Hi everyone, another newbie, just thought I should introduce myself, tell my story and become part of this community ! Its all getting a bit real now ! We emigrated Sydney, then Perth back in 1999 and stayed until the homesickness set in and citizenship gained. Within 6 months of being back in the UK we knew we had made a mistake ! After busying ourselves with 3 x children and a sucessfull business, we're now in the process of wrapping it all up and heading back - Adelaide looks good !!?? Basically we have grown out of this house and our decision was made, finding a nice house here, with space around isn't happening ! The long winters have been too long ! The summers have been too cold and wet, the kiddies dont get out too much (although they are out on a bike ride now in the pouring rain) working all year for 2 weeks in the sun is not a way of life is it ? I think because we have done it once - its a harder decision as we know the pitfalls and the challenges to overcome ! But boy are we ready ! Just thought this post might help anyone thinking of coming back, its worth sticking it out if you can ! It wont be easy this time with three children in tow - but its good to read your posts and see how you're all getting on. As soon as the business is handed over, the house will go on the market, god I'm nervous this time round, last time was an exciting adventure ! I'm sure its the right decision though ! Off to London next week to get our passports renewed and passports for the children. I'm sure i'll be dropping into this forum alot more from now on for help and advice, never been to Adelaide but it just feels right !
