Chatting at work today and it came to light that of the 5 of us, 3 still live in the same town as they were born in.

I moved a lot as a child and (having used a distance calculator) have worked out I live 445miles from where I was born.

This is the one I used if you're interested in working your's out.

Close enough that I can travel easily but too far for my parents to pop in unannounced grin

DH 75miles

Me 107 miles

I thought DD1 would be further... There's the North sea and other countries in the way! (North Germany)
