Ello Claire, :)
Remember me from Britishexpats? (Jam76) We used to chat on there via posts and threads. Carrie think she briefly saw you when the Burnside was interviewing in Manchester.
Well as you might well guess, we finally made it over here. Carrie got that job in the oncology unit and she is loving it. The staff are lovely and welcoming and her manager and the senior nurse she works with are great characters to. The environment is more relaxed also which is exactly what she was looking for.
We've been here 4 weeks now and it feels like longer? Mad I know. We're enjoying it alot so far but like you said I think the first 6 weeks feel like holiday time although I am in the middle of getting a job and as you might know that ain't a holiday or picnic!
I just read your thread and kudos and congrats for making it this far considering some of your awful events/circumstances that have occured. I hope the next 6 months for you are a helluva lot more stress free.
I see you're way out in Seaford? We're staying in the CBD and it seems like a million miles away on the map in comparison.
Staying at a lovely hostel (can you believe I said lovely and hostel in the same sentence! lol) but seriously, the people here are great and alot of them work to. It also keeps us stay entertained as alot of people who come out here tend to find themselves lonely without friends and fam around them and we thought that it wouldn't help the homesickness if that were to happen to us.
Just want to wish you all the best for the future, for you, the fella and the little un and a happy new year to.
Maybe we'll cross paths if you come to any of the meetups or the ones that Suzer organises. We'll be at the one at the Griffinshead this week.
