When we were living Poland I have to admit that I was relived. Don't get me wrong, I love my country, my house, family, frainds and my work. On the other hand being working and so busy mum of two young children wasn't the easiest thing.
Last few months in Poland was really exhausting for me. I was allone, my husband was already in Australia. I had my family and friends to help, but still most of things I had to do by my own. Sometimes I was filling really stressed and I had a panic attacks during the night when I was thinking about next day, 'How will I manage with everything ?'.
So, yes I was very skinny, tired and frustreted.
When we were boarding on the plane in one hand I was afraid of the future but on the other hand I was relieved. I knew that I won't work in Australia from very beginning, that i will have time for kids and live will slow down for me.
I wasn't stupid and I realised also that dealing with other cultur and language won't be easy, too, but I like challanges, so I'd rather was looking forward...
