Our first visitors and the shipping arrives!

Its my husbands birthday so that evening we went downtown for the first time since we moved here with some work colleagues, partners and friends....seeing the buzz and lights of downtown again for the first time since our visit in Nov 2013 has given us the drive to get out again soon.

To start we went for dinner at Sullivan's steakhouse which sadly has now closed down, we enjoyed some great food then we went onto a bar where we drank copious amounts of booze and danced until closing - standard night for us Brits! 

Two exciting things happened next, my parents arrived for a visit and our shipping arrived from England.

Our shipping was booked to arrive at 10am, I'm expecting it to be a bit late as these things tend to be but three and half hours later the container finally arrives after travelling 4847 miles from England unscathed - I googled the distance - a few miles down the road they get stopped by state troopers aka highway police nothing to report just a routine search which just took ages. 

After I tick off all 92 items and sign about eight sheets of paper the shipment guys are satisfied their job is done and off they go.

Then it's a quick turn around getting the children fed, bathed and ready in their PJ's for my mum and dad's arrival...it was such a buzz to see them again we all hug, the children squeal and we show mum and dad to their room.

Even though we've only been in Austin almost five weeks it feels like we have loads of new things to show mum and dad, but really we have not been out and about as much as we would have liked so this weekend is a good excuse to do this...
