Default Friends you've made....

Hi guys,

Was just thinking about BE and how it helps people to make friends. Have you found this to be the same or is it the Vino talking!

Cheers

Ginny

I love this site, it keeps you going when you're really pee'd off with all the waiting.

Although my hubby hates it and complains constantly. He thinks I've got a cyber-lover ( I wish )

I agree with you there wholeheartedly. My laundry basket is overflowing coz the couple of hours I've come online to job search has somehow trebled once I've logged in here Have got sooo much useful info and crossed paths with such friendly pple, who appreciate and understand the rollercoaster that is emigrating. I've joined other forums which are ok but this is definitely the cream of the crop

I've joined other forums too, but they don't compare at all. I even recommended this site to a friend of mine that's just started the process. I don't know how I coped before I found this site. Which was well after we got the TRA back.

Ginny,

We have met and made lots of friends thanks to this site.
Two families in particular we have become really good friends with, 12 months down the line.
They both happen to live in Noosa like us and we get together often.
