Anyway chuck - have a good one and I'm waiting with bated breath to see what decisions 2008 brings you!!xx

Do you know what isleofmanmike, I think once we have placed ourselves on the migration rollercoaster it is often very difficult to get off - constantly seeing the country you are not currently in, through the old rose tints.

However saying that people do go back a second time and it all works out fine, BUT then you do also get your serial migrators that ping pong back and forth several times!! If you got bored in Perth have you thought of trying over East this time?

At the end of the day best advice I've got is that we are all different, what is right for one of us is not right for the other - best thing is too trust your gut feel and your own judgement.

As for me, you may have guessed from my post that I now know I definitely belong in the UK and am more than happy to be back. However a little piece of my heart (albeit a very tiny weeny piece!) will always be back in Perth.

I wish you all the best whatever you decide to do.

Thanks for your message, the different thing for me is that my mum, brother ansd sister live in Perth. My sister been there 34 years. My mum and brother should be in the guiness book of records for PING PONGING back and forth. I would guess they have moved aussie uk aussie no less than TWENTY tmes, twice in one year. Now my mum is in her 70's and I think she has finally stopped this and lives in a flat in Freo.....We now live on the Isle of Man, been here seven years, loved it at first but now getting bored at living on a small island in the Irish sea.....There is no utiopia.....the grass is always greener...or is it

Ah family being in perth makes life that bit more complicated! Very true there is not Utopia but hopefully at some point you will find the place where you finally feel settled and at peace.
