Well, here's my ten cents worth...

It's stinking hot, it's miles from anywhere, people can't speak properly and hate you if you do and there are things that can kill you hanging around the washing line.

Don't feel you've 'made your bed', many peeps on here have to'd and fro'd from the UK to Oz more than once, remember Libby, she did it 3 times and last I heard she was back in the UK for good. If you want to come back enough you can and will make it happen xxx


5 Years, blimey that has gone quick, if only I was strong enough to say not a chance, we would be so much happier.

We will go back at some point he knows how I feel,and we agreed we need to sort it out and make some firm plans for the future, and not just for us but for our children, I don't want to keep dragging them back and forth, or keep hurting eachother. x x x

And that too, I was trying to be polite.
I do have to correct my children when they say can I have some wader, or I have been invited to a pardy

You need to do it before they get too old, before you can turn around it will be teenage years, boyfriends, fiancees, husbands, grand-kids ............and you may have to come home on your own......

You can be less polite here than you can on the Barbie forum.

At least you have a decision point in mind which must be a bit of help in coping with the sheer tedium of the day to day stuff. I hope things turn out the way you want them to - nothing beats belonging IMHO!!!

Yes it can be quite scary to face up to the Utopians I agree, but I have a thick skin to face up to their negativity about Broken Britain LOL!!

Make them listen to Gillard. That'll stop their pardying ways.
