sounds to me you should go, you've done most of the stress selling up and you have a clear start now, hesitation takes too much out of people have a goal and it will all come together. I rehomed one of my dogs privately and it was a fabulous home, lovely people, Labrador people and lived in the country side, i knew my lab would be so well looked after and a good life for a lab. I was so upset letting him go but it was good for him too
Poor Jane & Tony !! you have been through the mill !!
BUT! there are more like you than you think !!
Poor 40 somethings...whos had some bad luck...
I reckon you have to do it, beacause if you dont you will spend the rest of your life wondering what if we had done !!
At least you WILL get some nice free sunshine.
You regret the things you didn't do rather than the ones you did. Take a different outlook on the house £££ - is it a real loss or just not as much profit as a slimy estate agent told you you'd get?
You may love it here or you may thing its the worst thing you ever did. Either way you'll be much richer for the experience. Just how dull can it be to be one of those people who live in the same street/ village / town as they grew up in.
Don't underestimate the move. It is major and things are hard / frustrating for a few months but the tattoo on the picture above says it all.
I think you have to do it, or you will always regret it. We came over 6 1/2 years ago, on an exchange rate of 2.4, we didn't stay long and went back to the UK for 5 years and always regretted it. We made the move back last September, we have more money in the UK but it is hardly worth anymore here.
Don't regret not coming, at least give it ago, as my dad always says "you can always make more money" (well we hope he is right). You can always go back to the UK if you don't like it, but you may not have the chance to come back to Australia.

I'm a typical 'dog-person'. I really miss my two mutts back in South Africa, but I also believe that you can't make life decisions around them. I assure you that if you found them good homes and their basic needs were met, they won't even miss you. Sounds harsh, but its true. Dogs aren't capable of human emotions. Their relationships are built on need and stimulus and as as humans often misinterpret these for something more 'human'
There have been many documented cases around the world of a dog-owner dying (usually an old person) and the dog actually starting to eat the individual. It's 'dog eat dog' out there, as they say!

EEEEEE That's a nice thought. What about the dogs that pine away when their owners leave them?
Thanks to every-one for your kind words of support. I think we are getting tha last minute 'jitters'!
We'll be ok. Gotta try it and see.
Wow! Oakham! Bet you miss that old place eh? I used to work at RPC (lovely) xxxxxxx
Hope to meet you all in November at the monhly 'meet'
Lots of love xxxx
I was in the same situation, rehomed one dog, and hes soooo happy and spoilt, we get updates via my sil. my other dog had to be PTS, she was blind and the vet said it would be cruel to subject her to the move or rehoming. was utterly heartbreaking.
moving over here - its a rollercoaster, but worth the ride xxx
