TICK TOCK, TICK TOCK……..
If you’ve ever read our ‘About Us’ page, you should already know we’ve moved from North Wales to Liverpool late last year in hopes for a fresh start.
At first things were going great. It was the first time I’ve actually moved anywhere out of Wales but things have definitely declined recently. Work for my partner had fallen through so he hasn’t been able to get into the job he wants. As well as not having any friends or family close by, it hasn’t helped our situation either.
The house is lovely, we love the house, but that’s probably the only thing right now that we like about living here. There isn’t much locally within walking distance other than a park, shop and a school.
Luckily the school is only 5 minutes away – makes it easier for me to hurl the kids into school and run away!
Unless you get a train into the city (with 2 prams and 2 kids, could you imagine the hassle?), there isn’t much excitement. There’s plenty more I could say about why I don’t enjoy living here, but you can probably figure it out for yourselves.
Wales is beautiful – there’s definitely more to do with the children without needing to travel around so much. The views are spectacular, it’s very peaceful, and they host many events during the year. If you’d like to learn more about Wales and are keen to visit, take a look at the Visit Wales website.
With this all in mind we realised that moving away wasn’t the best decision for us all but at least we took a leap of faith and gave it a good try (rather take a chance and know what it’s actually like than wonder what if…).
Me and Liam have had multiple discussions about it and have decided to move back to our hometown (the kids are excited too – less bullying, get to see their old friends, spend more time with family and are able to visit the beach over the Summer holidays).
You don’t realise how much you can miss a place until you move away – it can be easily taken for granted, but if we ever think about moving away again in the future, we’ll know how we felt and truly think about what we’re actually leaving behind.
We have found a place to move to – it’s very exciting! It does have its pros and cons, but every place will anyhow- somethings we can live with. We just want to go back home!
The children will get to see their granddad more often and it will give us chance to do more family activities. Liam and I can also pave the way for our date nights to spend together again (a girl must acquire a dress to boast her voluptuous booty to her partner once in a while).
Waiting to move is torture! If we could up and leave right now, we would but we have to abide by a system and accumulate the money prior to the move.
I’m not really looking forward to the packing, loading and unpacking again, and there’s much to sort out, but I’ve realised from this entire experience that being close to friends and family makes life much more joyful.
We are currently waiting to hear back about our new property, but until then we are aligned on a runway ready to take off. It couldn’t come any quicker if we forced it to.
For now, we will keep you all updated on our moving day and hope to include you all as we voyage back home!
