Hi, I am new here: feels like and intruder, so be nice

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

 

I am an expat South African staying in sunny Perth. We have emigrated from Pretoria, South Africa 3 years ago and obviously been through some emotional times but I believe that Australia is now our home.

 

I had the privilege to live in New Malden, Surrey many years ago for about 8 months as part of a job contract. We had a fantastic time in the UK.

 

So what am I doing on this forum? Well first I stumbled on it (also britishexpats.com) and picked up on some of the threads. I am not sure if it is the Anglo Saxon blood, but I could see big similarities in the pain that some experience.

 

I hope to pose a few questions across the forum; it is always good to see it from others view points as well.

 

Regards

ottg

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

Howzit Boet don't worry there is a load of other Saffers here on PIO. Any way the Poms tolerate me(born and bred Saffer) so I would guess that they would tolerate just about anybody.

 

Its good to see another Saffer on the site !

 

Cheers

Hi, good to have you on here, the more the merrier i guess.

 

I live just down the road from New Malden in Surrey, it's alright... pretty grey and depressing though! we are off to SA in a couple of weeks to say good bye to the semi-saffer part of the family and then to Oz for good... final destination will be the best no doubt!

 

Good luck and happy threading.....

 

James...
