Not the Jimmy brown song tho.

After waiting 20 months I got my visa at the end of November. Obviously over the moon to be reunited with the missus, but takes a bit of getting used to.

Love. Massive hoose. Cheap petrol. Nice weather. Getting my hole again! Getting into US sports.

Hate. Nae good bacon here. Tea just isnae the same. No chance of seeing The Cabbage any time soon. TV is shite over here (8 mins of TV, 5 mins of ads - fucks THAT aw aboot?). All my family and friends are 5 hours ahead, so unless I pre arrange it, it's tough to properly catch up....can get pretty lonely.

All in all I'd say a 6 and a half out of ten. Should get better next year - hopefully

You can see the Hibs on Hibs TV, and that’s just about the same as the rest of us for quite a while.
Some pics might have been better to get your point across though, not necessarily of the house.

I'm glad to see the back of you to be honest! :3:

I did five years in Asia, it does take getting used to. You will find a place that sells British food and tea, maybe the bounces resident septics can help?

Based in North Carolina, just outside Jacksonville - on the coast.

I bought Yorkshire tea bags, but they were $9 for 80! Found a Scottish shop online but it's too expensive. Maybe every now and again I'll order from there as they do back bacon, but not all the time.

Chinese restaurants here are indeed pish, going to see if the Chinese supermarkets have decent ingredients.

My mum is sending a care package over, some decent chocolate and crisps...that'll hold me!

At least I can get hp sauce!

I've been in the states for over 20 years now.
I used to miss a lot of the food from home but that dwindles.
We have a British Shop nearby that I can get Sausages & real Bacon & even Haggis so I indulge now and again.
As has been said, Chinese food is shite here. Havent found a good yin yet, but there are some decent Indian restaurants in ATL. Took me a while to find them. The biggest miss is Fish n Chips, taken to making my own now using a Ramsey recipe. surprisingly brawsome.
You are not that far away from ATL so gies a holler if you are ever heading this way.

Actually have made tattie scones over here. Not saying they were as good as the real thing but they were decent!

Ordered the bacon along with haggis bites and scotch pies. They were good,but not worth the price.

I actually have flown into ATL a few times. Jacksonville Airport is small and only services Atlanta and Charlotte.

When I flew back a few months ago my missus said to me "have a chippy for me "

Amazing what you miss. Can you send a link to the ramsay recipe?
