Day 32 series 3- House hunting & camping

This morning we are going to look at a house I really love. I know I love it already and it has lots of the qualities that I want. I can see our family living there. I can see the children happy in the back yard. I can see Steve out the back shed brewing his beer and having the space all to himself. I can see my office. I can see my biscuits baking in the oven. I just love to cook and it has a huge oven. The universe is aligning so its ours.

Just packing up the caravan for this weekend. Busily removing all the electric tvs and videos and microwaves etc and putting in all the stuff we need like lanterns and torches, barbeques and kettle. The kids are getting excited about it. I think even they like being away from the bombardment of life theat they get now. Its so much fun to have sandcastle building competitions and beachcombing, sitting around a campfire with marshmallows and a bottle of port, playing cardgames and backgammon and chess, reading a good book (even a not so good book) in a hammock strung between two trees, having a game of rounders or cricket with all the family involved...even just sitting and talking with no other distractions. Isnt it obvious that I have missed the quietness and that real connection that is made when there is no other distractions. I know lots of you would be saying....oh but to not have power is awful, even worse not to have showers and hair dryers....what can I say, but I love simplicitiy and for me its all about the family and connection and I have got very good at washing in a bucket.

Oh, I just made an offer on the house....subject at this stage to the sale of this house. Haha, now I have to get the painting done.

I think so. Dealing with the public with no set working hours means i can be working at 10pm. Its so nice to step away for a while. Even my net addicted 15 year old is looking forward to having 3 days with no computer.

it is so lush to have a stack of magazines and books and nothing else to do and no where else to go. Bliss.

Sounds wonderful, stillness speaks. What will it be saying?
