Default My Turn Im Leaving on a jet plane.........

Well after 15 rollercoaster months we are leaving the sunny skys of Perth and heading home to sunny England and im sooooooooooo excited i cant tell ya!!!

We finally sold the house yesterday subject to finance (fingers Crossed) and should be leaving around the 16th August WAhoo!!!!

I have been reading everyones storys envious of those already gone and totally relating to everyone stuck or unsure what to do!!

We have had a great time and wouldnt change the experience but like many on here now and in the past when we were waiting for our visas dreaming of Perth and all it has to offer have decided its not for us, our family and friends and the kids growing up with family ties and stuff just mean more to ME than blue sky and nice beaches !!!

We have lived the "dream" but prefer reality so off we go back to the real world!!!

Good Luck to those on there way over to begin their journey and good Luck to those waiting to get back!!!!

I know what you mean!!!

I want to go home to be honest, but something tells me to wait for the ceremony. Can't have it all.

All the best to you all

How much longer do you have to wait ?
We did consider it but tbh we felt the longer we stay the harder it would be to go back especially for the kids and there schooling our eldest is 14 so had to consider her doing her GCSEs when we get back to the UK!!

Good Luck

Hey you, well done. Jon didn't tell us when we saw him yesterday that you'd sold the house, but maybe he didn't know then. Well then girl, it's all systems go now and of course, you know how much I envy you. We'll definitely see you in the next few weeks or so, but I'll ask you now. When's the party??

Kinross NOR - had loads and loads of viewings but no offer:curse: keep having a go at the real estate agents I told them the other day Im gonna sell this house myself soon, the agents are crap and couldnt sell their Grannies if they had too!!! I was in real estate years ago and like to think I know a bit about how to sell, one guy bought a couple through, walked right past the 5 bedroom!!! I said to him "Have you actually looked at these house details?" he just shrugged his shoulders!!!:curse:grrrrr absolute crap, if they dont move this house within the next month, we are taking it off with them.....
