    Hi, we live in the West Midlands, in between Dudley and Wolverhampton. Not long got our visa but not ready to make the move just yet. We got to try and sell house first. Whereabouts do you live now?

    It certainly is my friend, ex season ticket holder in the Lower Holte :jiggy:

     

    And the best place to watch the match is round my place after some beers :biglaugh:

     

    If you come round on your vespa, I`ll even do you some food ;)

    Lastboyscout, thanks for the offer for the footie mate, you might retract your offer as I am bluenose! Have no problem with the Villa though my mates are half villa half blues..not the best start to the season for both teams, although with my blue tinted shades on we could have got a draw against man u. So if the offer is still there I will give you a shout when we arrive, we will be in Millswood so not sure how far away that is from you.

    Hi Davey72

     

    We are from the West Midlands, have been here since November 2008 and absolutely love it. All the very best with your journey if you need any information, ask away and we will try and help.

    Hi All,

    Not sure if anyone would still like to meet, I've put a thread on under "get togethers" and suggested meeting up before making the big move. We live in Northampton, but don't mind travelling, ............. herewith copy of thread....... (sorry if you have seen it already)

    If all goes to plan we will be moving to Adelaide early next year, and thought it would be nice to meet others in the same boat. Not only to share stories, but hopefully have a few familiar faces when we settle on the other side.

    We live in Northampton, and as a starting point would like to suggest the The Quays pub at Billing Aquadrome, it’s got a play area and is very family friendly. We have a little two year old and know how hard it is to find a place where you feel comfortable taking kids.

    Again, as a starting point, herewith a few dates and times to consider:

    5th or 6th Sept – meet at 12pm (can have lunch and go up stairs for the kids to play)

    12th or 13th Sept - meet at 12pm (can have lunch and go up stairs for the kids to play)

    Looking forward to meeting everyone and sharing stories.

    Hi Ang, yes i have got a job at queen elizabeth hospital, start in october. Sounds good that people at your work have been helpful and supportive to you at work, you need that.

    We have just had our OAA given to us, don't look brilliant, but at least it cheap and chearful, and will just be a base for us to look for more permanent digs. Guess we'll only be sleeping there anyways. Do you have kids, how they finding it?
