Oh, I am DESPERATE to see New Moon when it comes out! Embarassed I know - I'm 33 years old and really should be above such things, but I loved the books and the first film. I only read them to keep up with my students' conversations, of course. *ahem*

I really want to see UP as well, as I've heard really good things about it. I have yet to find an English language cinema around here, but I'm on the prowl ...

I'm in Salento - the nearest big city is Lecce. Brindisi would also be possible, although it's a bit of a trek from here. AngloInfo hasn't made it to my area yet, although apparently they have a Puglia site planned. Yay!

Boooooooo. That's rather what I suspected. Given that we don't even appear on the national weather maps down here (seriously!), an English language cinema was probably too much to hope for. Thank you for trying, though. Very Happy

Guess I'll just have to make a trip to Roma ... Wink

I might well do that, Lizzie! Now that I know there are a load of friendly faces there it'll definitely be on my list. That is if I don't decide to disappear to South America and learn to tango or something ... Wink

Given the choice, if I am to be sincere, I would opt for South America!
But do come back to Italy when you are finished with adventuring and want to have a stale and stinted life bringing up children in near poverty and feeling undervalued....

(just joking )

Gosh, you make it sound so appealing Razz

Chin up, love. If all else fails you can always sell the children into slavery and run away to South America with me. Laughing

good one! It is always nice to know you have options, even if you have no real intentions of doing it. But on a serious note, I always have it in the back of my mind; when all else fails, I can always go home! (although now my parents are moving, and my sister and brother have already moved away, I don't really know where 'home' is anymore....gosh I am depressing myself!)

That sense of home being a place is an odd one. My flat in London is home, and yet I still talk about going 'home' to see my parents in Somerset, despite that not being the place that I grew up. (In fact, they bought it at about the same time that I bought my flat, and I'd moved out a good 5 years before that, as well as having been at boarding schools from the age of 8!)

I suppose, ultimately, 'home' is wherever the people you love are, as Hallmark as that sounds. Please excuse the sentimentality!

My parents are going to be selling the house I lived in since I was 14. Sentiments aside, it is where I have a doctor, a NHS dentist and where my friends know to contact me if all else fails. (Also 2 of my sons were born in the hospital opposite the house!).
Now my parents are in Norfolk, my brother is in High Wycombe but is moving to Newcastle, and my sister is in Windermere. So where is home? It is certainly wierd to think of Rome as home, I always try to kid myself at least that it is temporary! But if i returned to the UK where would I go????

For me, *England* is home, whether it's north, south, east or west. Here, I'll always feel like an outsider because I'm too tall, too redheaded, too English ...

I said earlier that I'd been at boarding schools from the age of 8-18. I went through quite a lot of periods of homesickness over those 10 years, but I've never felt so miserable as I did when I first moved here. That's not to say that I can't be happy here, because I can, but I don't think a foreign country will ever be home to me in the way that England is.

i have to admit that I like being different, but when u are judged day in day out, and not in a good way, it gets tiring. I don't wanna have a boring same old same old life...but I would like to feel like I could be percieved of as a person of value instead of just that English girl that sounds about 5 yrs old when she speaks ... I get so frustrated, I think of so many clever retorts...but too late, or all in English

Hehe! Yep, I know that one well. I understand much more than I can say at the moment, and I find it hard not being able to tell people exactly what I think Razz

Oh I can recount many a frustrating moment: Like the time when Mstteo's teacher shouted in my face (in front of my son who was crying) that his was a bugiardo (liar) because he said he had stomach ache and she didn't believe him. I was so furious I cried for a week 'how dare she talk to me like that! How dare she talk to my son like that! What a way to talk to a 6 year old! And what an example to set him! (u can see I am still fuming!)
Sometimes I want to say something biting or sarcastic but I just can't get it quite right, and then they look at me like I am mad (which I defo am after all these years here!)
