Dave & Ailsa, glad at long last you have made it! It's a long haul and am so glad things are working out for you. Yes, it's a far cry from the fair city of Glasgow to be sure, and all that goes with it, but I have weaned myself off neds, piss heads and litter strewn streets. The curry houses I do miss, a lot, but we can't have everything I guess. Enjoy!

Small world that you know that guy, I lived in Girvan for a wee while and worked in Irvine, went to Glasgow a few times although mostly the Eaglesham area

I just wanted to say what an excellent post (or posts!) that was. We're in Glasgow and moving soon, so reading such positivity means a lot. Will send you a PM shortly :-)

Thanks Sue... We need to meet up for a chat at some point - preferably when I'm not dying of a cold!!

Our boys are very different too each other, one was excited, but very sad to leave and panicking about missing his friends... he's the one who's now very happy here! The other is more of a loner and initially didn't want to move but came around in time and is now I think annoyed at himself that he likes it here!

Dave, off-topic, but do you know a Willie Logie from Kilmarnock?
