Yes I love stoke newington! We are buying our first house at the mo , but unfortunately the houses are far too expensive round there.So moving a bit further out so we can buy a little house with a garden! Where are you based now?
We moved from Clapton to Crouch End and then 6 yrs ago we decided to move out of London and we are now in the middle of nowhere in Suffolk, best thing we ever did really, my DH is a noisy amp at number 11 kind of guy, so no neighbours complaining anymore
I would love to move out of london, feel I have done my time here now ( 3 years). I would love to live in a little town or village. Hopefully we can do our house up ( it needs a lot of work) and sell it on in a few years , make a bit of money and move out of london! Thats my plan anyway he he - not sure what DP thinks he has to be in london for work and don't think he's keen on a long commute!
the long commute into London every day was the sticking point with my Dh for years, but he still goes 100 miles each way into London and doesnt complain at all, he sees the benefit of a rural upbringing for our 3 boys , plus his up side is he has a full recording studio in the back garden
