Your roots....

A friend on face book gave me the idea for this thread, Have you always lived in the same place or have you moved around?? If you don’t live where you were born do you miss it?? I have moved a few times with parents but never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine moving half way across the country!!!! Would I ever move back no chance!!

Re: Your roots....

Born in Newport (Wales) moved to London for a few years (my job there also allowed me to travel) and then moved back to the outskirts of Newport (to buy a house, as London was way to expensive!!). Then moved to just outside Cardiff near lush mountains and a river in the back garden

Would love to move to Bath, one of my fave places

Re: Your roots....

I was born in Bedford (now a rough haven for the illegal immagrants where it seems to be the end of the escape line!)

I moved to a nice village on the outskirts with the parents at 14 and then moved onto another nice village on the othe side of Bedford with the OH!

I love travelling but I would never like to leave my roots too far behind for too long!

Re: Your roots....

Where do you live Dookie? I'd love to live by a nice beach!

I would REALLY love to live somewhere warm tho, I don't like the cold at all. I've never been to Devon but want to check it out one day. Bournemouth sounds nice too.

I'm not sure what I feel about illegal immigrants - are they more desperate than those who go through the correct channels? Or gang led types?

On the one hand you have compassion yet on the other you feel it's a step back - because many of them come with 'backwards' attitudes. :-/

I'm not sure either about illegral immigrants to be honest as to their plight and such, just don't like going to town on a Saturday and being the only one speaking English

Re: Your roots....

Was born in Coventry and my mum decided it was for the best that me, my 3 brothers and 2 sisters and my mum and dad up root's and move 150 miles to north wales.
It was quite confusing at the time as i was only 11 and had just started secondary school so obviously i did'nt want to move?
The idea of going to a new school and making new freinds was quite scary especially as i was joining a different school to my brothers!
Whan we arrived i realised how beautiful it was and how lucky i was to live in such a place.
I soon settled in and found loads of new mates some of whom have turned out to be life long mates.
Looking back now almost 20 years i understand why my mum brought us here with the crime and what not that goes with city life, especially coventry! Plus if i had'nt have moved here i would not have met the oh and had my daughter.
