for those of you that are still here reading my rambles - i thank you
i realise it has been a long week for you all with quite frankly not a lot of excitement here at Cupcakes
the fact of the matter is i do not lead a particularly exciting life
apart from my home, animals and shop life - not a lot else happens around here
we live in a busy village that is growing at what feels like a rapid rate - i look out of my little shop window and see "hoodies" where i used to just see the WI members......
life is certainly moving at quite a pace
on our dog walk today, Stephen and i spoke about our forthcoming move and both agreed that the timing is spot-on
the place we are moving to is not even a village - our small patch of land overlooks the sea and nothing else, our nearest neighbours are a whole heap of fun and kindness, and above all else i am having a studio......
hey that has woken you all up
just when you had all settled in to yet another one of my long winded, slightly boring (you can say it) posts i go throw in THE word
now - for those that are not aware we are about to embark on journey of a lifetime as listed below:
animals, animals, animals
and i have been very excited, scared and overwhelmed at how lucky we are to have this opportunity
but nothing could have prepared me for the excitement when Stephen said - hey Bob the builder (yes his real name IS bob) says we can afford an outbuilding on our limited budget
my ears pricked up, my eyes narrowed and in a flash i had scribbled down a diagram of my future workspace x
i am hoping to have double doors opening up onto the sea view for those days in Scotland that are sunny and warm, and for the Winter months i am going to have a tiny wood burner to keep me warm.....
suddenly leaving this house seems a little easier......
i now look at this painting that has been hanging in our bathroom for years and think i will actually live near the sea
so this weekend i have spent some time reading up on a few things
Derek Jarman - as recommended by quite a few folk
how to keep ducks - i plan on having a few
quilt - a skill i would love to master
as for tomorrow - day seven - i plan on putting on a pretty skirt, packing a picnic and and taking off in my green ford anglia
books and crochet in tow
Archie cat agrees that day seven sound like a good one
hope your day six has been a good one
see you for our final day of the week when i attempted to add some order to my life......
