Recommended Posts

Guest FayeandKeith

Hi Everyone,

 

We arrived last Monday being bought over by my husbands new company - All good as we have had our visas for 3 years now and were planning to make the move on our own next year. All a lot easier having the comapny organise everything. Had a bit of a nightmare as my youngest has been so ill since we arrived we've had her at the hospital with a gastro virus - not a great start. I have two other kids Jude who is 6 and Rio who is 3 - Kaia is 1. Keith starts work on Monday and I am just dreading it, I have friends on the Gold Coast but no-one around Brisbane, have to entertain the 3 kiddies with out going mental myself. Cannot get them into nursery or school until we have a permanent address and we are in an apartment in the city for the next 3 weeks !!! AAgghhhh! Limited toys, small apartment, no friends.. Help! So happy to be here and love it so far just would love someone to chat to and hang out with and some friends for the kiddies. We thought we were going to Melbourne until 4 days before we left UK, then hubbys company had a change of hear at the last minute (though Brisbane was our first choice!). I had actually made contact with few moms on Melbourne but have had no time to do any research or make any contacts in Brisbane at all. Think I may be feling a tad lonely next week:unsure: Please get in touch if you are up for a meet up - sure any mom can relate - cheers for now Faye x

Hi Fay.

 

take a look at our sister site "Life In Queensland", I think there have been a couple of posts on there about newbies to Brisbane wanting to meet people.

You could always post on there asking about a possible meet up.

Hiya,

 

Just to let you know that there is a 'Brisbannittes' meet up this weekend in Springfield Lakes - It is on Sunday at 11am at Robelle Domain, we will be around the playground area and we have a banner now so should be easily identifiable. There will be quite a few families there from all over Brisbane and we are a lovely welcoming friendly bunch.

Hello there,

 

certainly can relate to going slightly crazy stuck in an apartment with kiddies, and we were only there for a short time. How are things going? We have two little girls. They loved South Bank and having trips on the river although controlling the youngest (nearly 2) on the boats was a bit of a headache.

 

If you are still looking to meet up with other mums then let me know. Might be able to loan you some extra toys as well - I know how difficult it can be without!
