Hi folks, not been on here for ages, and feel a bit anxious about things!
After 4 years, i am now beginng to wonder if i should go for citizenship or not......
Thing is, i seem to spend my life working, shopping, cleaning up.......all a bit dull really. I feel my life is more work oriented than ever before.
As i get older, i find myself less able to "mix", something i wasnt really afraid of before. I know the meet-ups happen, usually when i am working!!, yet i never seem to pluck up the courage, or energy to go to them.
The kids are planning to attend Uni back in the UK, an expensive turn of events!! 1 will go next year, the other in 2 years; so there goes my excuse for staying here. Uni fees here would be just as expensive, as without citizenship, no hecs-help!! Gotta keep those options open!
I actually like Adelaide, and although the OH hasnt got a job at the mo, he does love it here and doesnt want to go back.
We have a reasonable home in a nice area, but i only know 2 neighbours to speak to..........i get more conversation at the IGA!!
I find myself worrying a lot, to leave would have me feeling like i failed; to stay might have me committed to a looney bin.
I have only once felt homesick, about 6 months in, and since then.....nada! Till now, that is.
Like a lot of expats, the change over to Aussie life has been a rollercoaster ride, and im not suggesting for 1 minute anyone found it a breeze.
Just now the decision can wait, but honestly, does anyone else have the collywobbles about the pros and cons of the next step??
Anyway, thanks for listening............
