Where I live in my lovely comfortable family home, I am constantly grateful for the space, the warmth and convenience of having a home constructed to the latest building methods available in the early 2000s! So long ago my first rented home was an attic flat in a rather run down victorian semi detached villa – the landlord lived on […]» Read more
Our house is getting towards the 20 year old mark. We moved in as it was built – oh the excitement of waiting for the developers to complete! Everything was brand new of course and as safe and modern as it needed to be at that time. Since then we’ve not felt the need to change a great deal apart […]» Read more
We are entering the most interesting phase of the brexit negotations now – our government is struggling to maintain its course through the choppy waters on all sides by moaning back bench MPs and the european bully boys demanding we do this, that or the other. It has made a lot of folk rather nervous and less likely to invest […]» Read more
I think when we grow up, if we’ve had a stable upbringing, say both parents around, a comfortable home and no violent neighbours or family disruptions, it can lead us to be a little complacant about what we want when we grow up.

I do love it when new neighbours move in – not something that has happened very often to me – and something I’m gradually getting used to.

The price of housing these days is staggering to most folk over the age of 40. We remember back to the days when we bought our first flat for £1k and then moved up through a succession of properties until reaching our forever home – the 3 or 4 bedroomed detached out in a quiet village or suburb. Today’s youngsters […]» Read more
We live in some very challenging times. This was brought home to me recently when away on a short continental break. Being amongst folk you’ve never met before and who you don’t know anything about can be exciting and invigorating. There was a really old chap and his lady wife, both in their late 80s. He had a very distinct […]» Read more
There is definitely a thing about buying houses over here that you don’t necessarily get overseas. Particularly on the european continent. I have just got back from a short trip and saw a couple of german cities – things ar exactly the same as a visit I made in the 1990s and I was so impressed with how clean and […]» Read more
This has been a most interesting few weeks for me. My neighbour told me last year that due to family circumstances it was very likely he and his nice quiet wife would have to move away, down towards where their grandchildren live. This wasn’t entirely unexpected as they have been running back and forth for a couple of years now, […]» Read more
