This is the view from my lounge window. The views from this house are one of the major things that we will miss. We did have a little flurry of snow several times yesterday, but thankfully it didn't amount to much and disappeared as quickly as it came.
The temperatures have dropped and we have been enjoying sitting in front of the stove, that is something that we will have installed into our new home. We have started to make our wish list, so far we seem to agree on what we want. We have been quite calm about the whole process but now we are getting a little fed up with it all. I am not good with the uncertainty of it all.
On a lighter note we have had so much fun planning our new life, rekindling the wonderful memories and excitement of starting our life together many years ago. We had so many plans back then and have fulfilled so many of them. The biggest dream of all to live on an Island off the West Coast of Scotland, we are now fulfilling our dream and can hardly contain our excitement.
The packing up of all our belongings has been quite enlightening, we are definite hoarders saving something in case it comes in. It was quite easy in the end to lighten our load and in the process help others despite the emotional attachment . The furniture that we no longer need will be collected on Monday and will help families who have lost everything, uplifting to know that it will still be loved.
I am going to have a bake later today to make quiche, soup, scones and a fruit cake for the week. The freezers and the store cupboard are almost empty, so we have done really well with the food budget spending very little for the past couple of months. False economy I know as the money saved will need to be spent on restocking once we have moved.
We did discover some treasure at the back of the shed that we have no memory of at all:
What on earth is it doing in the shed? Your guess would be as good as mine, we have no idea where it has all come from. We certainly have no memories of ever buying it or been given it... Secret treasure at the back of the shed, what a joy! I love enamelware so it has been washed and packed up ready to start its new life.
Thank you for all your lovely and uplifting comments on my last couple of posts. Hopefully I will have a definite date for the start of our big adventure next week.
See you soon.
