I don't live in Yorkshire anymore…

Posted on March 21, 2009 by yankeebean

yankeebeanAlthough I don’t usually post personal stuff, this will be relevant with regards to future  blog posts – so here goes!

As of yesterday, me and Mr Nice Guy packed up all of our stuff and hit the road.  We drove away from Yorkshire and headed down South to find our fortunes!

Why?

  • Closer to Mr Nice Guy’s family
  • Good for web design
  • Good for music
  • Closer to everything

How’d it go?

  • The move went like clock-work
  • I discovered muscles upon muscles that I didn’t know I had
  • I ate a lot of sugar and caffeine
  • At the end of it all we arrived in a big city down South and collapsed in an exhaustion-and-white-wine induced heap…

What next?

Well, now, I don’t know… now we arrange the new apartment to our liking, find new restaurants, try to meet new people (I’m going to try out first-hand the suggestions we’ve had about meeting new people), miss the people we got to know and love in York (and try to convice them all to move south, too – this means you, peacfulyorkshire!!), and generally just ‘go with the flow’

What about the blog?

I think us three girls always knew that our lives would take us in different directions, but this won’t effect the blog or the blog title in anyway.  Although I don’t live in Yorkshire anymore, my personal adventures of being an American in Britain will continue!  If anything, our blog will become more diverse with one ‘correspondent’ in the North, one in the South, and one back at ‘home base’ in America – I’m looking forward to seeing the different perspectives already!

But right now I’m writing this surrounded by boxes and dust so I’d better get started trying to sort it all out…  here we go!

    I’m looking forward to hearing if it really is that different in the South. So glad you made it safely – and hope the unpacking is going well!

    Your new friends will be lucky to find you!

    Best of luck with the move. There’s not much worse in life than moving house, in my opinion – although it’s a great opportunity to chuck out all that stuff you don’t need.

    Times, they are ah changing…. as we each start new chapters in our lives, I am so excited for your new home!
    Can’t wait to hear about your experiences down South! Between you “down there”, myself still up here in Yorkshire (yes, still representing the American in Yorkshire contingency) and Pacificbird moving back to America to get married to Mr. Charasmatic, well… we will have a lot to share then won’t we?
