A few days ago while driving along the beautiful Sunshine Coast I mentioned to my partner that I was feeling a bit homesick. “That's odd,” he said. “How can you feel homesick when you don't really have a place that you call home?”

It was a terrible two days, back in 1980 in Port Elizabeth. My dentist expected me to go back the following week to have the wisdom teeth on the left removed, but after he yanked out those on the right hand side and I spent the next two days in agony, I never went back. I've avoided the dentist chair as far as possible ever since.

Our African safari is now a wonderful memory. As much as Australia is now our home, Africa will always be the red clay around our roots and the sights, sounds and smells of the bushveld is a tonic that needs regular topping up.

We tackled the trade winds across the Indian Ocean to spend our holidays in deepest darkest Africa.

“Life is one great adventure and you have it in the power of your mind to make it the greatest adventure of all time. You only have one life, so it is up to you to make it the best you can. My life has been stupendous and it just seems to keep getting better and better, it is only now that I realize why. It's because I have always had mindset energy – the will and the determination to get up and go.

Missing ‘Home' More Than Ever

I have been living in Australia with my husband and three children for just over a year now. I thought that I was over the most difficult settling-in-time, but recently I've found myself missing my family, friends and familiar things in South Africa more than ever. Why do I feel this way now? Sue

“Sorry I'm late,” said my patient. “I was caught in a pile-up in Woolworths and now I've got trolley rage!” Could it be the heat gone to her head? Perhaps not. Being bumped and blocked while trying to shop with a deadline is known to do dangerous things to otherwise normal women.

Scottish country villages are renowned for their desperation to cling onto the historical past. This has a lot to do with the constant denigration of anything Scottish by their dominating neighbours. Perhaps it also has something to do with the fierce subservience to the Presbyterian Church, which has striven for centuries to keep the lower classes firmly in their allotted place.

Human rocket fuel. Foul tasting white liquid chalk that underplays its power to make this 50+ year old break land speed records from the sofa to the nearest toilet

Every sense is alive with the knowledge that at any moment I will have to respond with a “stink spoed”. It will be a matter of survival over dignity, speed over manners...

As I type this, I am concerned that I am going to remove the porcelain off the toilet bowl and make the neighbourhood dogs start howling.

Why am I in this predicament?

So you've moved to Australia, you've set up a new life together and you've fallen in love all over again…or maybe not. Relocating can be incredibly hard on everyone, but women do seem to struggle more than men and most men just don't get why.
