    It's like your beef with London is personal?
    last time down his coq au vin turned out to be a cock that got hit by a van every foodies nightmare... talking of coq, im having it.
    I was in london for a good few weeks but have to say i didnt enjoy it.. living there may well be better tho, although im sure like wrexham and barbados, its location, location that counts

    We had been thinking of selling up and moving to Brighton - Eldest daughter talking about moving there and starting family, youngest at Uni there. We enjoyed visiting there, very vibrant atmosphere around Kemptown and "the lanes".

    However, recent "lockdown" has made it clear how lucky we are to live in a village (and in Suffolk ). My main concern now is people looking to move out of London to continue working from home in a more pleasant atmosphere.

    When I was living in Glasgow, in my parents house, in my early 20s and single, before I met Del, I booked a nice hotel for two weeks (on my own) in Bayswater, took the train down to London, then got a pass for unlimited travel on the tube, and had an absolute ball - sightseeing, eating out at nice restaurants/pubs in Covent Garden and discovering Chinatown, doing all sorts of fun things, some of them a bit 'naughty', as a young man does, although fortunately I didn't catch anything...

    And I'm quite sure now, if Del and I went for a HOLIDAY to London, I'd enjoy it just as much - as in many ways it's a great city! But for me, ONLY as a holiday destination, not to live, as it's fundamentally not somewhere I'd wish to be these days 24/7, 365. And that would apply to ANY major UK city, apart from Glasgow, simply because that was where I was born.

    I simply don't 'do' crowds or stress... I like to relax, and be as far aways as possible from what these days is considered by the masses as 'normal life' - and so 'off-grid', far more than on it. To an extent, I *can* do that living in North Wales, as the vast majority of it is non-urban and often a bit old-fashioned/'behind the curve', which suits my lifestyle perfectly.

    But if I were to choose where to live in Scotland, I still wouldn't *choose* Glasgow. It'd probably be somewhere like the Isle of Skye, and based on what I've said here many times, in terms of what's most important to me, I shouldn't need to repeat why that would be, and how, despite the fact that London has much to offer, it simply couldn't compare

    Mind you when I look on Rightmove it's quite amazing what I could afford in say your area Marco
    It's amazing what having Marco for a neighbour does for house values.

    And Wrexham used to be such a lovely place

    Damn, what am I going to do with all this hot pot I've made? Suppose I'll have to freeze it for when Grant moves south

    Sorry that was 10 minutes ago. I've eaten it all. Could always make some more. Includes suet dumplings, so maybe it's not for you if you're at all interested in healthy eating.
