About harry horsman
(Show Details...)
Bloggers PhotoHi it is time i introduced myself, I was born in Skipton Yorkshire, England, and still have a accent belonging to my birth place. in 1966 my wife Elaine and i and our two sons moved to New Zealand, where the boys were raised. then we  moved on to the city of Perth  in Western Australia.
After 45 years away we both decided to have a move back to the yorkshire dales where we were raised. leaving our children and grandchildren in what i consider the best places on the planet. (NZ-OZ)
Our reason for the move back to the uk was to be able to discover our back yard so to speak, and we have a desire to go to europe, especially scandinavia and germany.
 I would like to say how much i'm enjoying my trip here on soup, and really loved the poems posted, my bigest problem being time, i always seem to be catching up, being able only to spend two to three days on here, even then with limited hours, so please forgive me if my comments seem later than most.  I also love football (soccer) Newcastle United in England being my team, then music, all kinds but mainly Rock 'n' Roll, i'm  a avid record collector, especially old vinyl LP's of the Fifties. my favourite poet is W. H Davies, along with a few on soup here, I do not get a lot of time to read these days, but my favourite Author is Dennis Wheatley, also i love  the the Bronte Sisters, being raised only 10 miles from Haworth, one gets a real feel for their literature, when one visits the area.   Harry

thanks Robert, hope you are keeping well, appreciate your support

Well, at least you know what you are letting yourself in for seeing as you have lived in Perth before. Friends of mine emigrated to Perth a few years back and I am not sure that I could live in a place with low crime, beautiful weather most year round (24 C there this week, when Queensland had snow and frost). Not to mention all the lovely beaches and nature parks. I would go mad with all the options ... Enjoy your family reunion. Regards, Su [PS Both my kids now live in Skipton - a better deal for them than SA.]

You'd love perth, although once the temp hits 45 (113 for our american friends) it can get a little warm.

You are so right Andrea, the family is growing and to miss out on being apart of all that, especially after a visit, proved to be too much...

I'm in Queensland, Harry. Stop in and we'll share a Fosters...umm, I mean a 4X!
