    In 2004, my wife and I were hoping to move. We were interested in a detached house not far from where we live in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex. It turned out to be where Phil and his family were living. They were planning to leave Essex and move up to Cheshire where Phil, now a qualified teacher, was taking up a new post. They moved - but we didn`t buy his house.
