I interrupt this time out to bring you................

......an update........the header pic sort of summed up my mood this morning when I arrived at the house to meet the furniture removal crew....the sky was grey and it was raining......and as I surveyed the product of the past couple of week's work......the contents of the house packed into boxes and stacked in a couple of rooms it rained a little bit in my heart......but.........no time to dwell on what has gone.....now is the time to look to the future......if someone had told me in January that in three months time I would be single again ....have sold the house and bought another one I would never have believed them....but that is exactly what has transpired!  It has been a roller coaster ride in that time.....but all being well the house settlements will go thru on Friday and the truck that took all my stuff away today will be at my new house to bring it all back so I can start the unpacking .......not so onerous as packing I don't think....and way more exciting!  I will be back with pics and a longer post next week...fingers crossed the settlement all goes to plan...roll on Friday I say!  I will leave you with a couple of pics I took in the garden today......

This little guy was enjoying his lunch - and had shelter from the rain..................





'til next time..........................Lorraine

Unpacking is so much easier, in fact I equate it to opening a whole lot of presents as sometimes you find things you haven't seen for ages and you had forgotten about. Only a little rain here.
Take care.

Yay for new beginnings... even if you didn't expect them. Hope the move goes well and that the unpacking can be just as fun as the packing! (I didn't have fun either way!!) Thinking of you. :)
