We met in Flinders Mall today to go to the bank and now we officially have Aussie money. We had wired some before we left but had to go to get our atm cards and apply for credit card, etc, and we had a really nice bank lady helping us. Took awhile to get it all done but the good thing is that I can do it all on line like I am used to with the billpay and all that which is great. The less I have to do in person the better!!! We stopped at a Kebob place for a quick “take away” lunch and it was good—basically toasted tortilla wraps with whatever you want in them. Chris had eaten there before so he was the “expert” on it. I did fine walking to meet him and found my way back to the apartment with no problem. Tomorrow I may venture out and find a place to walk—everything is under construction so you have to be careful where you go because you end up walking on the street alot.
Just turned the tv on and found Days of our Lives and Oprah, saw Ellen this morning but they are all about a year behind in episodes from the looks of it! I can tell the future for these folks!!! LOL
Think Chris is going to venture out in the car a bit tonight before dark–since it is winter here it gets dark around 6-6:30 so we will see how late he has to work. I don’t really want him doing the driving thing the first time after dark…..the weather is beautiful—breezy, sunny and probably low 70’s though I am not positive on the temperature! I have to learn to convert all those numbers…..give me time, give me time!!!
Will post more tomorrow!!!
