Mother of 3 looking for new friends on the Gold Coast....

Recommended Posts

Guest Teeny

Hi all,

My name is Tina and I am married with three children, ages 6yrs old and twins of 5yrs. We have been on the Gold Coast for three years and I have met some lovely people, but they all seem to move on! We moved from the UK in 1998 to New Zealand which was wonderful, then after nine years and three kids, we moved back to the UK, only stayed 18 months and came back down under to Australia. We've moved around a lot but have now finally settled, it's still so hard to find good friends and even harder if you're a stay at home mum, especially as the twins start Prep this year!

So if you're close by, fancy a chat or to meet up, i would love to hear from you......:laugh:

Hi Tina, We're in Pimpama, hoping to buy near Helensvale in the next month or 2. I've got a 7 year old boy and near 6 year old girl. Now I do work, but always happy to meet at the weekends with the kids. We've been here since last April. Just sold our house in the UK so hence nearly ready to buy. We love the Gold coast. Hope to meet 1 day. Take care, yes where abouts are u ??? I work down at Robina so getting to know the area. x Helen

hello there

 

I am not on th gold coast at the moment but wanted to say hello. WE lived on the Gold Coast for a year and came back to UK in 2008 (biggest mistake of our lives) we are now sorting ourselves out to come back.

 

Have decided that our deadline date will be september 2013

 

Our daughter is 4 and will be starting UK school this year. we didnt want to come any earlier as we didnt want to take her out of school and back into kindy or day care!

 

We still have loads to sort out but we know what to expect when we get there. So excited Its going to be so hard getting through the next year and 9 months! but we have to get it right this time.

 

We are going to be heading to Arundel on the Gold Coast so may see you there in a couple of years!!!

Hi Helen, thanks for your post, we live in Carrara not far from either places Pimpama or Helensvale and I certainly know where Robina is, as I spend alot of time shopping there!

I hope all go's well with the move, it can be very stressful, but I think living in such a wonderful makes the burden a little less to bear, than if we were back in the UK. I too will be hopeful working this year again once the kiddies start back at school, but stay in touch and once you have settled we could meet for a coffee. Thanks again Tina X

Hi, Thanks for your post and I can only totally feel for you, as we did the same thing after being in NZ for nine years, thinking I was so home sick we went back to the UK!! Only lived back there for 18 months until we came back here. We were lucky that we can do that, it is such a wonderful place to live and I do agree that things must be done right as it is such a long process anyway.

 

I have a friend that lives in Arundel, when I first came here I joined a playgroup up there, it's a nice place to live. Stick with it, I know it's hard after everything we went through, it is so worth it, we all have a great life here now.

 

All the best, take care and see you in a few years!!!! It will pass very quickly x
