So... I said I would give a bit of an explanation for the 7th "random thing" I posted in the post I did Saturday. I'm talking, as you will probably remember, about the fact I mentioned that we are considering moving away from this area. It's something we've been considering doing for a while now, actually. Remember all those times I mentioned how I was watching what money I was spending because we were saving for something? Well, this is what we've been saving for. Thing is, to be honest, we're more than considering doing it. We're actually planning to do it. In fact, we've been saving up the money needed for the move (as I already mentioned), decided on the location we're moving to, and have even started packing up those items we don't use that often, or don't mind not being able to use for a while (ornaments, DVDs, most of our books, etc), and have been "sort of" looking at potential places to see what's out there for when we're ready to actually move. We've got some things to sort out before we actually go and look at possible places, but we're hoping to have those things sorted some time in the next few weeks, and we're hoping to be able to be moving in the next couple of months, all being well.
We're looking for just a 1 bedroom place, because it's not essential that we have a second bedroom right now, rent will be a bit cheaper if we just go for a 1 bedroom, and where we're moving to there are plenty of places nearby for friends or family to stay if or when they're visiting. We aren't bothered if it's an upstairs place or a downstairs place, as long as it allows pets... We can't move without Kero and Gwydion!
Anyway, we're moving from South-West Wales to South-East England, to an area where I lived for a couple of years during my teens, which is only a little over an hour away from central London by train, and also near the coast.
We have quite a few reasons for deciding to move away, but they all boil down to the same thing... We feel that moving is the best thing for us.
