    I'm living in South Oz at the moment but we are coming back to the UK in the next couple of months :dance: cant wait, many of you will probably think i'm mad but after going back for hols over christmas i've decided i dont want to be here, i want Abi to know my family and my family to see her growing up.

    Anyway i'm originally from South Wales and my partner is from Leeds but we lived in Bristol before we came here, it looks like we will have to go back to Bristol at first as my partner can rejoin and be on the same pay scale as he was when we left where as if we go to a different area he will have to start from the bottom again, he wants to go back to West Yorkshire i'm a bit worried as i don't know anyone there just thinking it would be good to get to know any of you that live in or around there.

    We lived in Scotland for 12 years before moving back to SA. I had been away from SA for 16 years. Lived in Israel and UK before - travelled for 2 yrs. Met DH in the process.

    Happy here, but miss shopping in UK. All my friends in Scotland. We're hoping to move to Cape Town soon.

    Only Joking, Milton Keynes/Bedford/Northampton area. No point saying where I live as it's a tiny town but it's 15miles in the middle from all three of these town centres :) I'm technically in Buckinghamshire, but on the border of Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire too. I'm technically in South East England, but also has been known to be in South Midlands, East Midlands, Midlands or East Anglia!!

    Don't think they are sure where we are :lol:
