Hi peeps. At last! After an anxious rollercoaster over the last few years we are finally here. We have just moved into a rental in Hallett Cove after spending a few weeks with friends in North Haven. Only managed to get the kids in school for just over a week before the hols which wasnt ideal but hope they have met one or two people. I didnt realise year 9 broke up so early, had expected another week or 2 for them to settle. but hey ho such is life. OH started a job yesterday which is such a relief as outr money has been going ourt at a rate of knots! Everything costs so much, even things you think you have already paid for (ie OH plumbing skills recognition in UK??? what is that all about?). Still no work for me as Im a teaching assistant and am still waiting for my DECs number but fingers crossed it wont be too long. I had hoped to get some seasonal work to tide me over but seems all the students have bagged those already. Guess I'll just have to lie in the sun...Can't wait for our container to turn up. No furniture, no tv, internet or phone, no washing machine or bed...how we take all these for granted. Never mind they should soon be here. Hope we can get internet sorted out. No one mentioned that Hallett was a problem connection area, my kids are climbing the walls. Thank god for Hallett library keeping us on line!
Can anyone tell me how to find out what is going on in the area socially or if there are any meetups. No doubt we will call in the Cove tavern this weekend but I wonder if there area other things around or ways of meeting up with potential friends. Its very wierd not knowing anyone, I wasnt prepared for how alien everything feels at the moment. Suppose its very early days and will get better when i get a job. Any info, advice or opportuntiy to chat would be welcome. Look forward to hearing from you. ttfn Jane
