yip how r u finding oz ?
Hi newypomme, Welcome to Oz! We are also both 40 with 8 year old daughter and 4 month old son and have been here 16 months.
We live in Southern River which is not too far from you.
I am a stay at home mum so if you want to meet up, please get in touch x
I have to be honest, its Beautiful, but we are finding it difficult, with our daughter still in the uk, and the boys miss their friends and family, as do we, but you feel their pain worse We want to remain positive though, and give it our best shot How have you found it ?
Hi! CKR, Thanks yes, that would be great, its prob best to organise meet through pm, but I am new to this site and not sure how to do it, maybe u know? Are you enjoying Oz? Did you settle quite soon, or is it an ongoing process ? I'm sure it prob takes time

We are loving oz! It does take a while to settle but luckily we have met some lovely friends and neighbours and that definitely helps. My daughter settled in really well into her school and hardly ever mentions any of her UK friends now.
Skype has really helped as we can talk to grandma so she can see her growing up and has said how different our daughter is - so full of confidence and outgoing when she used to be shy!
We have just started building a house and have no plans to return to the uk, our family would prefer to come here to visit for a holiday anyway which is good!
Will send you my phone number so we can arrange to meet up x
