    cranky update nitemare 3 months

    As most of you know i was heading back to the UK but Late Novemeber **** hit the fan with Ex wife to be lol now she moved back to her parents and taken my boys didn't react the best way in the worse split ever. Spent Xmas on my own and even had the boys denied access to my Australian citizenship cerm and this week i been made out to be a nut case yes i did things wrong but i realized she wasn't worth fighting for anymore. But staying here in Aus to get my rights sorted and meet a nurse from Melb and both agreed to return to the UK in 2 years time together so hoping to give a different city a chance and learn one lesson not to rush in to marriage again.

    Homesickness destroying marriage

    Have to be honest going through this at present have admit not been the perfect husband in the world and the last two weeks i been so out of character it not funny but having in-laws 5 mins and them expecting me to run around after her like a fly in a bucket really pushed the arguments up for example i slept in till 7am and she got up with the kids at 6am no one bothered to wake me so that was wrong. Can't say i been calm as she decide on Friday she wasn't going away for a week but come sunday she was so arguments fired up then. Trying to save a marriage so rang till she would answer but she turned the phone off and of course she cam e home on monday saying we would talk about it but pretty much she wasnt interested in talk so it got me going and the inlaws are involved which made it worse. Feel like i backed into a corner because she wants to walk away and having two boys feeling i have them sing this all against me so i cant see them really at a point she doesn't want counselling and yeah i know i said we splitting up but woke up ad smelled the roses. no idea where to turn and not working made it worse

    How many people go home with nothing???

    Australia doesn't work out for every one yes returning home a huge cost and people may be forced to leave stuff here and maybe put shipping or a flight on a credit card at least they tried it and not sat in the UK wondering what if

    Are you a whingeing pom? Do you know any?

    I have to say i'm a whiniging pom never settled for second best and never afraid of hard work but to get made redundant twice in 4 years and end up on contract roles that go no where and then get told that life get on with doesn't cut it with me.

Bu t in the mean time the ex to be has decided she telling the in-laws 3 months early so this weekend going to be hell weekend as far as i can see. Secondly will i be able to use my Australian drivers licence in the UK or will i have to take a test again i never had a full licence in the UK and the DVLA website not helpfully only passed in Feb this year.
