I completely agree with PP. Once you DH knows about your Mum's call and her plans to look at a move to Devon, he'll think you'll already have written Brissie off without even going there. It's now more important than ever to give the impression of really trying to give his plan a fair go. I'm not trying to say he's stupid and he'll fall for it. I don't think he'd be that naive. But try not to make out that you're now closed to his idea, before you've even got on the plane over east.

(Still think you'll end up back in Blighty at some point though, T. )

Talked to OH last night. He knows we'll never end up in Brissy now and you know what he said ? "It's o.k hun, you still go over for a holiday. The break will do you good" I do wonder why I am such a pain to him sometimes. I'm sure most girls are the same; I get so frustrated and scared and angry at the whole situation, that I just get verbal diarreah and let rip at him. Poor sod. Make mental note; be nicer to hubby. It isn't really his fault we're here. I could've said no.

Hey, wish i was coming with you Trace, gee i need a break. You know what, my head is painfully sore with all the worry i am doing, constant headaches and my hair is falling out

Hubby has gone more Grey since we came here. I'm loosing the plot!!!

Hopefully you will feel so much better when you come back, more positive about where you want to be.

hey Rach....hang on to your hair love!!

Are you still going to hang around for citizenship? If it's making you feel this bad, don't you want to just cut your losses and bugger off?

I do understand if you do hang around for the ceremony though. You never know what the future might bring. Having said that, if this drought keeps up...there won't be much of a place to return to, especially over east.

I want to go NOW. No point in hanging around at all is there really. But just got one problem..Paul For some reason he thinks citizenship is everthing. He can shove it up his jacksey for all i care.

I want to return to UK with a full head of hair and sain.

Maybe i will leave him here. That would make he move quickly. Ha!!!

It's a shit isn't it? Your ceremony is such a long way off. I sometimes feel like I've yet to do the hardest 18 months. It seems forever away. I know how you feel.

I've been feeling not quite so sick to the stomach homesick for the last few weeks, you know, chance of a new adventure, new start away from Perth looming on the horizon etc, then......Mum called last night, well, you could've blown me down with a feather when she said "Sweetheart, Bob (her chap) and I are going to do a rekkie in Devon. We're thinking of moving there." This has thrown me completely back into turmoil as Devon is where we would be moving to if we were to go back to the UK. Mum currently lives in Herefordshire. So, if she does move there, that means all of the family would be there, OH's and mine.

Now, I don't want to go to QLD, not even for a rekkie, just in case I do like it, I just want to go back as quickly as possible and have all of the family close to us. How fab!

OH will sh*t a brick when he wakes up and I break the news. He will know that my heart will not be into going to QLD. He knows I won't give it a fair rekkie. I can't really cancel as I will be letting my mate down who really does want to go and live there. Bugger. Money wasting exercise coming up!

Just wanted to vent. So excited at the thought of being back in the UK with ALL of the family close to us. God, I love 'em!
Damn, we'll miss you in Qld
