Default Hi Any single parents from Australia?

Hi
I just joined the group and wondered are there any singles from Australia?
I live in NSW Australia with teenage kids.
Like to learn more about life for singles in other countries as well.

Hullo nic, and welcome. I'm a former single parent, happily married
now to an aussie who came to the u.s. to be with my boys and me. Boys
are 10 and 8. That's a lot of caring you're doing for others -- I hope
you're finding enough time to care for yourself a bit too.

Good for you lm! It's so nice to hear that there are men out there
willing to take on the whole package!!

I'm sure Christine will let you all know that I do indeed take time out for
myself. With a few online games we tend to terrorize together and a few
forum/message boards we seem to have a great liking to spam (go girl flame
on!!). Aside from my release here on the pc, I do occasionally get to spend
a day to myself... Hairdresser, Catch up on chores (i'm a clean freak, yes
it's a novelty for me to do this), SLEEEEEEEEEEEEP!.

As for the level of caring I do..... Wouldn't you? My daddy is my daddy and
my son is my life..... What more can I say?

You and I are alot alike Nic (I had to consciously type that and not EQ.
lol) Anyways, we tend to give and give until we wear ourselves out. I am
actually thinking of hitting a spa in the next week, I've never been. Yeah
yeah I'm deprived. lol But I've been on a bit of a shopping spree this
week, got some extra money on the go so I bought a new down duvet, a hair
straightner, lingerie etc (I'm trying to pretty up for next month. lol)

LOL, do you know how hard it has been to not say 'yeah, brazen' ;x
Mmmmm, Spa!! Sounds awesome. DO let me know how it goes - I've been
interested in going to one for a while, they just seem to be soooo
expensive, and even then argh!! finding the time!.....
I was lucky a few weeks back on the cash front and did all my spoiling then
Feels sooooo good. Go silly!! You deserve it. (Don't you go too silly
on the spending spree tho - you need to save for vegas!
weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!)
I've slowly started to pack - will be moving into the new house within the
next 8 weeks - packing is soooo yukky but the thought of a bran new house is
soooo well, YaYaY! Kinda makes it all worth it.

I think a consistent issue for single parents is of course the one income,
so the frills are few and far between.

Great news to hear about the house coming along nicely, it's nice T is so
young you won't have to worry about him making that adjustment.

I'd get some personal opinions about that spa before you shell out the
cash, for that reason. My mom visited recently and we went and did a
2-for-1 manicure/pedicure and it was a pretty penny even with the
coupon and it turned out it really wasn't worth the money. We could've
saved the money and done as good a job on each other's toes while
sipping a couple of margaritas :-)
