This heat and the ever friendly Adelodians. I decided that sunshine makes for happier people, but I highly disapprove of the UV.
It’s been one week since arriving in Adelaide. We got our new mobile numbers, bought a car, figured out the Adelaide Metro (bus), experienced the inconvenience of a blackout, and prepared for Pickle’s “homecoming”.
As newcomers to the city, we are temporarily putting up in a one-bedroom apartment near the city via AirBnB. This would be our starting base as we house-hunt for a place of our own. Did you know that prospective tenants are required to personally inspect and register at each property viewing? We would have viewed over 10 properties by now.
Pickle was released from the Melbourne quarantine facility yesterday, Sunday 9th February, and was flown to Adelaide. As predicted, the pet mover arrived at our doorstep at half-past two where we received the restless and voiceless Pickle. (She must have complained her whole way through. Typical.)
Dehydrated, a little weight loss and an untidy fur coat, Pickle is the same girl. She won’t let us out of her sight, very understandably. (She was isolated and flown-about for 35 days!)
I will be blogging sparingly from my mobile due to limited data and limp 3G network. Looking forward to having our own internet and space!
