Hi all. just thought I'd update our status, probably for the last time.
I'm still in WAPol and Julie still with Silver Chain.
My eldest is now 19 (15 when we arrived) and works for mining company as a Health & Safety Advisor and has just moved in with his girlfriend to an apartment in Mandurah.
My youngest, 17 (12 when he arrived) leaves school in the next few months and wants to do an Electrician apprenticeship. He now teaches Mauy Thai and is learning to drive.
We've lost a number of friends over the past 4 years, some to remote communities through work, but mostly back to the UK, can understand the pull but not tempted at all - although do still miss some things!
Thanks to all over the past couple of years for the support and encouragement, this is an excellent site and great source of information too.
