In February this year my hubby left our little nest to fly abroad to Western Australia to start working in the mines as he had no work for 3 months and I was recovering from a pretty bad car accident not being able to go back to work.
2 children 4.5yrs and 2.5 years of age, no family support where we lived, they all live interstate.
Its been a darn struggle and personally with health problems I have had to endure this year as well as kids being sick on and off most of the year I am more than ready for 2014 to hit me already.
FIFO lifestyle is for some families, it’s not for others, I miss my husband so much and the kids miss their daddy so much, with my son actually suffering a melt down this morning at kindy drop off, crying and when I asked why he said he just missed his daddy sooo much, nearly made me cry.
I have made great friendships Australia wide through forums on facebook, I haven’t physically met anyone yet but they have been my back bone when no one understands.
I would LOVE to hear from any other families and hear how you all cope.
