While I have actually lived in England since October of last year, Isfryn ... our house and smallholding in Wales ... has still in my mind been thought of as home. However, I noticed last week that in my head I have at last made the switch, now I see my flat as home and my future home ... only a hop, skip and a jump away ... will be even more my home.
When the tractor is sold and gone you know for sure you are no longer going to be working the land.
So next it's on to the tiniest home I have ever had and one I am so looking forwards to living in. Once again I will be living near water, only this time it's the canal ... and here's a tantalising glimpse of my new home.
I walked past my new place yesterday.
I was taking a round about way to the shops to get my daily exercise by getting onto the canal towpath near where I live now and walking along until I came to the white bridge that I have featured before on this blog ... not knowing I would one day be living by it ... and when I left the towpath and walked past the house and annexe the current owners were busy moving all their stuff out. I wanted to time my walk to the shops, it turns out it's just a ten minute normal paced walk to the door of Aldi or Booths, just perfect.
And in a strange twist of fate I now live almost exactly opposite the mooring of my favourite miniature canal boat. I wonder if they would sell it to me? A small home and a teeny tiny barge would go brilliantly well together. I could cruise down the canal to the shops and when I got home with the shopping my house would feel soooo big. 😀
I'm not back to blogging regularly yet but I will be back occasionally to keep you updated over the next couple of weeks and don't worry you will not miss out on any of the house before and after photos.
Stay safe and enjoy the daffodils.
