    Thread: Introduction

    1. #1


      Hey there!

      I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right place or not, however if I'm not, mods, please feel free to move me :)

      A little about myself.

      My name's Aly (Alyson if people are cross with me!) and I'm initially from London. My first move was in 2004 where the company I work for decided to move me, my then husband and 5 year old twins to Denmark. I loved it there! Unfortunately it was short lived as almost exactly a year later, the company decided to move us again - this time to Germany where we have been ever since. During all of this, I divorced my ex and started seeing my now current husband. We have since had a child together.

      I think we're all pretty sick of Germany now and are looking for a way out. Unfortunately the job market at this time isn't great, but my husband is still optimistic :) I have no idea what the future holds or where this path will take us, but know that it's likely to be another adventure :)

      I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone!
