Thumbs up It takes Balls!!!

Hi all,

Well its my first time here in the moving back to UK forum and I have been a member 6/7 months! had read all other posts and thought I would have a nosey and just could not resist putting in my 2 cents worth

After reading a few threads I can't believe that people would come on this part of the site and belittle people for returning to the UK If they don't like to hear about it, then don't bloody read it.

I am still waiting for my visa so maybe still in the rose tinted stage

However if I don't like Oz for whatever reason I hope I have the balls to admit it and come back to the UK. I really believe that it can't be an easy decision and takes courage to admit that maybe Oz (or wherever) is just not what you hoped for.

So good luck to all those moving back I for one think you have real strength

Axx

You know I've found that it is harder to make the decision for me to leave Canada than it was to come here. Maybe it is partly a feeling of failure, I don't know but I have days when I feel sad about leaving the place. I think you do open a can of worms when you move abroad, you find you love 2 countries for different things.

Ultimately, I do know that I'm happier in the UK though so I am looking forward to it. I appreciate your positive comments, thanks

Are you sure you're not a spy?

Very balanced outlook. You have the right attitude and attitude is everything in the expat game. Good luck to you!

Good post. Don't feel too much sympathy for them though, read enough of it and you will see that they give as good as they get.
