Recently I mentioned in a post that, as I walked back from collecting eggs, I was sooo happy where I am. Doing the same thing the other day I thought about lots of things I love about living where we are and doing what we do.
I love hearing the chooks chattering whilst I hang out the washing.
I love that somebody said our eggs are the FRESHEST they have tasted.
I love that there is so much to forage for in the hedgerows near the house in the Summer.
I love the sun comes up at the front of the house and goes down at the back, all day view.
I love that I would rather be doing something outside rather than cleaning the house!
I love the view across my veg patch and growing area.
I love that our guests have said we have a very special place here and that it is a jewel.
I love to see the Poly House benches groaning with seedlings in the Spring.
I love that I have the time and the inclination to bake my own bread.
I love that the garden is big enough for the boys to play football.
I love Jon for building the garden things we planned to have even before we came here!
I love that the boys are able to go to a small, local school and still do loads of activities.
I love that the boys have taken to the Welsh language SO well.
I love that Jon is home every night to have tea with us as a family.
I love seeing the change of season in the garden when Autumn comes.
I love that I have the kitchen I have dreamed of but never thought I would ever have.
I love that the house will give us a business meaning Jon and I can work together at home.
I love the view from the front kitchen window and ...
I love the view from the top kitchen window!
I love that we have a separate TV room.
I love that the boys can't wait to go swimming in the river in the Summer.
I love that we enjoy spending evenings by the fire in the living room in the Winter.
I love that, if all goes to plan, I will be able to provide a lot of our fruit n veg from the garden.
I asked the boys to tell me a couple of things that could go on the list.
Alfie said he liked the garden because it is big and has lots of trees great for hide and seek.
Harry said he likes living here because there is no traffic near the house, and he likes the house because it is halfway between modern and old.
(I'm sure they could think of other things but were too busy playing ball in the conservatory - that could probably go on the list.)
Forgot about this post until just now but I still wanted to put it out there.
Bye for now.
