  1. Hi Dave, I’ve listened quite a few of your songs and for, my money, this is the best. In less skilled hands it could come across as mawkish but you manage to avoid that trap and you handle a difficult subject with skill and wit. Well done, that man.

  2. I really enjoyed this Dave. It nearly wraps up all the thinking behind contemplating a move, the chorus sums it all up so perfectly and I think the tune complements it so we can easily follow along with you. We haven’t got to the point of considering downsizing (I still have a teenager in the house) but I’m dreading the prospect for the future for all the reasons you’ve skilfully described in the song.
