Re: Back in Scotland

You're in my old stomping ground - I used to live in Pencaitland, just up the road from the 'Burgh. I was back last year on holiday and had tears in my eyes driving round East Lothian, it's so...

Re: 40k in canada vs 50k in uk....what is better?

$40K in Canada is a fairly low salary and wouldn't go very far. GBP50K would give you considerably more purchasing power.

Re: Wanting to move back to N Ireland

That just makes it worse, you should know better. The only people I have ever seen wearing flak jackets in NI are police or military personnel. To insinuate that flak jackets are necessary for...

Re: Wanting to move back to N Ireland

As one born and raised there, I am very well aware. However, I have noted that it seems to be those who aren't Irish make more of a deal out of how to refer to the country than those who live there....

Re: Advice for family wanting to move to Ontario

You possibly need to look outside of Ontario and think about Manitoba - Winnipeg is a trucking hub due to it being the geographic centre of Canada and so close to the US border. Moving on the...

Re: Shipping some furniture and posessions from Canada to UK

Upakweship is a name that seems to come up often when discussing self-pack moving. However, as my shipper informed me when moving to Canada, customs may be more likely to open and check a container...

Re: Wanting to move back to N Ireland

Not at all - I've just been emailing with my cousin's wife, who was born and bred in "the south" and that's how she refers to her homeland!

Re: Colon Cancer Screening - DIY test

As one who has to suffer the indignity of a colonoscopy annually, I can def say the scope itself is the best bit. The prep, however, is a different matter entirely :thumbdown:

Lovely to hear you're back and enjoying your new life in the old country. Norwich is a lovely city surrounded by beautiful countryside. If you do get a car, Southwold and Aldburgh are nice places to...

Indeed. I'm waiting to see how the election plays out - if the witch remains, then my hopes of moving back any time soon are pretty much toast.

Re: Tim Hortons to open first UK cafe in Glasgow

The funny thing is, tho, that Tim's isn't a Canadian-owned company any more.

Re: I'm a Brit, get me out of here!

Thanks Novo. I don't know how you lasted so many years in Canada, esp coming from the NE! I worked in Hexham many moons ago, such a lovely place.

Re: I'm a Brit, get me out of here!

I did contribute many years of my life to the operation of the country (NHS, military). I hardly call a desire to go to my place of birth and upbringing a "sense of entitlement"!

Re: I'm a Brit, get me out of here!

I have lived elsewhere in Canada. Actually, if I had to live anywhere else in Canada, I would choose Winnipeg, to be nearer to family. Unfortunately, my husband's job can't transfer there.
