Thanks for taking the time out to reply, from the sounds of it you have a few stories or 2 to tell lol :0)
Your comments about Adelaide have helped put my mind at ease regarding whether or not we have we choosen the right place to move our family too.
The feel I have got from the forum is that we wont be and aren't alone in how we feel and we wont be alone when we eventually get there which means a great deal, even the dog has a friend already, good old Trev lol
Have to admit I think we were all having abit of a wobble last week, which I am told is natural, which is also what prompted me to post, I also did what you said and asked myself the question "why did we get on this rollercoaster in the first place"?! and then I was fine again.
The IOM is a nice safe place to bring your children up, but it's an Island and that also places restrictions on your children and us for any opportunity to better our lives, I know its not going to be easy and its going to be hard work but we are willing to do whatever it takes to make it through, we are as the Muskateers said "one for all and all for one" or something like that.
Maybe when we get to Adelaide you can give us a few more words of wisdom.
