Default Back 5 years and 3 months today!

Well hello everyone, just lil ol me popping in to say hello, it’s been forever since I’ve been on here so nice to have a browse and see what you’re all up to!

Me? Well I’m good thanks, still happy in the UK, very settled now back in my little flat and still traveling a lot - Venice, NYC, Paris, Korea, Japan and San Diego so far this year.

I have a really good job now working for the MOD working as a medic on Royal Navy support ships, just finished a delivery voyage from Korea and now I’ve got a couple of months off so I’m off to the USA and Mexico for a few months.

I still spend heaps of time with my family, so nice having them just around the corner and after losing my Dad so suddenly I really do treasure the time I get to spend with them.

So I went back to Oz for a holiday about 18 months ago! I went to Perth where I grew up as I really didn’t want to go back to Queensland, would have liked to have seen my mates but I really just wanted to stay in Perth. I stayed with a childhood friend of mine and I had an amazing time, really loved it plus I caught up with some friends who had moved there from London, was weird but good lol! It settled some ghosts for me and I do think if I had gone back to Perth originally I would have been happier and I probably would have stayed. It was a good thing for me to do, made me realise I still do love Australia but I’m happy living in the UK now and I’ve made my peace with it all at last.

Well that is about it from em except one more thing................. I’m getting married 👰!!!!! I met someone and he is wonderful, if I hadn’t moved back here I would have never met him, it’s strange to look back and see how things have all worked out for the best after all that heartache I went through.

Well hope you are all doing ok, have been reading through some posts and it’s been great to find all where everyone is at now. Big hugs to you all! Betty xx

Wow, MissBetty herself, welcome back to the forum.

You are certainly travelling a lot, it makes me wonder how you stopped anywhere long enough to snare a partner. But at least you sound a lot happier than your Queensland days, now just memories you can put in a box and close. I know what you mean about wanting to see friends over that way, I really do miss my Adelaide buddies.

But that is what life is about, moving on and meeting new people.

Keep in touch.
