Welcome,

Usually it's the kids who leaves the parents behind  :D  ]

 - end of quote by voreilly - this next bit is by Addywads!!!

It was such a tough decision to leave the kids but if they were leaving we would have encouraged them to go.  we are hoping to establish a home here that they came come to when the "you know what" hits the fan in SA.  DH is 50 so we had 5 years left to make the move.  I cry often for my kids but had to see the bigger picture - we have such freedom here that money cant buy  ;)

Good on you addywads, being proactive in this way will pay of someday sooner rather than later I think.
I am glad you're enjoying your new found freedom  8)
