I really glad to hear you decided to hang in there even when things seemed so bad you were ready to book that flight home. Good for you
Good luck with the next year
Thanks for the lovely replies everyone, it means a lot to us! Unfortunately we won't be having much of a celebration tonight, Rory has come down with croup and boy is he miserable! Ah well, better luck next year!

We are hoping to start the ball rolling in the next year or so (waiting to vist next year in May to get a feel for it so hopefully not too cold as may put us off - Yes we finally have some hot sun in Manchester took long enough to happen and will prob rain again in next day or so!
It is really helpfull to read your stories as we have all this to look forward to and hopefully can be mentally prepared as my husband is very much up for it 100% but I still have my doubts all I know is im sick of the weather, lack of space as every bit of green in being built on (and we live 5 minutes from the pennines and can't imagine what it will be like in the next 5 years) We are prepared for the cost of living as like most Brits thought everywhere would be loads cheaper than the U.K but now know thats not the case just hope we can still afford it.
The funny thing is that 6months ago I wanted to move to France and my husband wanted to move to Germany and as neither could agree we both thought we would be stuck here. Then all that changed when in Feb 2008 we went to Singapore and Malaysia on holiday and got talking to an English family who now live in Perth and we realised that the earth isn't as big as we thought! and with webcams can still see our family and friends.
So we are coming out to vist next May (my husbands work closes for whit otherwise would come in the warmer weather) and if we like what we see we will get the ball rolling so if anyone can recommend and places to visit or cheap hotels that would be a great help.
Thanks to everyone for all the help and advice we have received so far on PIA we really don't know what we would have done without you all.
