Gosh we've come a long way from 4 around a solitary table!

We certainly have but I remember it well!
Me wingeing about my house sale falling through again, Claire talking about maybe getting a job, oh hang on she's still doing that , you checking out every boat in the marina deciding which one to buy first (how many you got now?!) and Sue always being so chilled and laid back and keeping the rest of us from turning into complete loons
Happy Birthday us

Happy 1st Birthday and hope there'll be many more!

Sue and I can't make it tomorrow because the kids have their sports day, so we'll have to sit around all day waiting to cheer them on!

Hope you have a good day and can someone take a video for us if there is going to be a big suprise, don't want to miss it!

Any other newbies who have just arrived or old hands that are feeling a bit lonely, join us for a fab celebration!

Can't believe it's been a year already! Counted up the contacts I have and they amount to 30! Gosh we've come a long way from 4 around a solitary table!

Thanks to everyone that turned up to celebrate out first birthday! We had a great time and the Wanneroo times took a fab photo! We are featured in the Joondalup times this week, page 21, so maybe a few newbies who dont use this forum will see the article and come down to join us. I am currently trying to source a new venue for the group as Dome are struggling to accommodate us, I will keep you all posted.

Just to let everyone know that due to the expected numbers over the school holidays the Expats meet that usually takes place at Hillary's will now take place at Neil Hawkins Park. The Dome cafe struggles enough with the numbers at the moment let alone us plus children! Also the park has play equipment etc to keep the kids happy. There are bbq facilities there for those that want to cook, otherwise bring a picnic. Dont forget the sunflower seeds for the birds!!

12 noon

B*ll*x! We went to Hillarys today We asked the staff, and they said they hadn't seen pommy group today

Didn't know it had changed, as we have only been here since Monday, and we don't manage to get on the net very often Never mind.

Neil Hawkins park is not far from where we are.

Will it be in the same place next week, as we would love to come?

Oh that is such a pity.Welcome to Perth. As far as I know it is in the same place next week. Well I know that a good few of us decided we would be back next week.In the meantime if you just fancy a coffee or chat pm me your details and I will give you a call to arrange something.

Just to confuse matters - a few of us are still heading for the park today (feeling brave and hoping it stays dry!)
