We have been in Adelaide for approx 6 months now and the whole family seems to be having a tough time..... We are all homesick.... Not that I don't appreciate the whole lifestyle on offer here but its proving harder than we thought we settle in....
My 14 year old daughter is finding it the hardest and is very down at the moment. Begging for us to go back to the UK. She is going to school at Mount Carmel and we are living on the esplande in Largs Bay. She is getting really good grades and has made friends at school. The problem is that no-one she has met has the same interests as her and she is refusing to do any extra curricular sport..... (she is heavily into fashion, shopping, TV etc) I have suggested numerous amount of different things she should try but she won't.
What I really need is to help her meet friends. May be meeting other kids from the UK that are in the same boat might help her deal with the move.... And someone to go shopping with (that isn't her mother!) would be great too.
Can anyone help????
