Unlike yourself, i'm not into assumptions. Why would my plateau necessarily have to be higher? Why not just slightly to the right or left?
You just sounded a bit up yourself that was all, sincere apologies if I have jumped in without considering the other possibilities.

Thanks Sally.

She is the shining light in my life. She manages to keep smiling even though she has not had a great start to life. She was born with club feet. She has had plaster casts on them since she was 2 weeks old and last week had to have her first operation at 10 weeks old. Sadly, the operation was unsuccessful so we are off to the hospital again on Wednesday to discuss the next plan of attack.

What a shame, she looks such a happy baby. Hope it all gets sorted soon.

Just because they still live in the same area and drink in the same local though doesn't always mean that they haven't experienced wonderful and amazing things in their lives. It's just that they have done it without the upheaval of emigrating. A pal of ours would never move from the village where he was born, yet has the most amazing holidays all over the world and in the UK several times a year. He's into loads of different things and is always trying out new adventures.

It doesn't always follow that just because you haven't emigrated you don't lead an interesting life, and sometimes it just takes a bit of time talking to people to get on that same wavelength and fine common interests.
Hi Louise,
You are right (you wise thing you!!) when we went back home for our visit this year some of our friends drink in the same pubs, live in the area they were born in and some work and the same place they have for years....but most of them have lived and travelled and experienced lots of interesting things and where once I would of thought of doing some of the same things "boring" now I find it wounderful..to have a local with faces you have know for years.....working at the same company and people just perfect and knowing your postman etc just means so much more....so thank you for answering people who always tell me when I come back from a visit home "oh poeple are sitting in the same seat in the same pub" or "they only go on holiday to Spain etc" and these are the people who just buy crates of beer week in week out and drink in their "yards" and hardly ever go on holiday because it is to expensive!!! so thank you once again.....
Jackie in Perth far far away!!!

Actually now when I think about it, most of these people that sit in the same pub etc etc are quite happy with their lives, we on the other hand all want to try different things in life, but at the end of the day we all end up doing the same old stuff

I am comforted by the fact that these people are happy maybe I should take a leaf out of their books, cos I have got to accept my life (and its not that bad) instead of trying to gain summin thats not really there (if you know what I mean)

I would give anything to wake up in a house in the UK knowing that I will be there for as long as I want. I crave that day to day "tedium" everyone else seeks to escape. When you live your life on a rollercoaster with ever changing scenery, the same old same old seems like heaven.

Oct 06) and rent until next July when I will then go HOME with our youngest and the others follow in Nov 08 (gulp!!). BUT if we can we will go sooner....it is just our eldest with his education....wish we had gone two years ago..so for anyone out there do it the earliest you can, it's the best way!!!

Know exactly what you mean...all my family (in-laws included) and friends are contented with their lives...I loved the fact that my old "postie" still remembers me and the milkman (when we go home for a holiday) and my neighbours are still there!!! bliss...my husband loves our beer garden in our local pub..in fact in the 8 (nearly 9) years we have been here both our old local pubs have just improved with age....especially the Dane Bank beer garden......and also the Hare & Hounds in Werneth Low...views from their beer garden is just wonder...over the moors and views to Cheshire.....you cannot by times like we had at those places and our friends are still going there.....glup!!!
Jackie in ......never never land!!!

But it's like I said earlier Kath - many people on here (not you) assume that just because people live in the same town/village and frequent the same pub for many years, that they don't have a life and don't try different things. They feel sorry for them because they think they haven't experienced anything.

There is an assumtion that they are boring and don't do anything. This couldn't be further from the truth - I know loads of people who, despite living in the same place have amazing lives - they travel the world, take part in various sports/activities, have fab social lives and truly are interesting people to talk to.

Personally I reckon they are probably far more interesting that those people who have emigrated to Australia and who spend their weekends going to an endless round of beaches and barbies.

I have to agree with you even though I'm happy enough in the USA...and have no need right now to leave it...

I did so much more traveling in the USA when I lived outside of it...I had a less stressful life...I don't think I knew what worry was....maybe its age...maybe it is the move to here thats changed me....but I'm not the person I was...
