Hi Sharleene,

We are currently living in Dunfermline, Fife but are also relocating to Houston. We expect to be heading over - with our two kids in tow, end of August.

Adele.

I am not Scottish, but I lived and schooled in Dundee for 2 years. Best years of my life. I ate haggis, drank Scotch, wore a kilt on my graduation day too. I moved to Houston with my spouse last Dec.

Hi Sharleene/Adele

I am also moving to Houston in mid August with my husband and son (2). I am originally from Edinburgh but have been out of the UK for a while now.

Would be good to meet up when we are over there.

Hi Adele,

We haven't found anywhere to live yet. I have been looking online at apartments and townhouses and I have found some nice places but the ones I like do not have availability until November!

I am keen to stay in the inner loop, maybe around memorial/galleria area. Have you found anywhere yet? What ages are your children? I'm hoping that when we get out there, I can find something within a week or two...fingers crossed! We are flying out this Sunday - looking forward to getting out there now:-)

Hi again,

We are going to rent for a year as we have not yet sold our house in the UK. We were out last week and have secured a rental in Katy. We have been tempted out to Katy because of the good school reputation. Our kids are 6 and 16 - so 1st grade and 11th grade here they come.

We have just over 3 weeks to go so frantically selling off the contents of my attic.

Anita - hope you have a productive trip - safe journey over.

What areas is anyone else moving to or living in - anyone in Katy?

Adele.

Hi, I moved here with my family (wife and 2 daughters) in April. We live in Cypress which is not too far (in Texas miles) from Katy.

Good luck with the move and let me know if we can offer any advice from the vast knowledge and experience we've gained in outr 5 months here

Also, for anyone else looking in, Scots or otherwise, it would be nice to try and organise a get together, (I know it's been tried several times before).

Hi
My family and I (Wife + 3 boys) moved to Cypress in 2008 from Kirkcaldy, we enjoy the lifestyle over here, the kids school is amazing and all the sports facilities are out of this world compared to home.

We're very fortunate that my in-laws live here too so if me and the wife want to go for dinner on a Sat night we have babysitters/doggiesitters. We'd love to meet people of similar age(Early 30's) from Scotland to socialise with.

Baker Street pub (1 in Katy and 1 in Willowbrook) is a good way to meet ex-pats. you have Big Johns Bar (Rangers pub) and Bull n Bear (Celtic pub) for watching football and both have great atmosphere when Scotland football or rugby games are on.

We've just came back after a 3wk holiday in Scotland and it only rained twice in 3wks!!
