The people can get you down in a new country, they're all mentalists where I am but you get used to it eventually

I'm not down and BE is like a lifeline at times..maybe some people should think about being more compassionate that's all.

It's not on is it. It's a lot of effort to come over here and then having to deal with the natives on top of that is too much - have you tried calling the embassy?

I'm pretty head strong and want to make it work for my hubby and son, sometimes it's nice to hear some words of encouragement when you're not sure on which direction to take...is that too much to ask on here??? thought that's what this forum was about, to help and advice others on the transition!! but every time you post something that doesn't comply...need I say more?

The locals can a get a bit stroppy.

Yes but at this time of day the only interested people seem to be one from Australia and LA. Clearly just trawling BE to wind peeps up.

Wait till the Canadians get on this, it could run and run.

Fair point ... but I'll see her and raise you Avril Lavigne and Justin Bieber (might as well be female).
