I was a nurse in the UK and unlike here , I would not dream of letting someone wait for a bed-pan over an hour! All this , "that's not my patient crap". I know my standard of living will be nothing like I have here , but how many bathrooms do we really need?
Anyway, could someone help me with something, I have just started this process of moving back. Both my British and US passports have expired , do I need both and do my kids need both ? I am planning in moving in about a year , providing I sell my house. I have no family back in the UK, but I am returning for the friendliness of the people. Any tips and info will be greatly appreciated.
Join the 50's and 60's thread on here for LOTS of info for us older ex-pats going home - you will feel right at home and learn so much.

See ya over there..............

I'm an outdoors type and the frustration comes in when you try and do something here in the miniscule amount of free time you get. Either it's too difficult to get where you want to (every Joe Bloggs and Spit the dog has the same idea) or the weather is cack. NZ seemed to me to have the best lifestyle but I appreciate it has been 10 years since I left and my career choice will stand me no chance in the job market over there.
So yes I have seen both sides of the coin,and am probably one jump ahead of all you people so willing to slag me off at a moments notice.
Best of luck on those who decide to come back here,you're going to need it.
Your not much of an outdoors type if the weather stops you !!
