Movin’ On

Just this morning I took a big long look around I’ve lived it up and loved it up And done it in this town Life goes on Look like it’s time For moving on

Nearly time for us to be leaving this beautiful town. We wrote some deeper thoughts on our family blog over at plentyofroom.org, but I thought I’d leave you with some BB King, and a nice photo I took of the windmill in town…

River Witham (near Boston) A new land, a strange land: our home.

This was a reflection on our first year in Boston, Lincolnshire. For some reason, I failed to publish it, back when I wrote it, so its almost a year out of date already!

When we first arrived in Boston, we found ourselves in a wonderfully fresh situation: a new start, a new home, a new career direction, new friends; a new horizon.

One month in Boston

Last month, we took a big step as a family. We moved from our familiar, friendly home in Yorkshire over to the barren flatlands of Eastern Lincolnshire. In doing so, we said goodbye to 8 years of friends, and hello to convenient beacheswidespread obesity, and owning another house that needs every single room done up before we will be able to relax!

Take a tour through our first month here with the photos below…

A few nights ago, we said goodbye to some great friends, Joe & Lois, on their way to live forever(ish) in Zimbabwe. This, on the same day that the senior partner at my practice retired, and my wife and I decided to move to Boston in 2 months.

I’ve been feeling a tremendous amount of emotion, as if something tangible has been torn from me; my brain is looking into the future, and feeling a loss that hasn’t even happened yet.
