Default Any Brits living in Murphy/Plano (TX) area?

Hi Everyone,

I would love to know anyone living near Murphy, Tx (which is near Plano area). I have been in Dallas for nearly 4 1/2 years and I have hardly met any Brits since I have been here! I really miss home, but I am trying to adjust to my new life here. However, would love to meet people back home and see how they are adjusting to life here in Texas.

Cheers
Sandy

A little further down the road from you, just recently moved to Rockwall from Baton Rouge. Been here in the US for about 2 years now. Must say Texas is a vast improvement on Louisiana.

Given you've been in Dallas for a while I'm sure you're probably aware there's a brit store out in Grapevine (http://www.british-emporium.com/), that'll sure help me in 'adjusting'. My boss' South African wife got me a basket of goodies when we moved in which included Hobnobs!... mmmm.

Hi Sandhya, late reply but I just stumbled over this.
Yes there are a few of us out there in the Plano, Murphy North Dallas area.

I work retail in the area and am forever bumping in to ex pats, even a couple that knew me through my UK sisters, but have never met and I had moved since they had last spoken to them! Small World after all.

I love it here, been here since 2001, heats a little much, the Storms though scary are fascinating and the opportunities are awesome if you are prepared to work hard.

Now as the down side the driving sucks, show me a soccer mom in a SUV with a starbucks in one hand and a cell phone in the other and I'd say you're in Plano!

Other than that the only down side is the craving for the odd foods now and again, and the "Gee I love your accent".................PUKE, sorry about that I had to heave!

Feel free to mail me if you need any info about some thing as i have found a few places for taking the sting out of the homesick blues!!

Hi Maria and others in the Murphy, TX area.

My wife & I have been in the general area for 13 years and in Murphy for four years. Would like to be in touch with others in this area. Hopefully some of you in this thread are still in the area? Please feel free to send me an email.

Cheers,
Mike

We're in Grapevine and have been here since May of this year.
I lived in Charlotte, NC between 2000 and 2004, then lived in Mexico for 5 years.
Moved back to the US (reluctantly) when our green cards arrived.

I don't like the cold spell we're having, if the temperature gets this low every year I think we're going to have to move somewhere warmer...
