I've been a 'soft southerner' for all my life. Born in St. Mary's hospital Paddington, living my early years in Harlesden in West London, then moving out to the suburbs of Greater London. This time is now coming to an end. Our family are moving North.
Specifically, to the North West... Stockport to be exact.
We have sold our house, bought a new one, and are now in the process of packing and clearing out all the shite we have accumulated over the years. This in itself is a massive job. Those of you who have bought a house know that this is one of the most stressful things you can do in your life, and this is the third time we've done it. However, there is a big difference between relocating within the same town, to moving over 200 miles up the country!
We have found a fantastic school for Jake up there, and he's really looking forward to our new adventure. My employer has an office fairly locally, and are allowing me the flexibilty to work there, so that's a big help.
And so, for the next couple of weeks, I'll keep you up to date with what's going on, how the whole move is going etc. I've been sitting on this knowledge for a while now, and it's been hard not sharing it with you all, but I have my reasons(!)
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
