It’s hard living in a different county to your friends and family. Don’t get me wrong this is a choice my husband and I made for ourselves. That doesn’t mean it’s an easy choice. Choosing to move counties itself was quite easy; as soon as my South African husband said he was interested in moving to the UK I was on the phone telling my UK friends almost immediately. But leaving loved ones behind, is not easy, especially knowing that you have no desire to live in the same country as them. But I’m getting ahead of myself. Maybe I should give you some background.
