Re: Been back 2 months

Hi Louise

Sorry to hear you are confused! I think most people who emigrate are because you are never 100% sure if you have done the right thing or not.

It was a joint decision for us to move...

Re: Been back 2 months

Thanks everyone.

Re: Child behind in school when return to UK?

I don't know if this helps, but my daughter was almost 8 years old when we left the UK to live in WA. We spent nearly 2 and a half years there and I worried about how she would fit back into a UK...

Re: Back in the UK - 4 days update!

After 2 and a half years away, we had forgotten the variety of shopping that's available here - far more than there was in WA.

We'd also forgotten how small the roads are and how muddy everything...

Re: Back in the UK - 4 days update!

Hi

Ingleby is basically the same - lots of houses and not much space between them! There are a lot more apartments and semi-detached houses too to make it more affordable for first home buyers.

Hi All

The container is being loaded by Kents as we speak! The time has flown by since we got an offer on the house to now. It really is happening - our move back to the UK.

Re: Finally...we have a date for going home!

Re: Who to contact when back in the UK?

Wow! That's amazing! We haven't met anyone in Perth from our local UK area. It would have been nice to - just to start off with something in common. We plan to return to the same "new" bit of...

Re: Finally...we have a date for going home!

I think that because we will have been here for 2 years out of the last 5 (at the point of our PR visa expiring) we can apply. The other conditions of getting the RRV show the above condition, then...

Re: Finally...we have a date for going home!

Re: Who to contact when back in the UK?

Thank you for that - I'll have a good read through.

Re: Who to contact when back in the UK?

Hi Don

What a lovely place! It looks very similar to the area we are heading back to - TS17 5AL.

Hope you will keep us all up-to-date on how you find life back in the UK.

Love

Re: Who to contact when back in the UK?

Hi Don

Thank you for your kind wishes.

Very best wishes to you and your wife on your return.
