Long time, no speaky, dear Bubhubbers!
As a part of my "OMG-I'm-turning-30-better-sort-my-sh!t-out, and seeing my not so beloved ex move to the other side of the country, I have decided to grab life with two hands, move from this mining town and back closer to Sydney (which I love). And what better start than moving somewhere completely new.
Anyways; you Novocastrians in here, what can you tell me about Newcastle - good, bad, and plain ugly? What suburbs are nice (I prefer gritty and guzzling to quiet residential areas), what is public transport like (I don't drive), and how hard is it to find childcare.
Lots of love from the slightly frazzled, poor single nomad with two amazeballs toddlers.
