I've just worked out that I've spent 21 years of my life in England, 3 in Wales, 5 in Scotland, and 13 in Ireland, 11 in Germany, 5 in France, 3 in Hong Kong, and some periods in Nepal and Brunei in my 63 years. During this time I've moved house 23 times.Timoth wrote: ↑Wed Jun 10, 2020 8:32 pmPerhaps I might give the answer differently? I have only lived in England for a total of 25 of my nearly 73 years. Given some of the stuff I have read on this forum I think that was too many years. Admittedly 10 years were out of loyalty, not choice, working at a UK University, a right shithouse!
In order of preference I'd go for
England would be next to last but one rung above N Ireland.
And where would I live given a free choice? Probably Southern Ireland. (Edit: Specifically Cork, Waterford or Westmeath)
