as promised - take a walk with us.......
a fantastic forest by the sea, which when we move will only be five minutes drive away.
it is full of derelict croft houses, all with a clean running stream outside the door
you can go inside and see all the fireplaces, windows and doorways - it makes you realise that our ancestors lived in such small houses, but they had everything they needed - sleeping area, eating area, space for the animals close by.....
it really made Stephen and i feel slightly ridiculous ....
we are building a house that is far to big for just two adults - i know we have lots of animals and will have an "open house" for friends and family, but it did make us feel that it was all a bit excessive.
but i guess the way we all live now is full of things we do not really need but "must have"
we came home and felt the need to strip our lives back to the basics again - the house build, the house contents, our work....... everything
time to sit and reflect
time to really think of the life that is just ahead of us
time to really see what is important
i am sick of worrying about my little business and where it is headed - at the moment it is nowhere as my heart is just not in it
i am sick of looking at bloody kitchens, dishwashers, walk in showers, underfloor heating......
do we really need any of it??
back to basics for me
and i feel so much better for it x
