House hunting...

Well house hunting has not turned out how I thought it would go – but then again does life?? :-) In answer to some of your questions, I’ve decided home is where my lovely boys are and we can live a sustainable life wherever we end up settling. It’s not about size, space or location so much as what we want to do and how we want to live our lives.

Unfortunately we were outbid on the lovely cottage we found and so far everything else has ended up having structural issues or been far too moldy.  But I think property ebbs and floes…before we sold our house I saw plenty we could buy. Of course, now we can, there’s not too much around LOL.

So for now I’m content dreaming – looking at back issues of Country Living, being inspired by fabrics and colours and seasons as I picture how our new house will look, feeling the crafty urge to create new things to add to our current transitional living spaces as well as make a new home.

As this sticker says - enjoy the journey. I was in such a rush to buy our next house that I've just stressed my poor little brain out. So for now I'm making time for peace, laughter and joy in the process, however long it might take.


  1. Something will come along when you least expect it. Just keep an open mind and keep looking.

  2. I love that quote.

    It would have to be one of the hardest things in life, I think, looking for a home to buy... good luck, hope that it happens as it's supposed to, and you get your dream house soon...
