I know it's been a while since I last graced the site. Jade and I are on the move at last. We leave Shanghai on the 4th April and move to Perth WA. The cats get flown to Singapore on the 28th March for their first load of quarantine and checks.

Poor things have to be in Singapore for 5 months and yet another month in Aus for more quarantine.

It is chaos here at the moment as there are boxes and rubbish everywhere. The bin rummagers are doing very well as I make regular trips to ditch the crap I have accumulated here.

Here's a question. Any Catters live in Perth and what is the local music scene like?

I do not want to loose what I have had here in Shanghai. Been really good years of regular playing and meeting some good people.

Great news, wonderful to hear from you. I'm sure our OzCatters will be able to clue you in on the Aussie scene.

Take care and we look forward to hearing more from you after April!

Good luck with the move SC. You'll have some serious making up to do once the cats come home - you know it will all have been YOUR fault as far as they're concerned!

Not to mention the stilted resentment from all your Mudcat friends. They need care, too, you know...

Folk Alliance Australia site

Western Australian listings

Western Australian Folk Federation

We have a few WAcatters - Bugsy & Notforjo, an irregular Mudcatter who I met last week at the National Folk Festival, maybe Bugsy will know her if you can't contact her via PM. Notfrjo is a muso so I assume she will be around sessions, & might even play for a Morris side.

I had to do that math also. "I don't remember a Washington town called 'Perth.'"

One could argue that Shanghai is also "on the other side of the world" from a lot of us. The main problem I see for him in this move is that they're going to have an entire year of winter this year. (Or it will feel that way, even if there were some warmer days of spring/fall there for a bit).

Perth, Western Australia climate, not very wintery!

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.

welcome to Australia, OzShanghaiceltic.

I haven't been to WA for years, since my brother-in-law decided to take overseas postings. They are nominally Fremantle residents & miss the great coffee shops & relaxed lifestyle there.

enjoy life in WA.

Nice to hear you made it and the mogs are doing okay. I'd have other ideas, too, if it were my cats. Go, Jade!**bg**
