Good to know....

A research paper published in England today, has put the county of Buckinghamshire at the top of a list of the best places to live!


The 500,000 residents of Bucks have the highest quality of life, a longer than average life expectancy, bigger homes, higher wages, great education, better health and even get more sunshine.

I found this news especially pleasing seeing as most of my immediate family and many of my friends live in this beautiful county. In fact the towns my Aunt, Mum and Grandmother live in, all got a particular mention. My brother is also doing well as he lives most of the time in Bucks and has his business in the 2nd top county of Surrey, he may now want to reconsider relocating to Somerset this year...LOL

I lived in the fifth top county of Hertfordshire pretty much all my life, but spent my last 6 weeks in the UK at my Mum's in Bucks. I always knew I had good taste ;-)

So for those of you over here who have now developed great friendships with my Mum on her visits here, if I was you I'd be taking her up on that offer to visit soon!

I grew up in Bucks. A far cry from the Plains of the Midwest...

I've never been there, but I have a feeling I'd love it.

Hertfordshire is gorgeous. I lived in London--loved it too but far too pricey now.
