I have been reading the forum and thought it would be a good idea to write on here to see if there are other people out there feeling how im feeling.
I moved out to Aus 7 years ago with my mum, dad and brother i was 16 at the time. So i left a lot of very close friends back in the UK as well as my mums side of the family. I went back to the UK a couple of times when i was 17/18 years old, and was always very excited to get back to Aus as i considered Aus home. I have since then got married and my husband and I went back to UK (for the first time in 5 yrs) in November 2011. As soon as I got there i had this instant feeling of that is where i want to be, seeing my friends, close family again was fantastic. my husband absolutely loved the UK and is very keen to go back. We decided to see how we felt when we got back to Aus to see if we really did want to move there or whether it was just a holiday crush.
Since being back i have felt more unsettled than i ever have and cannot stop thinking about the UK and everyone there. My parents have basically gone balistic as this, telling me its ridiculous that i should want to go back and how i have an unrealistic view of how the UK will be like to live in. My husband and I have researched things like average electricity/gas, water costs, mortgages, food bills etc etc and we know how much we could expect to earn there (thanks to a friend in recruitment), and we realise that it is very possible. I miss it so much it hurts to think about, my husband has said he will take me back but i do not want to make a mistake...........
