A COUPLE who moved from London to Bristol are talking as if they’ve done something extremely brave.
Illustrator Mary Fisher and vague internet job worker Tom Booker moved to Bristol because they wanted to buy a relatively cheap house, but keep banging on about their ‘old lives’ in London.
Fisher said: “We were out every night in London at cutting-edge art galleries, restaurants you wouldn’t have heard of and plays where they make you dress up as a soldier. It was pretty amazing, as you can imagine.”
Seemingly forgetting that Bristol is still a big city with loads of crackheads, she added: “In the end though we were prepared to sacrifice that for a quieter life, where we have an allotment and wear dungarees like it’s the war.”
Booker said: “Of course we’re very lucky that everyone can work remotely these days. Well, everyone like us. Not people with normal office jobs but there’s probably only 50 million or so of them.”
Fisher added: “Now that we’re here were want to make a positive impact, possibly by setting up the puppetry academy that this working class area so desperately craves.
“We’re not saying we deserve a medal but some kind of trophy might be good, if it was designed by Grayson Perry and was tasteful.”
