    It's my daughter's, it's the card that covers the tables in her art class, she started with a ruler and some paints freehanding the pier. It's still got all the masking tape on it. Her art tutor cut it out I think it's brilliant for a ten year old :p

    Must be nice to put her pictures on the wall because you actually like them, as opposed to because she's your daughter :p

    Moved here in October 2017 from Cumbria UK, thanks, shame we're only renting, this is a 1 bed house we're living in (me and wife), and if we wanted to buy it, it'd cost us about $500k (£250k) :eek:

    That view though. Worth it! Pay that much where I am and you'll be in a studio flat looking at some takeaway's bins.

    I doubt you'd get that view in the UK for £250k! Are you enjoying it over there? I've always wanted to emigrate to Australia or NZ.

    I don't. Plenty of properties up here with views to rival that for similar costs.

    Yeah...no. The usage was not correct.

    And you say that like it's a bad thing? Last time I checked it's part of the UK which was the qualifier. Why live in a hovel darn sarth when you can have something beautiful up here for the same price.

    It is correct.

    I think it's good thing, you just seem oddly annoyed? Must be due to being Northern :D

    Fwiw I'm from Glasgow and imagine you can get nice houses in Northumberland for that kinda money.

    Apt would be being an estate agent, not living in this here desolate wasteland where houses with a view other than the bins behind a takeaway can be had for the price of a 1 bed studio in Dagenham!

    As it happens I grew up in London and moved up here as a teen. Travelled there at least once a week from Newcastle until last year for consultancy work as they literally couldn't pay me to live there!

    Not the best views! It's crap. And a flat.

    And the semi for 250...you can't seriously be comparing this:

    With:


    But your last link with the castle view is certainly on the right track! Cheap too.

    Yes, loving it, not in a hurry to get back to UK, good job i've got residency now, and a business to run! Only thing i'm not loving is the cost of property to buy, to be honest, i've probably underguesstimated the value of the house i'm in, it'll probably be closer to $600/$650k. Which even with a business which is doing fairly well for it's first year, we still couldn't afford to buy.
