Hi donna i know what your saying!!!! it is more expensive here we never manage to save any money..... you have to have a license for bloody breathing as for the aussies i thought they would have more of a sense of humour than they do....we've been here now nearly three years and we still have'nt made any real aussie friends they only seem intetrested in the friends they were brought up with and family....we have a few english friends...thank god for that!!!1 i think i would go mad otherwise.
yes there is more to life than hot weather!!!! mind you weve had a ****ty winter,,, the next time i hear anyone say we need the rain i will chin them!!!!
Like your husband mine loves it here...don't get me wrong i like it here..but i think it's a bit over rated...thank heavens for foxtel(stii watch coronation street and other brit stuff) anyway keep on smiling. x
Come on you wooses.......:pwe have come from a country that went to minus for days on end ....how can 13 deg and the odd 5 deg at night be cold....??, put another jumper on and stop all your winging;). Have had shorts on all winter at work and Iam a roofer.
bah when it was cold in the uk the houses had central heating and were built better to withstand the cold lol i just got used to the heat now and its freezing lmao
You need to go back to the UK. It's known as the "$10,000 experiment". I was the same, for the first 3 years I was like "This place is ****! Food is crap, nothing to do except go the beach, it's small, no decent pubs etc etc..." Then I went back to the UK for a 4 week Holiday, took my then Aussie wife and Daughter. The minute I got off the plane in the UK I wanted to get back on and just go back to AUS! In the car to my folks I just looked out the window and remembered what it REALLY was like to be back in the UK, how everything looked droll and grey, and was tiny. You need to experience that before you can really begin to appreciate Adelaide. If I had a choice tho, I'd probably live in Melbourne. I love the culture in Melbourne, it's a bigger City too. Still it's only a $50 plane trip away...
