You lived in spain? where? what were you doing ?

Our daughter was born in 2006 and we felt that Spain would be a great place to raise a baby, so we upped-sticks and went to live there from 2007 to 2010.

We had a lovely long holiday, but our timing was bad. We arrived just as the credit crunch was happening and Spain's economy was hit hard. Their construction industry collapsed almost overnight and the cost of living started to climb.

We loved the people and the land and the weather but it never felt like home. I suspected I'd always feel like a visitor and after a while we became homesick for English rain and cynicism.

We returned in 2010 and immediately put down strong roots in Devon, which is where I intend to live out my days.
