    Silverdragon, where in Hants are you? I am from the Havant area and did my training at University of Portsmouth.
    have only been in the Portsmouth areas for just over 6 weeks originally from the Yorkshire area. Had to move to where hubby got a contract job whilst we wait for retrogression to sort itself out. Slowly getting my bearings and dragging hubby out one day over the weekends
