Sinfield Day family update

As soon as they returned from Australia they immediately started the visa process and had enrolled the children in a school to start in July 2019. 

David’s career took another brilliant turn and he was asked to work on the new James Bond film and they realised that living in different countries wouldn’t work for their family and relationship after all as his work schedule is so busy . Harriet also had to have another operation and this made her realise how much she enjoys having family and friends around her, something she wouldn’t have in Australia.

The children are so happy and settled in their school here and both of their businesses are thriving.  They have put their house on the market to buy somewhere with land where Everley can have a pony at home.

Although it was a difficult decision and particularly heartbreaking for Harriet she knows in her heart,  it was the right,  long term decision for their family.
