Homeward Bound

scottish20flagOne of the biggest things Susan, Daniel and I are facing this year is a big move back to Scotland.  We are currently going through about a mile of red tape, mainly with Susan’s visa, I have already applied for my son’s British passport which we should have next week.  Once I have his passport I will start the application for my wife’s settlement visa.

We are aiming for June/July 2009.

The settlement visa I have heard is a long slow process so better to start sooner or later.  We need to wait for Daniel’s passport as we had to mail all our original documents for this; passports, birth certificates, marriage certificate and my change of name document (yep that’s right I was formerly Andrew Logue before I took my mum’s maiden name Scott).

The main reason for this move?  Well, my health for one!

Coming in at number one is my hip, of course.  Basically I am waiting and believing for a miracle! But I need to get my weight down as quickly as I can, because the excess weight on my hip is speeding up the process to a plastic hip.

Second on the cards is my lower back, again a weight related problem.  I take caution in everything I do, the slightest mistake I make in bending over will result in a week in bed, a week I cannot afford.

And thirdly, my pet peptic ulcer. I say pet because I have been trying to get rid of the little bugger for the last 8-9 years without success.

If I was to stay in Indonesia with the salary I’m on (even with a 100% increase) I would not be able to afford the medical attention that I need, while in the UK, I’ll be able to have this all done on the NHS for free!

So it’s a no brainer choice to be going home.

This will also have benefits for Daniel as he reaches schooling age, as he’d receive a better education in the UK.

This is a big thing for us all; Susan will have culture and a new language on her 24/7, and I’ve lived in Indonesia for almost 6 years now and will need to get back into Western culture.

Well that’s that folks, I’ll keep you up to date with the going on’s of our move.
