Were you after some more opinions?
Well we moved to a small country town 3 hours away from family and friends not knowing anyone here at the time. We have made some fantastic friends and we are now waiting to find out if there is another move on the cards for us.
This time it will be on the other side of the country 5days away from family and friends. We would have the bonus of already knowing one lot of friends in town as they are about to move there now.
Rentals are extremely expensive, and it is in a remote area.
I look at it as an adventure for us. I wouldn't even consider not going with my DH, I couldn't have him away for any period of time, the boys hate it when their daddy has to go away for a day or so a week now. But we have decided its time to start living for ourselves. The money is more than worthwhile and you will always make new friends.
It's a hard choice to make. I know it took me a long time to even consider this move. But now if we don't get it I will be extremely dissapointed.
I hope you find your answer soon!
