Well been here just over 6months in Brisbane, Bellbowrie western suburbs, Its gone so fast, but all very happy and settled into our new life just fine, Oh really enjoying his job even flew to Mckay for work purposes the other week and could be going to Adelaide and melbourne in the near future meeting customers so hes happy. My Eldest son is loving his course at tafe hes doing graphic design and doing so much better there than the course in Manchester, I'm so glad as this course is costing us quite a bit, the one in uk was free. He has a gilfriend, and her mum asked me to go round for a cuppa, and have been round for bbq's also can pop round for a girlie chat and a cuppa n cake which is what i missed.Youngest son is also happy at high school and has made loads of friends there, he was the one that didn't want to come over here and criedeverytime oz was mentioned, we sat down the other day and i asked the boys were they settled here and missed uk and both said they didn't want to go back, so all is well. I myself have had a couple of occations of feeling sadness not missing uk but felt lonely, missed my girlfriends the banter you have with other girls, like jo said in one of her threads you can sit in a cafe and something will come to you and you so want to share it. But have taken up swimming every morning at our local outdoor pool, how cool is that
We have bought some land and they are starting to build our house by the 5th December so fingers crossed we'll be in it at Easter or there abouts.
We have our First rellies coming over in just under 2weeks time OH Parents so have given them a list of thing to bring over, Cadburys choc, Galaxy Choc Buttons and Hair colours for me as there so expensive here, They are here till 3rd Jan so should help with any feelings of loneliness at christmas and new year.
Cant say i have missed uk, and i speak everyday to my sister on web cam and several times to parents via web cam and skype, but my youngest brother and his wife had their first baby in sept and i wish i could have a cuddle of her, they have sent photos on the computer so i will have to settle for this.
Sadly we cant make this meetup in Dec as got rellies over and are taking them to the Bundy Mountains for the weekend. Hope i've not bored you all to much.
Everyone good luck.
