So over the past few days we have been considering a move. I love my house, the area, the people, school, playgroup and being near town but at the same time, I just need a change.
I grew up in a small village, my Mother claims it didn’t do me any good going to a small school, however I really do beg to differ. I think growing up somewhere with so much community and having nothing but fields,and tress did me the world of good.
Granted at the time I didn’t see it like that, but now I do. I see how good it was for me growing up, to be in a place that was safe and almost cut off from everyone else.
I had freedom from the moment I could walk, to roam at my mums, build dens in the trees, play cricket and camp out at night and to explore the village without a worry. Looking back, it was bliss and its something I really want to try and give the girls.
For us there is so much to consider. I want to stay at my Doctors, have the same care and Nurse because I am comfortable and well looked after, I don’t want to loose that.
Then there is Pops. She has just started a new school, she is making friends and has strong bonds with the friends she has had since playgroup, so part of me is thinking we should stay close to town, but then 6 or 8 miles is not far and she can still see them, go over to play and have them over to us.
So its not a ‘real’ issue in a sense.
There’s so many reason to stay here, but then equally, there are the same number of reasons to go. I am really torn as to what is the best choice for us, but then I think we just need a change.
I need a change, I really do.
