Is it all Liverpool fans that are moving out here? Not any Celtic fans.

Hiya Paddy,

I think I am addicted already, once the babies go to sleep im straight back on, sad hey! you would think I have nothing better to do...but Im making friends with fellow buddies and what can be more important than that.

Unfortunately the only bottles ive got beside me are the babies milk bottles..

Hiya,

glad you have settled in fine, must be great to finally be there and be settled!

Im not sure whether or not that is me your friend knows, I don't know any one from Birmingham...
Then again thinking about it I have been e-mailing someone living in Currimundi who was from Birmingham, he had 2 young boys!! if it was him he was very helpful

Keep in touch and we will meet soon

Good luck with selling your home, and I can't wait to meet you all

The library is good and Kings beach with the swimming pool.

Hi there,

I just loved Kings beach, it was fab! never checked out the library but a good idea to go with kids.

We went to the RSL for information on what they do but never actually went their, will do when we get back though

yep kings beach was great and i loved the pool with 4 small kids i felt safe bringing them there on my own in the day. especially with the lifeguards .

the library is very child friendly has a play station and a big children's section.

Im back home in Ireland now I got very homesick and lack of work for my DH but Caloundra was the best of the 3 places we lived in on the sunshine coast

If i can answer any questions Ill do my best though

Hi there,

You were brave with 4 kids on the beach on your own!

Sorry to hear you went back home, but I can imagine its no joke being homesick, something I will be dealing with soon or hopefully not!

Caloundra seemed a great place when we went there, really child friendly and everyone seemed so helpful

Hope it all works out well for you in Ireland, bet your family are happy to see you again...and thankyou for offering your help in answering any questions I may have, I will get back to you,

How long where you out there?

Take care

I bet you got even more homesick once you had your daughter out there, its a time you want your family around you.

I agree with having no regrets, it beats sitting there saying "I wish we had of done that" thats why we have decided to give it a go, if its not for us then atleast we tried.

Take care and it was nice chatting to you xx
