Don't you love Sydney mum told me the other day that she thinks I should come back to Sydney jsut becuase I miss the shopping..."it's really surprising that you don't miss anyone at all, but you miss the shopping". I thought about that for a moment...maybe it's true...maybe I am romantisizing I stumbled upon this email I received about 2 years ago, I realised that maybe we alwyas complain about the place we live, and only really appreciate it when we leave it...

1. You can make over $100,000 per year and still can't afford a house.
2. You never bother looking at the train timetable because you know the drivers have never seen it either.
3. You order organic fruit and vegetables online, but eat out every night anyway.
4. You spend more money on your coffee machine than on your washing machine.
5. You spend $400+ per week for your room in an apartment with stunning harbour and beach views and European appliances; and spend a total of forty hours a week there, of which thirty seven are spent sleeping.
6. You contemplate calling a taxi from your home to where you managed to park your car the night before
7. You spend thirty minutes in a traffic jam next to a car that has more power going to its speakers than its wheels.
8. You know everyone's e-mail and mobile number but not their last name or
home address.
9. You can roll sushi, make pasta and keep your red curry paste recipe under lock and key... but couldn't roast a chicken to save your life.
10.Your taxi driver was a micro-surgeon before he emigrated to Australia.
11.Your co-worker tells you he/she has eight body piercings but none is visible.
12.You can't remember... is dope illegal?
13.You've been to more than one baby shower that has two mothers and a sperm donor.

All true - hahaha Sydney is very similar to London, except that the weather is crap in the UK! You also earn well but where it goes I just don't know. Additionally, you cannot afford property on a 30 40 or 50k salary in the UK (pounds sterling) unless you inherited it or bought property around 1999!
