She's coming back! I just had an email from her. Sounds like she's thriving in NL.

Hi folks, it"s nice to be back.

What have I been doing since I left GWD?

Moved house to a peaceful little village.

Broke my hip in Gambia of all places where there is no surgery and the only X-ray machine we tracked down was so antiquated that the photo was useless. But got sorted out upon my return and now have an artificial hip which is brilliant, I can walk, swim, cycle and have sex again like everyone else.

In November this year we celebrated the ten year anniversary of our first meeting. We went to a romantic hotel in the Veluwe and had a lovely time. Then I went to Cuba which was wonderful (Jan doesn't travel so he stayed at home with our 3 cats).

Also in November I took Dutch citizenship and now have to pay the British government 321 pounds for the privilege of resigning my British citizenship.

So how are you all and what have you been doing?

By the way, I saw a post from a guest called Rosie. It wasn't me I assure you in case he/she posted anything controversial.

The Geordie tribe is gathering once again. Next up, Mr Ed?

[I count Snotty as an honorary Geordie. So that's 4 of us.]

Yeah we are considering becoming German citizens.

The test looks a piece of pies. I just can't see myself wearing chequered shirts, camp david and listening to schlager Huh??

I didn't have to do the test in Holland. Easy peasy, took the special ruling for long term immigrants. My daughter is thinking of doing it too.

She is both German and British and will have to give up both if she applies for Dutch citizenship. We never did the schlager thing when we lived in Berlin.
