House hunting

As you may have gathered, Alice and I are planning to move out of London. I will be sorry to see it go, but we plan to move to a place such that we can still come into town during the week. The two hour commute is really killing Alice and so we are now on the case. This weekend we had a good drive around looking at the areas and getting a good feel for them. There seems to be lots of possibilities which is very encouraging and we will start looking in earnest after Christmas. Now that I know where I will be placed it makes life a lot easier too.

Thanks to Alice's work a lot of the financial burden of moving has been lifted and they have a deal such that you can bye a house before you have sold yours, breaking the chain. So last week we had two surveyors round to value the property.
