Probably the wrong place to put this but I'm hoping that someone might have some ideas that can help me or offer some support. Have namechanged, not a very regular poster but have some RL friends on here and havent told anyone about this yet.
Situation is - DP and I have been living abroad for nearly six years now.
From the minute we got here things have been really rough financially but we have been lucky and have managed to get by so far as we love living here. DP has been unemployed for 18 months now, had bits and pieces of work but we have been living off our savings and a little help from family. Dp is highly qualified but there is so little demand for his profession here and the wages are awful. I am a SAHM to our 9 mo DD.
So despite having had several offers for jobs, lots of interviews etc etc recently, nothing has worked out. We are finally done. We are absolutley out of money. We have enough food for a few weeks and thats it.
So we have to go back to the UK and I am terrified. Dp has accepted a job (everything just to be signed now). We will be leaving here with 2 suitcases and thats it. We are starting to sell off everything in the house to buy our tickets over and hopefully have enough to rent somewhere to go to. I don't know how we will manage to rent somewhere having never been in the town before or seen any houses. I don't know how we can turn up with literally a few clothes and probably bugger all cash and survive for a month with DD until DH gets paid. We have no family there and I have never lived in England before so I will be lost.
WWYD? How would you organise this? Most will be down to me as DP will be off to work as soon as we get there. My brain has just completley shut down and I don't know where to start.
Moving back to UK with nothing
