The weather here is just too cold! I really miss the warmness of back home but I am not so sure I can handle the heat of Jan and Feb!
As for the people, South Africans are more friendly and accepting of foreign people. I have been in Ireland for 5 years and am still struggling to make true friends, not just people that say they are your friend but then talk behind your back. Saying that not all the poeple here are bad but the general mentality of the people are they same, it has only been in the last 20 years that foreigners came to settle in Ireland.
The social system is loads better here and the government will help you financially if you can't cope. Something which I count my lucky stars is in place as being a single mother is very hard, financially and other wise.
I am hoping to come for a visit in 2012 as flights and things are so expensive!
Love George, had a friend whose parents had a farm there, not sure if they still do...
