I'd rather get old(er) watching the waves on pebbly Brighton beach than sandy Gold Coast.
After 16 years I know that every day I am here I feel a little more of an alien.
Hey Pollyanna I hear you over the climate....I’m on the sunny coast & am hating the bloody humidity!! I’m not a beachy person...only ever go there to take the dog! Am looking to move to Melbourne soon...am yearning for some ‘seasons’ instead of permanent inferno or just plain bloody hot...haha...think I’m a whinging Pom

I’m good!!! Being made redundant...but hey...hence the move..there’s not much work up here so thought why not make another change? I don’t know Melbourne at all, in fact I’ve only been once and that was back in 2003 when we came to validate our visas. My thoughts are, if I hate it..I’ll just come back to the sauna....

How are you HUP, you really went through it back in the day.
I moved out in 2003 with Mark to Sassafras and came back to the UK after a break down in our marriage. Now I'm remarried and moving back to Aus 😁 (if the girls will come)
Why are you moving back Pollyanna?
Hey, first time in ages...
Saw Hevs at a wedding last year.
;-)
