A few weeks ago I may have hinted that big changes were ahoy… well, since the wedding is now over and our Honeymoon has been well and truly consumed (man, it was gooood), and Nick’s notice has been handed in, I am now at liberty to divulge our news!
We are moving.
Quite the distance in fact.
Out of Sussex.
To the North of England.
Yorkshire to be exact.
It’s something we’ve always talked about.
Something we’ve always thought we’d do. Eventually.
And now the time has come to make the move; Nick has a new job in East Yorkshire!
We’re moving in with the In-Laws initially, so we have time to scout the area and look for a house to buy. Our very own house! No more renting damp houses for ludicrous amounts of money per month! Space! Our own walls to paint… or knock down! All the room for our future brood and weekend guests!
An actual garden!
We’re saying “goodbye” to the South East at the end of November, which seems to be coming around very quickly.
It’s going to be sad; barring my three years at University I’ve always lived in Sussex. I’ve got so many happy memories down here; not least our wedding a mere four weeks ago! My family live down here. A lot of my friends live down here. But it’s for the best, and the positives for moving are numerous and incredibly exciting! Plus we can come and visit (and vice versa) – it’s not like we’re moving to New Zealand!
I might have to wear a few more jumpers during winter.
I might have to give Busby secret elocution lessons at night to teach her the proper way of saying “grass” and “bath”.
might will definitely need to learn to drive.
But I can’t wait to live in such an exciting, home-grown, local-loving county!
Yorkshire Bloggers – I hope you’ll accept this Sussex-born into “Gods own country”! If you require something in return, I think Busby might turn out to be a fine cricket player in the future…
