My name is Francine and I've been living here in London for 5 months. It's kind of lonely and although I've made friends through my children, the school they attend is not very welcoming. So this thread sounded very interesting and maybe we would have somethings in common.
I would really love (and my two daughters would too!) to meet up with some other Aussie kids. (9 to 11yrs or there abouts)My kids are feeling a bit homesick so, here I am to see if any Aussie families are willing?
How about a coffee and chat first. I live near Hammersmith but am willing to travel.
I have an Australian husband, a raft of Aussie friends and a two year old with dual nationality - do I qualify? I'm a New Zealander myself. And I live in Dulwich (which is south east london, but really not that far away).....
Hi, I've recently moved to London (Streatham) from Perth, and am keen to meet some other mums around here... my DS is a bit young though (he is 8months), so I doubt your kids would want to play with him Francine.
I'm from NZ originally, too. DS is also a NZ citizen, even though he's never been there! How long have you been living in the UK Kraffty?
Somewhat frighteningly, almost seven years! We came for a minimum of two years and things just developed from there - house, child, bigger house.....
Bubblemummy - sounds as if you're not that far away. send me an email if you'd be keen to catch up some time - I'm around on the weekends since I work full time, but we have a kiwi nanny who looks after our son in the week and I expect she'd be keen for a catch up as well.
Hi all, Im an Australian mum (Anna) with an almost 10mth old baby boy (Harry). We've just moved to London (Fulham) from Sydney. I am keen to meet up with other mums and babies for a play date/coffee/park outing. Bubblemummy - you sound like the perfect match
Hi Alix, I'm new to the area too. I have a car though so am happy to meet you at a park near your place. It is a lot easier for me to come to you given my DS is 10 months old. Thurs the 26th works for me. Either 10.30am or 3pm ish would be good. I used to live on Hammersmith Grove and know Shepherds Bush quite well. Ravenscourt Park may be the best bet? Although I haven't been there before so no sure if it's nice? Email me if you like.
