Happy Australia Day!!

Posted on January 26, 2010 at 12:21 0 Comments

Today I celebrated my first Australia Day as an Aussie…. and I felt immensely proud to raise up the Australian flag (ok – it was a cheap hand-held one from the Dollar Tree… and it was actually attached to my esky – not raised up high on a pole) BUT the point is, I felt pretty darn ‘true blue’ as I knocked back the amber nectar with my nearest and dearest on the beach.





We all had a great day floating about on giant inflatable thongs,… Continue

The science of the surf…

Posted on November 30, 2009 at 10:24 0 Comments

OK, going by that title, you would be mistaken for thinking that I’m some sort of ocean expert/marine specialist…



…. but obviously I’m not.



However, I have just been talking to someone who is very knowledgeable about that sort of thing, and I felt it was of utmost importance to deliver the information to you!



I have just this minute come back from watching my 12 year old son battle with the surf whilst he was on one of his weekly school ’surf… Continue

Sunshine Coast Bush Fire...

Posted on September 25, 2009 at 3:49 0 Comments

A couple of weeks ago on a Saturday night, I had just donned my pyjamas and removed my contact lenses in favour of my thick and unattractive glasses, when the evening suddenly turned from a comfy night in front of the TV, to an action packed adrenaline rush of madness.



No sooner had I got the children in their beds, than I received several text messages from my friends… telling me to look out of my window… So once I had unpacked the dishwasher, clipped my toenails and organised the… Continue

Mother’s Day in MAY!

Posted on May 25, 2009 at 14:13 3 Comments

This blog is dedicated to all the mothers of children who are living over here in Oz….



Please don’t feel rejected by your heartless children on Mothers Day back in March, when your gift or card didn’t arrive… it’s simply because the UK and Australia celebrate this occasion on different days.



So we are sorry that you sat gazing at the letterbox, awaiting the gentle landing of your Mothering Sunday card onto the hall mat…



… or if you watched eagerly as the… Continue

Australia's frequent festivals

Posted on May 14, 2009 at 11:24 0 Comments

Australia is host to many different festivals and carnivals - probably the most famous being Sydney’s flamboyant Mardi Gras and Melbourne’s International Comedy Festival, to name just a few.



But last week, we attended Australia’s leading regional Food and Wine Festival in Noosa.



Although I love great food, and I have definitely be known to partake in the odd bottle of wine or three, the reason why we decided to check this festival out was for the live… Continue

Thanks again very helpful, really clearing up questions we don't know the answer too. Only two months to go counting the days. I'm sure we will have more questions as the days go by. Thanks again.

I impressed with this level of service from just buying your book. Rosie my wife has just finished it and it's given us lots to talk about, we have just accepted an offer on our house so thing really starting to happen. Thanks for the apartment info I have just emailed them. Sorry to bother you with another question but schools. Do we just land and walk into a school to enroll or should we be contacting schools now, it's a bit difficult as we don't know where we are going to be living. 2 of our children are 8 and 16 the 16 year old has just finished GCSE this week.It's funny as soon as one major issue is resolved eg. the house, we find something to replace it with. Still this is what we wanted a bit of excitment back inour lives. Thanks again for your help. Let me know if I need to buy another copy of your book to cover the cost of this information. All the best, by the way it's 24 oC here at the moment typical, we are moving away for better weather then the UK inproves. Regards Richard
