if you stay only because of the house you may regret it as there are other houses There must be schools locally are they bad in some way?On the other hand we have bought a bigger house than we need and it does give you a secure feeling knowing that you could potentially have a lodger etc

I'd stay put.

Toss a coin?

ks I think you summed it up in your post-- you're so scared of making the wrong decision that you don't know what to do.

From an armchair psychologists pov I can't see how you could make a decision that would be utterly disasterous. It seems to me that your life is going to be failry comfortable wherever you are- and that the all singing all dancing 100% fulfillment that you are searching for doesn't exist (for anyone).

If you want to stay where you are how about keeping your job but looking for something else that could fulfil you (running your own small business or something). Or the old cliche of studying something. Both of those work for me

Come and visit us for a week- you'll be craving your peace and quiet after that

Or chuck on Radiohead- the Bends- that album always make me content - listening to it now although should get back to mumps boy and grizzly baby. But I feel content

also if you have just started to enjoy it there it may just keep getting better.You would have to start the settling in process all over again

sorry was that blunt? I had a feeling I was in blunt mode today But honestly if either decision has equal pros and cons then I would toss and coin but decide beforehand to be 100% happpy with that decision. if the pros and cons aren't equal then go with the one with most pros and least cons. see simple

You can't waste life worrying about whether you should be doing something else - otherwise you end up forgetting to live it!

it doesn't say QTS though - you don't need to be QTS to teach at tertiary level (effectively what adult TEFL is).

I searched for ages to find that! Anyway the point was that there may be other jobs for you where you are. Or in london.

If it was me, i'd buy the dream house I think.

rofl cod- the whole class got A* (seriously). ks- it only looks hard because its different from the stuff we did (as cod says a whole lot easier).

I think sp made a good point- there's lots out there - I don't live in London and have found enough outside things to do to give intellectual fulfillment (which isn't hard as I appear to have given birth to my brain as well as a babby 5 weeks ago).

The maths really is easy you know. DH told me that you could get a C with 30% from one of the boards last year! It ust be worth a shot.

ks you are destined to be one of life's "yeah but"s! Toss that coin!! Heads you go tails you stay. Then you could write a book about it (in the vein of Round Ireland witha Fridge).
