Hello! Hope you're enjoying your foray into blogging. Be careful, it can be addictive!

Please, if you have anything to ask about moving to Europe, ask me. If I can answer a question for you or help in any way I'd be very pleased to!

I've never seen an episode of McLeod's Daughters but I was also a mouse in a production of Cinderella. I even had a solo to sing, "A mouse lived in a windmill in old Ansterdam"!!

I thought I'd blocked that from memory.

Anyway, I'll keep a look out for more posts from you, it's always nice to meet new people.

Ms. Mac,
Thank God I didn't have to sing as a mouse/horse. Instead I danced - picture a white leotard and tights, with a headband with mouse ears in badly permed 80s hair. I only wish I could block it from my memory, yet photos exist to confirm the horror.

If you get the chance check out McLeod's Daughter. I am only in the early episodes but pretty scenary, hunky guys, and semi-plausible female characters - did I mention the guys?

Thank you for the kind comment and encouragement. I have enjoyed reading your blog for the last six months and have many questions about moving overseas. As soon as I can recover from the shock of my first comment I'll get my thought together and ask them. My first comment - I feel like I've arrived!

That would be "thoughts" - getting my thoughts together (still working on it!).
