I live a mile from where I was born. When I married lived in Surrey but always felt homesick. Silly really but just could not settle. Have lived in present house for 47 years and have never wanted to move. In the suburbs, but a 5 minute drive or 30 minute walk and you have open spaces, woodland and, best of all, the place I spent most of my Summer holidays when a child, paddling in the stream or swinging on a tyre hanging from a tree. Never hankered to go abroad, much to the amazement of anyone I mention it to. Furthest I have ever been is Land's End. I don't mind if people think we odd or tell me how much I am/have missed as I don't feel I have missed a thing.
a place to lt off steam about all the irritating and/or stupid ideas you have come across latelyJump to latest post
