I haven’t blogged for ages and this is mostly due to the fact that one of my major preoccupations had to be confidential. I can now spill the beans: the Swinney family is transplanting to Surbiton in Surrey in the summer for Shawn to take up a new role as Associate Minister at Christ Church (see here).
We have been in Chalfont St Peter for almost nine years, which is longer than either Shawn or I have lived anywhere (more than twice as long). We had our kids here. I became a writer and Shawn became a reverend. We have put down roots and become familiar faces. We see people we know in shops. I have made my itchy feet stand still and learnt the value of slow growing loyalties.
I am excited and scared by our move. And now I can write about it, I will.
