I don't have kids but I sure as hell wouldn't move without planning if I did. Before you ask, I have moved countries within 24 hours because either the time has felt right or I got a good offer, but then again, I only have to look after myself. I have been an expat for 16 years and lived in 3 countries so I am not new to this.
I really applaud your conviction and wish you all the best, but to be honest I am not sure that you have thought this through properly.
It is wonderful that you have such enthusiasm and I wouldn't want to take that away from you, but if it is going to be right for you to move to Dubai then it will always be right and it won't matter if you draw breath and wait a few months!
just my thoughts.
Hey Patsy

Respect your comments fully!

Have lots to say, but will put it in a nutshell!

Stewart and I have been coming to Dubai, business and pleasure 4-5 times a year for 7 years. We decided after the first visit when the time was right we would do it!
Times just never been right! Until now!

We have completed extensive refurbishments on our home and have been made an unsolicited offer!

We have an apartment here which we plan to keep and will be our bolt hole if needed!

Have been applying through the agencies, whenever we have the time, but to be honest they are slow, really bad at getting back and I don't feel representing us very well.
Have been on another forum for a couple of months, got to know some great people and they all have said 'just get on a plane... come' you will find work!

With regards to my daughter. She is three years old. Travelled everywhere with me from 3 weeks old! She isn't in full-time education and see's the world and life as one great big adventure!
I have always tucked her under my arm and got on with life!
She doesn't know any different. She is happy, has food in her tummy and is loved, adored and cherished!

I'm a bit like a swan: serene outside and paddling like f*** underneath!

I have always made everything I want work. And don't fail!
Just got to find the way to do it!

This is my way, love it or hate it! It's who I am and has provided a amazing lifestyle to date!

Of course, I totally understand your comments, totally!
But it's who I am Patsy!

She has..... since January, but the law doesn't require it!

It was a way of introducing her to other children outside her nanny circle of friends. Increasing her social skills!

She is only 3, takes each day as it comes, if she has something better going on in her life she misses school (because she is not legally required to be there).

Bare in mind since she started she had a month off for Easter, came away with me on two trips, and has 9 weeks off for the summer. Isn't due to go back until October.

Kinda not important if things change, in my mind!

wow an expat forum where people are actually active... I'm so glad I found this post because I'm pretty much doing the same thing... makes me feel less crazy... although i'm not going as far as selling a house or anything...

sorry for hijacking the thread but someone did mention the marketing field wasn't paid as well as in the uk... is that true? just from looking on the net i'm finding higher paid jobs all the time
