yesterday my wonderful boyfriend announced enough is enough
no more packing of parcels
no more whinging about packing of parcels
no more wide eyed panic attacks about lack of gifts for family and friends
no more stepping over ginormous dust balls
we are going out for the day
the actual truth was would i like to hop in the ranger and go on a site visit with him.
of course we said yes siree
i actually enjoy these trips out as it involves visiting people who are at the start of a dream
Stephen visits their site where they have plans to build a house
i love looking at their faces knowing that so many ideas and plans are whizzing round their heads x
the journey took us through open countryside and tiny villages
it felt like Christmas
all the way there we watched huge birds of prey looking for lunch, watched out for deer on the roads and gasped at the sight of the snow-capped hills
but the highlight was the journey home in the dark
winding around roads with no street lights and suddenly seeing a croft house nestled in the hills all lit up with Christmas lights!
bright blues, whites and reds shining out in the middle of nowhere - high up on the hillside
my life here is so different from the life i had in Kent
so much wildlife at every turn, wide open skies, beautiful crofts with smoke billowing out of chimney's with livestock in the fields.
i am truly content
rather like Bella in the pictures above x
