Well that happened quickly, one minute we were talking about what accompaniments and wine we were going to have with the Christmas Turkey, and the next minute we have a FOR SALE sign up and have already had our first viewing!



FOR SALE, eek!

We spent the last few weeks (and months) doing all the things you are supposed to when you move home; emptying the house of all the clutter that comes from living somewhere for 16 years, painting, decorating and generally sprucing the place up a bit.  Who knew kitchen lights could get so grimy?

We have been very happy living in and around Romsey for the past 20 years, it is a quintessential English market town where you go to the bakers for your bread, butchers for your meat, loll around with a coffee or glass of wine, that kind of thing.  It has a great community feel, lots of events, a lovely park, and a beautiful 10th century Abbey, it is on the doorstep of the New Forest and the beautiful Test Way.  There is a lot to recommend it.

But our future lies elsewhere, and we can’t wait to head west.
