We are in the Midlands now and it's not as dreary as our London friends said it would be, it's actually topping our expectations (and they weren't low to start with). We are in a pretty town with great schools (one has to think of the sprog) and plenty of things going on. The Midlands are not a cultural desert and they are not dreary nor grey; I was pleased to notice it rains less than in London and we get more sunny spells. We have exchanged our landscaped, urban garden for a family-friendly big plot. We have two apple trees (the pic on the side shows our eating apples) and plenty of space for my pots, plants and garden paraphernalia.
