In episode 3 of the this family life I chat with Lulu who lives in Perth, Western Australia. Lulu moved to Perth just over 6 years ago, when she was pregnant with her second child and a toddler in tow. Lulu knew no one and was on the other side of the country to where her family lived. Now, she has an amazing friends whom she sees almost daily and counts as her extended family.
In the episode, some highlights of the wisdom you will pick up from Lulu are:
- How to make friends when you move to a new town
- The benefits from being involved with the kids schools
- How to manage the workload that comes from being on committees
- Why she takes time out to look after herself.
