    Alioops: We are down in morphett vale. How is the north treating you so far? Iv been through there a few times. Some really nice pockets. Nice and close to the barossa too. Yummy, barossa wine! I don't think I could live out north. Too far from the beach for me!

    I grew up in Reynella!! How's that for close!! Yeah North is better than I thought it would be, closer to family and there are a few BBers around me.

    DH is on stand down for another week because the army stuff at edinburgh was not finished. Qies had no stationary, metalsmiths no welding wire (he is the only metalsmith on Edinburgh) so an extra 2 weeks leave has been nice. I am about ready for him to start work though, he is driving me nuts.

    Lol. Dh went back to work today after 5 weeks off so I hear you about being ready for him to go back. It's nice having them home though. We lived in reynella before we moved here. Just near south gate plaza there. Loved it there. We like living here coz we are nice and close to family. Out north we would be very isolated.

    There has been so much work going on at edinborough. Dh was always going on about the road closures etc. You would think that they would have everything ready before they moved the army in but that would just be common sense lol.

    Absolutely Teresa!! We are in Regent Grove estate. Our place was vacant for 18 months so there is a bit that they are getting fixed, because they couldn't test it without power or phone connection. we are the 1st DHA tenants in a house that they bought. Half the bark is missing so I hope they dont TC it. I need to prune back the lavendar bush though, because it covers the water metre.

    Beatitude, I lived behind the house across the road from Sunrise Christian School. We still go down south regularly because DH's family are all south, mine are north and west now. but we are closer that 3000km now which is good.

    Hello ladies!
    Seems this thread went silent for a while - and I just wanted to drop in and say hi!

    Are any of your partners with 3RAR in Sydney? I was down from Townsville last week to attend some briefings about Townsville, and not sure if anyone from BB would have been there.

    I can't remember, but are there many ladies in here in Townsville? (I know Strawberry Fields is).

    Hope everyone is going well!

    Hi everyone. My DH is in the Army at 2Cdo Reg in Sydney. We havent lived anywhere else because he doesn't get posted. There seem to be a lot of Defence wives on BB!
