    "Fed up with BBQ's and getting drunk" Sorry your a good mate but thats just

    un-Australian and as Liam would say gay. You'll will be eating quiche next.

     

    Have a great day out on that cruise ship you call a small fishing boat and I hope you have more luck than I had the last 4 days at Robe.

    We have been invited to my stepdaughter's house in Sheidow Park. She has invited her and her partner's friends and is having a barbeque, beer and cricket. I also get to see my step granddaughter who is ten weeks old - so it should be young, lively and fun. Enjoy, whatever you are doing.

    :P:p

     

    I can get drunk and BBq any time though!!!

    Just giving ma system a rest.

    Mind you I reckon it will be packed on the launch ramps - hopefully I don't have a fit of "Ramp Rage" again!

    Just looking for a hooooge Aussie flag to tie onto the boat.

     

    Apart from the fishing did you enjoy Robe again??

    I was wondering how you were going.

     

    We'll have to get out there soon - Snappers are in !!!

    Its our lil girls birthday so we will have that to celebrate also I am going to celebrate the opportunity that this great country has given us, but we must not forget the original aboriginal people who used to roam this land many years ago before anyone else had discovered it this sunburnt land.

     

    All in all have a great day boys and girls.;)

    Thanks just leaving for a BBQ at mates place. It's a great day, hot with a little wind ( a bit like Tyke ).

     

    I will have a drink to everybody waiting to get here. It will be your turn soon and I really hope you find life here as great as I do.

    We started off our "australian day" in Glenelg. I thought it was hurling thongs..but it turned out they were lilo's shaped as thongs..they were trying to break some world record. Apparently they sold 85 lilo's last year and this year they sold out!..so it must have been a record even in that respect.

     

    The guys leaping off the jetty were just too scarey to watch..but I've attached a few photos..that guy was soooooo close to cracking his napper off the side ..but he made it....with many gasps from the crowds! It's the busiest I've seen Glenelg beach since we got here but I'm not always "up" that way.

     

    We had a great day..hit Moana beach after Glenelg and had our usual family fun time in the sea with a ball ....and had a great time in the sea playing two a sides at throwing the ball..but there's a trick to timing it with the waves and catching it just so ..and then it bounces over the heads of the other players and that constitutes a goal...what a laugh it is as some of the waves are huuuuuge and you just get ragdolled...been dekegged a few times..ooer.

     

    All in all a fantastic day out...SA is HEAPS GOOD!..I love it

    Glenelg beach. So busy mind you...so many "young folk"...that's one of the reason's we headed off..if you're "that age"..it's just fantastic. Still glad I went though..but we love Moana beach and had a great family time there later as it wasn't quite so busy.

     

    Hope you had a fab Ozzy day too!

    Hiya

     

    We didn't get to Moana till about 4pm..jeez it was still rooooooooooooasting at that time. But what a laff we had. That seaweed mind you..never seen that before..just must have been the way the surf was swelling in and out. I never sawq any jet ski's :-( but then..I just wasn't watching for them!..sounds fab though!!!

     

    Moana beach was busy too...but thought as the sand was "soft" the car side of it didn't look so busy.. we were up the other end. Fab day..just love the beach...never really been huge beach folk on holibobs...spain, portugal, blah blah..but for some reason we're there just about every day! Bring it on..never felt happier.

    Hi Carol Ann,

     

    Thanks for the great photos!

    Looks like you all had a smashing day!

    just when we were discussing what an up hill struggle it all is to be going to the sunny side, ( fly out from manchester 21st Feb, but you will know what we are up against having been there ), trust someone like yourself to make us realise WHY.

    MY son is the same, not keen on the beach, ( sand getting into delicate places and all that)!, but loves the water and just playing out, so he will be in his element.:)

    I think it is so long that we have had some proper sunny day's, and it's true it does make you feel better in the sun.

    Hope to catch up with you all soon.

    Thanks again, such a tonic!! :daydreaming:

    It's a fantastic place for your family. We've never been closer since we got here. But..it's difficult on a temporary visa (which we are) and we still don't have jobs. BUT I'm confident it'll happen. We had to pay 9 months rent in advance to secure the rental we wanted..which is still a 40 minute drive away from the city..which isn't great. But I love Port Noarlunga and I'm willing to take the hit for the jobs. Now that I know I have my long term rental I may well concentrate on jobs which are south of the city which would cut my travelling to 25 minutes ....well worth it.

     

    We've only been here 5 weeks and feel we've achieved so much already but we've had a fair bit of cash behind us..but our house is still renting back in Scotland..so we have all that hassle..but it may well work in our favour in the long run..once the recession lifts....who knows how long that will take ..but we have good tennants and I'm happy with the way it's all shaping up.

     

    As I say...SA IS HEAPS GOOD!!!..living the dream. As far as I'm concerned my preconptions of Australia have not let me down.

     

    I just hope we get jobs and make it work!!!..KEY to the whole process..lol..ach..I'll think up something to make money if needs be. "Auto spray sun screen on beach!"..Walk in..pay's your money..and all over spray.

     

    Pah..they just roll off..lol...one day I'll think one up that is useful!!

     

    TTFN... Carol Ann

    well we had a packet of timtams, a packet of mint slices and a bag of jaffas that travelled well and have survived well in the arctic conditions here.
