Today I want to let you in on a little secret. We are finally thinking about moving. This has been a huge decision for us. I am a Highland girl as you know and It is time to look to the future and think really hard about what we want out of life. We are considering a move to Dumfries and Galloway. I want to talk to you today about why we are considering this.
The reasons we are considering the big move
My husband is in the police force if you are a long time follower you will know this is where we met. He has been a beat cop for over 11 years. In this time he has worked in a city and has enjoyed the wonderful world of being a rural cop. Think Hamish Macbeth style here in our lovely little village. It is his wish to further his career. Unfortunately, this is not possible in our current area. So we need to look at one of the areas this could be a possibility.
I love being in the highlands but It is very far from everything. I have missed out on a lot of blogger opportunities due to my location. It is not practical to travel the length of the country to do certain campaigns. I would also like to train as a dog groomer. As I know this little side business would make me so happy. We are very aware that there has been a huge surge in house prices in the UK but we are thinking we will be looking to move next year and are hopeful things will level out by then.
Us as a couple
We are so far from our family. My inlaws are in Devon and brother and sister in law in Berkshire. We have some of our best friends in the lake district. It would be nice to be closer to all of these people. At the moment it would take us 12 hours to get to my inlaws in an emergency and this does worry me. With the whole lockdown we have all faced I think we both realise we need to be closer to the family. Yes, I know this is still far from devon but it is a lot closer than we know.
We are very into mountain biking as you may know and be so close to all the amazing trail centres in the boarders would be amazing, to say the least.
