  1. I suppose you could make a long term plan to retire back in the UK one day. Seems your husband would be quite keen to do so. That is a bonus as it would be difficult if he didn't want to go at all. Your daughter could go with you or if she preferred to stay in Australia she could visit you. Must be difficult with elderly parents here though. Also sorry you feel isolated even though you have a group of pom friends. I've got good Aussie friends as well as friends who migrated from other countries including the UK so I've been lucky. Have you told your GP about the panic attacks?
  2. Are you staying in Australia because of your elderly parents or is it that your husband doesn't want to move back to the UK? I do remember some of your previous posts stating how unhappy you are. I think @Quoll suggested you try counselling. Must be awful feeling the way you do. Hope there is light at the end of the tunnel for you.

    White Privilege?

    Middle East is the same. They treat their domestic staff mainly from the Phillipines and Sri Lanka like muck.

    White Privilege?

    Sadly looks like that. Luckily many people are colour blind when it comes to skin colour. I know of some very happy mixed marriages ............... black/white and Asian/white.

    Should this be illegal ?

    Aboriginal peoples lived in Australia for thousands of years before the British arrived. They suffered greatly as a result of the arrival of the British. When Captain Cook visited in the late 1700s it is estimated that there were about 750,000 Aborigines. By the 1920s this number had fallen by around 90%.

    How is Megan doing so far?

    No he's not. That is just a rumour that started and kept growing. She hadn't met Hewitt until after Harry was born.

    White Privilege?

    Yes I am very aware of how that happens all too often BUT before you get on your high horse we are also talking about how other races are just a racist toward other races. OK?

    Do you Remember how Idi Amin got rid of south Asian (Indian) people in Uganda? They had 90 days to leave the country.

    White Privilege?

    .................. and when I was in Thailand I was appalled at the way the Thais treated the Burmese and the way they talked about black people.
