Re: How "Australian" do you feel.

Re: POLL: EU Expats - Who's for returning to the UK?

I can relate to this and feel a similar way after 24 years living in Australia. I'm not sure what my third country would be - possibly Canada, as my partner is from there.

Re: When does it get easier? Unhappy in Michigan.

I live in Australia, but originally from Liverpool. I've had Irish a few times (not unreasonable), and Kiwi a few times too.

Re: Goodbye Friends Reunited...

I used it in the early days and reconnected with an old school friend who had also moved to Australia.
I haven't thought about it at all in years and didn't realise it was still around.

Re: I LOVE Australia but my husband HATES it.

When you made the decision to move to Australia, were you both enthusiastic about it or did your hubby agree to it because it was your dream? Just curious because if it was the latter, then maybe...

Re: Australia is too bloody far away....from everything

Perth used to have the honour of being the hottest place, but Adelaide has stolen the crown. I suppose we have to have something to brag about.;)

I just got back to SA after a lovely Christmas in England, to be confronted with 40 + temperatures and an out of control bushfire burning north east of the city. Welcome home from Adelaide...
