We really are looking forward to returning home, all our family are still in the U.K. and we can't wait for the day to come. Yet another adventure for us.
I have been reading through some of the posts and there is lots of info for me to go through.I am making notes as I go through the posts on things like shipping, tax etc. plenty to keep me busy.

Hello Sentosa.
Welcome to the thread, I have similar concerns, the thought of something major happening, It happens to someone every day, we just hope its not us.

Good luck to you both.

Oh, well it was only money, she says with a angry look in her eye

Will be getting Wee Mac close to Christmas I think, he is growing and is already a month old, he is eating on his own and growling and bugging his brothers and sister. I will have time to stay home with him over the holidays and will be finding a dog walker to take him out once a day. They cost about £6, and I know that sounds like a lot, but the amount of joy he willbring me until my other guys get here, you just can't measure with money.

Today I am going horse back riding for an hour or two, it is lovely and sunny so looking forward to enjoying it. Hope Rod is settling in to his new life back in UK and that everyone else is doing well, bye for now

Hello Ed.
I'm Impressed, 1.2 Million is a real Biz, I do feel for you being ripped off like that, some people are SCUM, there are so many scammers around and they are pretty smart, I just wish them the worst luck in the world, cos thats all they deserve, Its one thing to earn money, its another to hang on to it. huhhhhh... still you hold your head up high and move on, Good for you.
Now it seems great that you finished up in the healthcare industry... Wonderful.

I'm not a fan of financial planners but Ive never had enough money to need one.

Partners in Biz, Id find that hard too, because sometimes I feel very strongly about something, maybe its a gut feeling, even so Id find it difficult to do something against my better judgement, you cant change that logic.

Wee Mac thats a great name, I have a feeling you will call him Mac for short, My Mum had a dog called Mac as a Child.

Horse riding, thats what I like to hear, someone thats living the dream, Good on yer, I hope it was Fun...

Best Wishes as always...

Hi Windsong, I expect you receive the US SS / pension income in full , not taxed at source - and are obligated to report it as taxable income above your personal allowance. Will post more when we start to receive US SS / pension, we not yet made our first UK / USC abroad filings,

Resident in UK, you would report any taxable amount to HMRC and then file it also to IRS claiming credit for foreign taxes paid.
A useful strategy seems to file extension for US then can file UK first and then make any foreign claims on the extended US filing.

But if it not above Personal Allowance there is zero to report and zero tax taken - I hope that is the case

Hang on - what's this? A private party at Greggs Bakery??

Wind, you really need to get into reading the back posts on here, Anna (AES) was on the very first page here, she is English and has gone from living in the USA to Malta via the UK.

You will most likely find answers to your questions and worries too, never mind reading books, start from TT's post one and we will see you in about a week.

What did I learn from listening to the recording, when you sign up an estate agent ask them to walk around the house with you ask them to point out the good areas of the house and ask them what they know about your house from looking at the information on it. I have decided that ours knows didly squaq about ours. She was vague and when asked a couple of questions did not know the answers. So next time we hire an estate agent I shall make sure that they know my house inside out every detail of it I dont care how many others they have to sell. They are getting paid to sell mine.
I am in a bad mood as I am really sick my head is pounding and I cannot swallow. My husband brought me a round of toast this morning and I didnt realize how bad my throat was, when the toast went down it was like glass cutting the sides of my throat
So once again its a no on the house. Still it looks very nice

I get about 40 pounds a week pension from the UK. But I stopped working at about 30 and then worked on and off till we left when I was 36.

My niece gets her food delivered and then just goes into town to buy veg and food she wants from Marks and Spencers. I bought my Mum one of those carts on wheels you would have thought I had told her she was going in a nursing home. She went beserk. Told me I should use it. But she did keep it and years later she did use it.

Windsong. We get grey squirrels here in the NE and a few Red. Some of the grey squirrels are as big as a small cat. In the UK they have had trouble with the grey squirrels they are trying to increase the amount of red squirrels. I like the squirrels but not when they are emptying my bird feeders.
I cannot believe you put a recorder in a basket LOL!!

But well done for doing that, at least you know where you stand......do you have Plan B worked out yet?

See you tomorrow Rosie, hope the trains are running well.........

I was reading some old posts yesterday and saw how ED/Peigi had picked up some great bargains in auctions and remembered there is an auction house in Frome, can't remember the name of it, but it is up near the back of that old St Johns Church.

Great reply to Peigi, I wondered if she was suing that so called Financial Advisor, God it makes you sick when you think of people just ripping others off with no conscience.
