View Full Version : Kalgoorlie Mummies
hey girls, i went to south kalgoorlie primary school, just wondering if any of you did too? i started in 1990 and finished in 1997. I am 22 this year and have a 1 year old baby boy :wave:
I didnt but one of my sons does :)
Are you still in Kalgoorlie ???
no i live in bunbury now :D we went back to visit not long ago but eeeek all the red dust... im to accustomed to our beautiful white sand!!
Bunbury is lovely! Really cool people are born there (me:D ). I can't wait to go visit my nan down there soon.
I didn't go to Sth Kal primary. I moved from Perth to Kal about 8 yrs ago and don't mind it here but yeah I can't handle the red dirt!:no: It gets into everything!!
I lived in Bunbury when I was younger, for about 3 yrs. I really liked living there and made heaps of friends at the time, I've lost contact with them now but about 5 yrs ago I went to a high school reunion down there, that was pretty cool and a bit wierd:laughing: I couldn't get over how much Bunbury has grown. Come and chat to us Kal mums on our thread anytime:thumbsup:
Have you got family down there? Are you into any playgroups or anything?
Anyway hopefully chat soon, bye for now!
yep bunbury is HUGE now, and frikkin expensive. and to tell you the truth, im a little bit over it! my family are all here, but i think we might need a little bit of space to grow as a family without so much input from every one else! i think i need a change, but im not really too sure where to go lol definatly not back to kalgoorlie though! after living on the coast im not sure i could ever go back! i felt so isolated!
oops sorry to your other question.. i dont have any mums groups or anything up here. bunbury is a really clicky town. most people have been friends since primary school and they stick to their own little groups. i never had many friends in high school and i still dont now lol but jett does have astro gym which is at our south west sports centre and its a big room with all sorts of fun stuff for them to play with and then we do singing and dancing, and then he has swimming lessons as well, we have got a bird park here which he likes to go to, but most of the time we go down south. we've been to aqwa in busselton which is an underwater aquarium, and country life farms (recommended to any one travelling out that way!) and we've taken him caving, so he gets around a bit!
Sounds like fun! At least you've got heaps more things to do and places to visit down there. There is not alot up here, as you would know. Especially places to visit with your kids, the same old parks gets a bit boring at times!:sleeping:
I could imagine there'd be some 'clicky' groups down there. It's like that up here too. Even at Jared's knidy there are a few who have their own little group and don't talk to any of the other mums. I can't be bothered with that sort of thing, it's not like we're still at high school:thumbsdown: But I spose that's what can happen in smaller places where people do know each other from early school days, they're funny with anyone who isn't a 'local' IYKWIM...
Anyway enough about that, what high school did you go to? I did yrs 8 & 9 at Bunbury High. We had to live right next door to the Bunbury fire station as my dad was the station officer. That was interesting, I use to hate getting woken up in the middle of the night by sirens if they had a call-out.
So have you got any ideas on where you may want to move to?
Further down south or up the coast more, past Perth?
I can't wait until we move back to the coast in a couple of yrs. We're moving to a small town called Cervantes, which is about halfway between Perth and Geraldton.
I betta shut-up now:laughing:
hey! yeah the bunbury mums are like that too.. we went to astro gym and none of the mums talk to each other.. its so silly! i am a real chatter box and i'll talk to any one but they are good at making you feel left out up here!! i went to newton moore high school years 8,9, & 10. i have no idea where i want to go really.. somewhere warm, but not far north enough for those horrible torrential downpours. exmouth would be nice but the property is too expensive. whats taking your family to cervantes? ive never been there. its probably a 500km drive from here!
Hi ya JettsMummy:wave: How are you and your little man going?
Oooooo Exmouth sounds beautiful. I've never seen up that way yet but one day I will get there and have a look. I've heard it's really lovely. I want to get to Monkey Mia one day and check out the dolphins:) Have you ever been there?
In regards to Cervantes, my FIL has a house there, that has been getting built for the last 8 yrs or so:laughing: It only ever gets work done on it when we go there for holidays which is only twice a year, after Xmas and at Easter time. So that's why it's taken so long to be finished. There is a big shed out the back though all set up to sleep in, shower etc in there, so that's where we stay when we go there. Anyway we just love the place so much we want to move and settle there. They have a little primary school there which is perfect for the kids to go to. DH may have to work away on and off or hopefully get a job in a sand mine near there, approx 45 mins drive away. I can't wait to be back near the beach, teach the kids how to fish and other stuff to enjoy. Plus we'll also be closer to Perth so I'll be able to zip down there more to go shopping, etc and our families live there as well.
So have you got a partner?
Back to your previous post about how expensive Bunbury is now. I didn't think Bunbury would be that expensive being so close to Perth and not too isolated IYKWIM. Is it the cost of houses, rent, food that are expensive?
Anyway will chat soon
hey :wave: we are both good.. im feeling a little frazzled today though! its been a long day! ive never been to monkey mia but we have dolphins that come in to Koombana Bay every day that are really lovely!
Yep I do have a partner.. hes 26.. and jetts hero of course!
its not really expensive for food etc in Bunbury, just the property and rent prices have gone through the roof, we were lucky we got in early, but our house is valued at around $450k for a 4 x 2 about 10 minutes drive from the beach.. so i reckon thats pretty expensive!
Cervantes sounds really nice! we'll have to head up for a drive one day!
Hope you're feeling a little less frazzled this week:laughing:
That's right, I forgot the dolphins come into Koombana Bay daily. Have got right up close to them before? Are you allowed to feed them or is it a strict set-up in regards to touching and feeding them?
What a great price valuation for your home. Even here in Kal the housing market is amazing at the moment. Now is definitely the time to sell that's for sure:yes:
Awww how cute Jett's dad is his hero. Little boys really look up to their dads don't they, it's very cute.
So anything exciting been happening down there this week?
Chat to you soon
