With the new……celebrating the holding pattern.

Well here I am in my new location and the biggest part of the plan has been achieved. A whole house cleared and my treasures now stored in a room. One more final push and in about a week’s time I move to my landing stage for the next six months.

Right now I am so grateful for the cushion of love and care that I have landed on. This is more than adjusting to a new way of living and working as I have changed amidst it all, so it is also about getting the hang of a re-vamped me.

Thanks to lovely friends this weekend I helped out at a James Bond Charity Ball, got to go out several times in borrowed ‘girlie’ clothes (yes me!!!), took a good walk in the sunshine around a large reservoir with perfect company and joined in a fun BBQ with much laughter and banter.

It is also the small things that count like proper food, sleep and the joy of locating the amenities in this new landscape without getting too seriously lost!

I am liking the look of this new chapter as there is a strong sense that it will herald a major change in my life. Bring it on……

    So pleased and excited for you, Jane! But I WILL miss your hens and ducks while we wait to hear of new forms of nature you will no doubt share with us at your new location! Praying for you and Em to have all joy and fulfillment and success beyond what even you can now foresee! Glad you had a fun weekend!

      Hello lovely Rose…this weekend I will be moving into the top floor of a townhouse where the middle floor is full of lovely young folk in ther twenties. Emily is living back with her Dad and his partner before she goes off to Uni. I will be working from home so during the day I can borrow their lovely old fashioned bulldog called Saint…Saint and I will be keeping each other company during the day. Love you J xxx

    Jane ~ Isn’t it wonderful?! Life is filled with change ~ endless opportunities to learn and grow. I am convinced that when we’re born, we’re each given a life book. Chapter by chapter, we live and learn… And when we’ve finished with one chapter, our spirit knows it’s time to turn the page to begin a new chapter. Even when we’re scared or think we’re not ready, our spirit knows different. And when we (finally) turn the page, even the ‘strange’ feels like home. Congratulations! ~ Love, Bobbie

    Sounds well thought out, with a large dose of listening to the universe… Best of luck!

      Thanks Peter..I did manage to stop my thoughts long enough to hear my ‘inner voice’. It’s good when you can get the head to be quiet long enough to hear yourself properly isn’t it? Sending love to you and yours xx
