winter goodness

27 August 2014

Winter has been quiet on this blog but immensely fulfilling in person…

Housesat in the hills and trees. Watched the fog wade through the valley. Lay with my dog on the grass. The novelty of hanging washing on a line outside. Long lunches in the backyard. The smell of wood fires from neighbouring chimneys. Started & finished my writing project. Helped and lifted others by listening, caring and talking. My husband & I lived with my mum & stepdad for a month & cherished every precious moment, every giggle, every snuggle on the couch, every cup of tea made for each other. A family reunion to celebrate my grandpa’s 90th birthday. Travelled down memory lane whilst packing boxes. Nursed my friends’ babies & got called a baby whisperer! Thoughtful gifts from beautiful women. Marvelled at precious friendships. Connected & hugged.

Gratitude for one chapter that is closing & the excitement of starting the next.

    It must have been so good to spend some valuable time with your family before your big travelling adventure begins. They will miss you especially being so far away. Sarah x
