About Scout
Hmmm. What to say about yourself in a few short paragraphs? Well, let's see. I'm currently living in Texas (howdy, y'all!) and I've been here for about eighteen months. Prior to that I was living in the UK. United Kingdom. England. You know? Yeah, I was over there for about 15 years. I'd moved there and pretty much settled there. Well, until my husband worked out how much house we could buy for the amount of equity we had in our mortgage over there. That and with the mess the European economy turned into with the latest stock market crash, it seemed prudent to move back here.

So, last December I gave birth to my two lovely babies. Yes, I have twins. The firstborn is a boy and the second is a girl. They've just gone six months old and both of them are trying out bearing weight on their little yeah. I've got hellish visions of them both running around getting into everything already.

If I'm on and I don't respond straight away? Odds are I've got my hands full with one twin or the other. The moments when they both manage to nap at the same time are bliss for me.

Oh, yeah. I am a stay-at-home mum; but prior to that I worked as a DTPer among other things and I like to keep my hand in with graphics and drawing. (I just recently managed to get a scanner again. One of the heartbreaking things about moving back here was the fact I had to give up nearly all my electrical goods. True story.)

RE: About Scout
Eh, I didn't lose my gaming rig. You can swap the power cords on those and your monitors without the thing blowing up. I did lose my printer/scanner a lot of my kitchen gadgets, my vacuum cleaner -- stuff like that. Over the last year and a half I've slowly been reacquiring it all.

Rushing to find the right house to buy, knowing everything you own is turning up on a shipping container in about 6 weeks, was fun.

Twins are....challenging, but rewarding as well. It's been a bit of a steep learning curve for me, considering they're my first kids.

RE: About Scout
We had to keep adapters on hand for my mom's electronics that my uncle got her. (My mom's family lives in Ireland)

But I know the pain of electronics that don't transfer countries.

RE: About Scout
Yeah, I had a converter for my family when they came to visit me in the UK. Doesn't *quite* work the other way though. Things just don't get enough juice.

We were looking to settle here long term, so it just made sense to buy new table lamps, etc.
