Happy New Year ,really hope it's a good one for all of u,or at least,not a bad one,coz I guess in these straitened economic times we have to be realistic...still,one of us could still end up winning the lotto,right?! I mean,who knows,it's good to stay positive...
I'm hoping somebody out there can help me...pleaseeeeeee!!! I'm planning to move soon (I should mention here that I'm renting not buying) to another area of Cork county,but I would so love to move to a lovely,friendly,community oriented area preferably . I have kids so a place not too far from a primary and secondary school would be fantastic (my oldest child will be starting secondary school in 2013). My rental budget is €750 max. per month. Commuting isnt really a problem as I work from home,although I have to say,I wouldn't like to be more than 90 mins.from the city. That said,if it was a really lovely area,I wouldnt mind tooo much!!
Why is it soo hard these days to find a friendly area to live? I find it so sad that in general our society has changed to a much colder place than it used to be . I guess another way of putting it is that when I smile at a stranger in acknowledgement of their humanity, I would love for them to actually smile back,instead of glancing at me suspiciously for the split second it takes them to furiously move their head in the opposite direction and move-quick! quick!- swiftly away from the friendly face...I mean...what the hell is that about?!!!
I wanna live in a place where everybody knows my name...well,at least a good few people...all right,a handful even...!!! Pleasssseeeeee helppp meee you guys!!!!! I'll be sooo grateful forever,I really mean that coz this decision will change not only the course of my life, but also my kids...for ever.
(PS, Sorry about all the smilies...but I luv those guys,they're my new favourite thing...sorry...!!!!!)
