• Because it’s green there
  • To have a fire & a garden & a stone kitchen floor
  • So the chickens can roam free
  • So Orla can go to a small village school
  • & get an adorable Yorkshire accent
  • Because it snows there instead of raining
  • Because it rains there instead of being grey
  • To see the stars as night again
  • Because I do all my shopping online anyway
  • For the views
  • For the Sunday markets
  • For a new start
  • Because the city is choking us
By which I mean, we’re getting our house valued with a view to selling & moving for higher ground. Eeep!

Ooh an insider! I will defo be picking your brains at some point then – is it me or are most estate agents a different species entirely? The whole system of buying & selling houses is so slow & archaic.
The sticks, the sticks! I can’t wait to be able to say that. Where were you living before? X

Best of luck!!!!! If you need any help/advice, let me know. I have worked in an estate agency for 8 years (in HR but I see what goes on!!).
I moved to the sticks 6 years ago, you won’t look back 🙂
