My long-time dream is coming true at last: sometime next spring this ageing couple will be moving into a paradise, our new home in the country. A whole new lifestyle is waiting for us with a red wooden house to live in, potatoes and flowers to grow and wood to chop! Who knows, there might be a couple of horses to look after one day…

Sure, we have been quite happy where we are now, this suburban area is where I have lived most of my life, and where our children were born and raised. But my dearest childhood memories are from the country and I have always said that one day I’ll go back. Now the time has come to move on and fulfil that dream!
