I'm German, too I've lived in the States for a while, what brought me to an English speaking forum.

@Saphira.. where in Germany do you live?

Hi! I'm living in Siegen, not very far away from you, Holywoodmum!
Where about are you in Germany, Bentlee?

I moved here about a year ago(I'm from New Zealand), but we spent 5 months in Florida, a month in China and a month in South Africa. It's a small town where we live and It's fairly lonely! Especially because my german isn't that great :P

That's great news! How come you guys are moving here?
My DH is German, and is working here until a job comes up in NZ.

DH has got a job in Wuppertal, he starts on 2 Jan, but because of the notice period in my work, I won't move with the girls until Easter...
So pleased to hear about the kindergarten place, was starting to get concerned as we contacted so many kita and had so many negative replies!!
Do you have kids too? EDIT: sorry, just saw you bit saying TTC! Hope we both get our BFPs soon!

Yeah I hear it can be quite tough!
My sister in law used to live in Witten (about 30mins away from Wuppertal), and it took them a while to get their son into one. Only then he refused to stay there, and the Kindergarden kept ringing her up and making her take him home!

Woah, that's a killer long notice period!
And no, no kids, not yet! although, 2ww! So maybe soon!

The notice period is only 2 months, just as I'm a teacher you can only resign at certain times of year to finish at the end of term... so it's 2 months notice, but to finish at Easter (I missed the deadline to leave at Christmas...)

Also in 2WW when do you plan on testing?!
