    Hi all we are Martin and Dawn 43 and 38

    Darcy and Francesca 14 and 11.

     

    Been here in southern suburbs for 9 months now and got over all the problems of jobs, house etc etc, but it seems that weve overlooked the fact that you cant just replace good friends that youve made over your lifetime just like that.

     

    The kids make friends easily and they are too old for us to stand in the playground with now, so we would like to meet other couples/families to share a glass of wine or go for a coffee or pint with occasionally. i know this isnt easy, because its taken us this long. So if youre like us and could use some really good friends please reply.

     

    Apart from needing friends, I like to think that we are otherwise a normal disfuctional family lol.

    Hi Martin, when I first came to Adelaide, someone said to me 'Australians are so hard to make friends with, but once you do you have a friend for life'. I found that to be so true. Although it works the other way too, if they get their knickers in a twist, they're off like a shot no matter who's fault it may be lol! unlike us pommes who have a whinge and its done with.

    It seems to be getting more difficult to meet new people - and not just with the ozzies - it appears life itself has changed and everyone gets on with their own life doing their own thing. Not much community spirit anymore (here anyway). I lived down south for a few years before moving 'up north' two weeks ago......so i'm starting again too.

    Hence, i've joined this super site :jiggy:

    You're fortunate down south, there's loadsa Pommes, join one of the social groups down there or better still, move up north!! lol.

    Good luck and enjoy!

    So know where you're coming from! We've got six months under our belts but I spend ridiculous amounts of time on Skype!

     

    We're north of the city in the Golden Grove area but nothing's far from anywhere here

     

    PM me if you want to catch up - we're a family of three with a 7 year old who is going on 15!
