    Pingpom Question!!!!!!!

    I have been reading a few threads about people who have come to Australia and after a short time decided to return to the Uk. Then after getting back there have thought what have they done!!!!!!!!! Then decide to come back to Oz. Stating that it will be different next time and they will make a go of it. Why do they think it will work next time and what do they plan to do to make if different, is it that they will come back with a different attitude and if so in what way would it be different????????? I have been wondering this, as I have only made a move interstate and from day one convinced myself that I dont like Brisbane and dont want to be here, so have organised for the move back to victoria. But now Brisbane doesnt seem such a bad place but Hubby reckons its cause I know I am leaving shortly and can see a light at the end of the tunnel. But how do I know that its, that I have got over the culture shock and are getting used to the new lifestyle. I also think now of what I could do more to maybe settle, where as before I may have been holding myself back as I felt so negative about the place. Is this what the pingpom poms feel and is this why they think it would be different next time? So nows the scary bit, Do I go with what I think I have been feeling with my heart since being here and hope it all works out? I suppose theres a lot of poms out there who have made the move back and not wanted to come back here though. So I suppose its a gamble and you have to do it to see which way you feel in the end!!!!!:unsure:
