New beginnings

Well. Since I last blogged a lot has happened. We have moved house, our son got married, our daughter had some major surgery (10 days before the wedding!) and I am working my notice and taking early retirement. Whew!
This is our new home, this picture makes it look much bigger than it really is, trick of the camera! It shows the garden though and there is a rough bit of ground behind me which I am euphemistically calling a "wild garden". It is pretty wild  but has a lot of life in it already.
This picture was taken in early May and its much taller now. I have seen Slow worms, several butterfly's, masses of insects and a dead hedgehog! 
The house is on the edge of a small Dorset market town, busier at the moment because its holiday season. We have heard a Cuckoo from the garden, admitted it was quite a distance away but I heard it, I also can hear cows in a field up the road....magic! Very different from our last home which was in the middle of town.
The wedding was beautiful and we gained a lovely daughter-in-law, on a lovely sunny day at the end of March.
Our daughter thankfully well enough to do the reading at the wedding supported by her other brother.
I hope to get back to blogging again, with new walks and wildlife stuff, retirement looms although I am calling it a career change to full time housekeeper and head gardener 😄
