Atlanta to County Durham (Soon to be at least)
« on: April 12, 2018, 04:25:11 PM »
Hi!  I love this forum and I am so grateful to have found it.  I am in the middle of awaiting the settlement visa (about 40 business days in).  I've posted a few times on the immigration threads but thought I would properly introduce myself!  Just a bit about myself and my family...My husband is a Brit from Leicestershire originally but he currently lives in County Durham (small village outside Durham).  He has two sons from a previous relationship.  We met in late 2016 and married fairly quickly in Greece in August 2017.  I have a daughter who is in her first year at college in New Hampshire (being away from her will be a killer!!).

The past few months have been trying as we await the visa.  Luckily my husband has been really patient dealing with all the frustrations of living apart.   :-[
I have sold my house, my possessions have all been shipped and my dogs have even moved over.  I know it will happen but feels like it is just dragging on!

Is there anyone on the forum in the Northeast?  I feel like I see a of of South Coast and London on here!

Welcome to the site. I grew up in a small town not far from Durham City, and now live in the NE in a small town just south of Middlesbrough, after spending 29 years in Texas and Louisiana.

I also lived in Leicestershire for over 5 years.

Thank you!  I’m just so ready to be settled. Texas and Louisiana are slightly different from the the north east!
