    Clearly you haven't 'surrendered', as you're still going on... The only reason I stated what you've just quoted was to outline, largely for your benefit, why I like living where I am, but it seems to have gone in one ear and out the other

    I get it, I get it! Where you live is perfect for you.
    No it's not perfect, nowhere is, but I'm very happy where I am (for reasons stated).

    But you still haven't explained why you hate 'that London' so much?
    I don't "hate London", as I've explained UMPTEEN times mate, I hate anywhere that's busy and overcrowded, and IMO, represents what's wrong with today's society, and the soulless materialistic outlook and tech-obsessed priorities of the masses. Yes, London has that, but so does any other major city today in the UK, so it's NOT just about London....

    I would've thought when I mentioned that the ideal place I'd like to live was the Isle of Skye, you'd have got *exactly* where I was coming from. I love beautiful, natural scenery (remote places) and to be WELL away from the rat race and crowded, polluted cities, as I find it stressful and prefer a much more serene and slow-paced way of life.

    I'm intrinsically a countryside and/or seaside, out in the sticks kind of guy, NOT a townie!! In that respect, I wouldn't have *chosen* to live in Wrexham either, but as stated, it ticks a number of (to me) important boxes.

    Geddit now? Or do I have to repeat myself some more before it sinks in?

    And I'm not talking about central & inner London, I'm referring to the many leafy & attractive suburbs that exist within the M25 that apparently have all the redeeming features of Wrexham you describe whilst a) not being in Wales & b) being within spitting distance of the third most visited city in the world.
    Leafy and attractive suburbs still isn't the Isle of Skye (my idyl) though, is it?

    And as nice as said leafy and attractive suburbs might be, there's still much more traffic there [the M25 and surrounding areas is a freaking nightmare in that respect], difficulty in parking anywhere, as I'm a car guy, and general overcrowding (because as you say, you're near London), 'rush hours', 'school runs', etc, than what I'm used to, plus the cost of living is much MORE expensive, so you get much LESS for your money than you do where I am, for (to me) no worthwhile gains.

    Anyway, hopefully now you're "got it", so I'd suggest that we drop the subject, Roy, and move on, hokey dokes?

    Off to bed now...

    A good bit of cod is nice.. I like it as a steak. Thick flakey cuts. Tesco do fresh ones that are excellent, and better than their haddock.
    Most chip shops sell haddock here tho, or used to.. Not sure now as I rarely imbibe.

    Yeah I like cod, but I just prefer haddock in a fish supper, as it's a thinner (but just as tasty) fish, which for me is nicer to eat under batter

    Got my uncle (who lives in Erskine) coming down from Scotland to visit my dad today, and both are popping round for lunch. so we're having hake with a caper-butter sauce and queen scallops to start, followed by veal Milanese with sautéed potatoes with sea salt & rosemary, and some fresh spinach, so should be good!

    Yeah, defo. Fortunately, none of my family got that, and yes they're looking forward to hooking up, as they haven't seen each other in about six months.

    This uncle (Franco), the youngest of my dad's two brothers, has recently turned 70 - and no, he doesn't look his age either!

    Plus, his daughter (my cousin) has just had a baby boy, so a new second cousin for me - and therefore I'll probably be up in jockland for the Christening!

    Indeed... Means I can swing by your place when I come up. If you're up for it, I'll take you out for lunch in your jalopy
