When I came here 18mths ago I became a stay at home mom for the first time in 5yrs and wanted to make a wee bit of extra cash,so naturally I decided to knit some wollen gloves,scarves,hats etc.. to sell at the markets.As you do in 30c heat!!

To cut a long stort short I clacked away on the knitting needles for a few months with everyone laughing at me and telling me I was mad,then come winter went to the local market and sold the lot,$2,347 in one day.

Crazy?Nah. Who's laughing now?lol

 

And yes it does get bloomin cold.

Carole, I definately need to come over next week to give you a big hug then!!!

 

Things will be ok, trust me. I've been down too, cold getting to me too I guess. At least kids will be back next week so we can gossip again.

 

I keep telling myself it is still very beautiful to be by the sea and we have been given a wonderful opportunity - just takes far more work than we thought...

 

Keep your chin up hun xxx

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...

Carole,

As us Welsh say - 'there's lovely' - so keep repeating that over and over, a bit like a chant, and then maybe all will be well in the Evans household!! Failing that - lets get drunk!!!!! That will keep you warm for one night at least!!!!! Lyn

Winter Festival | Melbourne

 

I love my sunny Ozzie Xmas but I also feel that the melbourne winter needs something to break it up. There's free films nightly at docklands (rug up!) and free fireworks on a friday night there too.

 

Docklands Classic Film Festival Free Movies at Docklands Melbourne. Events, Entertainment at Docklands. Melbourne Docklands Melbourne Restaurants, Victoria, Australia

 

I came from the UK in May at the end of that long cold winter so making the best of the sunnier days here until Springtime.

 

It's either that or hibernate!

Have you thought about having a mid - winter christmas? I imagine they have them in oz, they do here in NZ all the time. Everyone gets together and has those winter christmases that you poms all so love! lol. You can go all ouit and do the presse thing, or just get together for all your favourite christmas goodies like malt wine and christmas ham or what ever you usually celebrate with in uk. It is alot of fun, and as you are all missing home, it would be a great way to share your traditions with each other. Just need someone to offer there place as a venue, and everyone bring their bit, like a 'plate' By the way, bringing a plate means 'bring some yummy food to share with all' I don't think you have this tradition in uk, or maybe you do, but don't call it. . .'bringing a plate'. You could have decorations, put up the tree that you must have stashed somewhere, play your fav christmas music, and have the best tackiest awesomest christmas do in Aus ever! :wink:

Oh Carole

 

I felt like you when I first arrived, the winter weather brings out the emotions as we feel it is nearing xmas and we are sitting in a damn rental that doesnt feel like our home with long faces. As for the employment side of it, you need certificates in just about everything, even to work in the bottle shop...

I think the earlier post about having an xmas in july might just be what you need, some hot yummy food, wine and beer and a laugh with people, and put the tree up cos it will more appropriate in this weather as it will come december.

Take care, speak soon
