Well it's been along time, so time to update.........
Been here nearly 3.5 years, still living SOR, renovated the house, removed the 6 gum trees from the gardens, enough is enough, when the storms comes, huge branches dropping in the roof!. So started on the back yard!, making room for the pool, not sure when that will happen, but we are working on it. Have a lovely veggie garden, growing everything, thanks to my dad and hubby.
Purchased a camper trailer, have great fun, I'm not a camper, but this is great, I even take my M&S bedding and pillows, at least twice a month in the summer we got away. Home from home, and cheap.
Both working hard, have good jobs, ensuring we have quality family time at the weekends, to make up for the busy week days. Ollie doing great at school, had tonsils removed March 2012, plays soccer for the school, joined surf rescue in the summer at the local beach.
Looking at going back to the UK, next year, need to return. See if we are missing it, miss the people, but then I look outside to the blue sky, even though its now winter!, with a warm 20degree temp. Lifes not that bad, :)
