nearly in our current home 3 years, and its fine.
ds now 1 is gradually marking every bit of paintwork whereas dd didnt touch a wall let along mark a thing.
we thought we would move in the next 6 mths or so. should we stay put a little longer?, let ds get a bit bigger and save on decorating costs!

we want to move for 3 reasons, dh wants a garage, i want a studio (me room) and more privacy.

where we are will be very handy for schools but thats 1 yr away for dd, my biggest fear is my neighbours would sell and we'd get a bunch of nosiy people next to us, we have lovely quiet neighbours with small children.

i was kinda thinking that about school alright
and decorating for selling would be ok as we could do it ourselves,
i think its stay put for another wee while

Really miss my family, and just quality of life I guess. We hate commuting to Dublin and not having enough space, and if we moved into town we'd have a massive mortgage and I'd have to keep working... work is OK but want to be home when more babies arrive, hopefully soon! We're here 8 years and change is good. Not looking forward to winter though!

commuting really is awful, i dont know how u do it or any mums with kids, the weeks just fly by and then its catch up at the weekend.

marks brother is having a hard time in london with their ds in creche and them both working, his wife leaving house at 6.30am stuff.and him travelling.

i ahve to say the idea of a massive mortgage would scare me, thats why living here is cost effective, how do people do it?
my firend just bought a house in portmarneock and they are mortgaged up to the hilt, hes self emp, and they are so blase about it. shes at home exp no 4!

I would stay put as long as you can. I have had my house on the market for 2 months, tons of viewings and only 1 silly offer and we have reduced the price too. Its horrible trying to keep it clean with a toddler and its very stressfull thinking it may take months and months. If there was anyway I could make it bigger and not move I would!

jane that must be a pain alright cleaning all the time.
we could extend too, but i dont think we'd make any more money out of doing that, its just this house isnt my be all and end all house.

but i think its a stay foir the time being feeling.
