Seems a lifetime since we left Kent and arrived here in our new East Sussex nest.
Seems an age since I last posted, and I suppose it is!
I have been floating along since the last removal lorry shuddered out of sight Down the Lane.
I must thank you if you have been wondering where I had got to and have checked in on me only to see I was still absent. Here I am! All bright~ eyed and bushy haired ( It's rained a lot!)
I owe you a lovely long, beautifully scripted post and instead I find I am a little shy and stunted as I feel uncomfortable blabbering on about how wonderful things are ~ seems a bit self congratulatory and being British that isn't something that comes naturally!
Instead I am offering snapshots of the first things that have captured my imagination here at the New Lane, and as always probably too many.
I will say that I can feel reams of words on imaginary tape tumbling from the very top of my head, out they spill, words of wonder and joy at being here, out and out they flow ~ concentric circles that express happiness, peace and gratitude.
I still think Alexander Pope had it when he said
"Happy the man whose wish and care a few paternal acres bound, content to breathe his native air in his own ground. "
