If you like riding in Surrey, it's great. The village / town is nice, plenty of local services, bigger towns easy to access and the housing stock is fine. Car culture down that way, obvs.
"housing stock" what a phrase.
Oh fuck off - I'm trying to be helpful. I've been looking at places to live for months so it's just snuck in my brain.
Honestly, if there's something that marks you out as a bit of a cunt, it's picking up on one fucking phrase in a well meaning sentence then making a big deal out of it. Piss off.
"bit of a cunt" what a phrase :)
I'm in Petersfield - Godalming is a lot quicker into London but has always seemed a bit soulless to me. Liss & Liphook are cheaper than Petersfield but a bit grim (Liss especially so) and only get the slower trains into London.
Hey. I don't make the rules, I only live by them.
But everyone (who used to work in a central-London office) is gonna work from home forever now
so just move to somewhere that's actually proper like st helens or nottingham
I want to move 200 metres as the crow flies.
Honestly. If there's one thing that marks you out as a cunt, it's living in Nottingham.
Long Eaton is Nottingham, yeah duck?
To clarify: I'm sat on my sofa trying to work and do stuff while listening to Hotel Transylvania 2 (or 3, I can't tell anymore) and my other kid is upstairs moaning about something else.
@Howard i didn't mean to upset you intentionally. It looks like I have upset you and that bothers me really. (really).
It's fucking Derbyshire. Just. Mi duck.
It has a Nottinghamshire postcode.
(this is one of those situations where it's spelled
depending on which end of the A52 you're at)
I live around there and absolutely love it. Moved out of London in 2017 and never looked back.
in my book (and it's a fucking bestseller) if you don't want to live in london, don't half arse it and move to surrey. i mean, you've got your stockports, your rugbys, your bradfords just crying out for bright sparks like you.
Gonna have an HS2 stop in 15 years for all those trips to London no one is going to make anymore, place is on the up and up duck
If someone wants to live somewhere really shit I'm selling a house in Telford for less than a london garage
the town named after its founder Terry ford
some parts of Wigan are haunted so house prices are actually very reasonable. you should do your best to conceal your posh London voices though because they're not daft
Like HS2 will ever get built...
why dont you sell that look instead?
I went to school for a year near there. You'd have to pay me to live there
Lots of useful comments from everyone, cheers @Chalfie @Howard and trotters.
I was pushing for around Cheshire but partner is more worried about if she changes jobs getting into London once a week is easier from Goldaming or Liphook than Chester. And I don't fancy living near crewe
I don't fancy living near crewe
I don't fancy living near crewe
i grew up near crewe ama
