It was a challenge for me initially to move to Devon from Brighton as I was used to the hustle and bustle of Brighton with all it's cafes, bars, retro / vintage shops and car boot sales! I was in a band for many years and had a very hectic but enjoyable life. Moving to Devon has given me more 'calm' and and more space and thinking time to focus on my family and career. I've less distractions (in the form of shopping!) and feel the move was a positive one for us, despite it taking time to adjust.
