I've been stewing on this for a few weeks now and thought I'd share it to see if anyone else is in the same boat.
We have been in Oz now for 13 glorious weeks and love it. What is getting my back up is that everyone back "home" that we wanted to have our phone numbers (mobile and house) has it.
We have in all this time been phoned twice. 1 each from 2 friends. Not another call from anyone. It's always us that have to phone. I've said no more. I've not phoned anyone for 4 weeks now. The wife has made a couple, but knows how I feel and agrees to a certain extent.
These have been family and friends for years and they can't be bothered ringing, it's always us. As far as I'm concerned, stuff 'em. We are making a good new life and having a great time doing it. We are making friends over here and "home" will end up being a distant memory.
When we've metioned by email or phone about coming over, you never get a straight answer, it's always "oh well you know" or "maybe in a few years" etc.
OK rant over.
