Farewell Brighton, my old friend.

We moved to Brighton in 2003, so, what nearly 8 years ago? And on the 1st July, we move away. Our youngest chap, just past his first birthday, is often pretty poorly and childcare for sick children doesn’t come cheap. So our family is moving to Wokingham in the home counties, closer to my parents, so we can continue to work in the industry we love and bring up our children in the best way we know how.

It’s a wrench. We have many lovely friends here and Brighton is a place we love deeply. But there are positives too – Toby will (hopefully) attend my old primary school and we have found a lovely house on the same road as my childhood home. What the area lacks in Big City attractions and beaches it makes up for in small town charm and countryside and it is just as close to that there London so plenty of chance for meetups one way or another.

So au revoir, Sussex. It’s been emotional.


  1. A wrench from something you trust, love and know is never easy. But this looks like the perfect move, you can not beat the countryside for a fresh view on the world (on a daily basis). I hope your move is as easy as such a thing can be and nothing gets broken in transit. :)

    on a positive (for us at least!) we’re looking forward to you being so much closer to us – it’s about 30 minutes on the train from Ealing

    Sorry to hear you are leaving Brighton but good luck with the move!

    We (a small web studio) are based just up the road in Caversham and there is a small web community In Reading. There are geeks nearby!

  4. Brighton’s loss is our gain. Looking forward to welcoming you guys back to the glorious home counties :)

    Will also have to drag Paul along to http://creativeassembly.net/ in Bracknell.
