Default I'm off . . .

to the Cyprus board. We've had enough of the school here and so the kids and I are moving to Cyprus in July. However, I will lurk round this board as at heart I am Middle Eastern . . . and the Cyprus board is very boring.

Not sure whether to say hurray or boo hoo.

No, husband staying here - he will 'commute' whenever possible, we are British citizens so can live there easily as it's now part of the EU just have to register as aliens or some such, we are really hopeful about the school we've put the children into - gets good results etc. and tbh it can't possibly be as bad as here, we are going to the South.

It's a half way house for us between UK and ME - can't imagine every living in UK again and we have a house there and like the lifestyle etc. So, inshallah, all will be well there. It will hopefully be a more normal lifestyle for the children, Sauid really isn't a great palce for teenagers.

Hey Nic, sounds like a great move. Hubby is only a couple of hours away. have a friend who plans to do similar, dump the wife and kids in Cyprus while he enjoys the fleshpots of Jeddah.

She's not complaining!
