Were is everyone meeting? Do we have to report anywhere?

Hi Jill, well most of us are going dressed as kangaroos to make sure we get noticed. So just put on your best roo suit and we'll find you. Hopping will also help! (someones bound to fall for it sooner or later me thinks!)

See you there.

Unfortunately we're not gonna be able to make the meet afterall

My daughter is in a drama production tonight and due to the cast having to go in for a last minute rehersal mid afternoon, it's just not possible for us to make it back to Liverpool in time, especially because there's a parade in Liverpool today and all traffic is being diverted:curse:

Have a great time everyone, i'm sure we'll still be around for the next one!!!

Thanks madcityfan on organising the meet. We really enjoyed it. As quite a few of you were going to Brisbane, we are going to do some further research. We are also going to now consider renting if we can't sell - thanks for the tips.

The very best of luck to all of you, and I'm sure you'll all have fab lives over in OZ.

Cheers Caroline x

Hi Mad city Fan,

Just wanted to say really enjoyed Saturday & the kids loved it to! It really does help being able to chat to others who are experiencing the same things. Met some lovely people but didn't get chance to speak to everyone, maybe at the next one now we have conquered our first meet!!!

Good luck everyone with house sales & visa's!

We just want to say thanks MadCity fan for organising the meet. We really enjoyed meeting people in the same boat.
We also didnt get chance to speak to everyone (cos we felt silly making the first move) but if there is another meet, we will be brave next time.

Thanks
Warren, Jill
