Was it the "Love" comment that did it?

It seems Sheffield has a language all its own, If I want a dose of reality I watch "The Full Monty".
We had a few days visit to Sheffield earlier this year and thoroughly enjoyed it, people were very pleasant.

Not just the 'love' comment but the way you write your posts.

Hi everyone- thought I would pop in and say HI! Still in Canada- now decided to wait and see how things look when I retire. (4 years hopefully) nervous about moving back for a number of reasons; 1. healthcare; 2. crime and refugee immigrants 3. ability to live somewhere quieter but with good access to good healthcare.

Canada is so expensive now its not even funny- Liberals in charge Federally and in Ontario- our electricity (hydro) highest in North America- my monthly bill for 651 KWH usage is $221 per month, around 111 pounds.

Thinking I would like to move somewhere south in Dorset or Devon/Somerset...

thoughts/advice?

Merry Christmas to everyone!!

Canada's carbon tax is (almost) revenue neutral so I look on this as a positive about Canada.

Shelley they say Portsmouth is a lovely place to live, with Southsea a couple of miles away where they have daily boat trips to France, and a short ferry ride to the Isle of white,

So I got to see the match between Chelsea and Bournemouth today Boxing day.
This Christmas I missed my mothers mince pies and her bunloaf to name a few.

Wishing everyone here at MBttUK a very happy new year. If one of your goals for the year is to go home, may your dream come true. Otherwise, a very happy and healthy one to one and all
