I have hardly seen her as she has been avoiding me like the plague and when I have seen here she has burst into tears - its been very hard. Myself and hubby have coped pretty much on our own, no help from either side of our family at all. ( not even little stuff on the last day like milk or help cleaning etc). yesterday I felt like the worst person on earth and it made it so much harde to do what we are doing

So im sat here at the airport - my tummy is doing a million summersaults my legs wobble when i stand up and i feel like running away
Luckily im sure I have read posts on here where people have felt last minute panic as they are getting ready to fly over - we have a very long day ahead of us with 2 kids and 4 animals - so for now i'll sign off and hopefully see you all at the other side - and I'll be feeling much better.
Good luck. Yep it's ashame that your mum couldn't have been more supportive, but then maybe shes finding it just too hard to accept and can't seem to show any other emotion right now, I'm sure things will settle down. Once she's seen you living your new happy life, she'll turn around I'm sure, and will be so happy to see how much happier you are, living in a place where you really want to be.
Where abouts in Vancouver Island are you moving too? Abit of a difference to Blackpool.. hey ?

No doubt the feelings you've had are totally natural, but am sure once settled your family and kiddies will love it !!!

All the best for the future.

Oh,.. Cowichan Valley - Yeh I was looking into this place a couple of months back. Seems like a beautiful place to live. 45mins from Victoria too which is good for a workbase.

What do you guys do for a living? Have you been lucky to find work in the area, or do you need to travel into Victoria?

Hey Tanah - my MIL behaved similarly. She's only doing it cause she'll miss you. When we made the decision to stay permanently here in Vancouver my wife felt like she was letting the whole family down....

Well a couple years on and things couldn't be more different. We've just dropped the in-laws at the airport after a two week holiday, they love it here, and are already raving about coming back next year. MIL is so happy to see us settled and really understands why we moved here...

Get settled in and enjoy the adventure. Your family will come round to things when they work out that they've got a free place to crash in Canada

I am sorry your family are not being supportive over this. FWISW my Inlaws (Hubby's family) refused to have any contact with us after they found out that we really planned to go through with emigrating. They were "off" with us after we told them we had applied, but once they found out taht we had the Visas and had put the house on the market they refused to speak to us at all.

I think last minute jitters are a perfectly normal reaction, as is feeling a little upset.

Good luck.....

Tell us where they live and we'll pop round and give them a slap for you!

Good Luck, don't be nervous, it's so exciting!

It's a shame they had to react this way, ateod you live your life for yourself and I wish you all the best with your new life.

Hopefully they will regret how they reacted and will be begging to come over on holiday soon.

Let us know you landed safely
