My husband's company is transferring us to his London headquarters from Texas. We have four kids who are all very excited about the move. We are currently awaiting our visas and plan to fly over in mid-July.

The second set of movers just left from doing their estimate and I am preparing to put our house up for rent at the end of this month so I am one stressed out person.

I'm waiting for a determination of the UK settlement visa (Leave to Enter) after marrying a man I met online several years ago in an international current events discussion forum. We married in Scotland in Jan after spending several months (I was on a visitor visa) making sure two 50+ers could manage to share one tiny Scottish bathroom, lol.

My paternal great and grandparents are buried in Caithness, a few hundred miles north of our Angus area home, so for me it's been almost a home coming, I can't wait with any patience for my visa determination-I really miss my Morayshire born husband

ETA: Maternal everyone including mum buried in their native Wales. When I get back to Scotland we're traveling down to pay our respects and catch up with cousins

I am an "Old Git" that left the green and pleasant land for the small Atlantic Island of El Hierro.

The reason, quite simply, I am retired and I hated the English winters

Well let's see.

I moved to the US 23 years ago when I was young and carefree (read careless). Had a blast but now I'm old and tired and want to go home. Married and getting divorced (yay me) so taking this is my window of opportunity to jump ship.

Oldest child returned to London when he reached 18, middle child is finishing up college now and plans to return when she's done. Third kid is almost 15, was born here but is excited to leave and start anew in England.

Gave my job notice yesterday but since they have offices in London they're trying to work out a deal where I can telecommute from London since I already work from home here. Fingers crossed it works out. In the mean time I'm job hunting and flat hunting and sorting and packing and, and, and....just happy to be heading home.

Hi

I am a USC and married my British husband April 9 in Jamaica. We were putting our application together to apply for him to come to the US (with a CR-1 visa) but now he has just been offered his dream job in London, so it looks like I'm going there! We're waiting until mid-July to make sure he gets through the probationary period (just in case!) before I do anything drastic like quit my job. I'm quite excited to be going to London. For one thing, I can get my spouse visa in less than a month, while the US visa for him could take 8-12 months.

Hello everyone

I live in the south of Spain, after deciding to leave my government job in the UK. I live here with my OH and my 2 year old son. My OH commutes back and forth to Aberdeen and works in the oil and gas industry.

I am from north Aberdeenshire (not too far away from Caithness, good luck with that, if you need any help with the area pm me!) but I've lived all over Britain and also worked for a short spell in upstate New York where I was a riding instructor.

Love living in Spain but it seems my OH is about to be posted to Oz in about September.. Another upheaval!

Best

Sam xx

Hi Kings, Born UK, emigrated to Oz in 1984 and am still homesick. Want to come home but don't know how I will stand with DSS and my pension when time comes around. Feel somewhat displaced as most of adult life has been in Oz, but heart is in UK. When looking to future and pension, UK don't seem to want to know as not much in contributions been paid but if I leave Oz, I will not get pensions from here either. Have a few years before pension time, but looking forward as to how things will be and it is not looking good financially. Would love to hear from anyone that has faced similar position
