Hi Kath,

I moved to Ballarat about 5 years ago from the Mornington Peninsula & like you I left behind wonderful family & friends. We moved into Lake Gardens about 7 months ago.

Since I have been in Ballarat I have made some great friends, funnily enough with girls who are not originally from Ballarat. One of them (from NZ) runs a playgroup at Invermay which is very friendly & welcoming as she knows what it is like to be new to an area.

Would love to chat,
Sharni

Hi Kath,

I have lived in Ballarat for about three years now and still getting use to the place. I travel to Geelong for work so i get the best of both worlds. I am still trying to find a good playgroup in the area for my 21 mnth old daughter so if i find a good one will let you know. Please dont hesitate to ask anything k...

My girls are my world!!!!

Hey Kath,

I moved to Ballarat a year ago and left my family in Queensland so we have come a long way. I have a 6 month old and nearly 2 year old, both boys. It is hard making friends unless you know someone already. After having my 2nd child I was diagnosed with PND and went to a support group and have met the most wonderful people going through the same thing. We are thinking of setting up a playgroup shortly so if you are interested let me know and yu can come one day and see what you think.
Anyway if you want to chat my email is [email protected]
Hope you had a great Chrissy.
Good luck
Sara
Hi

I moved from a small town of 13,000 people to Ballarat about 6 months ago, I still feel like a tourist. I don't really get out much and hubby works afternoon shift and sleeps most of the day so I am kinda on my own with the two kids, it can get lonely at times. My children are DD 2 and DS 7 weeks.
