      Glad to be home!

      Well we arrived back home 2 mths ago and it has been a bit of a whirlwind. We had no issues with our little one on an Aussie passport they just advised to get her a British one too.
      We are loving every minute of being back, we've had such a lovely christmas with family and just feeling like we belong again is amazing. We did enjoy our time in Australia but it just wasn't home and when we looked to the future it wasn't there. Being with friends we have known forever and having the kids give grandparents a cuddle there is just nothing better. Our aussie adventure has made us appreciate our home a lot more. Its been the best decision for us and we are really looking forward to 2017!

      Well done and great to hear you are enjoying being home. As you say sometimes it takes going away to appreciate what you already had.

      Good to hear everything is working out for you and falling back into place. At least you gave it a shot and wont spend time thinking 'what if?'

      If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...
      If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

      Yes thats it, you're only here once so make it the best you can. I would definately not put anyone off moving to Australia i would urge anyone to try it as it works for some people and they live there happily. This was our decision and the best one for us x

      Great news.

      Nothing beats being around friends and family and being home.

      One day you realise that these things are what truly makes you smile.

      Big houses, cars, boats, beaches, or whatever, those can never bring real happiness. Well ....not permanent happiness.

      We have a lot to grateful for in Britain.
