Yep me, the oh and my 2 year old at the time arrived 20 years ago today, not knowing basically nothing about Adelaide, lonely, pooing our pants, thiking what the F##K have we done.
Them old days , no computer, skype internet, no mobiles, landline calls were massive to the UK, etc etc. Started work 2 weeks after arriving, leaving a miserable wife at home panicking, wanting to go back etc etc. But she turned it all around and has been like a rock determined to make a go of it whilst i was at work, whilst having a 2 year old with her.
5 houses later, yes 5, we made a few mistakes here and their, 4 expensive ones house wise, but we survived, have a great lifestyle now, good friends and now aged 22 my daughter is having her house built and her 17 year old brother doing really really well. My OH sometimes has the odd downer, don't we all, buts thats life.
Finally i take my hat off to my beloved, she's been lucky not to have worked in those 20 years and its been hard for her friend wise, but at least she gave it a go, and also to my 2 monsters at times !! onya
