Deciding to leave a well paid job is a big step. Would we manage with less income? Would I feel lonely and worthless being at home again? Far from it! I have stumbled across a deep sense of satisfaction. The freedom to be creative and fill my home with hand crafted treasures, having the time to plan and cook healthy meals for my family and the time to 'Just Be'. Living a simple life is truly something to aspire to for everyone.

We have exchanged!
At long last, we have, today, exchanged on the house in Shropshire. I am so relieved to finally have some certainty. The present owners haven't managed to exchange on the house they are buying yet, so may have to move in with family in the meantime, but they knew we wanted to move out of ours and in to their's simultaneously, so have 'broken the chain'.
I now feel I can share some photos of the house. I didn't want to jinx anything before. I can also truly start to get excited :)
So here, for your delectation, are some photos of the garden and house we will spend the next stage of our lives in.

To the side of the garden is a stream, pond, chicken coop, small barn, greenhouse and small vegetable garden

The other lounge, which we will use as a snug and music room

Thank you so much to all of you who have patiently stuck with my little blog through this rather dull time. I am very much looking forward to sharing some of my excitement with you all in the coming months.....for now, I will continue packing :(
