  9. He's driving from St Ives to Killara to get the train the other way. He told me his next door neighbour in St Ives found a Funnel Web Spider in the shower! And I was going to tell him I'd seen my first cockroach of the season at Redleaf. Stopped off in East Sydney on my way home from the beach and got a lucky parking space at the bottom of Riley St and William St - Riley is a cul de sac there. Really impressed by all the restaurants and bars. Some of them I knew - the longstanding Italian ones Bar Regia? Bill & Tony's. Ventured into Westfield at Bondi Jn earlier to get a present for my niece - breaking my rule never to shop on a Sat arvo. Actually it wasn't too bad although the multi-level underground parking is a pain.

  14. Hey everyone, im new to this site, but came to Australia in March!! wish i had looked at this site sooner, so nice to see other people are having homesick days too. I came over with my partner, who is Australian, (we met in England about 2 and a half years ago) and his friends are lovely but he's known them years and i really miss having friends of my own....i know that sounds slightly strange!!lol I recently returned home for a month and it was fab to see all my family and friends again,but now ive returned i feel kinda lonely and outta place. I'm also pregnant now, baby is due in March 2010, which is hard some days without having my mum around. Anyways, i'd love to meet up with other people who have moved out here and make new friends. I'm 21 and am living in the Illawarra area, Albion Park way. Be really nice to get in touch with anyone who is near my way!!! thanks for reading, and hopefully i'll hear from you soon!! x
