Re: Advice for a Canadian moving to England?

Thanks everyone for your informed opinions! It really did give me a lot to think about and removed some anxiety as well. I'll definitely come back and let you all know what I end up doing.

Great...

Re: Advice for a Canadian moving to England?

I think I'm going to share this thread with my OH after he's been back there for a month or so (he was going to be leaving ahead of me anyway to sort things out) and see if it's ringing any bells....

Re: Advice for a Canadian moving to England?

Just when I think I know exactly what to do, my mind shifts. It's been really helpful hearing the opinions of UK natives who have lived elsewhere.

Re: Advice for a Canadian moving to England?

It's harsh, but yeah.. that's what a lot of my friends have been saying. My mother thinks I should just compromise for him and come home if I'm miserable, his parents think I'm difficult, it's a mess!

Re: Advice for a Canadian moving to England?

That's heartbreaking and scary. I think before I set foot in the UK I'll have a letter of permission to leave with my son written and signed by my OH.

Re: Advice for a Canadian moving to England?

That's a possibility, that he's just missing his parents. He's also convinced that he'll make it big over there with the products his father is distributing. They had bad luck (i.e. made bad...

Re: Advice for a Canadian moving to England?

The way it looks now, he'll be going with or without me and our son. I think you're right I do need to see it beforehand and we have to have a solid agreement. This should be a fun prospect, but it's...

Re: Advice for a Canadian moving to England?

I think that's the reason I wanted to ask here - you all wouldn't gloss over everything like some of the expat Canadians will. They don't want to highlight the negative because they're living there...

Re: Advice for a Canadian moving to England?

Thanks for your reply and the link. I think it would help if I met up with some expat Canadians there, I heard there's quite a large gathering of them for Canada Day in London. See, if London was the...

I envy people like you who can make a decision without overanalyzing things. I think I would be much better off if I did less research, but it's one of my favourite things to do. OH wishes Google...

Ha, you're right. He might have his fill after a few months for all I know. I'll check out that forum.

Re: Advice for a Canadian moving to England?

Thanks, your post is encouraging. It's true I really need to see it to make a decision. I'm driving myself and my OH crazy with all the ruminating. I'm not very young, 27, but he is 25 and still in...

Re: Advice for a Canadian moving to England?

The indoor ski slope sounds like fun, lol. It would be ironic for me to go there since we haven't been skiing here in the past three years and there are two outdoor slopes within driving distance....

Re: Advice for a Canadian moving to England?

That's a great list. I've been to that forum but have never seen that thread, only the homesickness ones. All of those things sound inviting. :)

Re: Advice for a Canadian moving to England?

That's good to hear as well. Thanks! I would definitely be making many trips to the coast as I've never lived inland. I'm a sea woman.

Re: Advice for a Canadian moving to England?

That's good to hear. I really haven't met many other mums here and I know there are lots around. Maybe the overpopulation thing would come in handy for making friends.

Re: Advice for a Canadian moving to England?

Bedford. Probably not much better than Bradford from what I hear. I'm not in the business of tit-waving but I might take to getting extremely drunk. ;)

Re: Advice for a Canadian moving to England?

That's a scary possibility. I didn't even consider that OH might be able to prevent me from leaving with my son. I don't think he would do that but who knows?

You're right about that, I won't know until I try and I know I'd regret it if I didn't try at all. The drizzle shouldn't be an obstacle, lol.

Re: Advice for a Canadian moving to England?

Bedford area. I have no choice in the matter as that's where his parents are living and he'll be working for them.
