Hello everybody (first post)
(I am a dude, I hope it is ok I am writing on a mothering forum, in my defense let me say that I know a good deal about births, theoretically and practically(my wife (btw, i notice DH is a reference to husband, should i be writing DW?) is a doula, and our third was born at home with only myself as the (non)assistant ) , (yes i am into computers as you could tell from the correctly nested parenthesis))
My wife and I , (and three boys 3,6,8) are moving to London (from Israel) following a job.
some stuff about us
We are looking for a place that would fit our lifestyle and budget.
We've got three boys so we need some space, (a 3 bed , preferably with a garden, and parks nearby)
We home/un school so we'd like someplace with a community of other home/un schoolers , just so once every while we could meet other families, and join some activity once every while.
on the same subject , a place where there is enough after school activity to sign up to for kids(martial arts/music/sports etc.)
We eat A LOT of fruit and vegetables so some place with markets (organic ?? )
(some weeks we consume ~50 KG of produce, did I say Vita-Mix ?)
I will be commuting daily to central London (Piccadilly Circus), so either within tube range or a good rail connection.
and budget,... well we were thinking of allocating ~1400 -1600 pounds (depending on how expensive the transportation will be to central London).
any advice ?
