And I'm really surprised you see the need to post here...

Haven't you found the Barbie yet?

Dont be so ridiculous, its statements like that from you which just show how narrow minded some people really are!

Of course everyone did their homework and knew that xmas in Oz would be in the summer!! But does that then stop people listing that as something which they miss and which they will now look forward to?

I for one can't wait for a UK xmas again and everything that goes with it, which people have already mentioned and mainly being with family.

We also knew about leaving family as well but thats not to say it doesn't affect you when you're in Oz.

What a stupid comment to make, if you can't understand that some people want to be back home and miss certain aspects of life in the UK then you need to start looking at things from a different perspective.

This forum is for people who are seeking advice/help/support about (possibly) returning home. Most people posting here are in a difficult place - physically and/or emotionally. Telling them in effect that they were dumb to have moved abroad in the first place because they didn't do their homework (etc. etc) is *not* helpful.

Mmmm narrow minded.........no I won't go there. I can understand that some people want to return home for whatever reasons they have, as not everyone will settle in a new country. We all know it costs us a fortune and that we all miss family and things we are used to. The reason I asked the question (without touching an obviously very raw nerve) is what did you expect when you were going through the visa process, selling your house, leaving your job, family etc? Obviously family is a massive pull and some people want to return due to family matters, health etc. but some of the posts on here go on about missing the UK and the "great" things about it. If our lives were so fantastic and the country so fantastic, why bother with all the upheaval of moving abroad in the first place?? So not a stupid comment in my eyes, just somewhat perplexed.

No I live here now! (Not that I need respond to your peevish comments, but you seem awfully interested in something which doesn't concern you). Sorry Australia is not the paradise you think it is. Fortunately the world is full of different people who all appreciate different things..apart from the basics of course!
