Have your say
The pick of this month’s musings
It’s a funny feeling for me when the magazine lands every month. Excitement at the prospect of having some new, interesting reading material, properties to look at and the puzzles to keep my mind busy but also huge disappointment and frustration that I’m still residing in cold, rainy England when others are following their dreams. What is the problem? I hear you ask, well… it’s not location, as I know where I want to be (Agde); it’s not finance as we have equity in our UK home. It’s all the other ‘smaller’ issues. My children are still young so would need a good school; what is the university situation? Can they learn to drive (I’ve never seen a learner on the road)? I would want somewhere I can meet like-minded people and my husband wouldn’t know where to start when it comes to job-searching. By the time I’ve stressed about all these things I’ve totally given up on the dream. So, what should I do? My husband’s solution is to wait until the children finish school in 10 years however, this prospect makes me feel ridiculously sad. I wonder if any other readers feel this way? I wonder if I’ll ever get to live ‘ la belle vie’.
