So we have been in our new home for 5 months now. I think we are settling in ok...the kids are enjoying school and kindy and have made some friends. Josh is very much looking forward to going up to Year 1 next year and Lachlan is VERY ready to head to Prep next year. They will be in the same class as its a Prep/1 so I hope that it goes smoothly both for them and their teacher.

I have joined the local band called "Court in Session", as we practice in the Court House. We have a drummer (the Sgt here), 4 guitars - 3 teachers and 1 of the hairdressers and me on the keyboard. I am enjoying it and getting better each practice.

Now i thought that being in the band might get me some more friends....not that i joined for that reason but I thought it might help. But it hasn't yet.
So here I am....alone on a Saturday as the husband is out of town for work and feeling quite sorry for myself.

I thought I was making some tentative friendships but maybe i'm not. This week has been hard. Its hard seeing other people have lunches out and me thinking...i wonder if i'll get to do that one day....its hard listening to people talk about parties going on and wonder when i'll get an invite myself. Its hard.

I know we've only been here a short time and we'll be here for a lot longer and that by the time we leave i'll hopefully be saying goodbye to some good friends. But in the meantime it sucks.

So a friend of mine suggested that I take the initiative. So I am going to plan my own party...a ladies something. And maybe from that some friendships might be made. And maybe the other ladies might feel more comfortable in inviting me to something of theirs. Its worth a try anyway.
