Hi there...welcome to BE.

It sounds like you're going to become a Ping Pong Pom. I see you have already found your way into our Australia and MBTTUK forums and are making yourself at home. You'll get loads of support from our members...there are quite a few who have ping ponged.

Here is a list of BE's moderators and concierges and their respective forums. If you require help finding your feet around the many forums one of the concierges will help you. Problems and concerns should be reported to a moderator.

I hope you enjoy being part of our community of expats. Good luck.

Hi Perthbum

Good to see you are finding your feet on the forums and I hope you are enjoying being part of our little cyber world.
You sound a bit unsure about whether you want to be in the UK or OZ so I hope our forums help you decide. Did you return to Brum o somewhere else in the UK?
That just leaves me to say welcome to BE and all the best to you

Hi Perthbum

I have to ask -is that banker in the literal sense or a rhyme for another word?
Hope things work out for you whichever side of the world you decide to be in

A real banker, she left me for a big house and big money , I suppose it is better to find out her true colors after a short marriage than after a few years.

Hello Perthbum,

And welcome to BE. If it be any consolation, you're not alone. I'm widowed from my first marriage, but we could not have been more happy ... and then I made the mistake of thinking that marriage could only be as wonderful as my first. I only wish my 2nd had ended in death —hers or mine— just so long as it was over. Divorced now, and don't care to look back on that one ... just the first.

I don't half envy you in making a strike at going home again ... I've wanted to for so many years, (but I may have waited too long now). Still, one can hope, eh what?

Good luck in your future, mate, wherever it should lead you!

Best,
Christian

Hi Perthbum

No doubt very upsetting at the time, but you are absolutely right, and I hope you find happiness.
