I have two kids in primary school with a husband who works longs hours and travels sometime.

I do work part time but would love to meet new people and hopeful to make new friends.

We moved here to Brisbane a few years ago....

Any expat partners/wives? Any Australians who used to live overseas or interstate?

Cheers
Dee

I don't do 3 drop offs. Both the high school and primary school are close together so I just drive to the primary school and the boys walk to school.
I work full time as well and being in retail I meet a lot of different people everyday. I don't have a big group of friends though. TBH, I don't really have time and my husband is my best friend.
I'm out Midland way so at the base of the hills. I love it here because you feel like you're in the country but still only 20mins from the city. We have world class vineyards on our doorstep and love exploring them on the weekends.
Your friends are in expensive suburbs, there are still decent suburbs at reasonable prices here.

Thats a handful, Michelle.

You are doing three dropoffs. My girlfriends who live in Perth (one with 3 kids; 2 boys and a girl) live near city in Mt Lawley and another just bought in Claremont (a boy and a girl) -- told me its like full on in Perth.

Its pretty low key here in Brisbane but perhaps in 2 years when my oldest goes to highschool it will get more hectic.

We love Perth; we nearly moved there but happy in Brisbane now. You get so much more value with your buck for property here.

Do you find it easy to make friends? Not school mums per say!

Thank you for chatting. Wish you were here in Brisbane. I have two great friends living in Perth. How many kids do you have?

I have two; a 9 and 6 yo daughters.
