I don't know if any you out there are like me & hubbo but we are desperate to move but so many factors are stopping us!

The usual: Money, jobs, practicalities such as who would look after daughter when I am at work, etc, etc.

We look at Rightmove every day for houses within the vicinity of where we are looking, we do find houses within our price range and within the area we want but the doom and gloom of the practical side of a move put doubt in our mind.

We were 3 weeks away from moving in August 2009 when me & hubbo split up. Obviously we are back together again now, but the reason we wanted to move are still there. We do live in a nice village now, the reasons we moved here was to be close to the road network as both of us were based out on the road, but these are now the same reason as we want to move.

Our chosen area for the move is the Yorkshire Dales, we do love it there we went to Reeth for our 1st ever weekend away together 10+ years ago. We have looked at other options, Lake District & Scotland but property prices and distance put those areas on a back burner, so Yorkshire Dales is still our 1st choice.

We have twice jumped in the car to look at properties as it is only 1hr - 1hr 1/2 away. The pictures show a few of the properties.

However this long winded post is all about the fact that this weekend I have had a blow out and basically decided we are not looking anymore as I feel I am putting my life on hold and not getting on with the NOW!

Glad I popped over, but your right, live now and don't put anything on hold if you can.

Thank you for popping by my blog and leaving a lovely comment.

Wow, reading your post was just like a snippet of what I was feeling back January. We decided after lots of long discussions to focus on 'living' where we are, and enjoying/embracing it, lol! So as a result we have spent the last few months making some huge changes to our lives... and it feels good. I have started blogging again too, so do pop by and let me know how you are getting on.
Warm wishes

23 years ago, we stayed in Muker for our honeymoon. Swaledale is beautiful. I would be very happy to live up there, but I know it's never likely to happen. For the present, I am content to be where I am.

I hope your move works out at just the right time for you!
