The Good Life

So, me and my better half are thinking of selling up and moving into a rural setting.

We quite fancy village life. We may have to wait until the pandemic is over though.

Been looking at East Staffs, South Derbyshire or East Leicestershire. Nothing too big as we don't need it. Plenty about!

I live right on the Southern tip of Brum. Literally a 5 minute walk into green belt area. Opposite Birmingham City training ground. Super will know where it is and my local.

Would like to live off land where possible. Mrs may have to commute in several times a week so that needs thinking about. I am thinking of a return to NHS in local area if we find something.

I would have thought that explained itself.

Most viewing are online. Can't really get a good feel for a neighborhood via a video. Travelling to look at property out of locality is illegal so it will have to wait.

Will do mate.

Hope to have a goat, greenhouse and a large vegetable plot.

That huge drive for 4 motors at the front of my current house is nice but wasted space. I could be growing lettuces! 

I'd probably get a rooster to keep the neighbours on their toes.......

sold one of my prized hens that bred champions for £600 once. a cousin of mine who is a well known breeder around europe has sold cock birds for over £2k before. they sell for crazy money. 

They do. Perhaps that could be a line of income for me in the countryside? 🤔
