Where in the boonies have you chosen? I always enjoy a 'leaving on one's on accord' story, well done.

You'll probably be on here more than ever if you are stuck in the hills with no interesting neighbours. xx

Dumfriesshire. about as rural as it gets these days.

battle one will be internet connections but its amazing what politicians commit to in democracies!

Thanks, not entirely on our own accord but the numbers are the numbers. I'd have liked another wee crash to drop prices for another year or two first but itll have to do.

It's a smart move. you're going to blighty at the right time to fully take advantage of the post brexit industrial, financial and technological renaissance.

Best of luck with your move Shiva. Please don't be a total stranger and at least pop in when the weather is really crap in the UK to make us feel better.

Hope you and Mrs S will be very happy.
