Ok I'm shelving the idea for 12 months, I could analyse all day!
I just wanted to put forth my view on finances. I agree it is important to consider but as an example, during the course of my third pregnancy/her first year of life, my husband went from having a 95k a year job, to a 45k a year job, to being unemployed, to working for 400-500 a week cash.(There were job transfers and redundancies involved). It is unbelievable how fast things can change either for better or worse.
We are now very comfortable with money again, and even when we went down to barely any income, we still made sure the kids were fed, clothed and happy and hubby and I went without (selling off our stuff and skipping meals so the kids didn't have to) but we were happy.
So in my experience, and I know it's most certainly not the same for everyone, but for us the finances sucked but we just made it work while in the thick of it. When we planned for the number 3, we had no idea any of this was going to happen, we thought we had planned everything to a t and it turns out the universe had other plans.
R, A & H, you're a better wife than me. My DH knows I will never live in a cold climate!

I couldn't wait to get out of FNQ. The heat saps my energy and motivation. I'm sluggish, my hair is frizzy, my psoriasis goes crazy - especially if I'm
In the sun for more than 10 minutes!
The cold energises me, my hair is sleek and straight, my skin is dry but the psoriasis is easily managed. I love layering up, the jackets, boots and scarves
DH is shivering already down here and wants to move north. I'm being cagey - I'll go a little further north but only serious family emergencies would pull me all the way to the Far North again!
