We haven't done anything particularly exciting yet as realising the public transport network is shocking, we made it our mission to find a car asap! We managed to get a good deal on a Toyota corola which was less than my budget Inc rego (like our tax and basic insurance) and passed a MOT just this morning! (in Australia it's illegal to sell a car with any mechanical faults so all cars get a mot in the week or so before selling.) anyway were pretty happywith our little car and are looking forward to getting out sightseeing!
Today becky arrived. She's another junior dr from uk starting work with me in the emergency dept and we have been in regular contact in the uk but met for first time today. Anyway she's really lovely and her boyfriend is coming out in December to find work so we may well live with them in Byron! She's staying with us for a few days as her flat in Lismore isn't available until sat so it's nice to have some company and we all cooked together tonight. The 3 of us are off to Byron bay tomorrow to check out the place where we'll be living soon. Oh and good news - becs used to dance so she's going to join me in finding somewhere to salsa/zouk/tango!
Anyway I will update you again when we do something more exciting! And by the way, thanks for all the messages and emails - it's nice to hear from you all and makes me feel less homesick!
