Postcards from home

My Mum just sent me these photos of their garden in Yorkshire. I love seeing the daffodils, snowdrops and crocuses in bloom at this time of year, particularly cherry blossom which I adore as it brings back so many happy childhood memories.

Still not any closer in our decision making over whether to relocate to the UK. It seems like a catch 22 in many ways as our careers here are thriving and I'm not sure the same could be said if we based ourselves in London given the economic climate and our lifestyle (minus housing affordability) would be hard to beat. But family and friends cannot be replicated in Australia. Oh, it really is very emotional and tough at the moment not to mention very distracting but I'm sure we'll find a good solution. Easter is our deadline for making a decision...


  1. I adore all of the seasons in the UK. In fact I would love to live there for a year - it's on the cards!!
    Is your Mum trying to tempt you back with these adorable images?
    Good luck with your decision its a hard one. Next time you are up in Brissy let's catch up for a coffee.

  2. A very tough decision to make honey...I dont envy you.
    I suppose you have to think about the reasons why you decided to move to Oz in the first place..and has it been beneficial for you..or have those reasons changed?
    You will make the right decision ..and the right decision is the one that sits well within your heart sweety. Good luck...although being biased I would love for you to decide to stay...we still haven't done any bollywood dancing yet ; ) x

  3. Thinking of you, Anna. It really is very hard weighing up the reasons to stay and go. As Anna W has said, all you can do is go with your heart. These 'crossroads' decisions-to-be-made definitely seem to pop up more frequently as the years go by...

  4. Stunning pictures! Have a gorgeous day, Kellie xx

  5. Good luck on your very hard decision. Sounds like you can't lose either way :) XOL
