Six months on since we reallocated from London to Stoke-on-Trent. What a big decision it was. No one can argue- living outside London is totally different.

I would probably miss it if I was still single. Or at least if I didn’t have my 3 little monsters, that keep me busy 7 days a week. But for now, it doesn’t matter if I am in a fancy city or in a quiet countryside – not much chance for me to go out anyway, ha ha. And hey, London is not a thousand miles away. We will certainly visit those special places time to time.
Talking about restaurants, we had already found our few new local favourites! If you know us well, you must have noticed, that Edward and I are fans of a good Chinese buffet.
