Settling in to my new home

Almost a week into my stay in Warrington, UK and i’m loving it so far! I brought the Sydney weather with me that’s for sure, we’ve had perfect weather since I landed last Thursday. Thongs and sunnies all the way.

Phone was easy as pie to setup, bank account was about 99% done before I left Oz so all it took was a meeting with the bank and BAM I can get my first pay check!

Of course I will need to be working for that to happen.. which, if all goes to plan will start next week! The Looking Glass, the pub I’ll be working at is super cute and I’m assuming will be pretty much a second home to me… I’ve been there about 5 times already and I haven’t even started working there yet!

So far my time here has been spent meeting for coffee, shopping, drinking, too much pub food, train rides, bus rides and more drinking. Oh and Blackpool which is pretty much an entire town devoted to amusement parks, and a promenade complete with piers, ferris wheels, trams, arcades, fish & chip shops and LOTS of fairy lights.

Hopefully visiting friends in London this weekend before I become a working girl 😉

YES! Finally it arrived! My visa has been approved! Maybe tonight I’ll be able to sleep!

I’m sad to be leaving my friends and family (and tbh the most beautiful country in the world) but I’m sooooo excited to be going overseas, a new environment, new people, new opportunities and new adventures! 😀 😀 😀

Still lots to do and not much time to do it in! Did my voting this morning, and spent the day with my pop(coolest guy I know) and spent the night getting rid of everything that I own that I won’t be taking with me. Tomorrow dealing with travel insurance, gym memberships, bank accounts.. the list goes on.

8 days left and counting! eeeeeeeeee 😀
