I skipped a few days of the blogging challenge again. Too knackered with all the packing, travelling, unpacking and settling back in. But today’s challenge from Outmumbered is “Where I live.”
According to Wikipedia, ” Greenisland is a village in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. It lies 7 miles north-east of Belfast and 3 miles south-west of Carrickfergus. The village is on the coast of Belfast Lough and is named after a tiny islet to the west, the Green Island.
It is a semi-rural community located at the foot of Carn Hill , upon which stands the Knockagh Monument, a war memorial for those from County Antrim who died in the first and second world wars.
We have been living on and off here for the past six years. I say on and off because we keep trying to leave but we always find our way back here. We lived in Groomsport for a year (too posh-read uptight-to be comfortable for us!) . We lived in Carrickfergus as well for almost a year, in the Marina but moved back to Greenisland when I was 7 months pregnant with Georgie.
For obvious reasons we are looking to move again. This house is too full of memories now and too small for another baby, as we wish to have soon.
So if you live in Carrick or Greenisland and know of a big, lovely and bright house soon to let, let me know, will you?
Good luck with your search for a new house, we moved in May and our new house is far better now the initial issues we had have been resolved! x
