Well we head back to the UK next week after a year in Adelaide and are all very much looking forward to it!
As much as I would never slag off Adelaide (it's been good to us) we have decided (unanimously) that it is not where we want to live and that our lives in the UK were actually rather good! We would never have missed this opportunity and really have had a great year - met some fab people (and a few not so!) made true friendships and had a lot of fun. Mainly though, it has taught us just how much we already had in the UK - we were never disillusioned, running away, in debt, unhappy, had family problems - OH was offered a job and we thought we'd give it a go!
we are all rather philisophical about it and in no way sad, good life experience, but not the life we want to lead. Won't be ping ponging, as the path will be closed to us anyway now, which is the way we like it - we are drawing a line under this episode of our lives.
I am truly glad to see it work for some people, it's bloody hard work getting here, so if it comes good, it's well deserved! But going home is not an easy option, we have thought long and hard - but in our hearts it's right.
Best of luck to you all, whatever your current position, I hope all your dreams come true.
