      Ping Pong is on a distinguished road

      Moved back to the U.K.

      I have been living in Brisbane for 5 years and moved back to the U.K at the end of last year . Work had become dificult to find and cost of living increases were getting higher so we weighed it up and thought with the exchange rate we would have a better standard of living here. Whilst that is the case and my husband found work quite easy I am very fed up and miss Brisbane but he does not is there anyone else out there with a similar situation.
      Thanks

      Hi PP , why don't you suggest another State in Oz , that might just trigger something off with him and give you some hope ?

      Hi Ping Pong, it's very hard isn't it when you both want different things. My hubby wants to return home for a support network I think but myself and the kids don't want to go.
      For one I would struggle with the cold lol.

      Hi, This looks like an old thread, but I was wondering how you're settling in now? I have also moved back to the UK from Brisbane and am doing it a bit tough with 're-settling.' Been here several months, but still no job which is a worry... How long did it take you to feel settled again? Hope everything has worked out for you :)
