Greetings one & all,

We are in the process (a VERY slow one, sadly) of selling up here in the UK to move to a 5acre holding in Co Galway. In the meantime we're busy selling all the trapping of materialistic life at carboots & growing quick crops.

Hopefully, before the year is out we'll be busy planting a new garden & a new life.

Will keep you informed of our progress.

MW

Welcome MuddyWitch. Hopefully it wont be too much of a harsh change for you. Are you moving from city to country? Big garden where you are moving to?

Muddy Witch,
Best of luck with the new life in Galway. I did it in the other direction a while back. I still miss the lovely people I left behind and the fact that in Ireland you can talk to anyone. Over here you gotta be introduced.

Thank-you all for your warm welcome (welcomes?).

Yes it will be a big change...but I grew up in a tiny hamlet in Nottiinghamshire so I'm well used to a quiet community where every-one is friendly, unlike city life. It'll be more of a cultureshock for Hubby: he's originally from London & only ever lived in cities!

We have about a third of an acre here, which we grow quite a lot of stuff on. We're really looking forward to having even more room for us & the hounds to play with. We will try to be as self-sufficient as possible, but the holding doesn't have any bogland so we may have to buy in peat to begin with.

As far as we can see Ireland is Europe's best kept secret...lovely people, beautifull countryside, wonderful food, what more could we need?

MW

Welcome Muddywitch! You won't regret the move. We moved back from Hertfordshire to Co. Mayo. We did it gradually over ten years, making the permanent move two years ago. We love it - look forward to tracking your move. Very Happy
