Finally moving away - yay!
We are moving to a bigger house in the country, probably 2nd week of June, which is an hour's drive and 40 miles from where we live now. One of the best things about it is that currently we are 3 miles away from NPD BM's house, where SD25 lives, and SD23 just lives there while furloughed from her London job. There will be less potential for us to get dragged into any drama when we are so much further away. I think chances are quite high that failure-to-launch SD25 will sooner or later put in a bid to come and live with us - possibly if NPD BM throws her out - which has happened before. I can imagine her doing this despite the fact that we will be living in a village with little public transport and she doesn't drive.
However I have told DH that under no circumstances is she coming for any longer than the occasional overnight stay. I have served my time in the past, I am 62, and I deserve some peace now. We have lived in a house for the last 13 yrs that while nice, is a little too small for our needs, especially when my grandchildren come. We lived here because it is near the train station for DH commuting, and near NPD BM - gag. DH now works from home, plus we will be near one of my best friends that I have known since the age of 9. Can't wait!
