Tomorrow's our 6th month anniversary since we arrived, and we're having a great time. Mr L enjoys his job, I enjoy my new change of direction!

I turned 30 and managed to cope with the trauma of it all, inspite of Mr L being my wee toyboy! It helped soften the blow, when he proposed that night!

So for anyone looking for a little happiness in Oz....it is feasable!!

Ps. this is our new entertainment area and pool, with ickle water fall, and (my favourite bit!), a spa-jet seat!

Looks fantastic!
glad everything is going great for you ,you lucky things!!

A 'hornbag' a word used in the Kath & Kim programme, which everyone in the U.K has now gone mad about, as it has just started to be aired over here.

I have been watching it for over 2 years now, and I must admit, it is Hilarious

It's a wonder you haven't seen it on TV...They actually film it in Melbourne...

Well may lose internet access for a couple of days :scared: , but gotta get back to the cleaning.....ya think a hoose looks clean when you view it....it's scary when you see it again empty!!
