Sydney August 2009
There is no holding back Mary here, she interviewed with an employment agency the day after we arrived, was sent to a bank interview the next day and started work the next, so amazingly was set up in a great 4 month contract job after only 2 days. Unbelievable. Took a lot of pressure off us, knowing that we would soon have money coming in and we would actually be able to stay in Sydney and go get somewhere to live. Over our first week we scoured through the web looking for places, and tried to get to grips with what the areas were like and where was suitable. We viewed a few places and then on the Monday we found a massive one bed place in an old house in Charring Cross about 10 minute walk to Bondi Junction and near to Bronte Beach. It’s the first floor of an old house and had 20 foot ceilings, bit cold at the moment but hopefully will stay like that when the weather does get hot. That being said it is in the mid 20s and sunny nearly every day and this is the equivalent of February at home, they call this winter.
I’ve met with a couple of agencies and been offered some freelance work with one of the Networks over here so might have to neglect me househusband roles soon. All in all we have settled well and looks like we will enjoy our time here. Think I am done writing this up every day for a while too so there may be sporadic update but otherwise it would impede on my surfing time.
Take care to all who have read this far and stay in touch, you’ve got my email.
