    It's nice here.

    We live opposite the Stagecoach bus depot, so we get to watch all the buses doing handbrake turns into it.

    It's cool.
    Live in the town centre almost. I can get home from anywhere without the biggest difficulties at any time of day.

    The countryside is nice for a weekend. More than that and I start pulling my hair out.

    Yeah that is cool

    Milton keynes isn't like any other city i know tho. The centre is just a big shopping centre and the majority of the bars are all concentrated around a small area and that's pretty much all there is in the way of nightlife.

    The small towns that are around in MK are cool and have good pubs and stuff, but they are just pubs and they close at 11. Then you have to get a taxi to the centre! There's nothing different.

    That sounds exactly like Coventry, not that I'm much interested in nightlife at 2.30 a.m.... think those days are a bit behind me. If I go out I usually end up at the casino, so I don't go into town at all.

    probably for the best. there are some right characters wandering around at that time. luckily i always have quite the protection racket.

    and leeds is ok. lot of twats, but cause it's a big city, there's always something to do.

    You have been mis-informed. Unless 50 miles really does make that much difference. Its meant to be sunny all of next week.:p

    Where i live is alright i guess. Theres a bus into Leicester center every 10 minutes, and one into Loughborough every 10 minutes, which is great if you can't drive like myself.
    10 minutes in one direction is the town center for shopping and all that jazz and 10 minutes in the other direction your like in the middle of nowhere, all fields and country parks and that, North Leicestershire where i live, is oh so excitingly, home to the National Forest.

    Bad things: I don't think it is possible to be further away from the sea at just about any other point in England.

    I live right by the main train station, i live in a like central part of worthing (the town where i live) so i can walk to places like town, the cannabis cafe, the train station, the beach and my mates house really quickly because i live so close to everything.

    its weird though, im like in the centre of things, and the part of town where i live is quite quiet and i live in quite a largish house so its not bad.

    and because of where i live, i love it, everythings so very easily accessable from where i live. Its great.

    and because i live so close worthings main train station (literally a 2 minute walk) getting to brighton is the easiest thing in the world.

    also worthings cool because we have dave benson phillips living in it! (ollolol) (ive actually walked past him in the streets a fair few times)

    (and if you dont know who he is, he was the presenter on get your own back!)

    I live in what is possibly the dullest village that has never existed. Most of the people who live here look as if they're half dead.

    Newcastle-under-Lyme? It's a wonderful place!

    But we have outcakes, and no one else does, so I can't complain.

    Mmmmm

    Well it often takes me about an hour to drive that 10 mile bit home from work everyday at rushhour, but besides that I can't complain.

    When I'm at home in Manchester (ish) its great I'm 20minutes away from Manchester, Wigan, bolton and Warrington and half an hour away from Liverpool. Also there is 3 or 4 local places I can go to which all have clubs that are open till 2am and small shopping places. The worse thing is the lack of public transport, we only have buses every half hour or an hour, but luckily i drive. When I'm at uni in Lincoln everything is in walking distance but its so quiet and there is nothing near it that is worth going to, such a dull city!!

    Sainsbury's in Reading has those. Start complaining.

    Reading - the town that applies for city status, fails and then calls itself a city anyway. Lots of roundabouts, roadworks and pubs.

    Braintree....erm. Well. I live like half hour + walk from anywhere interesting (which is not very much). Town - half an hour. Train station (which is not-quite-in-town) - half an hour. Freeport - an hour.

    This is, of course, all dependent on walking speed. I'd get the bus, but I prefer walking, and the bus is guaranteed to be like half an hour late if you wait for it, and then go right past you like 5 minutes after you set off if you walk.

    Such is life.

    Yes, most Sainsbury's I've been to have them, but just like Cornish pasties outside Cornwall, they just aren't the same, or so I'm told.

    Also, I bet you aren't always ten minutes away from an outcake shop in Reading and erm....

    The one thing that is actually good around here, and you ruin it.
