Hiya....

.....from Manchester.

We are relocating to Volketswil with my OH's firm (in Winterthur) in early August. I've found this site by accident and it looks FANTASTIC. We live in Oldham and have 2 boys, aged 6 and 8. We are all trying to learn German but are running out of time so I suspect it might be easier once we are in situ.

Please excuse me not contributing much for a bit, I'm up to my ears trying to sort out the move, house selling etc - sure you all understand.....

Am looking forward to having a good browse later, but in the meantime I must do the boys tea then take them to rugby training..

Welcome to the EF, CrazyClogs (I was sure you'd be Dutch but then I got it, do they still wear clogs in Oldham?).

I hope your boys aren't too fixed on their rugby . There are a couple of (mainly expats) clubs around but vibrant it is not.

Re: Hiya....

Hi, thanks for the welcome.

Clogs aren't the usual footwear in Oldham these days (all the mills are derelict !!) but I have a pair of red flowery ones which are quite fun

Alas the boys are rugby mad but league not union, so they'll have to get their heads round a few differences anyway. Am trying to find out if the Zurich Rugby Club juniors would be an appropriate age/size at the moment. We've already had a broken collarbone since Easter mainly because my boys are rather small and some of the lads in the teams they've played against are rather massive (and I think in the real die-hard rugby league communities they wean their babies on pies and put raw meat in their milk)

Anyway, will "see" you anon, cheers again for the welcome

Hi

Hope you are adjusting well in Volketswil. I have relocated to Volketswil last August too and think it's a sweet village conveniently located.

See you around
