52 Lists. Post #1

I love lists. So I'm jumping on the wonderful #52lists bandwagon that was created by Pip. Each week I will complete one of the lists so you can learn a bit about me and I can indulge on my love of all things lists.

#1: Suburbs I have Lived In.

My first home was in Greenford, Ealing. This is a borough in London. We didn't live here that long. Mainly because the place we lived in was too tiny for all 4 of us. But also because I was victim to a race based attack at school. Yep, I was a White British girl living in London and I was 5 at the time. Another reason was because my parents didn't want me growing up to be a teen pregnancy stereotype (oops) or to fall in with the wrong crowd as we didn't live in the nicest of areas. 

We then moved to New Milton. As far as I'm aware my parent's literally stuck a pin in the board. I lived there most of my life, through my parent's divorce and my college and school years. It's a rubbish place for kids to grow up as there is nothing to do. Having said that it set me up to know what I wanted out of life. To not be there!

Me and Scott then moved to Bournemouth together. Mainly because we wanted to bring up a child close to university facilities. And we have the beach, forest and amazing parks right near us. Unfortunately it is so expensive around here so we are moving again soon. 

Where did you grow up?


  1. I had no idea you lived in London as a kid! :) I have literally lived in a little town called Midsomer Norton my whole life. The hospital I was born in is a 5 minute drive from where I am right now. We've been in this house for about 17 years, another a few minutes away for 2 years, and the first house we lived in was one my Dad bought after he had to leave the army with an injury and is 5 mins in another direction. I can't imagine moving anywhere but here.

  2. I was born and raised in Dudley, but now I want to move to London!
