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 stuff..ie 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.
