Default Hello!!!

I didn't see a forum for new comers, so I just wanted to introduce myself and say hi!!!

I'm a British expat...emigrated to Florida back in 1987 and have been here ever since. I love it, especially the weather!! I'm originally from Thornton Heath, Surrey. Last time I visited England was back in 1995. Can't say I honestly miss England....only the food/sweets.

Anyone else here live in Florida or are/were from Thornton Heath?

Miami is too superficial for me, and the people are rude; but the Gulf Coast seems better.

Really? So sorry to hear that. Do you not have any other family members in Maine or in the states? What made you move to the US?

When I first moved here, I found the people to be very rude too....I've grown accustomed to their attitudes now and do not let it get to me....so do you plan to move to the Gulf Coast?

Hubby is a Yank and it seemed like the best move at the time financially. I was rich for a short while after converting my pounds! lol
No I dont have any family over here, and not really made any friends except work collegues, and we can't get together cos we work overlapping shifts *sigh*

Not sure what I'll do in the long run
