I've been pretty good at transitioning from BTD to SWAMI-X over the last 6 weeks. I did discover that I was working from 2 different lists at one point, which kind of mucked up my planning!
But otherwise things are going well.

Now we're moving to Australia for 2 years, sometime in January. I could be wrong about the quarantine laws, but my understanding is that we can't bring food, especially opened food items into the country. So I have a pile of black dots to use up in the next 2 months, at least 2 weeks of which I won't be home anyway. Many of them were expensive, and I don't get any ill-effects from them, so I'm not going to throw them away just because my 60-day black dot period is not up yet.

Oh and another thing, I think this diet is deliberately messing with my mind! On the O-secretor diet I was allowed some dairy and the sprouted wheat bread. Toasted cheese sandwiches . Then as an O-nonnie, all dairy was taken out. I had to have toasted avocado'n'tomato-paste sandwiches which very definitely were not the same . Now on my SWAMI-X I have some cheeses back but then I realised all my bread has been taken out   !

Many people can have flax bread on their SWAMI's even if other breads are avoids.

Hey Squirrell, nice to have you coming here to join the aussie BTDers community!!  Do you know where in aussie will you be?  

What does Swami Make you?  Explorer? My O suspected nonnie guest is explorer by measurements and traits, her food lists makes flaxseed bread a black dot, but any sprouted wheat is beneficial as well as Essene, sprouted bread.  

it sucks having to get rid of so much food, but take it as sharing with someone in need and the blessings or good feelings  from that deed will follow you forever ...  I had to do something similar with the two big moves I had in my life ...

C_sharp - yes I must try that in the sandwich toaster. It's so soft that I was worried it might squash down to nothing. I can't have more than one slice at a time though... laxative effect...    

I'll be in Perth Cristina - about as far from you as it's possible to be in the same country! I'm really looking forward to the move. Have we anyone here from Perth? Bec the ex-blogger used to live there but the last we heard was that she bought a farm, and she hasn't been seen since. I hope she's OK.

I'm a Gatherer. Can't be anything else with my O nonnie-hood and index fingers 2-3mm longer than my ring fingers. Oh and being female. I can change absolutely everything else and it still comes up Gatherer with those stats.

I'm hoping that there will be more foods available to buy in Australia than Singapore.

Perth is beautiful.  That Swam river crystal clear.  We stopped there for a week when we first got to Australia, and probably would have stayed there, but hubby had job in Qld.  Mmmm, do not regret the move though, we love it here too.  All the best with your move.  

Also, you probably want to type underneath your shield that you are a Gatherer, to stop the curious amongst us from trying to guess you out when given advice ...

I mind-read you - done!

I added Gatherer to my Profile after I got the GTD book, but I went back on the BTD again, and despite specifying that in my signature, people kept assuming I was following the GTD. Even when I was posting in the Nonnie Clubhouse. So I took it out again. Now I'm SWAMI-Xing, it's relevant.

It's funny, I haven't met or spoken to one person who's been to Perth who doesn't love it. I hope we won't find it too hard to go home to damp, dark, drizzly England at the end of our 2 years there!

Where did you originate from?

Wow, quite a history!

My Dad's cousin married a darling lady from Uruguay, so that's one place I've always been able to find on the map. Your colouring is not the same as hers at all - I'm guessing that's the Italian ancestry? My best friend is a blue-eyed, very blonde two-quarters-English, two-quarters-Italian. And yes, I know two quarters make a half, but each of her parents is half Italian, half English.

Squirrel - What is the other half of each of the parents ancestory ??!! Wouldn't that make your friend 1/4 of each, depending what the other heritage is??
Cristina - I hadn't realised you were from South America.. Assumed you had moved straight from Spain And I had no idea you had lived in not only South Africa but J'burg to boot??!! Wow I loved our trip to J'burg - we were gonna move there but came to NZ instead.. Have since met quite a few people in Wellington from South Africa... Want to go back to visit soon as I can...

Wow!  Such international citizens on the forum.  

Glad we got you here Cristina!  Like the new picture, can really see the warrior shape to your head and can see you've lost weight since the last picture!  

Squirrel - good luck with the move.  I still miss Western Australia where I was born and lived until 9yo, though could it be my childhood I miss?  It's so clean and has so much natural beauty.  Kings park in Perth is special.

Sorry, that was quite a muddled description of mine, wasn't it?  

Her father is half Italian and half English. Her mother is also half Italian and half English. So I call my friend two quarters Italian, and two quarters English. 4 quarters makes 1 friend, right?

Oh and just to bring things full circle Cristina, she was raised in Jo-burg too!

I've been looking at the right4yourtypeau site - it's pretty much just products, is that right? I haven't got the login to work properly yet. It says Welcome, then it still says Login/Register at the top. Maybe it's supposed to...?

yes, the au site is mainly reference for products.  I use this website for info, even on products, and when it comes from ordering, I just phone or e-mail the NZ supplier (Gina).  
I am assuming you are talking about the login for the au website?  I do not log in there myself.  Did not know you had to.

I just saw the Login/Register button at the top right corner, and thought it would be like this site where you get access to loads more if you register. So I did, but I didn't notice anything different on the AU site. Maybe it just remembers your info for ordering purposes....
