I can’t quite believe that I’ve been here for 3 weeks already! Despite the best of intentions, this is the first time I’ve had the chance to sit down and write an update on how I’ve been getting on.
Once back in Melbourne, we had a long list of things to get organised in order to get set up and running for life in a new city. I was lucky to get a job offer before I moved over (which really helped take some pressure off) and we were also lucky enough to secure an amazing apartment in the northern suburbs (complete with walk-in wardrobe!) which has also made the transition over here less stressful. We had just two days to furnish our apartment before I had to start work and as it’s the norm here for apartments to be completely unfurnished (this includes no fridge or washing machine) it meant an incredibly busy (and fairly stressful) couple of days, but thankfully we have 99% of all we need now and the apartment is looking really great, which all helps to make us feel more settled.
