Re: UK passport = pricey

Mark, I've sent you an email .

Re: UK passport = pricey

fwiw i got maternity pay ...

Re: UK passport = pricey

Thanks - I got it!

Re: UK passport = pricey

Yes, that was exactly what I was wondering. Thankfully, I've never had cause to make any sort of claim against ZUS-controlled funds, but, have now paid a huge amount of money into the kitty. It'd be a bugger, if indeed, as Dajwid says, all this money is lost .

Re: UK passport = pricey

Have you ever considered a move back to England? Even if only for a year or two to give your son some experience of life in England.

Re: UK passport = pricey

I think this would break European Union laws about mobility of workforce. Your payments would be safe from the time Poland joined the EU.

Re: UK passport = pricey

Was that to me Si?

I have thought about it, but work won't allow it now.

When he's a bit older, I'll send him to my family for the summer.

Re: UK passport = pricey

I was thinking of something like that with our kids, but perhaps adventure/activity holidays might be a better idea.
More likely in the short term is having nephews and nieces over from England to stay with us.

Re: UK passport = pricey

Yes, sorry, Mark, that was to you. The idea of a summer with family sounds a good one, as does the activity holiday suggestion. I guess it's all too easy for the offspring of people like us to lose real contact with all things UK ...

Re: UK passport = pricey

You're absolutely right. Max loves it when family come to visit. He especially likes acting as an interpreter in shops ;)

Re: UK passport = pricey



How old is Max now? Six, seven?

Planning any more?

Re: UK passport = pricey

The "English cousins" were surprised to find our kids could speak normally! Our kids were surprised at the funny Yorkshire accent!
And how could anyone just sit there in company with an MP3 on?? (An English teenager - you might have guessed)

Re: UK passport = pricey

Max is 7 1/2 and staring big boys school in September.

No others on the horizon yet.
