  6. Sorry Nottingham!!!!!!

    Thanks Guys, We have been very lucky to have at least experience this and have a choice, and even better, we have the support of all our family. They will miss our daughter, but all said that we were "bloody mad" for even thinking we would live here. Bless em. Anyway thanks again, and will keep on here as we always have a fair old giggle when reading the posts. Really would like to join the BIP and Ilkoad fan club. Ta chucks Tracey
  7. Hello Everyone, Just to say that even though i dont post very often i love coming on this forum. As some of you know my hubbie and I moved back 3 weeks ago after living in France for 13 years ago. But unfortunately we arent staying . Hubbie has had a great job offer back in France !tanning! and we just havent been able to settle here. we have loved visting places, but dont think we could live here for good. I think that Nottingham has changed and more importantly we have. But thanks guys for all your advice and help. B) Tracey

    We are just up the road from Cavalaire. About 10 minutes. Finding it very hard to think about leaving. x
  9. Help

    Some very beautiful coastal drives down that way. Did you manage to get to the Grand Prix!!! We are further down the coast Grimaud, near St tropez. We do have some gorgeous beaches, ones away from the tourists. Let me know if you plan to come again. How do i add a link with some pics?
  10. Help

    Hello Mick Glad you enjoyed your hols. Where were you staying. It really is a beautiful time of the year at the moment. Looks like we are coming back to uk for 2 months and then returning!! Hubbie has a hard time distancing himself from the wine yards!!!!
  11. Help

    Hubbie has just had excellent job offer in france the equiv of £1700 net each month along with accomadation. Due we still risk coming back to Nottingham to no jobs and no home, staying with family until we can get ourselves sorted. Think we may come back for 2 months and see. Hubbie can start 01/08/05. Is Nottingham that bad as the media claim. We have a very quiet but safe kind of life !faint! Oh well, realyy have got the wibblies, only 5 weeks to go. thanks for anyone who took the time to read this. xxx
  12. Hello All, Well only 9 weeks to go and we will be back in Nottingham.. Starting to panic a little, this isnt just a holiday its for real. Starting to say goodbyes, blah blah blah. Everyone seems to want to run down england, ok i can not say anything i havent lived there for over 12 years. But what i can tell you that the South of France is a beautiful place to live, but boy France has its problems too (and im not just talking about the french) I am hoping that after being away i will appreciate the things that once we took for granted, not to mention speaking and writing ones own language. Life is life and i hope that we can make the best of it where ever we live, but i think we stand a better chance in our own country with the support of friends and family, something our 4 year daughter will make the most of. PLEASE tell me that Notts isn' t that bad. Sometimes thanks to our beloved media you start to believe that its not even safe to go out in the day. Here they dont print how its or not has the case may be, they wouldn't want to scare the tourists away. So we live in a little pretend bubble. Bloody hell, sorry have waffled on. Its great the english language, just need to improve my english.!!!!!! Tracey xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
  13. Happy Birthday

    You are too sweet. xx
  14. Happy Birthday

    Thanks guys, a little late, only just saw your messages. B) Had a great time until my 4 year old daughter asked how old i was, when i told her that i was 34, she replied "gosh mummy you must be very tired", kids bless um they really can pack a punch. We are on final count down to our move back to Notts. Flights booked 4th July. Hubbie has already driven back and dumped our wordly possessions at my parents house. We can't wait even if a little nervous, has been 12 years. But must say that its only after being away that hopefully one can appreciate what one had. Someone reassure me that Notts is not that bad. thanks again Tracey xxxxxxxxxxxxx
  15. All that great about Nottingham!

    Sick as a parrot (but not with bird flu) Hubbie rang me last night, he had just got back from Ilkeston Fair with my little girl. Had great pleasure in telling me how good it was especially the mushy peas and Brandy snap.UMMM! Told him he doesn't have home to come back to unless he brings me some mushy peas and dumplings!!!!! !jumping! Sad i know, but it's the little things that you miss.
