This is very true, and a huge part of our motivation to move the family. In the first instance anyway... Now I find more and more of my own reasons every day.

Thank you all so much, such kind words. You've made me all teary.

I think part of my problem has been my reluctance to talk about my feelings with anyone. I feel like we made our choice and I need to suck it up. It's a relief to talk about it.
