Hi Ali, I really feel for you too.
Sometimes I stop and wonder that when it comes to the crunch can i go thru with it.
I only have 1 sister who is a lot younger than me and as our mother died when she was very young we are very close so every time I mention the OZ word she clams up but i have to think of what is best for Stephen, the boys and I.
It IS a big step but there is no law that says we can never come back.
My granny died 2 weeks ago and although she lived in England and me in Northern Ireland I didn't make it over in time to see her, we all went over for the funeral but it is my memories of her as I was growing up that I want to remember and not that day.
You are putting your children's future ahead of everything else and as a mother thats what you are meant to do, think of the wonderful life they will have and as I have been telling myself I would rather go out there and find out if it is right for us that hit the age of 45 and spend the rest of my life regreting that I didn't give it a go.
Good luck to you all and good luck for the flight that is the bit I am dreading with my 4 kids.
p.s the woman at the toddler group is a witch don't listen to her:)
OK no more childish name calling, it's obvious what goes round comes around :(
Hi Ali & family,
Read your post a few times thought I'd already left message but I don't think I have! Doh! Just wanted to wish you guys good luck hope the flights go well. Also don't listen to that lady at the playgroup she's probably annoyed with herself that she didn't have the courage to give it a go herself!! Keep smiling. Good luck
