I just wanted to say thank you to all the people who have posted in this particular forum about returning to the UK. It was reading through people's thoughts that helped me realise I needed to go home. I admire the people who have made this extremly difficult decision.
I have been here 6 years, 2 months. I met a man from Adelaide when I was working in London, he swept me off my feet, we fell in love and we lived in Adelaide together from 2006-2009. I finished the relationship and have been here, single, by myself ever since.
It's really hard not having a partner or family here. Even if I was in a relationship I think it would just delay me, not stop me moving back

Australia is great, almost too perfect....does anyone else feel like there in the Truman Show?
It's too barren and harsh for me, the landscape does nothing for me. I'm not a 'beach girl'. I live in the Adelaide Hills beacuse it reminds me of home!!!
I chose a person who happened to be from Australia, not Australia itself. My reason for being here no longer exists. I could be living in bloddy Africa if I had fallen in love with someone from there!! bakes my noodle!!
I miss things feeling familiar. As my ex (aussie) said when we were in London, "fed up of feeling stretched all the time"
It has taken 1 year for me to make this decision and I cannot describe the relief of just deciding. I feel much calmer and at peace. The move is on for June.
I am very excited!!!
(sorry for creating a new post just for me to ramble, I have never posted before and couldn't find a thread that I wanted to add too.)
