Something to share of my life in Scotland with my husband who was born and raised in England. Life is harder and I will say it takes longer to get ahead in the UK. My husband had a very good job as an engineer but lived with a coal fire for twelve years. That was difficult with some rooms cold all the time you always felt things just werent right. Came home to appreciate things here with eyes that saw all differently. Jobs are tight as well as money. I saw people very conservative and less apt to spend as easily in the UK. Many differences but to describe Scotland would be the land of lovliness. I miss my house but I dont miss being as poor as I was. A shame really look at that house I do miss it! My house was in a wee villiage named Tarves outside of Aberdeen.
