It was lovely driving down the M56 seeing all the different colours of green in the fields, and the cows and sheep, old buildings, and all things familiar that we took for granted before.

We are all tired now, but all the family are here tonight and its so good to be home with them, we are all having a curry from the Indian!

lol I know, we brought some rain with us, not sure where from though as we didn't see much of it in Perth in the 6 months we were there!

I'm quite enjoying this weather though, although I'm sure that feeling wont last! lol

Thanks everyone for all your good wishes!

The kids have gone back to their old schools today, and Mike has started back at his old job.

Everything has been great so far, everyone has really welcomed us home. Its been fantastic to see friends and all our nieces and nephews, especially my new nephew who is only 3 weeks old

I've been shopping in Asda & Next and Im going to my old hairdresser tomorrow to finally get a decent haircut!

We still havent found a car, but Mike's Dad has been letting us use his for now, so we have been able to get around.

So, still absolutely no regrets about coming home

Really pleased things are going well for you all. Even though I don't really want to go back I am having a yearning for shopping at the likes of Asda, Next, River Island

Keep us updated with things as well. Always good to know how you are getting on.

Lynne

Thanks Lynne. How is everything going for you? Have you decided when you are coming home yet?

Everything is still wonderful here.... Mike has had a big pay rise as well. We knew that he was getting one, but its a lot better than what we thought and he is getting a company van next week! I've got a car, and I have my old job back at the hospital too!
Our daughter who is 14, is going back into soccer here, she has always played football and she was in a soccer academy in Perth. We have just found out that she will be having trials for Everton in the next few weeks, so we are keeping our fingers crossed for her!

So far so good, we are hoping to get to Spain for a week or two later in the year, so things are definately looking up for us (fingers crossed)
