Continuing the search for the new life - housing

The current plan is that Mrs will move and rent a flat until we sell our current house.

So over this weekend we viewed a number of flats in the new town. It doesn't look promising. Three were two far away from the school and didn't allow children anyway. One was ideal and we immediately contacted the agent to pay the deposit, only to find that someone who viewed the day before had just beaten us to it. Another was up a steep hill, which even if they installed handrails would be too dangerous for her arthritic legs. Even more unthinkable in an icy winter.

But I've just been on the phone to Mrs while writing and - plans always change with her - there is a bungalow in the next village practically on top of that village's school and close to the station on the line to the main town, and close to the cinema church. So we shall investigate!
