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!!!!

Can I ask what changed - I remember reading at the beginning of the year that you were returning then you decided to stay

Hi Kris

It doesn't seem that long ago that you pm'd me as we already had our visas and were just down the road in Essex.

It is a shame things haven't worked out and good luck when you get back to sunny Essex, which we all know is Gods own County
