I came here in Au­gust 2013. I moved for my hus­band. He’s a Kiwi but he’s lived here for 11 years now. I met him in Cairns when I came here on a hol­i­day. It was ex­cit­ing, but also hard to leave my job and my fam­ily and my friends back in Swiz­er­land. We would like our kids to grow up close to their grand­par­ents, so we’re head­ing back and I’ll be work­ing full time and be the sole earner, so we’ll have a com­plete switch of roles. I’m ex­cited, scared and anx­ious, I have ex­tremely mixed feel­ings, but my hus­band is al­ways the re­laxed one so he’s quite ex­cited. Our old­est child thinks we’re just go­ing on a hol­i­day be­cause she’s been there be­fore, but the lit­tle one doesn’t know what’s hap­pen­ing. We’ll be mov­ing in May.
