We land in Adelaide in two weeks time.
Leaving behind our very loved doggies.
Our mortgage rate finishes in 6 months time and we won't get another (after 5 years of paying) as the house has low equity and nearly all mortage companies want over 10% deposit. Fuel is £1.40 per litre. I've been made redundant twice in 3 years after working solidly for 30. My Husband, Tony is a carpenter/builder and has lost 3 jobs in 3 years due to downturns. There are NO decent jobs (over 2.5 million unemployed). We've had the coldest summer I can remember. 2 days of 28 degrees. Last winter was freezing -12 to -15 some nights. It's mid October now and we have our log burner roaring. Traffic is terrible with jams all day. OAP's are a burden and Not looked after. The beaches are packed if it's a nice day (if) and are not very nice anyway..............
I could go on and on but my fingers will cramp.
Yer, you come back to the UK. It's GREAT!
Think I'll get my head down, get on that plane, make some mates and look after ourselves for a change.
Now I know why we want to leave. Feel so much better.
