Thanks - and I did email her, bless her. Sometimes we think about these things and don't do them. I got a phone call last night from a friend here in the States, to let me know that a friend of...

Re: What to do when..............

You know, I was thinking that too. Gazza - I have to say, and I know this could be causing some trouble - but what you wrote about your OH's attitude towards you only going back to the UK for little...

Re: "You must be mad to move back here"

Re: Letting go of friendships...

That is excellent advice - hard to take, because of the bitter...

Re: Letting go of friendships...

Re: "You must be mad to move back here"
