    I take it that you wouldn't want a second floor abode, Tex? - we could have swapped if that was the case!

    My late mother when she was still alive used to say to me that she always wanted to live in a bungalow - a pipe dream of course, although I did ask one of the councils whether she would qualify, but they said that a two bedroom ground floor flat would have been the best they could do for both of us.

    I am probably only a decade or so away from Sheltered Housing (time flies, methinks) - I telephoned a Housing Association (not one that I am already with), and asked about this around four weeks ago and they said that I would probably have a good chance myself, although the reality of the situation would be that I would need to wait another decade at least.

    I have thought about moving myself, probably an exchange to take me to another part of the area that I live in, close to shops and the local church, or even the village a few miles out - I have had some problems where I live (a long and personal story) and I believe that moving might be a solution to it. I do understand that moving is indeed stressful (I last did so seven years ago myself), but hopefully the rewards of a new home (which is probably in a new area) can have its rewards. I saw a flat earlier on this year, and it was a case of "out of the frying pan" as it needed more work on it than my present abode, so it made me think whether staying put is better or worse.

    I am sure that you remember the thread that I started a couple of years ago after I visited Bournemouth and I mentioned that I wouldn't mind living there all year round - that makes good reading if you see it again.
    Yes George, living by the coast would be a dream but of course we have to consider the vacinity of our parents and kids, if something happened to me (heaven forbid) mrs Tex would be out on a limb as she doesn't drive
