    Still lost, advice?

    Thank you so much. Yea, i'm 17. I honestly don't feel that young, though. We have our Australian citizenship and passports, so we can come and go between the two as we please. Thanks for your advise. Jobs are pretty scarce in Tassie at the minute, and my family and i decided that if we had to move it would be back to the Uk rather than the mainland.

    ​Double glazing is so expensive over here. We had our house priced up and it turned us off having it.

    You're best to go to the small hardware shops, they usually sell the little heaters. Or shops like KMART and BigW would be a safe bet. Otherwise just wrap yourself in a blanket, that's what we do over here

    Still lost, advice?

    I'll give you some background: My family and i moved to Australia, originally Perth WA, in February 2008. After 8 months of not getting work, being unhappy, paying huge rent there, we decided to move to the North West Coast of Tasmania. We have been here for about 4 years now. It's a beautiful state, but there are hardly any jobs and everything is expensive my family don't enjoy their jobs and i cannot find an apprenticeship - being a girl in Automotive makes everything a little more difficult as everyone over here is sexist as hell. We're doing well with money, we have two cars, a boat, a gorgeous house with panoramic ocean and mountain views, yet we find ourselves wanting to move back to the UK. My mum's family is back in the UK and we miss them a fair bit; perhaps that's what is instigating our move. But yea, i don't feel as though i have anything here; no mates, no job, no future here. I keep trying to remind myself of the state of the UK; the traffic, etc. but i still want to go back for good. i've never felt like we fit in here, based on the fact that we're english. We're going to need a 40ft container and we are taking our 4 year old Ragdoll cat, Zach, with us. Has anyone been feeling/have felt similar and moved back? We're just a bit lost and stressing out about the process. Nothing is set into concrete, but it is more likely than not that we'll move back. Any comments or opinions would be appreciated. Thanks.
