Do you ever dream of having a different life? Do you ever dream of moving somewhere where you can savour each day? Somewhere people have the time to speak, where friendships can grow, where the pace of life is a little slower?
Do you ever wish you could have a few acres of land, a decent sized house where you’re not all cramped. Five bedrooms would be nice, wouldn’t they? Perhaps a range of outbuildings, an area to garden and to grow your own vegetables and maybe even a wind turbine to generate electricity? Do you ever fantasise about owning a small stables and maybe even having a horse, with acres of land in which it can run and graze? Did you ever wish your kids were at a better school and were growing up to be less anxious, less harassed and more connected with nature? Do you ever wish you lived somewhere where crime was almost unheard of, where everyone says hello to you when they see you and even drivers wave at you when they go past?
