Our move back to the Uk
We left adelaide mid August after much debate & consideration.
We were there more or less three years & they were great! We didn’t love Australia or hate it just wasn’t home.
We always planned on giving it two years but gave it a bit more, we had a beautiful house & our son was in a brilliant school so we felt we had ticked all the boxes & given it our best shot. There was always a feeling of it was a house & not a home & although we don’t have a huge family it was friends & familiarity that we missed the most.
We always felt that Australia was ok for now but not forever & after hearing so many stories of people living there for 20 years & regretting not returning we didn’t want to become one of those statistics.
We haven’t stopped smiling since returning home our son has fitted back in with all his friends, I walk everywhere now which I missed being able to do in Adelaide. The things we used to moan about in the UK are still here but we now realise nowhere is perfect & home is where the heart is! We had a fantastic experience living “Down Under” but so happy we came home too.
It's a awful feeling being in Limbo it's nice now we can just get on with life rather than having the whole 'will we or won't we' debate!!!
Just our side of the story everyone is different & I know there are plenty of people that get off the plane & nerve look back :0)
