we've been a bit busy...

A Blue Moon to say goodbye to a home
and farewell to friends
The first fire in the new home
fresh firewood?!







The Shed is up!!
First visitors
going for a walk in Birmingham
A view from the Lickey Hills
The Oily One at work with a shaft driven bike
waiting for the Tour of Britain on Caerffili Mountain  ....and how is this for a bike rack?!!
The MD and Family...
The uplift at Cwmcarn for the downhill run
we're in the queue too....
lets go ride!!  Balance bikes are fun!!




The Pirate is busy training and gardening-we're making my allotment fit to hand over to the next tenant and choosing plants to keep.
We've had a day off ride together too.

I've signed on as unemployed..the pottery in St.Fagans closes at the end of the month, gardening and cleaning work has disappeared and my sales are well down as is my energy.  
The best thing to do when banging one's head against a wall....is to stop!!

There is so much positive stuff going on in your life that the negative bits can be glossed over - rest your creative self and when you are ready to start again it will all return with vengeance! Good luck and go well!

Maybe it's meant to be and you would benefit from the break.
Loving those twins!!

A new start, with a new home and a piratew. Once you energy recharges, all will come together. Lois from Ontario

Just thought I would stop by.....to see how your move is going. Unfortunately, I haven't followed each of your posts...but I gather you are going back to South Wales....not sure though. We are in the process of leaving Montana as well....bitter sweet...eh??

Lovely fire! Parts of my tiny front yard is so damp & shady that it grows mushrooms...so I feel for the 'fresh' lumber. There are many around these parts that register as 'seasonally unemployed'...construction workers, farm help & such. It you feel the need to knock a wall down, use a sledge hammer...it goes a lot faster. ;)

I am sure you will enjoy your upcoming visit. Te Aroha is the opposite side of Auckland to us but if you happen to be in Whangarei you are most welcome - would love to catch up with you.

Nothing like a move to shake out the cobwebs, and leave one exhausted. Good for you, knowing when to yell uncle and step back. Enjoy.

we're in South Wales for The Pirate to train on the velodromes here and to tidy and sort things here a little.
I'd hoped for a month's part-time work too but that disappeared

Haven't heard of Willis Bay and just googled it but came up with nothing so don't know how far from here it is. May be on the Coromandel peninsular.
