I would seriously consider teaching Jason, not just for extra income but to :

1) Get you out of the house.

2) Give you a reason to get up in the morning.

3) Help you meet (hopefully) nice educated people (I don't mean that in a snobbish way).

4) Give you objectives that are NOT family based.

5) Stop you drinking &/or getting bored.

6) Make friends from different locations/backgrounds.

7) Motivation and to earn respect (hopefully)

That's how it helped me

Apart from no 2 as I like to not wake up to early LOL this is very good advice

In your position, would recommend getting a teaching job in the local area for the 9 years before your pension kicks in...

This will help to take any pressure off abit and may get stressful if needing to keep such a tight budget for any extended time

Also you could then get visa extension in Thailand, which will cut down on visa / travel expenses

OP: Why do you believe that as a foreigner you can obtain Thai government hospital medical insurance, have you already confirmed with hospital admin? Even if you were able to do so it does not cover all medicines that can quickly add up in cost. Also don't imagine wife would want her/children in a public ward in a Thai government hospital. Unless you're really unconcerned about 'quality of care', you and family definitely will not want to be treated at a local government hospital for anything of a serious nature, whether it be accident or illness.

Suggest you rethink the insurance & incidental expenses budget for health related matters.

I agree with the comments about Govt hospital conditions. If you work for a Uni, they would more than likely give u health insurance. Mine does!

Great to hear that Jason, good on you.

Hope it goes well, as you know, the grass "is" greener in Thailand (rather than the UK, my birthplace). Depends on what you want out of life.

I have watched how the NHS treated my father and now he is dead and now I am watching how they treat my 84 year old mother, this is no good and the UK has no respect for the eldery which is something the Thai's do, I would rather die in LOS than in the UK and have a less stressful life and enjoy it, you only have 1 life so why not enjoy it before it's to late !

Give that you mention respect to the elderly, how does your mother feel about you and your family leaving UK for Thailand for 9 years, with nothing factored in apparently for trips back to visit her? You say you "would rather die in LOS", but I wonder if you have seen the conditions in a local Thai hospital of how people are treated and die there, compared to the NHS which you seem to dislike for some reason? Your budget does not seem to cover medical insurance and hospital treatment can get very expensive, if the unexpected happens. Dreams can turn to nightmares rather quickly for those poorly prepared, as one only has to scan the backposts of TV to decipher.

Also, bear in mind that costs for the 9 year old are likely to increase steadily year on year, and you need to factor this in to your budget, especially once he finds all his friends have mobiles, computer games, fancy trainers, etc, and at the age of 14 or so, motorcikes and girls....... wink.png

Blimey, your an optimist aren't you.

Lets be positive please, that is what life is about is it not?

Jason, don't listen to these people that tell you that "the sky is falling down".

If you don't do it you will eternally live in regret.

GO FOR IT

Jason " I can't ride a motorbike"

You can get a 3 wheeler one,not a samlor taxi, but a funky bile with 2 big wheels at the back,

You won't fall off,

You say you've got a house in the UK, where abouts ?

If in/near London you can rent it for a pretty penny,

Just a thought

My Son was born in a government hosipital but we got a priavte room cost was around 6000 Baht for 3 days, I asked Pattaya/Bangkok and they quoted 54,000 Baht, the service we got from the government hospital was very good and there was a nurse outside are room 24/7.

My mother has known for a long time that I would be going to live in Thailand, I do have other members of the family that can take care of her, it I was to get badly ill I would return to get free treatment from the NHS as I have been paying my NI for over 28 years so I might aswell get smething back from them.

I will be looking for PT teaching work when I arrive this will cover the cost for my son, also remember my wife will have around 4000 income coming in per month so this will help also.

Yeah sure great idea, if he was on his own go for it.

The difference is he is some sort of middle aged guy with a wife and a couple of kids in tow.

Whats the rush to come over here?

Thailand aint going anywhere, will still be here when his pension kicks in, if he actually gets it and the goalposts havent been moved, never mind the exchange rates and inflation.

Talk about abandonment of all responsibility.

Wait til he gets a bill for 15k for root canal treatment, 6k for a new water pump, etc etc etc

Bringing a little girl here to condemn her, why bother writing it, go for it.

25k per month to keep a family of 4.

Heres a tip, cancel your plans, come here for a holiday, keep your credit card in the UK and see how far you get on 25k per month.

Written from one who lives here and is well aware of costs.

edit, just read, my wife will have an income of 4k per month, <deleted>, I spend more than that on a night out.

If you are really so reliant on 4k per month, best of luck to you, you will need it.

What happens if your wife doesnt earn 4k per month?

What happens when the white envelopes appear?

What happens when the family hit her up for money?
