Thanks guys for all your nice comments! Gill,she is going into year 9, even though she has just finished it in the UK, we thought it was better so she has more time to get used to the Australian education. Kim, she is looking forward to Monday, she takes everything in her stride so i have no worries about her. Say thanks to Kitch, thats really sweet of her! Fern has said she will definately be out her when her boyfriend has finshed his plumbing apprenticeship and with Davids contacts he will be able to get them both jobs.

Georgia will be staying here with us, finally made up her mind!! Si as you can imagine,i am one happy person! She will be starting Woodvale Senior High School on monday and has got a place on the soccer programme which she is well chuffed about! She likes what she has seen of the place so far and i think the climate will definately suit her outside lifestyle. Fern is still set on going back home at the end of next month,but i think if it was'nt for the 'boyfriend', she would be staying too.

cant believe its been half a year already since we arrived! how times flies.
well,fern and georgia arrived this week and we have been busy doing stuff with them,bit of rain never stopped us before! its actually been quite a nice week in between some of the showers and is not as cold as it was a couple of weeks ago. went to Yanchep again today but kangaroos were hiding today but koalas were out which pleased the girls! to be honest, havent found it that cold at all during the winter but do put the heater on in the lounge in the eveings. going to Rottness Island tomorrow for the day,a work collegues husband is a pilot and is taking us over on a 6 seater plane, so looking forward to that!
Still loving it here and have settled in really well in this new house,feels like home already even though we are 'just renters'! We still get a buzz going to the beach at Mullaoo and even in the winter it is just as beautiful,we try to have a walk along it once a week if we can. Dont think we will ever bore of it, But roll on the warmer weather as i do miss it! Still have lots of things we want to do and see,but slowly ticking them off the list,it really is a beautiful place. And cant wait to see the north of WA and visit the eastern states!
Made some more friends and went to a fab housewarming party a couple of weeks ago but got lost walking home! Still enjoying work (well,if you can enjoy it?!) Davids job is still going ok and Harry is doing well at school and is happy. Good times!
