Would You Move From Your Home-town?

Many times, I've had the discussion with my husband, you know, if we were lucky enough to ever come in to a lot of money or, win the Lottery (fingers crossed), would we stay put where we know people or would we move away to somewhere different. 

And, to be honest, it's such a hard thing to decide. 

I love living in Yorkshire, it is my home, the place I was born and grew up. I love the accent, the people, the fact that all my family live close by, but then, on the flip side, there are also many other places I would love to live too. 

Somewhere with a lot of land for the kids to run around to their hearts content, a place to plant herbs and vegetables so that the boys could grow up learning about sustainable foods and how to maintain them. I would just love somewhere that has a lovely homely and community feeling, somewhere that would be great for the kids to grow up.

If I had to pick, I would love to live in Scotland. I love the scenery, the gorgeous farmhouses that you see dotted around and for the fact that my granddad came from there and always mentioned how lovely it is up there. 

If you're like me then you will probably, every now and then, have a quick Google to find locations and places and dream about living there. I have even searched for properties for sale in Aberdeenshire as that is my top location, if I ever had the money. 

But then I daydream even more and wonder, would I buy a house and make it our home, or would I buy a patch of land and create our perfect place? Somewhere with a huge kitchen, a playroom for the kids, extra bedrooms for family coming over and a huge garden filled with things for the boys to play with.

I know, I know, things like this never happen to normal people like us, but a girl can dream, and it does get me wondering, would I move from my home-town!

  1. I moved away from my home town in 1982. The happiest place I ever lived was Winchester and if we won the lottery tomorrow, we'd move back there in a flash.

    I wouldn't want to while parents are still around. After, who knows?

  12. When you are living in a very good town and you like the place is very hard to move away.But if you don't like town where you was born,like in my case, then you always wish to move in another place and you are very happy when you find a town better than before.

  13. I moved 6 miles from Leeds to Wakefield when I got married and was dreadfully homesick. Stuck it for 3 years then came back to Leeds. 8 years later we emigrated to South Africa and loved it! Only came back because of family problems.
