I`m hoping my wife does the same when we get there :D
Donny, you go for it mate and I hope your son and you have a lovely life out there:)
All very honest postings. Well done Donny in making the decision to stay.
I'd love to think "we" were a hundred percent sure of what we're doing but quite often I get the jitters. I daren't say to my OH as I'm the one that's instigating all this. In fact..just the other day he said "I'm getting depressed with this whole thing". I immediately thought he meant he didn't want to emigrate to SA.. but it turned out he was depressed about there being no news about the visa ... huge sigh of relief on my part when I realised that's what it was.
Just watched Celtic win the League and my OH and two sons at it. I didn't see any of them in the crowd..but I did see Kieran's hat on one of the celtic players. A skinkly cowboy hat with hand made corks on it. I made 16 of those for xmas day for all family to wear around the table and couldn't believe it when I saw he'd managed to give it to one of the players. He'll be so chuffed. They're still travelling back from Dundee right now. But it seems a hugely fitting way to leave their beloved football and finally move to Oz. I hope they all see that and don't ever regret that "I" took them away from it all. :-( But as I see it ..they've travelled the world following them..and it's time for something new. When we come back to visit they can always go see them again.
Jeez..what a ramble. guess I'm feeling guilty about taking them away from it all.
Still..onwards and upwards. They did go and see Adelaide playing at home when over in July last year and enjoyed it..so I'm sure they'll pick up footie here too :-)
Catch you all later
