Tomorrow we say goodbye to our happy little house on Teapot Street and move to a new (bigger…) house. Even though I know it’s the right decision and I’m very excited about New House, I’m still sad to leave the cottage. We’ve been so happy there over the last 4 and a half years. It’s seen us through some big life events. Moving into the cottage was the first time I’d ever lived by myself. It was the first time I’d owned a home. It’s also the home my mum helped me choose before she died. It’s the first home Ross & I have shared, the home we got engaged and married from. Buddy was a youngster there, we learnt DIY there, the swallows nested there, we planted a tree there… It has been a happy happy home and it is a sweet farewell.
These are some of the many drawings I’ve done of the surrounding countryside in and around the village.
