You may have seen recently that we are moving house. This move will mean that we are closer to Alice’s school and we will be able to walk there every day.
Now I wouldn’t say that we are going to be ‘out in the sticks’, but we are moving to a village where life will be quieter. Andy only said yesterday as we were getting out of the car and an ambulance when racing up the hill, that we won’t have that for much longer.
I’ve never lived in a village before, unlike Andy who grew up in one, and I am looking forward to the change of life that it will bring us. The woodland walks right on our doorstep, the park that we can walk to, the village post office where I can pop and get a pint of milk when we run out. All these things make me happy that we decided to make this move for our family.
There is so much to consider when moving home, does the area have gas, electricity or oil. Something that I just took for granted that all houses would have. But my parents in law live in a village and they have an LPG Gas tank, it is buried under the ground so you don’t see it. But I was not even aware that this is something they had, as it opened my eyes when we were looking to move to a village. Thankfully we won’t be needing this, but these are the things that you need to look for when buying a home.
And there are going to be things that I will miss when we move. Not having the retail park ten minutes from our house where I can pop for a coffee and do a bit of shopping. But its ok as there is always online shopping and I now have the perfect excuse to buy a coffee machine. Plus the house has a built in wifi box, which is what every blogger wants to hear…
As we get closer to moving day I get more and more excited about it. I adore the house we are moving too and I am excited about the new life that we will have.
