    Suddenly feeling homesick

    We felt like that shortly after migrating. Trust your heart. UK is much better.

    Dilemma whether to stay or go

    Bang on. Worked with too many expats who can’t settle back at home.

    Moved back to the UK and now depressed

    Hang in there and be patient. It’s too easy to want to go back to what’s familiar, but the same things would just drive you out all over again.

    Coming home! any advice?

    Yes...be brutal. We took personal stuff only. A house load of ugly garish wooden furniture....we just held a garage sale...the whole blooming lot, sold in 2 days. Just get rid. Nobody wants that horrid heavy wooden stuff they all go crazy for out there.

    Dilemma whether to stay or go

    Yes it’s great back here in U.K. if you have a chance to get out of that suburb existence then go for it. There are tons of jobs all over U.K. Economy is buzzing. Finding work if you are skilled and qualified should be easy enough.

    2 1/2 months back

    Good you managed to get out of that place. Ping ponging not knowing what you want will use up all your savings and guaranteed you’ll end up being stuck there and wishing you were back home. Come home and give it time. It’s lovely back here. You have far more freedom here at home.
  11. You have been through the mill big time buddy. Good luck in the move home.

    Coming home! any advice?

    10 years home (and very happy). My advice is dont ping pong. Make a plan, stick to it and make it work. It’s not perfect here in U.K. but for us its a much better lifestyle than being stuck away out there.

    Grass greener?

    We hated it down there...the heat, the isolated location, culture etc the whole thing was awful for us. Been home 10 years now and loving it. U.K. is far from perfect but for us there is no better place to be. The only advice I have is ...Get a plan and go for it.

    Moved Back to the UK...6 Months on

    This is great advice, really. Old problems always resurface.

    Ping ponging can be expensive but good luck anyway whatever you do.
