Suppose I should put my hand up and confess to being another Essex Girl! Last lived in Hatfield Peverel, just outside Chelmsford in Essex, grew up just outside Brentwood. My Mum comes from Dagenham and husband worked there for many years (and Halewood, and Swansea, and Basildon - guess who he worked for ;))
When you come to Adelaide, we'll have an Olde Essex meet up!!
Well, I'm a REAL Essex girl. Born and Bred! Don't know if I should be bragging about that.........
We are from Benfleet in Essex, (near Sarfend!) and are hoping to be moving to Adelaide in Feb next year, all going to plan........
Half of Essex seems to be moving or has moved!
We were all born and bred in Harlow, Essex but are now living in Hope Valley, Adelaide. My Kids and I are West Ham supporters but Hubby odd one out in Supporting Spurs.
Djanjo, wher in Harlow did you live?
We are not far from you in Hornchurch, Hope to be in Adelaide (when visa is granted) mid 08. Our good friends(they use 2 live next door) are already there.
wouldn't it be nice to meet up when in OZ even non hammer fans could come LOL.
Good luck, what visa are you going on?
We lived in the nursing accommodation near the hospital and also in Milwards.

Hi Duncan Clan and Tina and Steve - Mawson Lakes and Wynn Vale are both to the North East of Adelaide so I congratulate you on your choices - drop me a line when you get here and we'll get together for an ex-essex coffee/glass of wine (with Wendy who is also from Essex if she can make it).
Did make me smile when I read where you're both heading for - I have this theory that the further north in Britain you lived, the further south in Adelaide you head, and vice versa, so there are a lot of Essex and Kent people heading for this side of town! There are some lovely places round here, and the North generally is a boom-town as far as jobs and work go, so as I said, good choice :-)
