Quick update as I have been in Perth almost a week now... time by the beach is definitely helping sort things out in my head, and am glad I took all your advice and didn't book the first flight back to the UK.
So am thinking that I am going to stay in Adelaide, at least for the short-term, and see if I can make a go of things on my own. I know I would kick myself in the future if I didn't at least try - if it works out then great, if not well that's just life I guess!
Am planning on heading back to Adelaide by next weekend. Being by the beach here in Perth has made me realise how much I do want to be by the coast so I'm thinking about looking for a rental / house-share in Glenelg.
While I look around at rentals I want to book myself into a reasonably-priced hotel / apartment / B&B in Glenelg to make sure it is where I want to be. So any recommendations on where to stay please?
So far I'm looking at the Best Western Ensenada Motor Inn on Colley Terrace and also the Comfort Inn Haven Marina. Don't really want to pay more than $120 per night... although the Oaks Plaza is very nice as I stayed there last year, so may be tempted!
Any suggestions would be most welcome and thanks for all your hep again.
And for all those that offered to meet up for coffee, beer and wine - I will be in touch soon to get some dates in the diary!
