Introductions, if I may?

Good afternoon

I thought I might take this opportunity to re-introduce myself, as well as slip into my more pompous typing, although have no idea how that started.

Anywho, I'm ismarah and we spoke ages ago about one of your posts, about the death of your ex and some more less morbid stuff.

I am a fellow immigrant in UK, met my other half also online, and he is also on h2g2. Moreover, he moved to my country to be with me, and then we moved together to the UK to be together.

So I thought that since you and I have lots and lots in common, you might want to have a friendly voice in the wilderness. I realise you have lots of online friends, but not all/any of them have emigrated, plus you know, English people are just as weird as other people.

Anyways, if you want a word, either on yahoo, msn or here, just post and I'll send you my contact deets.

Welcome to the UK - I hope that your move will be everything you hoped for.

Hi Maelia

I hope you're settling in ok and that you're "enjoying" a scottish winter. Although to be fair, I don't know where in the US you're from and don't know how fierce winters you're used to - anytime I complain about being cold here, I get yelled at that as I'm Icelandic, I should be nice and snuggly. smiley - brr

Anyhow, just thought I'd say hi again and then mosey on back again...
am on msn if you're lonely, although that's under my 'real' name from when I lived in Iceland - kamilla at skima dot is smiley - geek

Update as to things in common - am finally making an 'onest man of DancingTree - we've set the date for August 6th, 2005. Turns out me and fatKelli are getting married the same day, half an hour and thousand miles apart small (hootoo) world eh? smiley - laugh

Hello smiley - smiley
I've not been keeping up with hootoo lately, so i'm glad I noticed your post less than a week after you made it smiley - winkeye

Congrats on honesty-making smiley - winkeye. That is quite the coincidence, have to say.

I'm from Idaho, so it's getting to the point at which the weather is more mellow here. Which is nice, I just hope that because I'm not right on the coast that we'll be able to avoid the wind. The wind is what makes any winter weather unbearable for me. We haven't had snow here yet, and everyone seems to *insist* that Scotland gets snow..I'm not holding my breath. As you can probably relate to, even if they get a whole inch, that's a drop in the bucket compared to the yards of the stuff I'm accustomed to. smiley - smiley

Anyway, thanks for stopping by. smiley - cheers

Dear Haylle

Sorry to be reviving an old thread (yet again) smiley - tardis
I'm not very good at keeping in touch with people, so I think I may take the liberty of adding you to my friends list.

As it is, I've completely missed your posts in your journal, so had no idea you had had that hard a time in Scotland. I hope you're now stabilising and can see the daylight. It was strange to read your posts and then all the very good advice from all your friends and wellwishers because so many have been through similar things and nobody ever publicises these things. So one is left thinking one is all alone in ones experiences. I know I felt like that. Then, stupidly, I feel like I'm not unique and special enough and that I'm just run of the mill smiley - laugh Silly bird me!

Anyhow, you mentioned last time that you were not entirely believing in the whole snow phenomena in Scotland - I think you may have been proven wrong there - it does snow! Not down south where we are much though. I've turned into a very worried sort when I go to visit Iceland, I always worry that I'll be frozen with cold and thus shame myself and my nation. As if living abroad is making me soft. A bitch like me could never go soft, I should know that, but I worry smiley - biggrin.

So, what do you find you like about Scotland? I loved it when I was there for a visit, it made me feel very much at home. I'm not sure I can say that about England or Hampshire - too many trees and not enough mountains. I'm getting used to it though, after all, have been here almost 3 years now. I would say from my point of view though about being here is that I miss having my friends and that I feel lonely. Am working on getting pets though, have almost bowed DT into submission on that one. Stay tuned for endless posts about the antics of the ferrets or the puppy. Whatever, as long as it's furrier than DT smiley - run

take care
