Hi! New to Christies Beach

    Guest LouiseHatcher

    Hello, not sure if I'm doing this right but here goes! We have been here for 2 weeks, we moved from Kent to Christies and are still trying to get ourselves sorted out, banks, car, phones etc. We have 2 small children so have been to a few playgroups already which have been really good. Just wondered if there is anyone out there who lives in this area, if so, get in touch! Missing home a lot, would be nice to meet some other English folk :biggrin:

    Hi, welcome to Adelaide!! I know how it is in those first few weeks, so much to sort out and still find time to entertain the kids!

     

    We are in Moana but my eldest son goes to school in Port Noarlunga so would be happy to meet up if you want to?

     

    My husband is originally from Ashford in Kent, whereabouts are you guys from?

     

    There are so many English in Christies Beach, im sure you will bump into someone along your way!!

    And there is me/us (((((wave))))) from London/Kent borders arrived November just up the road in Hallett Cove. Haven't been brave enough to go to any playgroups yet. Would be great to meet up for a coffee or cup of tea. Or let me know next time you are going to a playgroup and we will tag along if thats OK.

     

    If I can help with anything just let me know.

    Wow I am so pleased to have received all your replies, we are off of Beach Road in Christies, right down the bottom near the park. We were living in Strood in Kent and have moved from a 2 bedroom flat to a 4 bed house so big changes for us. Our little girl is 3 in a couple of weeks, she thinks all her friends are coming to her party, bless her she doesn't quite realise yet that we aren't going to see anyone now for a while and that we don't actually have any friends to have a party with. Our little boy Alfie is 8 months old and of course, no probs with him adjusting.Sarah, where abouts were you living in the UK? Hallets Cove looks very pretty, we were actually in Brighton today so passed where you are. I have been going to O'Sullivan Beach children's centre and the Noarlunga Centre library for story and rhyme time. How old are your children?Do you drive? Chris and Selina where abouts are you in Christies?

    Hi Guys,

     

    Just wondering how you were all getting on on your new adventure?

     

    Our time has come, and now i'm fretting about Grace (7) going from a school with just 16 kids...yep in the whole of the school....to one that has 300 per year intake.....so if any of you can calm me down, or even if yours go to Port Noarlunga (this is where we are looking) and fancy meeting up before she starts PM me. We are hoping and praying to land on 11th April...can any of you advise me on termdates?

     

    Thanks.x.x

    Hi Dawn

     

    We live in Christies Beach. We have a son aged 8 so he is too old to play with the little one. However, my husband works for ASC so you never know the husbands might end up meeting up at work.

    Hi , we fly over on 22nd April. Me, husband and 2 children, Callum 6 and Emily 4. We are looking at Callum going to Port Noarlunga school. I really hope he settles as he loves his school here in the uk and has lots of friends. He is fine about moving though. How is your sin getting on bid?

    Hi all, i'm a 'newbie' arrived on 10 Jan & living in woodcroft. I have 3 children Maisie 11, Joe 7 (8 next month) & Woody 4. I'm not working & would enjoy meeting up with any other mums who have time for a coffee somewhere. I have family over for the next 2 weeks but after that I'm going to head up to the fort on a wed @ 11.30 to meet up with the group for starters and if anyone's interested in meeting any other time would be great to hear from you.
