Shall we move to Spain?

Well here is the story.

I have several properties in Spain which we rent out via a website quite well.

This time last year we decided to sell our UK house and invest in more property, with the intention of moving over there. The rental side is doing really well and we have been asked to take on more properties as we only deal in apartments with pools, gyms kind of exclusive properties. My wife is going to do the rental and I will commute from Spain to Leeds for my 3 days work as an IT consultant the rest of the week I work from home.

Now The Problem! - I have 3 children ages 17, 11 and 6. The eldest is going to college next September but doesn't want to leave her friends even for a years paid holiday, the middle one is the same and the youngest one isn't bothered.

The 2 youngest - we are also worried about their schooling as they are both bright kids and the Spanish Education system is behind the UK's and there is the obvious language barrier, although all of us have been having Spanish lessons.

We have weighed up all the good, the bad the ugly about both places Spain V's UK and we still cant decide.

Now its nearly time to go I am having cold feet so guys make the decision for me - shall we stay or shall we go (I can feel a song coming on!!)
