Re: Which Suburb Toronto???

I wouldn't suggest living in the 'burbs, where you need a car to get anywhere. If I were you I would live in a nice Toronto neighbourhood like High Park or Bloor West village.

Anyone moved back to the U.K. while pregnant?

Hi - I was just wondering if anyone here has any experience of moving back to the U.K. while pregnant? Was it easy to get seen by the NHS on your return for pre natal care?

Thanks!

Re: Anybody else glad to see snow in Ontario?

I'm not enjoying it that much - I hate slush and the streets of Toronto are now full of it! I was quite enjoying a green winter for a change.
