Something more...

Since my last post life has taken me for a whirl wind, summer is currently happening here, my De-facto visa has been approved (so I can stay in australia and work for 2 more years with no restrictions) and we are recovering from an expensive holiday season. All i have been doing lately is working my butt off.

Lately I have been sulking around our apartment, feeling sorry for my self. I don't really know why or how this happens but it does. I have a great boyfriend who treats my like a queen and he is always there for me. I guess I feel this way because I miss my friends and family back in USA and I just feel blah. 

I've been here in Australia for a year and five months, and I still haven't made as many friends as I thought I would. Don't get me wrong I have met some great people here and have done things that some people can only imagine, but no body can replace the friends you have had all your life, the ones who know everything about you. They are the people who you are 100% comfortable with, and you can sit together and say nothing, and it would still feel right. You can call them on a whim and just talk about your day. I miss that. Id have to say, I still haven't found that here. I guess that closeness comes in time.

My girls and I.....

So I have decided to do something more..a different approach to making new friends,
I am going to look into volunteering or taking a class. Hoping that I can meet some new people who are actually interested in the same things, and maybe find my self a hobby at the same time. 

Here are somethings I've come across in my search..........


  1. Hi! I found you via ExpatWomen!
    I know how hard it can be to make friends in a new country, it basically sucks. I've been living in France for a little over two years now, and have finally made some great friends through blogging (fellow expats). And one of them was a lovely Australian whom I adored, but she had to go back to Australia :-(
    BUT... she moved to Melbourne. Here's here blog, you should check it out:
    And I think if you stick to your list, you'll get yourself out there and make friends no problem :-)

  2. Thanks for the comment Sarah,
    I really appreciate that fact that you can relate, and i definitely will look up your friends blog. Its so hard sometimes, and its good to know you are not alone...write me anytime :)

  3. Ciao! It's interesting your blog from a country so far from mine! I follow you,ciao,Paolo:)
