My brand new British passport arrived today. *:)* *:)* *:)* *:)*

Have to say that went shockingly quickly. It said it could be 10 weeks or over for my application to be approved when they got my documents. 3 and a half weeks later and I've got my new one.

Awesome. Been over 20 years since my last one expired. I am considering my options... :W

I am British (English). I came to Aussieland at 16. I am now... older. :P
I am contemplating a move back home since my Mum passed away and I'm now stuck up here basically all on my lonesome. I'm a Yorkshireman, dammit! :wink:

I don't feel well. :roll:
You have been very patient with me. :(
I think that more than once I have commented on the bad concept I have of how the English treat foreigners, especially people from London. :r

When we get older and we are left alone we feel safe where we were born and grew up.
The same thing happens to me. I want to go back to the town where I was born.

Have you been to England often?
Do you still have ties?
It's important to keep a thread with your origin because if not, when you go back everything has changed, including the people you knew.

I've never been back, though I still keep in touch with several friends and a number of relatives. I know it won't be the same, but I need a change anyway and it seems as good a one as any.

You are very lucky. ^O^
Once a year I go to my town and there are no friends left, they all left as well as me. :shock:
There is little family, but I have made new friends.
