Close to parents for child care, far enough away from work and London so I can afford it lol

Good schools nearby. Lots of pubs :broon:

That sums it up I think.....

Rayleigh in Essex.
10 minutes from work, traffic permitting.
10 minutes from the in-laws. One of the few Essex towns low on the Chav-ometer. Quiet pubs, rowdy nightlife if required. ( Pink toothbrush!!! ..And !!!!) ... It's just home!

I'm Yorkshire born but moved all over the country with my Dads work. Career hungry power station boss. When I was 11 we settled in the Midlands. And I met my Ginger Midget at grammar Skool. And eventually married her. Can't shake her off all these years later. The persistence of Ginger. My dad stayed put for long enough for me to stay in place for me O levels. And A levels I followed in dads footsteps in the power industry and moved all over the country and indeed the world with the power industry. We decided to move back 5 years ago from S Wales. I now leisurely lecture. Mainly to 'thick as mince' graduates.

So now we live in the tiny village that time forgot that's in easy reach of Nottingham, Leicester and Derby
And Brum if we're desperate.

And we're happy. All the kids are grown up and buggered off. Which is a parental dream state.
It will be all right in the end. If it isn't all right yet, then it is not yet the end..

I live here because a) My OH and I were moving in together, b) it was near where he worked at the time and my job was more flexible so I was able to work from home without having to job hunt before moving and c) you get a lot more house for your money here than we would if we'd stayed in the Midlands.

Home to me will always be Midlands, I liked it there - it was in the middle of the country and made it feel easy to get to anywhere... Here I'm just 2 hours further away from everything! :(

We got bored of living in married quarters and the petty politics involved when I was posted to RAF Boulmer so we went out and bought a house.

It was a new build 3 bed with garage and enough room out the front to fit 5 cars, all for £44950. Been here 21 years now.

We are still here because we like it here and it is paid for now. :woohoo:

I used to live in Guidepost, Northumberland. did a mechanical apprenticeship at Ellington colliery but following its closure in 2005 I got offered a transfer to Dawmill in warwickshire so to stay in mining I had to make the move to Nuneaton. Unfortunately though it seems another move to a different part of the country is on the cards as the mining industry is just about down the pan now, so Don't know where we will be living this time next year

Cheeky git. I'm not 50.

Was mortgage free at 40 and it takes a hell of a weight off your shoulders.

Used to sit and watch the news when interest rates were changing and think OMG, beans again for another month. Now I watch and think Mehhh. ;)
