I liked it, it was country, it was beautiful. You know, you could walk out and you’d know you were walking in the country and that. We used to go for nice walks, we’d go down to Gadebridge and all round, it was really very, very nice but of course it changed, it’s like a concrete jungle now. I’ve never regretted coming here, I think it’s one of the best moves that we’ve made and I do truly love Hemel Hempstead, you know. I know it’s changed and that but it’s been very good and I think the children have been better off living out here.
