    Hi,

     

    Just seen your thread about the meet up at Henley Beach on the 15th Nov. We would love to come and meet some other poms if thats ok. We are living up in Gawler at the moment with our Brother in law but hope to move around the Henley area by that time so if we do we would love to come.

    Where abouts are you meeting up and what time etc. Thanks Jo and Jez from Manchester.

    Hey it's a weird thing, I was determined to meet aussies when I first went backpacking (met only poms, irish and japanese!)

     

    Then when i moved here and started working i rarely see other poms, and after my family aussie bbqs where they tease you about the cricket, weather etc, it's actually good to chat to the british!

     

    I work at a printers and answer the phone alot and it only takes someone on the other end to go 'are you from the uk?' 'yes' "i'm also from the uk' and blah blah blah i go chatting about the mother country....

    Thanks for the welcome, can't believe i never found this site earlier - what a great cure for homesickness!!

     

    Well I must say after a year the words g'day, arvo, snags and bottle-o have successfully been intergrated into my vocab, the rest of me is still quite british although i now hate even tiny queues and realise there is never any point being early for anything in oz! :)
