just like to say hi to everybody,yep wer ready to return after 15 months of being back in UK,just put the house on market this week so fingers crossed.
We started the visa process back in April 08 just like everybody else we had are ups n downs just like evrybody on here,eventually June 09 we had are 176 visa,house was sold ,flights booked end Aug 09 we set off on our dream there was me Max(42) my wife Debs (43) and Gracie (6) but also have a (20)yr old daughter paige who we managed to get her on our visa but decided to stay in UK,which is hard leaving her behind.
We landed in Adelaide and stopped with freinds who lived in Coromandel Vally got work after 2 weeks got a rental after 6weeks Henly Beach,everything was going fine Gracie started school then oh was on her own.I think thats when it all started she was thinking of family back home especially Paige who we left behind, i was getting the wrong fibes from her of oz like evrey newby does missin mum missin sister but we held on the walks at Henly beach was fantastic just a graet lifestiyle plu Glenelg yep this is it for us. We skyped alot which sometimes leave you more upset when you can tell things are just not wright back home anyway it was getting to her more n more,little digs all the time like food more dearer clothes etc etc.the usual anyway one thing lead to another my mother took ill not good when your 24hrs away but we new this and thought that we would be strong about illness to family and again the daughter was a big pull it just wasnt working wer she was renting she could olny just afford the rent never mind gas elecky n food on top.
So then the worse news ever a phone call off my brother that my mother had just died,that was it we wer coming back a few phone calls we had sorted removals,flights and did a flit on the rental we arrived back end of December 09 just 4 months after landing,We stopped at mother in laws must admit it was a bad time for work just after xmas building trade always slow this time of year.it was good seeing friends family again but and a big but had we done the wright thing is the grass really greener.I ended up buying my mother house totally renovated top to bottom.Then we made the decission that once we had totally finished we would put it on the market and giv adelaide another go,so this is us now ready to do it all again and very exited the all of us.
Sorry for going on abit but ive been reading all threads since our return back 09 and just wanted to get it of my chest,god i feel better now and ready for our return to OZ thanks again Max......
