bit of background am single parent to two 15 year olds - have been v hand to mouth for a few years now. I have set up an online business but it is up and down. other than that i was starting to rely on the child support money from ex.(something i never intended to do). well he has now stopped working and we can kiss goodbye to that money. i have done some calculations and have enough coming in to pay the rent, electricity and food and a drop of fuel but not more. the children are often going to school with no dinner money and need new clothes. There are very few employment opportunities around here i should add. it is a lovely looking area but the view is not cutting it any longer. now the thing is i do have a cert of teaching English and experience in that field and so could take a job in another country. or we could move back to London where i could develop the online business further as there are more places to physically advertise there. wwyd? i am in tears most days and the stress of it all is killing me.
I think I would put the moving abroad plan on hold for a few years as it would be hard to move 15 yo DCs.
I also think London sounds good & as well as the on line business, maybe you could do some English teaching whilst there as there is surely a large demand for it in London. Therefore you could be up to speed & with experience when it came to moving abroad.
well my daughter has become a bit of a mountain girl and my son has his friends but they were born in London and spent a fair few formative years there so do not feel like strangers there at least.,.....
