DH has been headhunted, interviewed and pretty much offered a job in Zurich. He is thrilled. I have struggled as a sahm for the last few years and spent the last year rebuilding my life to a point where things are pretty good for me and the dc's...see where this is going?! We've just moved into our dream house, the dc's are in a fantastic private school with lovely friends and equally lovely parents. Please tell me about living in Zurich with 3 boys and help me see how fantastic this opportunity is.
Good luck with your move! We didn't get a car right away and managed with Mobility car sharing, for doing stuff like day trips to the mountains/ikea/big shopping trips. But if you want to ski this winter I'd get a car right away as it's hard work with kids and all the stuff.
How do we find out about what there is to do with little kids in the area? I got a phone call from the health visitor last time I moved and there are loads of toddler groups/preschool classes to keep my kids busy but how do you find out what there is to do in a new town in a new country?
I'm also wondering about shopping and thinking about stocking up on things here before we move. We have lots of discount stores and big supermarkets open 24/7 in our town so it's easy to nip out and get anything but how will I won't even know where to go for cheap craft supplies for the kids/clothes/random household items/contact lenses?
