Hi all,

I work from home - freaking YAY and we moved here in January so i'm not exactly in the best position to meet new people ph34r.gif apart from harassing random strangers at Civic .. something I can't quite see myself doing laugh.gif

Anyhoo - DH is in defence and we have no kiddie pops so taking our pooch to play dates isn't even an option for me to "get out there" LMFAO!!

So if there's anyone else out in i-do land like me who's new to Canberra and wants to say g'day - come on down blush.gif

LMAO - no no more than happy to join you guys ... PLEASE GET ME OUT OF MY HOUSE!!!! wacko.gif

Heather - Firstly - congrats on your little man - he is beautiful!! wub.gif his name as well!! I'm in Queanbeyan too - i think it counts as Canberra because it's closer than Sydney!!

Jade - yep yep pls send me your work email.

Went to see a naturopath in Kingston today FINALLY - got more love than from a doctor - he pretty much hit the nail on the head everytime - looked in my eyeballs took my blood etc etc - now on 17 bloody tablets for the next 5 days - then "go down" to 15 tabs for 2 weeks - after which i go back for more finger pricking and eyeball poking - n hopefully be less than that.

Never seen my blood cells on the big screen before - was highly entertained happy.gif

Well I like to think I am upper Qbyn, lol!!! But you are clearly not a Canberran - Qbyn is very much not a 'part' of Canberra to many people! I think Sydney is more openly accepted then Qbyn.

ROTFL - ohhh we've heard it all!! HA!! So many ppl pay us out for living in Qbyn - but we're loving it - as long as I don't go to Karabar Shops it's all good ... oooh hang ... i don't actually do anything BUT fuel up and live here ... even our post box is in Canberra .... think we're in denial tongue.gif

We have a nice quiet street, big houses, everything looks well maintained ... no murders or yelling n screaming just yet .... EXCEPT for our neighbour's kid who sings in the shower every night ... i think his days are numbered laugh.gif

Maybe we should look at a Friday arvo wine/beer/soft drink somewhere? Or a Sat/Sunday morning coffee/hot chocolate rather than trying to squish everyone into a work lunch break that works for everyone?

Maybe?? Meh?? I dunno LOL!! Hell I'm up for kite flying ... ok ... that was a total lie ... maybe NOT kite flying happy.gif
