House hunting

Okay, we didn't plan to move yet (only been here over 6 months so it's abit silly isn't it) but we have just been to see a house. It's georgeous. You have to walk through a small field with a horse in it to get to it, you overlook an apple orchard at the back and a cherry orchard at the front, and it has bags of character. Dilemma. The rooms are a tad small, and I've got used to having lots of room, which is still overflowing with all my stuff. Aaaah. What am I going to do! Lots of blog candy........I've enough to keep that one going for a year I recon. And what about my birdies, apparently once you have started feeding them you can't stop as they come to rely on you. In the winter a blue tit loses a percentage of his body weight at night, so in the day he will fly to a guarenteed food source, if the food isn't there he may die before he can find something to eat. Can I move with that on my concience. I know, they are wild birds, they will be okay, but I'll miss them. Think I've developed attachment problems to the birds. There's no hope.

Anyhow, Nicky has left it in my hands. We need to write a list on the pro's and cons and try not to just follow our hearts. It has open fires, no central heating, no sky! What an adventure......

Have you all had a nose at Dawn's blog. She's putting me to shame and has done loads more postings than me! Have a look at the photo's of her doggies, they are beautiful. You shouldn't have favourites, but Charlie is mine. It's a great photo of Dawn and Jerry as well. Jerry great, we once went to America with Dawn to one of the HIA shows and had such a laugh, me and Jerry went round one of the stands dragging our feet along the floor to build up our static. We shuffled our way up to Dawn (who was having a very serious business type chat), and zapped her. We obviously found the whole thing hilarious - poor Dawn, we were like big kids. Brilliant fun.

Anyway, need to get some work done don't I (or dream about our house in the country - I could learn to ride horses!!) aaaahhhhhh.

Go with your heart Leonie. You just need to leave a trail of bird food to your new house and the birds will follow you! ;-)

Does it have a web link facility? Couldn't bear not to hear from you. Debsg had the answer to the bird problem so 'follow your instincts' instead. Your decision will be the right one.xxxxxxxxxxx

I believe in fate Leonie and instinct. Go with what you feel is right and it will be perfect. The birds will follow you! and if you need to get rid of some blog candy then your blogging girls would be more than happy to take it off your hands! xx

Ha ha...I'm just the same about our little wild birds, squirrels and fox, and I come up with all sorts of home made devices to keep them going if we are going to be away for a few days! Maybe, if you decide on the move, you could have it in writing that the new people have got to keep on feeding them or they lose the house! That horse will be very happy to see you bringing him carrots, apples and polo mints anyway!Just do what feels right and everything else will fall into place. Lindsay x
