Well, it's been too long since my last post, but so much happening here! We've had our week in Townsville! The kids were great in the car for the 5 hr trip. jack slept most of the way and Taylah was not a problem. They watched a movie or two on the DVD player which helped! It was great to spend the week with Dave and have that family connection again! We really enjoyed ourselves. I was a little overwhelmed at the beginning of the week in regards to finding a school and decent area to live, but by the end of the week with Dave off from work, we drove around and had it all sorted! Taylah is booked in to a lovely little school which is only a stone's throw from the Strand and probable living areas. She felt better once we had walked around and visited class rooms and talked to the administrator, I breathed a sigh of relief to have at least accomplished that much. We did check out a few rental apartments and happy that we will have a fair bit to choose from at this time of year!
There is so much to do there, we thought it was a really fun, family centred place, they have put alot of money into the town and it's more than impressive. So we are looking forward to our move now for an exciting change! Coming home was lonely and we still have 2 more weeks before Dave comes home for Jack's birthday party and then he will be home for the holidays and it will be action stations over xmas to get the house packed up. Ideally we want to be down there in the first week of January!
Other news, Taylah is still not well and her specialist now wants to do a 2nd operation and remove her tonsils, put grommets in her ears and quarterize her nostrils! I have been silently fuming over it, as she only had the adenoids removed in Sept! I am still not convinced she needs her tonsils out and have decided to put it on hold until we get to Townsville! Her ears are the main worry at the moment so hopefully a couple of months wont hurt. Poor little thing, we are so over it all!
