Abstract

The stone fidelity they hardly meant has come to be
Their final blazon, and to prove our almost-instinct almost true:
What will survive of us....An Arundel Tomb,
Philip Larkin

As I write this, seemingly moments from the reality of a ‘hard’ Brexit, my partner and I have commenced our own leaving. Living outside of England –and likely the UK –has always been an aspiration,but events of the past few years alongside Brexit’s spiteful denouement have expedited our intentions. Where this destination will be is as yet unconfirmed; Ireland, France, Canada, the Netherlands but a few names on the list.
