Finally, some good news!

We’ve been having a bit of a roller-coaster of a ride for the past 2 or 3 months, but finally I feel able to share at least some of what’s been happening.

Aside from a few family things, the poet has been looking for a new job since early March and this has taken up quite a lot of our spare time.

At almost the same time we received notice on our lovely house due to the owner wanting to sell – and we didn’t want to buy (it needs too much doing to it but is listed, so that restricts what you can actually do …). But that meant even more precious time was taken up house-hunting.

Admittedly, where we live does depend a lot on where the poet works, which is why we’re currently renting. But we could have done without it at this time. It would have been much nicer if it happened once he was settled.

During this time, we did manage 2 short camping trips and we still went on a couple of walks, including another to Bempton Cliffs to see the puffins (we saw 4, so will be going again just as soon as we can).

Some good news, though … tomorrow (Wednesday) the poet starts his new job, and today we went in and applied for what will hopefully be our next home. It looks like we’ll be exchanging cows for peacocks, ducks and sheep. 🙂 And, of course, we have another camping trip booked for the late May bank holiday weekend.

So hopefully, all the planets are aligning again and things will start to settle again. We want to run the 2 properties in tandem so that the next house is as ready as we can make it before we officially move in. And as that house is bigger than this house, that means new furniture to buy!

Happy days. 😀
