We are here!
We got in last Tuesday afternoon after a manic week of packing up the house. Actually that was done for us by a removals company, but we had to be around to make sure what was goig to be shipped got shipped. Jade's parents turned up to add to the confusion and I had to make sure they did not get wrapped, packed and shipped.
We then moved into a hotel while the export docs were sorted out with Chinese Customs and finally flew out on Friday 4th to Singapore.
I had some meetings but we also wanted to see the two cats who are in Quarantine. One month full quarantine, 5 months in a cattery (but Jade has other ideas) and then another month on arrival in Aus'
Jade was both happy and upset at seeing the cats in their quarantine area. Nice enough but as they say 'no room to swing a cat'
Looks like Jade will desert me for a couple of months and go and stay with friends in Singapore when the cats get released and they can do a homestay.
Naturally some small things did not get shipped and Jade found them..we ended up with I think a total of 70Kgs of luggage. Luckily she mentioned they were wood on the declaration and we then got thoroughly checked by the Customs here.
We are in a rental at the moment, but yesterday we made and offer, which was accepted for a house on the north side of Perth in an area called Clarkson. We hope to be in there by 27th May.
Good garden with fencing, I hope the cats take to WA wildlife...they will probably take it to our door...
Thanks for the info on the local contacts Sandra. I will follow up.
Thanks for all your kind messages.
