We get to stay in our lovely countryside town until October 2010! The extension that we put in for has come through. It didn't end up being the full 3 years as we had hoped, but it still gives us more time to travel and buy antiques! The better half is adamant about moving to a bigger house. I'm not crazy about the idea...especially if we are only going to be living there a little over a year and a half. I'm willing to compromise though. A move means new furniture:) I'll keep you posted.
Us staying here doesn't only mean that we get an extension in our opportunities to travel, it also extends your opportunity to visit!
