Living with kindred spirits, in nature and people

Hello dear visitor, it’s been a while, since I published a journal about my new life in Britain. Now, at the start of March 2017, after an adventurous period of house hunting, with bizarre encounters and awkward tribulations, I’ve found a home in the South of Devon:  23 Furze Road  TQ 95 YE TOTNES Devon UK

It seems we’re kindred spirits sharing a home and interests like bee keeping, gardening, natural remedies and good food. All of us are comical in our ways and so we laugh in between the grumbles, dancing our dance and seemingly at ease with stepping onto each other’s toes, once in a while. (not so at ease as it turns out in practice).

The backgarden with a grass-patch, is offered to me for the creation of a vegetable garden and flowers. The sun is in the home all day round and the views are far. Where I am I’m on a high place, very safe from flooding! Close to the sea and to Dartmoor, two goodies in one bag. Hello to you in the image below!

This house hunting has been an experience that teaches me how important it is to enjoy a reasonable comfortable home, a place you can call your own space where you feel happy about, returning after a long day outdoors.

After moving 3 times in one year I’m looking forward to a time of rest, enjoying the first year of my retirement without a worry in the world and the relief that my time is mine. What better time of year than finding my feet and leaving footsteps in this landscape of rolling hills! March and April are the months I enjoyed living in Totnes.
