You might have noticed it's been rather quiet in the Attic of late. Well, we've been very busy with something BIG. It's been a long time coming. A dream for many years. A move, to somewhere altogether quieter, greener, a little wilder, with space for growing children and perhaps some chickens, ducks maybe. Maybe even a goat? We'll see. It is a very sad goodbye to this house we have loved and nurtured (and which has nurtured us in turn), renovated and knocked holes in walls and patched them up and built bits on and took off its hat and gave it a new shiny one. I will miss it so, and there WILL be tears. But, the time has come to follow that dream. It's all rather scary at the moment, we want to rent in our new community to settle in and get to know it before we take the plunge and buy (or build), but rents are scarce, especially this time of the year (it's a popular spot in summer), so we actually haven't got anywhere to move IN to at the moment. I'm trying to hold to the 'leap and the way will open' philosophy, which is very hard for me because I'm not naturally brave, and I like to be able to see the safety net before I even think about letting go. But things will turn out, I will keep telling myself that, even if we do end up in a tent for a bit! So here, probably for the last time, are some pics of our little house, looking tidier than it ever has before, all shined up and sparkling to entice potential new owners. And as you can see from the first pic, it worked beautifully!
And, because a munchkin's bedroom just isn't the same without a munchkin in it, here they are, looking so terribly grown-up. Mind you, their rooms never normally look this clean!
Transmission may be intermittent for a while, there is much packing and sorting and culling, and of course, stressing and pulling hair out and not getting enough sleep to come in the next few weeks, but I hope to be back blogging before Christmas. Wish us luck!
