I HAVE A JOB!!!!

I have been offered a job working as a doctor for Lismore Base Hospital in new South Wales. So I guess it's really going to happen now! I will be starting on August 22nd and can't wait! But in the meantime there is literally mountains of paperwork and beaurocracy to plow through. They tell me there's 4 stages but as far as I can see stage 1 has about 10 stages! Pages and pages of paperwork, solicitor witnessed documents, private medical checks including very expensive chest xrays, a million forms of identity required, visas, medical council registration, Uk police checks, australian police checks, health checks, childcare checks.... The list is endless and I feel exhausted already! 

So on a  lighter note, a little about the area we will be living in;
Lismore is just below the border between NSW and Queensland. Surrounded by rainforest and mountains with a tropical climate! (Maybe even I will turn a little bit bronzed?!!) Its about 20 miles inland and within easy commuting distance from Byron bay - a surfers haven so Wyn will be in his element! (I've checked they also run salsa classes so I'm happy too!) We're about 1 hours drive from the Gold Coast (Surfers paradise and themeparks galore to rival Orlando!) We will be about 2 hours from Brisbane and 3 hours from the Sunshine Coast and Fraser island. Sydney is about 800km south so a short flight away. So all in all, a pretty perfect location!
