First of all I must say Hello and Welcome to the people who've clicked the follower button recently.
It's now 4 years and 4 days since we came to this cottage at the end of a Suffolk lane, hopeful that Colin was going to stay well. Sadly he didn't and passed away just 14 months later and now in 3 days I'll be leaving for my temporary home until the purchase of the bungalow is sorted.....exciting but with a touch of sadness as I've loved living here...... but life goes on and I'll be glad to pass on all the potential expenses and work involved with an old house and an acre of land to a much younger family (and if only the Chancellor of the Exchequer had announced the extension to the stamp duty holiday a few weeks earlier I needn't have done all the faffing about with holiday let!)
Youngest Daughter arranged a friend to come and collect a pine bed frame and chest of drawers for her ex partner and my final trip to the Household Recycling site didn't take long just a couple of old crates and some things from the greenhouse that I no longer need . Now everything is as tidy and empty as I can make it and all ready for the new owners.
I keep hearing good news about things starting again, the swimming pool I've already mentioned and then this week I found the first car-boot sales are due on the 18th April, mobile libraries are also starting after the 12th April. My small Suffolk world is gradually re-opening and I hardly dare believe it will happen!
This week I've been grateful for
- Finally clearing the last things from the workshop and garage
- Losing myself /filling time with a Very long Italian crime series on TV (36 x 45 minute episodes!)
Thanks to everyone for comments yesterday. If I'd been in the right frame of mind I'd planned to find out and write more about Ash trees but waiting to move has upset all my good intentions!
Back Monday - Briefly.
