Re: Fallen for a Kiwi - now what?

Thank you both, BEVS and Persephone, for your kind posts. You articulated pretty well how I'm feeling. It's not, and never was, about letting him know how much I'm 'giving up'.

Re: Fallen for a Kiwi - now what?

Re: Moving to Torbay!!

Re: Fallen for a Kiwi - now what?

Re: Fallen for a Kiwi - now what?

Thanks Londonescapee... I'm not sure; are there age restrictions on getting a UK holiday visa? TBH, he's pretty set in his ways and has a mortgage etc so am not sure how easy it would be to 'opt out'...
