today i escaped the village - not to go anywhere exciting but away from the house, the packing and everything else.
it is important to me just to step away occasionally and today's outing arrived at a good time.
Stephen's lovely mum looked after the shop for me, Stephen walked the hounds and i went off with my dearest most special friend A x
o.k - to be truthful it started as not really a day trip as A x had an appointment at the hospital for an X-ray so i went along to keep her company.
i sat and waited for A x to put on her gown, have her X-ray, and while i waited i passed the time by people watching
the range of people that pass by in front of you in the space of 20 mins is fascinating.
i could have stayed longer!
but as we are girls and the rest of the day was ours we took ourselves off for a spot of clothes shopping.
2 pairs of linen trousers
1 linen skirt
1 pretty top
period living magazine
2 jars of cadbury;s chocolate spread
i think i did well.
we now have a provisional date for moving - the buyers are currently renting and there notice will run out 3rd week of July.
i feel i now have time to breathe - packing of the house is organized, the shop however is a different story (i had a little visitor today at my shop - but more about that tomorrow x)
so i must pull myself together and start the ENORMOUS sale
this is a picture of part of my little garden that i am leaving behind
and this is how i left the girls this morning - saving space on the dog sofa for the next whippet......
yes - the next whippy is already deeply installed in my heart, she has a name and quite clearly a spot on the sofa.
but girls aside and moving on from what is being left behind (the house not the whippets!) - this is a sneaky peek at the life we are moving to...
this will be our view each and every day forever.....
when i see these pictures i almost cannot believe that we are going to build on it - it is just so beautiful just as it is......
and to make you all realise why a third whippet HAS to happen i thought i would leave you with a picture of Talulla at 9 weeks old
eeekkk - i don't think i can stop at just three
maybe i could squeeze four on to the sofa?
