Isn't blogging wonderful,rather than blogger which has been somewhat trying in the last couple of weeks one way or another.
I spent hours being frustrated and trying with my very limited skills to sort out why my blog page which says I have to sign in and wouldn't then let me! And along comes Laura at Pretty Pix and sorts me out.(Her tip BTW is untick yourself off the box marked 'keep me signed in' on the sign in page, works immediately)
Where would we be without people, and no more so than last week on my hols.
It's no wonder I want to move down south to Devon or Cornwall. Two of my oldest friends live there, who I stayed with last week. One of my old school friends lives there, we reconnected a while back through Friends Reunited. And two of my 'up here' friends are moving down in the next few years. Not of course forgetting blogging chums, who I've also met in reality who live there. So I have a bigger network potentially there than I have where I live now.
The dilemma will come if my sister is successful in selling her house this year.She and her husband want to relocate to Anglesea in Wales. It's their log cabin I go where I go and stay by myself in. They want to go there, as it's as far for P to commute to work in Manchester as it is where they live already. Which is less than 10 minutes walk from me now.
My sister and I have always been extremely close. To the point as some of you know, that for ten years we lived as two families in one farmhouse and barn that we did up from almost derelict.
So do I think in the next couple of years, as I prepare to leave this town about my collection of friends and a ready made reasonably big support network, or do I want to be near my sis,only knowing her in a place that is known for being difficult to break into socially?
I would hate to be too far from my adored little sis, but on the other hand I would hate not to see my beloved friends on a more regular basis. I miss them so much.
I've only been able to see my friend in Cornwall once a year for the last three years, even though we do talk every week, and I would love to be able to be close enough to pop over for an evening instead of the six hour drive from here to see her.
Whichever way I go I know I'll end up driving!But it is a difficult call to make, whenever I have to make the choice.
To take my mind off pondering things so far away here are some more of my last week hols pics instead!
