    Default Also moving to Townsville

    I'll be moving to Townsville at the end of next month.
    I'm in Melbourne atm. My partner is in the army and is being posted there. I've been in Melbourne for a bit over a year now and i'm freaking out about being alone up there. My sister was living here before we moved down so it wasn't as bad. It took me a few months to find bubhub and eventually met up with some other mums so i thought i would get in early on meeting mums from Townsville
    So i'm Rickie-lea and i'm 22, DP is 23 and DD will be 2 next month. I also have another little one on the way due early Jan. I'm not fussy and would love to get to know mums and bubs of any ages.
    Also i'm really interested to know what the weather is like this time of year? I consider anything between 18 and 20 degrees a nice day, for Melbourne anyway! DD has had a growth spurt is needs new clothes and i'm not sure if i should be buying for warm or cool weather.

    Hello I'm 23, DH in the Army, DD will be 2 in a week and a bit and DS is 6 months. I love making new friends so PM me when you're here, or we can add each other on FB and meet up

    I'd buy mostly warm clothes as it's about 24 during the day with winter PJs and a few jumpers and long pants, it's quite cool in the morning.

    Thank you for replying so fast ladies. I feel a lot less anxious now!
    I'm definitely looking forward to some warmer weather. I hate not being able to take DD places because it's too cold.
    Did your DP also get posted to Townsville, Elle?
    Feel free to add me to facebook. I check it more regularly than i do here. It's facebook.com/rickielea

    Kirwan is a nice area. As for weather - we're still in the pool most afternoons here! I live in Townsville. We travel to other places but will probably never leave the north. My only child is nearly 8 so at school.
