Good Morning to you,

Do I have some exciting news for you.

George and I are moving house.... yes and we are beyond ourselves with excitement.

I didn't mention anything before, because house buying here in England, can be a little precarious and I didn't want to jinx the process, but I am pleased to tell you, all has ran smoothly and we collect the keys to our new house tomorrow afternoon, so as you can imagine, life here has been very hectic.

We are staying in Newcastle, because it is a place we both love. The house we are moving to is smaller, which suits us just fine, because it will drastically reduce our utility costs.  The heating bill during the winter months will be greatly reduced.

.... but, the garden is much larger.  Not huge, but just big enough for George and I to handle.  The previous owners were not gardeners, so there is a lot to do, but that again, makes us so excited, because we can plan exactly what we want from the garden, rather than inheriting someone elses design.

So, I think it is time to give you a peek into what our lives look like at the moment..... are you ready? Brace yourself.

I know it looks like organised chaos.  I am closing my eyes to the fact that George has turned my beautiful leather trunk on it's side.  At times like these I have to appreciate that George and I have very different working methods. Although, I have to say, that little bit of blue tack, holding the frame to the mirror, is a pretty good idea.

As you can see, our house is full of boxes,

and more boxes.

Although I'm not sure what the canopy from the swinging chair is doing in my living room.  I think George found a space and decided that is where it would live until the furniture removers arrive.... I have a funny feeling that I will not be able to help myself.  I'll put money on it that I will move the canopy to the garage when George's back is turned.

My sewing is the one thing which is really organised as I wanted to be sure, I could lay my hands on my sewing, for those moments when I have 5 minutes to spare.... although I don't think there will be many spare moments for quite a while. 

So it's goodbye to our garden.

which we have loved 


nurtured for so long.

But it isn't all sadness, because we are taking with us some of the plants which we divided earlier in the year,

to come and live with us in our new garden.

Oh and do you remember the mint I planted for our mint tea, well look how it's grown. We will be taking this with us as well, because once planted in it's new terracotta pot, I will be able to make mint tea once again.

So that is my news.  I have to say I will probably be busy for the next month or so, because there is a lot of decorating to be done in the new house.

I have decided later in the year, I am going to share with you, how our new garden evolves from a bit of a field into a lovely country garden.

I will try and visit you when I can, and I promise I will catch up with the comments you have so kindly left me. They have been read, but not answered, which I know is very bad manners, but I feel sure you will understand, because you know how stressful moving can be.

.... but it is also very exciting.

Take care and I will catch up with you very soon.

As Always,
