Thanks everyone for their well wishes but I have to say, you’re all not wishing hard enough as this has definitely been a nightmare move! Almost comparable to the move to France…which for some reason seems like a breeze compared to this one (Hubs says that I have a short memory!).
I have lots of gory details to share but not enough ££ to pay for the time to share it all at the Internet café. We’re currently living out of our backpacks and in various B&Bs in the Surrey countryside, which is not as exotic as I would like it to be.
I also have to say that for some reason, I can’t understand about 60% of what people say to me! I keep having to ask people to repeat themselves. Over the phone, even repeating doesn’t help! Some of the times, I’m not even sure that people are speaking English to me.
I think I might need “British English as a foreign language” classes.
