The neighbour across the street from him has a concreted front garden also, so I am getting three houses' worth of rainwater run-off!

On very rainy days the effect of all this sloped hardscaping is that the rain simply runs through the subsoil of my garden and down the side of my house in a river running down my front steps. The council has introduced regulations against concreting front gardens for parking - it has to be gravel now. There were several houses on the street that rushed to hardscape their front garden for parking before the regulation came in.
That is something I didn't think of - nowhere for the water to run-off - not good! It's just as well some regulation has been introduced now.

Wher I lived we were surrounded by fields, no houses for 400 yards, so the wildlife was great, we had hedgehogs, pheasants, even sparrowhawks visited, but I suspect they were visiting because of all the birds coming to the birdtable and bird feeders. I had a nestbox just about 5' from my kitchen window and it was claimed by blue tits, great to watch them feeding the young, and amazing just how many insects they brought.

Twenty three years is a long time to be away. You are going to find vast changes - some good, others not so good. Be forewarned about "reverse culture shock". I don't mean to sound negative - I love the UK and would move back tomorrow if I didn't have children and grand-children here. However, I go back every few years to visit family and friends and I have seen many changes in the past 23 years (I left there 23 years ago).

The front garden of our house had been graveled poorly for car standing by previous occupiers. It had been hard cored under and improperly graded we had problems of standing water at the front door after heavy rain. I solved the problem by having concrete installed (patterned, coloured), replacing some of the gravel and old driveway, changed the gradient and included a channel drain system so that the water was captured and directed to the drains proper. Wouldn't have been necessary if proper thought had been applied to the gravel in the first instance.

My Mum has a teeny back garden in London. But somehow she has managed to plant a dwarf apple tree, plum and pear tree, roses and a multitude of containers with tomatoes, herbs etc. The amount of birds in that postage stamp size garden is phenomenal. It's like a little oasis in the middle of London. I'm always impressed to see what people do with their tiny city gardens.

Yes your right, the U.S. is a beautiful country in so many ways, and many different kinds of beauty and splendor from state to state,
So your coming home, are you retiring in the U.K.? it reminds me of the film pretty woman ---- when the hotel manager says to Richard Gere ---- it must be very difficult to let something so beautiful go,
I think all expats who have returned home from America would agree that it wasn't easy to let such beauty go,
I for one have no regrets in coming home, and Ive said that there isn't a thing that I miss about the U.S.
but that isn't exactly true really, ----- really to be honest one cant paint that statement with such a big brush, in the whole picture there will obviously be many things that we all miss, especially if one has lived there for decades like many of us, ----- if we were to be honest with ourselves, and that goes for me too, the memories will last forever, and I wouldn't have changed a thing, I cant and wont knock America, I had a good life there for a long time, and Ive met some truly remarkable people there, Im just against the policies of government there now, and the in your face corporate greed,
but then we suddenly enter a new chapter in our lives when we get older, and for some of us the UK calls us back again,
And what a lovely post yours is too! I'm definitely not leaving because hate America. I've had some very hard times here but I have made some wonderful friends who have helped me through. And the scenery is spectacular, but I'm not a big fan of the culture or politics.

I'm not retiring but I approached my boss about working for them in the UK and he jumped on it! We already have a European rep but the territory is too vast for him to cover and he hardly ever makes it over to the UK. We already have a presence there so while I will be breaking ground with new customers, there are some who already know and love us! I know it will be different there than here and that I have a lot to learn but I am happy to be working for a company I know well and have respect for.

My boss has been wonderfully supportive, they've done their due diligence to make it happen and we're at the final crossing the T's and dotting the i's stage of the contract. I shall be an independent contractor which, in my mind, is far better than being an employee as it frees me up to pursue other things as well. He's being incredibly generous remuneration wise and has even paid for my airfare to go back to Heathrow, come back for a trade show in Houston in October via Denver to see my son and home via Atlanta to see my very good friend who is also moving from here to be closer to her family. He said he wants me to have a good and happy life so that I keep working for them!

So now, instead of driving all over CO, KS, NE, WY and SD, I shall be driving all over the UK and Ireland! I can't believe how lucky I am.

Oooo, rhubarb crumble. I can't wait! I haven't made it for 22 years! I used to grate a little bit of orange rind in it. That was probably a recommendation from Delia Smith

The other night I had a dream that was mixed with scenes and people from the USA and the UK all in the very same dream. The scenes were woven together as if they all took place in the same area, but as I gradually woke up I was able to realize that some scenes were from the USA and some from the UK. It was the strangest feeling, as if my life was split. After all, how could the people who were dear to me throughout my life be so far apart?

There is not much here these days that I am sorry to leave behind. It is some of the memories, such as in that dream, that are tugging at my heartstrings. However, they are memories and belong in the past. Nevertheless, the dream was such that I could go and visit Target department store and Marks and Spencer in the very same town - such a weird dream!

There are some things I can't wait to leave behind, though.

I feel so lucky that I have a terrific old friend and sweetheart from years ago to help me through this adjustment. It's really going to help me because he has changed very little throughout the years, although we are both much older now. I am already getting acclimatized to the UK again because we talk about all things British on Skype for at least two hours every day lol! In talking to him, I have realized just how stressed and frantic I am over here. In the beginning, I couldn't believe how relaxed he was and then I realized it is the general pace of life that is different and it is something to which I am longing to return.

The biggest thing I will miss is the familiarity I feel here. I don't like it but it feels familiar because I have been here so long. I think that feeling will disappear as soon as I land on British soil.
I had a dream the other night that there were a lot of people in my house that I didn't know. I took it as a sign of all the new characters that will be coming in to my life.

The familiarity of a place can certainly be hard to leave behind. I know how to live in Boulder, I know how things work, I know where to find what I need. I think that has kept me here longer than necessary. I realized, as I was making my final decision to go home, that I had become afraid of making the wrong decision and so I did nothing and then became more and more afraid to take a chance.

That fear seems to have crept up on me over the years here because I was never averse to taking a risk 10 or 15 years ago. I don't know if it's an age thing - that as we get older, we want more security - or whether it's that there seems to be a lot of fear in the US around work and benefits and healthcare, etc.

But then a bigger fear started to creep up on me - that I would do nothing and would never know what it was like to live in England again and to be English. A friend said to me that she thought it important to 're-pot' ourselves sometimes and I realized I had become quite pot-bound.

When I talked to my eldest son about it, he said "When you start thinking about doing something, it's only a matter of time until you do it." Whether he meant to or not, he helped me get on with it!

Or we all come to see you in your new place
I had one last night that we couldn't get to the airport, then got a lift and was dropped in the wrong place, walked miles and kept losing Dh and Dd as they looked at more interesting things along the way and I just kept herding them to the check in desk.
I think we are "pot bound" here to, getting those roots to loosen up can be hard. My fears are all coming to a head it seems. I worry so much about getting work, about everyone blaming me for not getting things arraigned properly, all in my head of course.

I like that analogy, whether it be for a day trip or a life change. But then it comes to mind that some plants need to be constrained in a pot to produce more fruit without spreading aimlessly everywhere. A case of finding the right size and shape of pot I guess.

The original intent of this forum, I think, was to give information for returning Brits.

So how about this one. In the US to dial a number locally you dial 7 numbers or if the phone you are calling is out of the area you may add 3 more numbers, so how is it in Britain? They seem to have about 9 numbers to dial.

I want to thank you all for your help to my questions that I posted recently.

Cheers

In most areas of the country you can simply dial a number without the 'local area' code.

However, some areas (including the area I live in) recently changed and we have to include the local area code (01202 for where I live)... here's a news article about the change...

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-dorset-20165742

Generally speaking if some one were to give you there number, they would include the area code with that number - probably starting with a '0'.

There is no harm done in using the area code even if it is not necessary, so I would say always use the code and you won't go wrong.

It depends
To dial local landline in the same area code use the last 6 figures. If you not sure if the other person is in the same area there is no problem adding the area code to the front, it will work just the same for a local call (in my experience). If you know you calling out of area add the area code. Area codes begin with 0 (zero) and can be two three four or five digits after the initial 0.

I can't get my head around how people remember and state their phone numbers here. The full number usually includes 11 numbers. However, depending on the area code, it might be stated as 4-3-4, or 5-3-3. For example, Glasgow is 0141, the area of the city might be 548, then you get the specific number, XXXX, so 0141-548-3442 (no, I'm not putting my number on a public forum!) However, the town/village I live has a 5-digit prefix code. For example, Dumbarton is 01389, so a person might state or write their number as 01389-345-995 (or even 01389-345995 and expect you to remember 6 numbers).

I recall reading that people's brains can remember numbers most efficiently in clusters of 3, or 4 (maybe that's why we group numbers in 1,000's).

I tend to memorise mobile numbers as 5-3-3 (07783-886-237). But when I tell someone my number they seem to want to reformat it into something like 0778-388-6237 ... confusing! [that's not my number, if you haven't already guessed)]
