I'm in my late 30's. Nearly permanent in the public sector (not very highly paid and heavy workload).
I am single, no children, have my own car, houseshare with an owner occupier and am all the while applying for promotions so not exactly sitting on my laurels as far as career is concerned.
The thing is I am just not happy here in Ireland. I lived abroad when I was a teenager and after a recent trip back for a few days just can't get it out of my head that I want to go back and try to make a life there permanently.
It's not a costa del sol situation, more Northern Spain and although I know the realities of the job prospects out there are not very good I am seriously considering completing a CELTA (Teaching English) Qualification in June in lieu of taking another 2 week sun holiday later in the year with a view to try and get a foot in the door to Spain come the Autumn.
I have my doubts too at my age I am thinking am I crazy to give what I have up but if it is not making me happy then is there any point in not trying.
Sorry for the long post but I would appreciate any thoughts or advice
