  1. Hi I am 37 and moving over to Sydney in Feb with my husband and two daughters aged 4 and 3 and would love to meet up with other mums with young children as soon as we can. Until mid-march we will be living in an apartment then plan to rent in the Hills District. Now that Christmas and New Year has passed reality is kicking in that soon I will be over there with no friends or family to chat to or meet up with. I am really looking forward to moving but also anxious about being lonely for a while. Mind you my girls will keep me going! If anyone in a similar position or has suggestions for playgroups in the Hills District please get in touch. Thanks Lisa

  4. Hi there, we have just moved to Launceston from the UK and have now been here just over 2 weeks. I have a 2 year old daughter and would love to meet up with other mums for play days, taking kids to the park or even just a coffee, at the moment my social life is non-existent, with my partner working full time I'm finding it a struggle to keep my daughter occupied. Thanks Jaime-Leigh :biggrin:

    1 week to go...

    Hello all, I have one week left in the UK. Tracking my worldy goods across the world. Very lucky to have relatives to stay with early doors. But in need of friends, job, home, car etc. It is a very worrying moment. Leaving my job of 11 years. Words of advice great received. My son loves Pre-school will come over to nothing as 3 and half so no school as I understand it until 6 in Queensland, when all his friend will be starting reception. I need sloution to this problem I hope there is things we can do that will not cost to much. I'm worried about his social side as an only child. He is already starting to play up. I'm worried but excited too. So long to get to this point, things have changed so much from when we started and got the visa, being well off to really just about getting by if the exchange does perform a miracle, what with the drop in house prices and of course giving up a well paid jobs for potientally nothing at the moment. It is that once in a lifetime moment we hope we get right. Very costly if not. My husband is a very skilled electronics engineer in avonics. So any leads would be good. Our drem to build a RV10 4 seater. The reality at the moment to find a rental and a car and work out the rest from there. Any help/social contact particularly those with younger children would be most helpful. Thanks Sarah (34), Tony (40), Ryan (3) :chatterbox:

    Toddlers on flights

    I know there have been a lot of threads about how to cope with young children on flights but I'm still a bit confused! We will be flying to Adelaide with my 22 month old son next month with Cathay Pacific. We have booked a seat for him and hope he'll sleep most of the way. However, it seems that we're unable to use any approved car seat we had hoped to take on the flight from HK - Adelaide because they do not fit in the Airbus seats. Does this mean that everytime the seatbelt sign goes on we have to disturb him/wake him and place him on my lap? Any advice please?
  15. Hi Everyone. I was wondering what you all did when it came to your toddlers food, on long haul flghts. Inflight meals aren't the most desirable at the best of times, and trying to get a toddler to eat them...Hmmmm, plus the price of them for what they are is ridiculous. My dilema is, would I be aloud to take food on to the flight, if yes, ow much,...you are on the plane for the equivalent of a day, unless you have a stop off. Can anyone relate to what it is Im saying.....xx :cute:

    Spiders and toddlers

    Hi all We've been in our garden alot lately with all the good weather we had in Devon last week and its got us thinking how do we educate our 2/3 year old about spiders/snakes in oz without fear of scaring him. We catch him picking up bugs/spiders all the time. This is the last thing we want him to do in oz. Has anyone else had this thought?
