    Hi when we decided to move our first thoughts were for Norfolk. Love the place, but other ties meant we came here instaed. Feel very envious though. Hope you mange to get your house/roof straight before the buyers arriveimageimage

  • My Parents moved to Spain a few years ago, now they are thinking of coming back, as they are inland and the winters there are still very cold, and summers boiling hot.  It is very difficult to grow lots of things over there, and both of them have got the full complement of 10 green fingers (unlike me who struggles with some things).

    Property over there is dead cheap at the moment, which is why they are only 'thinking' of coming back.  Trouble is my Mum is missing my little ones growing up, which is why they'd like to come back.  We've sort of got two houses in the village (one ours, one shared with my OH's sister, which was his Dad's house), plan is to move over the road, bigger house, bigger garden, and try to keep our house & rent it - so they are thinking of 'renting' it from us, so the mortgage is covered.  Think if they do, they will be on the list for an allotment very quickly, as the back garden is not very big at all.  So I might end up sharing an allotment with them, which would be nice, as I can't manage one on my own, and OH is more than useless at Gardening - cars, DIY, electrics, anything like that he's brilliant at, but give him a bare-root plant and he's not sure which end to stick in the soil!

    Hi Alan - glad you liked Wymondham - it's a nice place - just down the road from us image

    Sorry your place has suffered in the bad weather - we've got a light dusting here - not nice but nothing like some people are having to cope with.  Good luck with selling it  image
