The pull of Little Lion being where you want to be must be hard.....fingers crossed for you x
Do you and Mr VS have NZ citizenship? If so, get yer bums over here and give Aus a go. 56 is still loads of years left for a working life. Why not take a look at Seek to see what's available for him somewhere in Australia that will give you the sense of peace you're missing? Inner peace is IMO so important.

We are NZ citizens so Aussie is definitely doable. His company is based in Melbourne and has consultants throughout Australasia, he's their main bod in NZ. So it's potentially very doable, however it also makes it difficult in the sense of looking for a job in Aussie when his bosses have lots of contacts with other companies. The procurement field isn't huge in Australia and NZ. He's going to speak to his bosses in January he tells me, so fingers crossed.
I do wish we had chosen Australia in the first place but you live and learn.
The other pissed here is that OH could've got Australian citizenship back in the 60's if only his parents had had their wits about them. The family lived in Sydney for 5 years from when my OH was 18 months old. Frustrating is that!

There's a few of us who've done a chick weekend in SYD. We are well overdue for another. The more the merrier as they say.

That would be good for me too, as going to Sunshine Coast/Gold Coast with OH in January.
