Meg, are you back living in China or still living in Australia? If you are still living in Australia I am hoping you will continue to blog about your life there. Aside from myself I think there are many people here who have enjoyed and learned from your blogs.

I am living in Australia, though I do miss my parents and family in China. I would like to write some more blogs when I have time.
In the last ten months, I have been really busy, as a French international student's volunteer parents from May to August, helped my son with his driving licence in August and helped him get a casual job in September after he got his licence; and helped to celebrate my son's 18th birthday in November.
I worked much on my garden from Feb to May, then I began to have a job in a company in May, then have another job in August, so I am working for two bosses now.
In November, my husband and I began to build our drive way gate and fencing, we plan to finish before new year, it is a really big project, not easy, thank my husband's hard work and thank my son's help.
2017 will be more excellent. (f)(f)(f)(d)(d)(d)

Meg, good to hear you and your husband are doing well. You now have 2 jobs, a hubby, son and an international student, this keeps you so busy, helping you to acclimatise to Aussieland on a daily basis, which in my opinion is wonderful. I understand you miss your family and friends in China, I admit I miss my family and country when I am in China or other countries even if I am away for 2 weeks (giggle) As I am an avid gardener I am quite curious as to wether your garden survived with your busy schedule? I remember the pictures you posted in one of your blogs and your garden looked wonderful.
I must say I have followed your journey via your blogs quite keenly as your story gives me insight into the female Chinese mind, this helps me in my own relationship with my partner. Life stories like yours, Barry's, Imi's, Johns, Peter's etc can only help the men and women here understand each other better from their experiences.
How is your everyday driving these days? You were able to help your son gain his driving license, did this experience help your own driving skills? As a chinese woman living in another country how many times per year do "you" feel the "need" to travel back to China for visits?

Thank you for your message, I just finish my holidays today and I can write here now :)
It is not easy for me to find a good job here in Australia, it took me some time to adjust myself to the different environment. I realize the first important thing is to try to keep happy heart, not only for me, for my family as well. With my help, my son got his driving licence and got his first casual job last year.
The two jobs I have are only casual, so I don't need to work really hard, if I want to stay at home some day, I will ask for leave, just like this month, I am on holidays :)
As a daughter, I love and miss my parents in China, very much. They are 70s. They help me too much in my life. All my family are very close. In last years, I traveled back to meet them once a year.
As a Cinese woman living in another country, how many times per year do I feel the "need" to travel back for visit? The question is not easy to answer. Two years ago, my dad was ill in hospital, I felt worried, but I couldn't travel back at that time, I lost my sleep. Now with my sisters and brother's help, their health is getting better and better, I hope they can travel to visit us in Australia some day :)
