i cant put my finger fully on 3 reasons so here goes...............
1..was able to emigrate here, so why not it is an adventure and chance to do something different
2..IMO,(others would disagree), far better education prospects,especially for my oldest as he wants to learn, youngest goes to school for the social side of it
3..The weather is better.
Sorry thats the best I can do, you all know me.
I cant say I am loving it in SA as I still have to work, but then I would get bored if I didnt!!! I guess I would get bored too in Utopia (if there is such place).
Just so my post doesnt look too negative...
If given the chance to go back to UK, would I? NOPE.
Do I wish I had come here years ago ..DEFINATLY
I think the kids especially the younger one (who was good at sport in the UK) would have thrived here and she might have been standing on the podium in the London Olympics getting a medal for something or other
