I've been here for a while but haven't posted in this thread.
I'm Bec (23), partner to Simon and mum to Charlotte (13months) and Izaak (5).
We live in Karabar and I'm currently a SAHM but have got a uni application in to start my nursing degree next year. It's exciting but scary as well!
I'd definitely be interested in walking Meredith! I've got no idea where Dunlop is though??

Been posting daft questions for a few weeks and thought I best introduce myself now I have found this...
Me - Karen 28 next week!
Dh - 28
dd - 20 months 6/6/05
#2 due july 21st
currently live in UK, but moving to Canberra on 11th April.
I currently work in IT, but am really hoping the move with allow me to be a SAHM for a couple of years and then I will go back to the working world.
Really excited about the move, but have too many things to do in the next 8 weeks and the reality of saying goodbye to a different friend and family member each week is getting tough.
So glad I have "met" you all, Canberra does not fell so unfamiliar now.
thanks for your warm welcome

happy easter to all!,
Its funny how people come on here and introduce themselves and that seems to be it!
How is every one going so far?
Shine- Welcome to canberra when you get here!!
Guess you'll handle the cold pretty well coming from the uk!
I am hoping to go to England next year with my little one.
My personal trainer just took her 6 month old over and really enjoyed the trip. She had the help of her husband though. Whereas when I go it will just be the 2 of us!
Getting very anxious about bubs arrival. Desperate for her to be here! Sometimes it doesn't feel real. I sit in her room and its weird thinking about how life is going to be.
Wish we would get some rain. Its been nice weather but I've been sick in bed for the last 6 days so rain would have been lovely! Have some horrible cold/flu virus. I don't remeber eva being sick so long before in my life. Hope to chat to you all soon and hear all the cute easter stories. Have a gr8 weekend Sarah
P.s Hiya Gaby where are you having bubs? How are you feeling?
