Hi! My husband and I have been living in Adelaide since Feb 2007, my parents have an application in for a contributory parent visa (likey to be granted some time in 2011)
They are coming out for 12 months (on a visitors visa) in Oct 2009 and will be living with us and using the time to research areas, etc.
I know they would like to use this time to get to know a few like-minded people while they are here. They are both from the midlands, in their early 60s, play bowls and also attend art classes. My Mum has been retired since Dec 2007 and my Dad will retire when they come over in Oct (but may work part time when he moves out permanently)
I look forard to hearing from some people I can put Mum and Dad in touch with.
