No doubt this is a real dilemma, and the main issue needs to be what suits you and your husband best. The adult kids should look after themselves - you shouldnt keel you have to stay in Jhb just because a son in KZN would not like to move back to Jhbg and assumes he can do so and live with you. He could have different plans.
YOu say you could transfer within your company, to CT, at the same salary - even if it isn't the same level of seniority couldn't you then be available for later openings at more senior levels when you're in CT ? If the company is being kind enough to maintain your salary while using you at a lower level, they'd surely be highly motivated to move you to a more senior position as soon as one opened up, so as to better get their money's worth ?
CT is a lovely place to live and work, and subsiding into early old age is surely not a requirement ! That would be up to you.
WHy are you assuming you somehow wouldn't see your kids again ? Wouldn't they find ways to come, and find CT much more fun that Jhb ?
And why are you in danger of assuming that you can only reach new peaks if you stay in the same place in Jhbg and couldn't do so in CT ?
