Dh and I have lived here for about 5 years. He works away a lot and always has. I have been a trailing spouse and have lived around the world since my early 20's. Now though I want to 'come home'
Our children are in a great private school here (8+10) but I have never settled here and could leave tomorrow with no regrets for myself.
The one and only thing that is concerning me is the childrens education.
We wouldn't be able to put them in a private school as company won't pay if we return to 'home' country. Fair enough.
I know there are really good schools in the UK and the children are hopefully young enough to re-adjust. I also know there are some rubbish schools in the UK. I have no ties anywhere so have no idea about good and bad.
Dh and I agreed we would stay here until the children finished their education but that is a long way off.
I just want to 'come home' now though.
AIBU to consider taking my chances with the childrens future by moving, or do I just suck it up and stay here.

My brothers went to a great private school in the Middle East. I went to a good comp in Scotland. I'd done better by the time I was at the age they are now - just more life experience and work ethic (they couldn't get Saturday jobs and were driven everywhere for example, rather than being independent).

I re-read my post and it sounds as though I think the school they are is great because it's private- Not what I meant at all, just that it was a great school. PrimalLass I went to the local comp too, albeit a crappy one, and I turned out ok ( I think hmm )
