I've just bumped Scotland ahead. Somehow I'd missed voting before. But I feel a wee bit dishonest because although Scotland is my home, I spend more time away from it.

bumped up again.
I live about 10 miles outside Glasgow.Which is great because I dont need to live in the city but its only a 10 minute drive.
I love Scotland and when I go away I am always desperate to come home.

I live in Germany now permanently, but I am in fact an Australian and remain an Australian citizen.

As for why Germany, it was because on the map it looked bloody close to Sweden, which it turned out not to be, but by then it was too late.

Interesting that there are three in Europe. I count Gurdur and Jaybird - who's the third? There is definitely at least four from Wales now and two from Northern Ireland.

Essex girl.
Then York, then London, then York again, far north of Scotland (Elgin), back to York, and now Gloucester.

So you'll be happy your lads lifted the cup yesterday? :clap:

And Felicia - you really have got around, haven't you! What took you to Elgin?

This is an odd one, Lewist. My ex-husband got the job of Director of Music at a certain famous school up there. It didn's last long (we were fish out of water with the ethos of the place) but I did acquire a deep and abiding love for Scotland and so envy you living in Strathspey!

A Texan until age 28, then a New Yorker (City, that is), and back to Texan at age 32 to present (33). I carry both nationalities around with me in a box.

If the government would have me, I'd move to the UK, but I don't possess any skills they want. Had a blast on a trip from London to York to Edinburgh to Salisbury and back in '99, and haven't quite fallen out of love with the island. Edinburgh would be great, if I could buy enough heavy waterproof coats...
