. Apparently, it is the coldest October day in 60-odd years. Oh great, thanks for the welcome Sydney. LOL

We got in early and my parents were no where to be seen! They thought we would be a while coming through customs and getting our baggage but we sailed through nicely. We waited for them to arrive outside and froze to death. It was really windy so that made it feel colder.

We are glad to be back on Australian soil again but we hope the weather is better tomorrow! LOL.

Bye, Bye UK

Oh yes, we are on our way to Sydney, Australia!! Woo hoo!

This is Oliver watching some television on the plane. He had a pretty good flight over with the television keeping him occupied for quite a bit of the journey. Thanks goodness! LOL

Speak to you on the other side!

Moving - Day 3

We are spending the next few days clearing and cleaning up the remainder of the house. We are leaving the shelves and couch so whoever uses our house can either use them or put them in the garage for storage.

We needed to keep Oliver occupied so we bought our laptop and a few of his DVDs with us. he parked himself on the couch and made himself comfortable.

This is our hotel room. The hotel has a pool and spa so Rob and Oliver enjoyed a couple of swims.
Bath time for Oliver. He certainly loves his time in the bath - especially the bubbles.

Oh, it was all too much for him! LOL

Moving - Day 2

On day 2, all our boxes were taken outside to make more room inside for the rest of our stuff to be packed.

The container was delivered early so the driver slept in his cab until we were ready to load everything inside. This is a 20' container, one of the smaller ones.

Oliver loved watching everything going on. So naturally, he was only too happy to stand in front of the container and have his photo taken. You can see it is half full.
Here it is full (well almost). Those boxes you can see are empty but they put them together so our stuff wouldn't move about during the journey.
See you on the other side.

Moving - Day 1

The start of our move! This is (or was) our living room! The movers have done a great job of packing up the house and have done quite a lot. I just kept feeding them coffee and they were happy!

These boxes are in front of our lounge room window. You can just see light coming through.

This was the only way to feed Oliver his tomato soup! Otherwise it would have been very messy indeed! LOL
We have moved to a hotel because our bed is packed away and there isn't a great deal of room to move about.

Our Last Curry!

We went out for dinner tonight with Neill, Kath and baby Ollie to our local curry house. This will be our last curry before we move (boo hoo). They guys there love Oliver and and look forward to seeing him each time. He is spoilt whenever we go. LOL

The movers are coming tomorrow......yippeeee!
