A big G'Day to all you bloggers up there in the northern hemisphere!! Hope you're all rugged up with the cold spell.
We've been sweltering in the heat here, up til this week, wet and cool in Sydney now! What a change. I'm sure you've all heard about the devastating bush fires in Victoria, so many lives and homes have been lost, it even brought Kevin Rudd to tears. And the opposite is the case in north Queensland with the flooding, also devastating. We need pipes bringing the water down south I reckon.
I moved here, to Sydney, almost 5 years ago, with my other half and 3 kids. I live on Sydney's Northern Beaches, such a beautiful area. My husband transferred from Ireland with his work, and the kids were 3 months, 5years and 8 years at the time. I think our respective families thought we were crazy or brave or both, moving here with 3 young kids, especially when I'd never been here even for a holiday! My husband had been in the merchant navy and had stopped off here from time to time. Anyway, we're all well settled now, kids turning into little Aussies. The younger two are in primary school and my older daughter's in high school.
If anyone has any questions about the whole moving/settling in thing or just want to know what day to day life is like, and what the Aussies are like(not all Bruce and Sheila!!), I will do my best to help out.
