Default Brissybound is no longer bound!

We arrived safe and sound a couple of weeks ago and ive been lucky enough to have started work right away, although it hasnt left much time for socialising at the momment.

We move into oiur new flat in tenerife, the wool mills, next week so once get sorted will be keen to involve ourselves with any meet ups.

Unfortunately we have limited access to the internet just now but if whoever is organising anything would like to PM me a number then we can be kept in the loop that way, although hoping to be up and running in a couple of weeks.

First impressions of Brissy? Very impressed and we havent even scratched the surface so far. Unfortunately I havent managed to get the rod in the water yet, but hopefully soon.

Take care

Jamie

Thanks, yeah so far so good. Im really enjoying it so far and the missus thinks Brisbane is just a bigger Wellington, which is a relief as that is where she wanted to go.

Why has this been moved, as ultimately I was looking for some meet ups?

Where are you coming from Bernie? Yeah its a lovely spot, im a bit worried about the rules and regulations at these apartments though.

As much as I love peace and quiet on a schoolday I love to have people over playing music etc at the weekend. They seem quite strict in these apartments.

Well, it does read like more of an update, so perhaps that's why.

You could post a new thread in meet-ups looking for friends in Brisbane!

It was definitely read as an update SC is right. Check in the meetups, there's always one or two in Brissie - as you're obviously aware
