Fed up with Surrey and all the people here my mil and her family are all dysfunctional nightmares. I want to move far far away and start over freshere. Is it so wrong to just want to move far away for a better life?

No i want to move coz i moved hete thinking id take care of my dad and get help from the walton crew of siblings but hes been dumped on me. Mil too but she was dunped o. me from day 1 of marriage no help even though her daughter ia sahm and her kids are in college not wee kids .

Im bitter i never wantwd to come here im moving next year husband is fed up too. There will be less resentment with distance between us

I don't think there's enough information to make a judgement. We don't know about your housing situation, your children's schools or your and your husband's job situation.

YANBU. Yorkshire is far friendly than Surrey.

You can't 'lose' your relatives no matter how far away you move; you might just see less of them.

Why Yorkshire- do you come from Yorks?

I'd love to move to Yorkshire - beautiful landscapes, friendly people and far cheaper house prices! Sadly the industry I work in doesn't have a huge number of jobs up there.

Don't know about your family but I do know about Yorkshire. Some not so good parts abd some wonderful parts but if you've got trouble with family then the moon won't be far enough to escape them grin

Don't tell everyone Dita.
Mind you, there are also some very expensive parts of Yorkshire.

It's the greatest place in the world. Fantastic scenery, beautiful coastline, thriving cities, picture-postcard villages, the loveliest people in the land... But don't tell everyone, they'll all want to come.

DH is a Yorkshireman. I think I'd have to kill him if he ever suggested moving there.

'YANBU. Yorkshire is far more friendly than Surrey'

Mordor is far more friendly than Surrey.

We are hopefully moving to West Yorkshire. I started a thread about it recently and lovely lovely people suggested some gorgeous places to live. Can't wait. We are currently in Hampshire.

I moved up North from Surrey and never looked back. I dont miss it at all. smile

Whathaveilost Mon 18-Jan-16 18:07:43

Move to Lancashire!!!

Yorkshire is a fantastic place to live. Granted there are some not nice areas currently live in the shit hole that is bradford but there is so much beauty here. I hope I live in Yorkshire till I die.

Okay background:
DH works like a dog to afford our small 2 bed flat. If we moved to where I have my sights set we could have a 3 bed with garden and a small mortgage that would be paid off in less than 10 years. Where we are now we have no chance of getting a house unless we literally won a lotto draw! DH family are.a.bunch of fuck ups. I want to keep this light but mil has put dh in unforgiving situations when he was younger. I can't forgive her and it lingers over us like a dark cloud. I just don't want anything to do with them anymore. They won't leave DH alone. But going back to moving I feel like we would have a much better quality of life in Yorkshire. We're kooped up in a small flat with 3 kids and I feel suffocated here ie no where to hang washing or store toys. I just want a more relaxed life
