Re: Stay in LA or return to UK? Will appreciate thoughts

I think you'll be fine. It sounds like you've made up your mind, it is the right move for your family.

You're a great mum and you're right to feel saddened when you see your child not happy day...

Re: Best way to transfer money from house sale to UK bank account

Transferwise +1 for me. I use them fortnightly. Haven't ever sent hundreds (or even tens) of thousands. The highest I've sent was about $5000. I agree with Helen1964 maybe splitting might give you...

Ah that's a completely different kettle of fish then! I'm sure you'll be fine with your savings plus earning not long after you land.

What sort of savings do you have? Clothes, travel and entertainment can be expensive in London. There's so much going on and I'm sure you'll most likely be wanting to make the most of...

No advice about your visa, however just wanted to say (without sounding patronising as it's not intended) well done on turning your life around and being involved in such an important job in society....

Re: Playing ping-pong

My thoughts pretty much. I love 'things' about different cities / States but couldn't say I was a cheerleader for anywhere as a whole. I really enjoyed living in Perth for many reasons as I had put...

Re: Validity of passport whilst transiting

It is a lovely place. We had four nights there on the way over in 2017 (and have visited before) but after getting over jet-lag with a very young child we didn't see too much! Was lovely to just...

Re: Validity of passport whilst transiting

Completely agree! It's a lovely airport. Where we fly through will be dictated by points really, so not sure at this stage.

Re: Validity of passport whilst transiting

Thanks BIP. We don't have an itinerary as of yet, thus was checking "through any airport in the world?". Bit naive of me to think there would be a large brushstroke application to all countries :-)

Re: Playing ping-pong

It is just down to preference. I didn't feel isolated in Perth and others do. It purely depends on what you feel isolated from, thus I genuinely asked the question 'isolated from what'. I personally...

Re: Validity of passport whilst transiting

Thanks my friend. It would be an Asian country or Dubai airport only to transition through (not going near the States!).

When you say the only ones you know for 100% sure are Singapore and Dubai -...

Re: The Plan

Thanks pendledreams5 you're welcome. It felt quite cathartic to write it all down and at the very least it's probably an egotistical timeline for me to look back on and add to along the way.

Re: Playing ping-pong

Sorry I've just got to pick up on this, Perth is one of the most isolated Capital cities, not 'cities'. There is a difference :-)
I lived in Perth, I didn't feel isolated. Isolated from what anyway?
