Default One year ago this very day

One year ago today Me and my son left our home in england, we left my daughter and my sons sister, we left his mother, a girl I'd been with for 25 years and we left every single person we knew and loved. My parents, my sons grandparents, aunties, uncles, his school mates and his football team mates.

not bloody easy i can tell ya, but today we're going to the beach and everyone we left is still miserable and still sick of the rain, the government, the youth of today, the petrol prices, the housing slump, the credit crunch etc etc etc

Was it the right thing to do, hell yeah!

( I think )

I'd like to say thank you to everyone who helped me through some very dark days last year.

Well done to both of you. Not at all easy as you say. Enjoy your day at the beach.

I remember when you first posted and how sorry I felt for you with your situation.

You turned it around mate and built a new life for you and your boy, you got on with it and sorted everything out.

Well done mate, you deserve to be happy.

Your story should be an inspiration to all the doubters.

Congratulations on making it to your first anniversary of living in Australia, and turning your lives around. Here's to many more happy years for both your and your son.

Thanks fellow expats, i genuinely appreciate all the help, advice and encouragement you have given me.

special mention has to go to Professional Princess, Asher, Sally C, Geordie mandy, Herrchook and Moneypen.

but thanks to every last one of you.

We've had a great day at the beach and hope there are many more to come.

Well done Jazzys, I knew you`ld get there, you`ve done one year so the future is looking bright for you and your lad, from now on things can only look better, glad you had a good weekend, I reckon your girl will come around and your x will regret she didn`t stick with you

Nice to hear that you made it to the first year - the best of wishes to you and your lad - and my fingers crossed for one day your daughter will open her eyes and see the real deal (and I know she will - one day!)

Is she seriously regretting it?

Oh my god what would you do if she came out to Oz to try again?

I remember your first post and I felt so sorry for you

My god man have you done well, you have proved that with the right attitude, guts and determination that you can do it.

Shame we wont get to meet up and have a few beers - actually there are a few people on here I would like to have some beers with
