Well I told my DH that I agreed with him and that we should stay here.  He is thrilled and if he keeps this up I am going to have another kid soon LOL.  I haven't seen him this happy in so long.  When I first told him no he looked so sad.  Now that we are no longer guests we have to help out with the chores I was up getting the cows milked this morning.  There are 4 of them OMG that is a lot of work and my hands hurt.  I will get used to this I am sure.  They are taking me shopping for clothes and stuff for our house today and tonight I am supposed to cook supper for 15 people I have no idea what I am going to cook. (meals are served in the big main house and the families and smaller houses)    My husband is out getting the sheep out to pasture with his brothers, my FIL and nephews are out doing the same with the cattle.  There is plenty of work to do for every one.  I think I am going to make a chicken pot pie ( oh dear God please tell me I don't have to kill the poor thing by myself), Mutton stew over tatties (mashed potatoes) and Bannocks.

Are you or your husband from Scotland? Do you have the right VISA to move? Have you talked to an immigration officer?  Good luck!  It will be an adventure to say the least.

DH was born in Scotland, I was born in the UK to an English mother and a US Navy Father.  I have dual citizenship.  There is no problem with us staying here.

Oh, that's different. I tried to immigrate about 10 years ago and got stuck in customs. I didn't have the appropriate paperwork and was denied entry. Well congrats on your move!  I am a little jealous, lol.

Washington state, we both lost our jobs and we sold everything we had to survive to the point we were living with friends.  We have 2 dd's they each had a doll and DH and I had our clothes, no phones no other possessions other than pictures and wedding mementos.  My DH's family has offered us a home on their land an income and work.  They own a farm and we will be working with the rest of the family and living like they do.
