nearly our 1 year anniversary!
06 Dec 2009
well guys, its coming close to the 1 year anniversary! yes we have really been here 11 months already where does the time go?! still loving our life here and really making the most of living in a sunny place with a fab beach on our doorstep. i have passed my driving test and david bought me my first car, i must say i am turning into a proper aussie driver!! we are off to melbourne to visit my eldest brother in february and then in march toruing round the south coast to esperance for 2 weeks which we are so looking forward to! cant wait to explore further north in the future! hoping to go for permanent resdidency in the new year and then look into buying our own place, very keen to build our own but maybe not in woodvale, bit pricey for us as we intend to keep our house in UK too. kids still doing well at school and made lotas of friends, especially proud of Georgia who came here at 14.5 years, not an easy age . shes settled really well , has made some nice friends and got a couple of babysitiing jobs locally and has improved her bodyboarding skills amazingly! (as we all have) We love making the most of what living here has to offer and would say to anyone thinkning of coming here to do it! although i appreciate its not for everyone, but for us, the outdoor lifestyle, the beach and the laid back attitude here really has made the move well worth doing.
