Last weekend we put our main UK house on the market for sale.
We are planning a complete change in day-to-day life. We will split our time between our other UK house and our newly-refurbished house in France . . .
and will spend our time renovating the new property we are just about to complete on in France
It will be 20 years this August that we moved to our current house. Though there are many happy memories associated with it, it seems that there is very little that is really holding us to the area any more.
For me, the biggest wrench will be to never be able to have a concerted period of time fishing the Thames at Duxford, like I did in 2012. I have tentative plans for one last campaign during July and August when my hay fever has hopefully cleared up. I had always thought I would be still fishing at Duxford when I was 75 years old - not stopping when I was 51.
For Wife, she will miss the seasonal changes associated with the birds that come to our garden
But these should be compensated for by our new adventures - or so we hope.
