HOWEVER my hubby used his better judgement and said lets try we were offered an excellent deal at al raha whilst i though like you nice houses but not for me and my family, he gave me a shove and said lets get things into perspective they go to the school there , my job will move in 3 months to nearer there , mostly the company wil maintain it , its huge practically speaking its perfect, so i begrudgingly accepted i havent been in too long but its growing on me the folks are nice its pretty the kids love it they dont have a long drive to school and if the family are happy then my life is fine so you do need to look at things from a different perspective and say well we will give it a try if you dont like it one year on you can change and be looking in the meantime, if you stress to your family that you can drive most places it should be fine , i was determined to look really hard as i was sure something that was just my awkward cup of tea was out there the hunt was monotnous ( im very determined ) the family got sick and said aw mam we like it there ...the deal was done , and just to state ive been here a few weeks and i wont be moving anytime soon , so given the housing issues here maybe you need to reconsider ?By the way it stil is a better life as although it was party party party ( as much as you can with a few kids we now have to conform around school so there isnt as much opportunity to do anything more than we could in the city , but at weekends we hop in the car and off we go til when ever we like we are managing just fine...good luck with what ever you choose, im sure in the end it will be a better life than before it is for us and sometimes a change is a good as a rest ... all the best .

Lifes too short to read all the auxilliary fullstoppless and paragraphless waffle

i don t love it, i accept it clearly some peoples careers are so mind numbing they have time to sit around being obnoxious fools with nothing better to do than sit at a message board half your life,pulling others to bits, whilst others are way too busy to care whether grammar is in place or not. message boards are a place for advice ,not a display of eloquence, since obviously you must have a phd in linguistics you should try to work on your people skills as obviously you are still trying to master the bombastic expat stance over here keep, trying son you;ll make it one day .
