Default Who is past the 7 year itch?!

Well, they do say that moving house is one of the most stressful things that you can do in your lifetime and we are all hoping to move to the other side of the world so I am hoping you all respond with rock solid foundations!

DH and me have been married for 12 years this year but have been together for at least 16. Our only itch is with this country, not each other!

Care to share? Go on, humour me, I'm just being nosey again! (Well, there's nothing else to do while I sit here and wait for my house to sell.......)

My 7 year itch was dragging us all back to the UK to live last year, it cost more than a divorce and can't shake the swine off

I must be impatient but I didn't have to wait 7 years for my itch. But still waiting for someone to come along and scratch it.

Hi Craig

How's the marathon training going? Hubby is injured and will try and run again at the weekend and that will be decision time.......

And back on topic - you'll be fine - you've had your itch!

Hope you're right about the itch The training is going OK but not as much as I would like for 40 days to go. Took 10 days out last week to go skiing in the dolomites (what a bind!) and drank faaaar too many beers with the boys (don't usually drink more than a glass or 2 of wine).

Whats the hubbys injury? had a few in my time so may be able to help.
