North versus South,
East versus West.
A great divide and debate over which side is best.
Yet one thing has slipped our minds,
A verse left from the middle.
What about the people who are living in the middle?!

And the answer is, they're having a bloomin good time. The Mr and I have finally done it. We've left our softy southern ways behind and turned into Peaky Blinders. We're not quite up to the gravy on chips stage yet but we are definitely enjoying everything the Peak District has to offer.
We have been here for about 10 weeks now and the search is on for a fabulous country house. I fear this may take some time as budget and extreme fussiness will have an impact.
The picture of our modest rental house above does make it look a tad like a Jacobean Mansion but I can assure you it is not. We are a little bit squished inside, although that does help with the ongoing de-cluttering.
Life is suddenly very exciting. Which is why its good to have a calming view down the lane.
