I am still working on getting some pics together from Heenas trip, but in the meantime, here is a copy of an email Sham sent to family back home... kinda rounds up the last few weeks for now... more to follow in the next few days!
Hope you are all well... Apologise for not being in touch for a while
but thought I would let you all know what has been happening with us.
You can look at http://shahsinoz.blogspot.com to have a better idea of
what has been happening throughout our time here, but here’s a quick
I stopped working about a month ago as my contract was up... In that
time we had a friend over from the UK so I was being a tour guide.
Kunj was working hard, making sure we had food on the table and a roof
over our head! The lease on our flat in Manly also expired so we
needed to find somewhere new to stay and say goodbye to having a beach
on our doorstep! We decided to move closer to the city for the
convenience of work and also a slightly cheaper cost of living... We
moved to Balmain... email us for address and phone numbers!
We’ll send some pictures of the new place soon. It is a lovely little
house and nice area. People say it is similar to Muswell Hill back in
London. We moved well with the help of a few friends and are now
We also got some good news this morning that Kunj’s sponsorship visa
has come through which means we are allowed to stay in Sydney until
2013!! We have been trying to get something like this sorted since we
came here (nearly a year ago) and finally it has come through! Talk
about last minute! This is really good news for us as we can properly
start to live. I can go back to work in the next week or so too!! BTW
– this also means that you can come and visit us now as we are here
On the down side... we did have a return ticket booked to come back
home in Dec, but this is now unlikely. We will probably come home
sometime next year for a proper holiday and see all of you guys!
I think that’s all folks! Keep an eye on our blog for more regular updates.
Until next time...
Take Care and we’ll catch up soon.
Love Sham and Kunj x
