Re: Husband Going Back for Funeral

Thank you both for your kind words.

My husband and I have been using Messenger and Skype to keep in touch and send photos. It's really been helpful - I cannot fathom how people dealt with the...

Husband Going Back for Funeral

Forgive me if this is a bit of a ramble, but I'm just looking for a place to share with people who will understand. Hubby is on a plane back to the UK as I type this. We received a call that his Aunt...

Re: Take it or leave it

When we came here 5 years ago, we shipped over approximately 80 boxes of items plus a couple of pieces of furniture.

When we pack up to head back, I plan on taking about half that amount of...

Re: Lease or sell...

So sorry to hear about your difficulty selling. That's what is keeping us from packing up right now. Thankfully we don't have any visa deadlines forcing us to leave now, otherwise we'd lose money...

Re: Pretty sure we are moving back to England from the USA

This thread really strikes a chord for me!

There is so much of this country that we would love to see, but my measley 10 days of holiday/sick time per year make it nearly impossible. I remember...

Re: Residence Requirement for Settlement Visa

I'm going through the process right now. We will not be buying straight away so we will be staying with my husband's parents. We have had them write a letter stating that:

Re: Overwhelmed by moving list

I'm so sorry - I cannot find my paperwork with the amounts for the stateroom. We moved back in 2006 so I'm not sure how much help it would be. I will keep looking and if I find it I will post the...

Re: Overwhelmed by moving list

Hi English Bride,

I totally understand what you are feeling. Hubby and I are making plans for our return and it seems quite daunting at times.

I'm the American and he's the Brit. We have the UK...

Re: Returning to the UK - US tax issues?

I'm not sure if I'm reading your question correctly or not, but taxes in the US are not based upon time in the country. It's based upon income (and some other special circumstances.)

For example,...

Re: Shipping US to UK: repacking required??

I'd check with the shipping company on that. The "destination", as far as the actual transporting ship is concered, is a port of entry. Once the container ship arrives the items have to clear...

Re: Shipping US to UK: repacking required??

While I packed the individual boxes for our move, the company we hired had to stack them on pallets for transport. They then shrink-wrapped the pallets to prevent shifting and make the stacks...

Re: Places to live near Bracknell?

Sonning has a great pub (The Bull) by the Thames but not too much else. Twyford has great shops (Waitrose!) but also has the advantage of a train station. You could be in London in under an hour by...

Re: Places to live near Bracknell?

Hubby worked in Bracknell when we were first married. We lived in Lower Earley (Reading.) It's a very suburban area and not for everyone, but very convenient. We then moved out to Sonning - the...

Re: Reasons for going and returning...

Good post! :thumbup:

It's the same thing here in the US. There are so many places that we'd like to visit but it's just not as practical as we had thought. I had visions of driving to Vegas for a...

Re: Confused about spouse and settlement visas

No, the 2-year one is the Limited Leave to Remain (LLR). I had that when I lived in the UK before because we were just married. If I had stayed I could've applied for the ILR when that one expired....

Re: Confused about spouse and settlement visas

Actually (just to confuse things a bit more) what you get when you apply from another country is an ILE (indefinite leave to Enter) and then once you move to the UK it becomes an ILR (indefinite...

Re: Any advice on Houston TX?

Re: USA newbies - kettles in stock @ Costco!

We bought ours at Tuesday Morning shortly after we moved here. They're a bit hit & miss so you never know what's in stock. Didn't see them again until a few months later but then found another one...

Re: Returning to the UK during pregnancy

Don't forget that you will need a letter from your current (US) doctor stating that you are safe to fly as you will be so far along. ;)

Best of luck and congratulations! :)
