Re: The 'Bon Voyage' Thread! - Flight Tracker!

Just logged on quickly to catch you before you go, Beedubya, to wish you a safe flight home. Maybe we'll get time to have that catch-up when I get back to the UK in September if you are still...

Re: Best website for Flights. Aus-UK

I have found Flight Centre to be competitive but it's irritating that you can't get a quote online with them and rather have to speak to a Consultant.

Another competitive online website is...

Re: Advice on Moving Back to UK as a Single Parent

Yes, that is my biggest fear, to be honest. I wouldn't blame him if he did. I would put up a fight if I were in his shoes.

I'm booking in for us to go to a lawyer who specialises in family law...

Re: Advice on where to live in SE near Egham/Staines

Lol, at this rate we might be flat-mates! I've replied to your thread about Staines as I used to live there and grew up in the area, so I know it pretty well.

Re: Staines as in Heathrow? HELP!

Hi Barb,

I grew up around the Staines area (parents live in Egham, town next to Staines) and I lived in Staines until 2001, plus worked in Staines for a time.

I know the area very well and...

Re: Awesome Lake District Photos

Lol, although I considered myself well-travelled (always oversea's), Watford really was the furthest north I'd been in the UK! It wasn't until I was 28 that I went up to the Lakes, well out of my...

Re: The Lake District

You got me thinking about it now as I hadn't thought of Kendal as a possible place to move to. But as much as I love the Lakes, it wouldn't be such a great place to live during tourist season. We...

Re: Advice on where to live in SE near Egham/Staines

Thanks Tr1boy. Godalming was a place on my list but I thought it would be a pretty expensive place for rentals etc. It's prime commuter belt, isn't it? It's a lovely area to live.

Have you got...

Re: Advice on where to live in SE near Egham/Staines

Ditto growing up on a council estate.....and that's why I don't want to live near one again! I hadn't considered Shepperton or Laleham, and maybe even the older side of Staines is worth looking at. ...

Re: OVER 50's & 60's MOVING BACK TO THE UK.

I know what you mean. I have finally found a place that sells decent croissants (not really a British product I know :D) but the ones you get over here are just heavy lumps of stodgy dough. Horrible!...

Re: The Lake District

I was looking at the pics on the lakelandcam yesterday and it made me so homesick. I am seriously thinking that I'll either settle permanently back in Yorkshire or look into Cumbria.
