Hindsight is a beautiful thing

If only we could go back in time and make different decisions...
We'd never have to live with regret or face the consequences of our decisions made.
Just shy of our 6month west side anniversary we have been formally notified of the company's intention to transfer Papa's dept. to Perth.
Perth is not what we signed up for.
We would never have moved our family across the country for such a short stint. This adventure was supposed to have positive longterm effects on our future---we haven't made a dent in the mortgage in the time we've had here. Especially when you factor in wedding+flights.
The real bummer for Papa is that he turned down a job he would have loved because we had already accepted this offer and we were both keen for the adventure.
We've all reaped the benefits of a better work/home balance but cant help feeling a bit annoyed at the whole situation.
We've got maybe 6-9months till the shift so we are floating around a few different plans before we sign up for perth.
Perhaps we are meant to be gypsies ;)


  1. Oh no! That stinks :(

    A lot can happen in 6 months though. Maybe they won't move the dept? Maybe he can find another job where you are?

    Or at the very least, Perth is a beautiful city :)

  2. What a bummer! Being gypsies sounds like fun though!

  3. Oh bugger, we've had a spanner thrown in our works too, they are selling here, so if it sells there is no job security. Hope something works out well for you
