I was hoping you'd see this! Do you know the Battersea area, or the area where our apt. is at all? I'm afraid it looks so industrial and not very "neighborhoody" ... per Google maps, that is.

I don't really know london very well but I think battersea is ok but i think london is industrial and it isn't "neighborhoody" what I know of anyway. There will be some places like that tho.

London is great saying that its a total mix of cultures and you will like it and its certainly a lot warmer than where i am lol

If you are going to work in Manchester that is much more friendly but colder lol

I don't think I"d be going to Manchester, but just might do some remote (at-home) work for a client there.

 

I know the actual office where Paul is working is closer to Wimbledon ... actually, New Malden, I think that's where the office is.

I hear wimbledon is ok - there are good and bad places where ever you live in the world. You will like it tho - I like London but its a lot busier than where i am and if you ever get that cheesed off contact me and i'll try and get down there lol

 

If you get time off tho try and explore especially scotland its amazing.

Oh I know there are bad places everywhere, but since I get to pick where we live - I'd love to pick one that wasn't bad! lol

Per Google Maps (Street View) it looks pretty industrial right around the apt. building, but if you go a few blocks in either direction, it gets better. We may send our co-worker over there to check it out in person. I'll feel better if someoen I trust gives it the thumbs up first!

I can totally understand your initial dilemma but now that it's pretty much happening, I am so excited for you!!! There is so much opportunity for you, I wouldn't want you to regret not going.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
