    How much do you love Perth?

    How much do I love perth ? Love Perth ...it has been home to my family for 19 months :wink: and we are staying ! Love the people , the places( yes there are lots of places to see , I don't mean shops or bars lol ) Nature at its best . I love how my children call this their home now , Perth has so much to offer , in business, family time, so much to do if you open your eyes !

    <p><p>Hey Brides</p></p>

    <p><p>Hope you, hubs and the family are all settling well?</p></p>

    <p><p> </p></p>

    <p><p>Judging by one of your previous posts there is a chance you were actually on the same flight as us into Perth. We arrived with Singapore on the afternoon of the 15th March. It's been a bit of a rollercoaster over the last ten weeks or so but it feels like we are starting to settle now.</p></p>

    <p><p>We have moved into a house in Mindarie after staying with family in Iluka for eight weeks. It doesn't feel like home yet but is getting there slowly.</p></p>

    <p><p> </p></p>

    <p><p>If you all are ever up in the northern suburbs give me a shout and maybe we can arrange a family meet up.</p></p>

    Hi , Spudshed was a godsend lol all veggies from there and also meat and tinned toms ( we eat alot of spicey food and use toms as a base ) :rolleyes: wish i kept my receipts now ,i will next week . :huh:oh and tin's of beans from there are cheaper . Also i have found chickens in the fresh sections are tiny ! so i have found chickens in the freezer coles 2.8 kg has no hormones added etc that can get a few meals out of it . :huh: I also grab anything thats half price etc like from coles huge bag of basmati half price . My hubby makes his own tamyam soap noodles for lunch to take to work . Another thing i do is i don't buy the kids cartons drinks to buy ( seems alot of people do ) i buy the the natural co cordial ( with no sugar added ) and that makes 9 litres and the kids drink that in their own bottles . Same as crisp i buy the big bags and i separate in to small zips bags ( oh gawd i sound like a scrooge lol im not i was like this in the uk lol ) :biggrin: Dried beans too ( as a family we love them ) , i will say steak etc we have cut down on the red meat alot here , bulk out with more veggies but thats not a bad thing . I'll try to remember to keep the receipt next time i go x
