Makes me laugh how around June/ July here I start feeling all Xmassy because of the dark evenings/winter. Would suddenly get confused as to what month it was. Quite bizarre.

We sure do! I actually used to dread xmas a little, dont get me wrong, I love the feeling of xmas and the way it is celebrated in the UK, but I'm crap at buying presents for people (typical bloke! lol). I'm so looking forward to a xmas in the UK now though, 40 degree's just isn't right at xmas, give me freezing cold and possible snow anyday!!

Well good luck, it tool me a year to come to a final decision and our flights r booked for June, back to good old blighty. The summer, (heaven) then autumn with the crisp freshness of the air in the mornings, kicking the leaves as i take the dogs for a walk across the fields and please, please the snow for xmas would be lovely (I never thought i would ever say that as I am a sun worshipper). Going to the shopping centre, the hustle and bustle, cueing for a parking space, all the town and shops decorated, the sparkling lights on xmas trees, the children singing carols, the xmas parties at work and the childrens schools. The mince pies, xmas pud and brandy suace, not much I miss lol. Can't wait to celebrate a new year at home where we belong. Ahhhh!

Well please keep us posted as it would be nice to hear how u settle into the uk. There is due to be a housing price crash so that should help many of us, who have spent most of our equity on emigrating. Good Luck.
