I was living in my mum and dad’s house in Adelaide because they moved to Ireland. Then they sold the house and my twin sister helped me move up here. She’d lived here before and knows the owners. I have three kids – two boys and a girl. We’ve been here twelve months in the park. It’s OK but there’s not really much for them to do here and they get into a lot of trouble– touching things they’re not supposed to and stuff. They get bored. The layout in the park isn’t good. What they need is more room for the kids. The way it’s set out, well, it’s just not happening. My car is on holiday with my boyfriend at the moment. My children go to the school just up the road.
I wish I’d never let my parents go overseas. That would have to be my greatest regret. I miss them like crazy. They’ve been over there five years and never met my youngest son. It gets really hard at Christmas and birthdays and Mothers Day. I get really emotional.
When I was a little girl, I was into marching and we came third in the Nationals. I’d have to say that was my best experience.
I’m a close family person. It was great when my sister came down to visit me here. I’d been really lonely and she got me to meet people. She’s very outgoing. She puts me in my place.
I like being with my family. I like meeting new people. I like marching. Having fun. I’d like to own my own home and have a good job. That’s what I’d like in ten years.
And have my mum and dad back.
