I’d like to apologise for the lack of posting last week. We moved to our new home on 12 October and have not yet been connected to the internet, so everything is being done as and when we can get WiFi or 4G when we’re out and about.
Our new home is very beautiful though it has brought many challenges. The weather on the day of our move was wild and windy which caused some issues with coming across the bridge from Bristol to Wales. This seems to have set the tone for the following days, too, as it’s been a bit of a bumpy ride.
The removal itself went past in a blur. The team arrived and seemed to sweep all our belongings up and into their lorries then head off to our new location, without even pausing for breath! We then discovered that they’d been so thorough in their sweep that they’d taken my car keys with them! This added a whole new dimension to the process.
My lovely mother and father in law had come along to help with the move but unfortunately they took a wrong turn on entering Wales and were lost for a couple of hours with no way to contact them as they don’t have mobiles. When Tim and I finally arrived we found that the lorries had already been emptied, but everything was in the wrong place, leaving us with lots to sort out and heavy things to try and move around over the next couple of days. It also meant that we couldn’t find anything – though this meant that we had to unpack every box which helped us to make the place feel a little more like home.
We couldn’t have done it all without the wonderful help from a couple of Tim’s friends from work. Thank you so much guys – we owe you big time!!
The property is a cute little cottage which is very tastefully renovated, however we found that there was some… creative wiring in the house and the office which needed to be sorted as a matter of urgency. We’ve also found that the sockets and outlets in the other outbuildings do not work which is posing some interesting challenges as the days grow shorter. Also some of the outbuildings leak, meaning that we don’t yet have the storage area we thought we would have.
The horses were due to join us the next day, but the wind was still blowing hard and so we had to reschedule. Originally we thought this was going to be for the following week, but thankfully we managed to move them on the Sunday and so they’ve been here for nearly 2 weeks now. Dax seems to be loving it in this new, wild, Welsh space – we think he might be part Welsh Section D so perhaps some of his genes feel like they’ve come home – and ‘Rika is settling in well. This involves rolling in the mud so she’s hardly recognisable now!
‘Rika after her roll in the mud!
Despite the challenges, I love it here. Walking up to see the horses every morning and evening is such a special time. I love watching the light, which is constantly changing and subtly altering the landscape and its moods. Also, the changing colours of the leaves at this time of year are turning the surrounding countryside a glorious golden hue.
The woods are amazing and there’s lots of wildlife. Most of this we hear rather than see, but there’s a wonderfully cheeky robin who is a frequent visitor.
In one of the fields there is a fabulous old beech tree. It holds an ancient, mystical energy and is a wonderful place for some mindful meditation.
I’m so looking forward to opening this space up to share its healing energy with others!
I will be inviting people to come and spend time in this peaceful place and allow it to open their hearts and bring healing.
This is an opportunity to take some time, just for yourself, to get out of your head and into your body.
To Be present…
To get in touch with your body and emotions and see how they can show you what is working well for you, and what isn’t, so that you can make supportive changes.
It’s a chance to reconnect with the Earth beneath your feet and the Nature all around you to bring balance, harmony and wellbeing.
