Forget the QM2, well.... for me I have to as it doesn't swim by Long Beach docks. I will be going home in style by using a Tardis. This little police box is quite the luxury and no restrictions on luggage....hell you don't even need a visa or entry clearance.

Things like taking Friday + Monday off to go away is just not possible with 10 floating days! Thats 20% of your whole years allowance for a long weekend! Add in a couple of afternoons to pick people up from the airport etc.
Sounds like that two of us heading back to Derbyshire then!

So now after a few years We have decided to move back, why, because what I have given up is not worth what I have gained. That is my statement of the day. I have honestly weighed up all I get from being here and it dosn't make up for what I miss. people have told me that the UK is only a few hours on an plane but when you only get 10 days vacation this does not always work. My retired parents have seen more of Canada than me because my holidays are either with people visiting us or us visiting them.
Also dont kid yourself that e mail is a great way to send photographs etc. yes it is but it will never ever compare to you childrens interaction with their Grandparents, cousins etc when they are in each others company.
Canada is a great place to live and I have no problem with it at all however it is certainly not the garden of eden it is made out to be. I have been laid off once and my current company could only be described as shakey due to the US economy.
The simple fact is I honestly think I will be denying my children of soooooo much family stuff just by staying here, so thats it, we decided in Sept 2005 after months of discussion and will hope to be back this summer.
Any advice would be great!


Did you get your Canadian citizenship? If not, you need to be aware that after a few years back in the UK your permanent resident status will be gone for good and there will be no easy way back.

Same goes for your children should they want to study, live or work in Canada (and it also means they won't be able to use the NAFTA provisions to work in the US). Unless of course they were born in Canada.
