I paid 850 but can claim it back from insurance company. Well worth it for prevention is better than cure. I made an appointment for my husband as well !

Having been told by my DH that there isn't any way I'm going home for the summer I am stuck here. He says it will do me good to put up with some discomfort can't say I'm happy at the peospect I hate the sun and intense heat it's already too hot for me. So now how do I meet some ladies who will be here through the summer and not working. The three friends I have made are all leaving in June back sept. HELP feeling really fed up :cry: <em>edited by Delgirl82 on 20/03/2015</em>

Your all making me feel better about the prospect. I'm not a fan of the heat so that does worry me that I'll end up a prisoner in my home. But the sound of staying in nice hotels is good.

Hi been here five weeks and braved my first coffee morning last Thursday. Golf club location was lovely. Still quite lonely but having to wait in for things to be delivered doesn't help the socialising. Will be going again this Thursday. It's ok for the men they go off to work lots to do and people to talk to all day. But it is lonely in a flat in a place you don't know I can go all day with no one to talk to. Husband left today saying have fun, you have got to be joking!

Thanks for the tip re noise and construction. We def wouldn't like that. So shoreline is a better option for sure with all the facilities. Thanks for the advice. Anyone think the marina might be better ?

thanks i will have a look at miller hay. yes boredom is the thing that concerns me most. I'm not one for endless coffee or shopping. so i think i will tire of gym and apartment very quickly. Especially if my husband works long hours.

Wow 5 pets!! i will be leaving my lovely labrador with my son so she will be a happy dog but i will miss her dreadfully. did you get a job once out there as i have also thought about doing this as it will keep me busy. if so was it easy? JVT mmm not sure where that is? i will look it up. I'm hoping my husband won't work as long as he does here but i think that is a faint hope!

Good for you give it a try because although you think you'll be tied your probably not going to want to leave baby for a while. Hard to imagine I know. The health benefits to you and baby far out weigh any tie and it's for such a short time. The confidence to do it is the most important thing believe you can and you will

personally i'd say breast feed so much easier especially when travelling, no bottles to make up and carry and always available. feeding a baby is very rewarding, and healthy for both of you.
