Hi guys, Just a whinge! We are flying out to Perth on Monday and while I am excited to get moving I am just dreading the flight ....will be 28.5 hours from the time we leave Ireland to landing in Perth. Will be 34 weeks pregnant and travelling with my husband and our 2 year old. Just looked at our booking and the plane is in a 3 groups of 3 seats layout, so no chance of a fourth see to allow 2 year old to lie down (has anyone ever had a 2 year old sleep sitting up on a plane??). Plane is pretty booked out too so I think that we have no chance of snaffling another seat. In fact I was told when I rang customer service that nearly all seats are allocated and we can't even sit together!! Hope that this can be sorted out at check in because my lo will want to be with me and managing her by myself while the size of a house will not be fun! Whinge whinge whinge. ...I know this is boring but just dreading it! I suppose the only good thing is is can't possibly be as bad as I am expecting! Thanks for reading! : ) Kate.
Hi all, I've read through many of the posts and blogs on the site and always found them really insightful and just wondered if anyone could offer me some advice. I'm moving to the Gold Coast in late November with my partner and our two year old daughter. My partner is an Australian who has lived in the UK for nearly half her life and desperately wants to return after six years in London. The problem is me. I really don't want to go, and am making the move under suffrance. Don't get me wrong, I do like Australia and have met a lot of good people whilst in London or over in Oz for holidays. I've really enjoyed Oz for holidays and would recommend it without hesitation. I just don't want to live there. I love England. Not in some ignorant John Bull 'we're the best' type way, but because it's my home, and I don't have another one. I've never wanted to live anywhere else and never ever thought I would have to. I really don't get the appeal of Oz to live in. I don't like hot weather, going the beach or the great outdoors. I'm a classic stay at home Englishman (holidays notwithstanding) who likes temperate weather, english pubs (warm beer included), a good curry, SKY sports and the BBC. I find Aussie culture alienating. I just don't get it. For me, it's all too flash and glossy - a bit like I'd always imagined America. I'm really worried about this making things even more difficult for me whilst I'm there. I'm desperate that this move doesn't break up our family and wondered if there are other people on the forum who have moved over feeling like I do and what they did to resolve that. I understand that my anxiety probably doesn't ring a bell with many of you as so many of you have clearly made the choice willingly. I am, at the moment, sick at the thought of going and leaving my family, friends and the life I know behind. Any advice would be gratefully received. Almeida
Hi Many of you will have read my previous post about my relationship with my mum and my thoughts on moving away. I have to update you all on the latest development in our family: 3 weeks ago my mum had a biopsy (she had breast cancer in 1994, beat it, bone cancer came in 2005, under control) and we have learned that the cancer has now spread to the lining of her left lung. She is to start a 4 week drug treatment and then will face the prospect of chemo, something she has managed to avoid all these years. Despite my difficult relationship with her, I feel a huge sense of sadness and guilt that, for the moment, I will continue with my plans to emigrate and just take each month as it comes. I am so ashamed of myself when I think to myself "what does this mean for us now?". I feel horribly selfish and torn in two at the moment.:sad:
