Mum's meet up?

    Recommended Posts

    Hi everyone,

     

    I've not met many people here in Adelaide yet and wondered if there were any Mum's out there who would like to get together? Perhaps we could all meet up somewhere or I am willing to host coffee/ cakes etc at mine (Brighton) - kids welcome of course! :D

     

    I have 3 boys - Aaron is 5 and at school, James is 2 and Leo is 15 mths. We'd love to meet new people and get a network of friends going. I'm really missing my coffee mornings and wine nights that I used to have back home and the kids are missing their old playmates.

     

    If you are interested, either reply to this thread or PM me and we'll see if we can arrange something.

    We are not over until August, but my wife and our (soon to be) 8 month old would definitely be up for that!

    Guest Here at last!

    Hi

     

    We are moving to Adelaide at the end of July. I have Oliver who is 4 and Theo who is nearly 2.

     

    I don't mind driving to meet up somewhere to burn some of the kid's energy!

    Hi Jo,

     

    I wondered if you could give me some advise? I have read your posting about wanting to meet up with other mums. I have a 21 month son and i'm expecting baby no. 2 in november (another boy - we've just found out!). We hope to be over in Adelaide early next year and I just wanted to ask your advise about moving over to oz with little ones.

     

    I'm starting to get quite worried about making the move. My son is really getting close to his grandparents and I feel awful about taking that away from him. How are you finding it without family support? I also worry about not having friends around with children - are you finding there are lots of classes or toddler groups about? Have you had many responses from other emglish mums about meeting up?

     

    We have wanted to make the move for some time now and are very excited that we are nearly there but of course being very hormonal at the moment I am starting to have lots of worries about it!!

     

    Hope you can help - I would be interested in meeting up when we eventually get there!!

     

    Thanks,

    Nicky

    Hi Nicky

     

    My son is also getting very close to his grandparents he is 2 1/2 we are hoping to be out in Oz towards the end of this year and he will be three and my daughter will be 1. I am worried but you must be going on a roller coaster what with being pregnant.

     

    There are loads of people on here who have made the move with kids and they all seem to be ok about it. Yes it will be hard but your son will be at the right age for it to be an adventure.

     

    All I can say is it will be ok and just keep an eye on here. If your on facebook you cna always chat on there just PM and we can keep in touch.

     

    All the best and I am sure it will be ok.

    Hiya Nicky,

     

    It's a bit different for me as my parents and sister moved here 6 mths before us so we have a support network. Having said that, I've met up with lots of families and they all seem to be managing very well without family from back home. I think the key is helping each other out - I've met great people via this site and meet regularly, as well as going to playgroups etc, all of whom have been welcoming.

     

    We had our Mum's meet up a while ago now but I am always up for meeting new people. Just give us a yell when you get here (PM or use mob number in my signature). I had people help me out when I arrived and it would be nice to be able to do the same for others. Even if its telling you where to buy a toaster, every bit of info helps :biglaugh:

     

    I have quite a few friends here now with lots of kids between us. Kids are the best way to meet people - we all have something in common! Don't worry about it - it all works out.

    Hi Jo

    I've sent a PM too but would also like to meet up and I'm happy to drive to Brighton (we're currently in Hallett Cove). I'll be bringing Louis age 4 as he's not at pre-school yet until we've found an area to rent long term.

    Thanks!
