I know when i make the move on the 3rd July there's no return for me, if i wasn't sure about the move then i wouldn't do it, i don't think anyone should make the move being unsure when there's kids involved and shipping animals, its not fair to them. I am so 100% plus sure about what i am doing and that's for a better quality of life for my kids and they can learn from it and hopefully grow into better people and be wiser from a change of life. if work was hard to get then i would do any type job to get by until the right job came up.
its gonna be hard but everyone should be wise and old enough to know that and once you make the move think about yourself and the family and to listen to others whinging and not liking it, that's when ones doubts start.
I hope everything here is as you believe it will be but sometimes being 100% sure is not enough - and if that is the case, who cares? You (or whoever this might apply to!) will have tried and that is a success in itself.
Yes Paula, we came back to the same area. Our daughter went back to the same class at school, basically she just skipped a term!
Liz, Rich, Hattie, Rory and Trev the dog.
As difficult as you think it will be starting again here, double it and you will be somewhere near the task involved. You dont know until youve lived it.
making such a huge move should be taken with much care, ambition, open mind and vast amount of research. then you know what your going too, especially with kids and animals being taken along and with animals having to do quarantine. I believe no one should make the move with doubts about the move, everyone will have the many questions and what to do attitude, that's normal and its actually part of life where ever people are.
what i laugh at is people making the move clueless and think its a holiday mode for the rest of their life. Go home and blame Australia
Now now people...
I'm reminded of giving birth when I read these threads. My partner and I would always ask about people's birth stories from fellow moms. I discovered that these stories almost became surrounded in folk-lore! Some had had massive, extended deliveries, various drugs, various tearing and ripping...and almost always knew somebody who had a baby be very poorly at the hospital I went to (or, a case of malpractice) VERY few people said, 'ignore everyone else, it'll be better than you think' and that's how I summarise it...very hard work, but better than I thought. In fact, just one lovely lady told me this while shopping for car seats!
You see, childbirth is somewhat of a rite of passage I believe for Women...and to emigrate is the right of passage of the members on here. There will always be the doomsdayers saying how tough it was, that there are problems here, graffiti there and bikers killed their cat...but for most, Id be willing to bet that it was somehwhat like most women's childbirth...better than they thought.
Fingers crossed for us all...we're in the emigration third-trimester!
