  1. Hi My mother in law is coming to spend a year with us on a tourist visa. She has two cars at home and she was wondering about shipping one over. I know she can do it temporarily but that wouldn't be of interest is there anyway we can get it over? Or any idea how much it would cost? Thanks Hazel
  2. I don’t think it is right to turn others threads into a debate of the rights or wrongs of taking children away from 1 parent so i’ll start one of my own. We have 2 threads running at the minute, 1 by a father looking for advice on how to keep his children in the UK and the other by a mother looking to take her children away from their father. While the father is getting loads of support the mother is being attacked, why is that so? The father could be a right arse and just looking at ways to get back at his ex, but nobody has said that or asked any questions in that direction, we are just happy to offer positive support (the way it should be) But the mother..... how dare she want to start a new life!!!! Anyone with children going to Australia are taking them away from family, friends and their not being questioned or attacked, but somehow taking them away from a father WOW you can’t do that. Not interested in how good or bad the father is, it’s morally wrong! I can only talk for myself but we looked at it from all angles, are we doing the right thing? We spoke to our son about it, we tried to talk to Tracy’s ex and he wasn’t interested, it wasn’t as straight forward as stuff him lets go just to piss off Tracy’s ex. So when it come to asking questions on PIO, things like “what about the father” weren’t helpful, we had already thought about that. How many people have really thought about the impact the move will have on their children and family members? I bet people that have and are trying to take their children away from their other parent have thought long and hard about it. IMHO if you have no support or real advice to offer then don’t say anything, because you’re not helping! Taking children away from another partner is a very stressful thing to do, it’s a long process that’s very costly and I know myself we had loads of questions about the processes involved and not to many people would offer advice in the open because of the grief they would get off other members so it was all done via PM.
  3. Just wondering if there are any new mums out there? We've been here 6 weeks now and our son Charlie is 4 months old. We've been meeting loads of australian people at mothers groups etc and it's great to have oz friends and everyone's been really really lovely. However, if there are enough of us I thought it might be nice to start a UK mums "mothers group" to meet every so often to share what we have learnt about oz, places to go with kids, things to do etc. we're based in caulfield (sort of inner south east) but have a car so can travel. Any mums welcome even if your kids are a bit older. Any dads welcome too of course. Looking forward to meeting up soon. Sheryl (and Charlie)

    Mothers day Plant & flower sale

    Hope its OK to promote this on here :wink: Next Saturday at the Monbulk RSL, the local cubs & scouts are holding their annual Mothers day plant & flower sale. There is always an excellent range of plants all at the right price donated by all the local growers, and I am organizing cut flowers for bouquets for all the mums again from all the local growers here in the hills, so you can really give mum a treat without breaking the bank. There is also a sausage sizzle and in the RSL itself they are holding an indoor market. If you have nothing to do next Saturday, why not pop up to the hills for a lovely day out and support our boys and girls at the same time. :hug: hope to see a few of you there next week.

    Happy mothers day to all you wonderful women out there, I hope you will all be spoiled rotten today! My thoughts go to those who have lost their Mum or little ones today, and to those who are far far away from theirs. I hope you all get time to relax and enjoy x

So if you are expecting or know somebody that is, do get in touch and you can have as little or as much help as you need Enjoy the rest of your pregnancy !!
  10. After 6 full on weeks in oz, I have moved in to Buderim with my familly. Older kids have just started school at Buderim Moutain SS this week (fingers crossed that has gone well). However, I'm suddenly missing all my friends in the Uk and I am not sure where to go with my 3.5 year old during the day. Any suggestions welcome. Or if anybody looking for company and fun with toddlers give me a shout. Donna

  12. Hi, My mothersgroup has sadly fallen flat on its face as everyone seems has returned to work on different days!! I am really keen to meet some new friends on either Mondays or Fridays in the Manly area. My daughter is 18 months old. We emigrated to Sydney in 2004 from St Albans. Anyone expat mums out there in the same boat?? Cheers, Karen

  15. I would just like to say a really big thank you to Snow White and her family for a lovely day on sunday. She made everyone so welcome to her home including those who came along that she did'nt know where coming (whoops my fault) and those she had never met before. We had only met her and her family a couple of times before then but have overwhelmed by her kindness and generosity. She's also pretty knowledgeable about the plumbing license regulations over here, which has helped our friends over here. So once again Snowie thanks for a great time:hug::notworthy: Sue xxxx

    UK Mothers Day

    Just had a tip off from my brother in UK that Mothering Sunday is 22nd March. I've discovered Hipcards | greetings by design which have a few options and is quite refreshing as I was getting a bit bored of Moonpig. I think they get a lot of their cards from UK, so much better than what you get here. I'm not aware of any other online greeting card sites in Oz, does anyone know any others?

    Mothers group

    Hi, my name is Wendy and in about 3 weeks time will be moving to Pacific Pines in the Gold Coast. I am living in Wellington Point now and have a 28 month old boy and just wanted to know if anyone knew of a Mothers group/playgroup in the area or surrounding. I am apart of the UK Mothers group already in Wellington Point but probably won't get to the meets once I move. I will be working Mon - Wed so a Thurs/Fri group would be good so I can meet ladies in the area and start building friends. Can anyone help?? Thanks, Wendy

    Mothers Day (UK) 2nd March

    Hiya, I know this has come up on another thread (re Fathers Day), just wanted to add this, in case anyone missed it, so no-one forgets! Saw an advert when checking my hotmail account a few days ago for interflora or something, and I'd completely forgotten. I've ordered some flowers from Asda to be delivered to mine and my husbands mothers, (cos I'm fancy- Asda!). For those of us who have only recently left, this will be our mums first mothers day without us, and they deserve to know we haven't forgotten them.:wubclub: Jo
