Back to the future


Westward ho! After much agonising and deliberation, we've decided to go west and head back to Cardiff. Our sole motivation for leaving Oxfordshire is so that, at the age of nearly 40, we might actually be able to afford to buy a house. Given that we loved the Welsh capital when we lived there prior to the move to Abingdon, have been regular visitors over the last few years and have numerous friends there of a similar age and stage of life, the choice of destination seemed like a bit of a no-brainer.

The move won't be happening until December, so we've still got a little while to get used to the idea of leaving a place we've grown increasingly fond of (despite initial resistance) - and to the prospect of a new future out west. As stressful as the next few months are likely to be, the thought of being able to frequent the likes of Chapter and Spillers again will no doubt keep me going...
