Cool. I've been here just over eight myself, also moved for marriage. I have been feeling more and more the same about a return to NI as you posted about earler. I used to want to go back desperately then I started to realise I probably wouldn't even fit in back there anymore.

Don't get me wrong there are certain days of the year that I feel terribly homesick (normally around mid July ) but on the whole apart from wanting the odd fish supper or a gravy chip or a pasty I feel that the US is my home.

At least we still get one day off work in July out here

I do miss the food as well, mostly a fry or chippy food. I can get by though, I have a decent Indian nearby, a few Brit stores if I want some back bacon or bangers. I have, though, discovered how much I love Mexican food since moving here, which is plentiful. That, and the Chinese takeaway in town is the dog's bollocks as well ...
