We've also spent a lot of time trying to understand ethical investment options. We've compiled some notes about raising kids, and local information like accomodation near North Walsham and travel to and bed and breakfasts in the Loughborough area (where we used to live).
John is keen that we get a larger vehicle so is busy researching six-seater cars and bigger. We don't actually drive that much -- maybe just as well because we get as fed up as anybody about bad driving. For a while John was commuting to work on the east side of Norwich, and he even waged his own campaign to persuade the County Council to improve road surfaces or even create a new rail station on the edge of the large commercial and industrial estate where he worked. Sadly not successful, yet, but maybe one day!
