Good luck in your hunt. I was born and bred in Putney, SW London. I moved to Bedfordshire when my daughter was born and now I’m back here in SW after a recent split. My hatred for London has never been more prevalent. I’ve never been so desperate to get as far away from this city as possible!
PS. Apologies for the rant on your post. Just felt the need to vent.
Hi Shellbeau, I would like to be this third single mum, are you still looking or you already found someone?
I’m 30 yrs old, my kids are 5 and 7 years old, my worplace is also in sw and I think it’ll be helpfull for each other to be engage in this kind of opportunity. My kids will come to live with me before the school term, so I need to find a place soon, I can wait until October if needed. For the moment I can afford a rent of 900 pounds bills included. I’m in a permanent full time employement.
Absolutely. Hope for the best. Prepare for the worst, or so they say. Everywhere has it’s pros and cons. Swings and roundabouts.
And I know everyone’s financial situation is different but me and my ex partner purchased a beautiful 3-bedroom new-build house an hour’s drive from London with a decent size garden for the 3 of us, en-suite and our own drive for 2 cars. Our mortgage was just over £700. We were paying just over £350 each. That’s why I baulk at people I know who live in Barnes, SW London who pay approximately £2000 a month for a 1/2 bedroom flat, not including bills, etc.
Like I said, though, I’m an old man now… I’ve been 39 going on 69 for years! Give me the quiet countryside to retire any day of the week!
