new beginnings


This has been the scene at my new house for the past three months. A tiny, unloved, worn, tatty and unremarkable house with an overgrown, tatty garden has been knocked about, stripped bare and ripped apart. Slowly slowly the house has been put back together, added to and improved, and is nearly ready for me to move into, a brand new clean slate for me in so many ways. Tomorrow my furniture and belongings move out of storage and into their new home, and at the weekend I will follow. There is a lot to do but it will be mine to do with as I wish, a gift. It will be exactly one year since my old home went on the market and life changed shape. A very long year, a very hard year, but a neat representation of the circle of life. I hope to be creative there.

I will be making a Flickr set about the house and the changes that take place there, should you wish to have a look. It's not up yet but will be soon.

Best wishes in your new home, I hope moving in is pain-free - which is about as much as can be hoped from moving, I find - and that you can quickly begin creating happy memories there.

Good luck with the move Sue and I hope your new home brings you much happiness and creativity.

After vacating Tales from a Cottage Garden, I too have 'moved home', but only virtually;-)

I hope that by now you have begun to deck the halls with boughs of whatever takes your fancy, and to feel that your "nest" is truly a sanctuary. God Bless.
