When we were moving we decided to go to a village - only lived in largish towns before .When we sold house we looked around at our short listed villages and at some properties and then thought - no not for us - so we came up with here, cross between large village/small town with good transport routes and things to do, places to go to in evening should we wish. Don't regret it .Like you Jo I often wonder how the large town/city types manage once the country dream becomes a reality .
Tree still up!!
They are saying we, here, may have snow,
We rid ourselves of surplus stuff on free cycle, and when we moved here used Gumtree for extra furniture with great success
