    Making friends

    I think what has been said is right - friendships develop over time and they cannot be rushed or sort. When we first decided to emigrate our intention was to move to Rockingham/Safety Bay and have a life by the sea. I reality the work my OH does is far more cental and NOR so we have ended up living in Bayswater a city suburb very quiet and so far from what I seen . Now my husband has started work and we wait for the house we will be moving into to be ready I have a sudden feeling of loneliness and wonder if I will be able to find people other then my children for company. Things are not helped with staying somewhere we cannot call a home. I don't feel the need to concentrate on Brits friendships, and to be honest all the ones I have been in contact with are probably living to far away from us for regular meet ups. Its just a case of getting out there, school, the library, toddler groups and hopefully even some adult clubs are going to be the start of things and see where things develop. Back in England I could count my real true friends on one hand and my OH the same, we are a very tight little family, one of the reasons making the move over here easier. I can strike up the conversation easily enough, but at what point do you say to someone you've met in the playgroup, do you want my number? ;-) Give it time it will happen. I hope ...Est :-)

    Nothing much today. Saw an old friend for lunch, probably for the last time before we fly next month (i can't help it I love saying that :biglaugh:) and of course watched WDU, shame it was NZ but they were a nice family :-) Chandi1 - good luck with your daughters tests but I'm sure it will be just procedure n won't impact on anything Est

    I loved your last post re quitting your job and making your validating trip permenant - fantastic good your you guys. We have car boots sales around here running Saturdays and Sundays at the moment, must be to shift all those unwanted christmas pressies!!! not sure what they are like yet though and we are in Shrewsbury, Shropshire so a bit of a long way to come from Somerset :biggrin: Est

    An Emotional Day!

    Hi Sherbet - I'm sorry you had such an emotional day yesterday it is tough. I saw my mum yesterday and you could tell she's been crying even before we arrived. Whatever the subject in a conversation now comes around to us leaving and how much she will miss the children - it is so heart breaking, but she supports the move and we have to give it a go otherwise we may always regret it. We've got just over 6 weeks to go now and like you have been organising nights out and a leaving party - suddenly the weeks are full of visits to family and friends and time seems so short now. On the plus side my son who is four crept into our bed this morning and we just chatted about the flight to Oz and what we'll do when we arrive which was so nice :-D

    Is it just us?

    Yes we noticed that the poms out numbered the Aussies there - we loved Freemantle but not sure if we could afford it up there - we spent alot of time travelling up the Freemantle while we were there and our son loved the prison (we have to visit twice). Still as you say R & SB are nice areas and a good place to start plus it is familar to us. So pleased you guys are loving the new life so much Est
