I love writing the date like that. It reminds me of first learning to write the date and when I was taught how to write letters properly. As in letters to people, with your own address at the top right etc. I’ve got a feeling it was probably my mum that taught me that. Useful stuff.

Anyway, hi 👋

I’ve been a bit quiet recently, it’s just not felt quite right to write for a couple of weeks. I had no inclination unusually, but that is fine.

There’s been quite a lot on my mind, what’s new? I hear you say, and yes, you’d have a point. Anyway, hurrying along..

One of the main things I like about being here (and anywhere really) is the travelling around. I love driving and seeing new places and just the actual journey. I find it quite relaxing and exciting. Plus, just about all the journeys here look like this:

plus, the cottage can get a little claustrophobic at the moment at times, as we’re still just mainly in one room for living during the day. So I try and get out quite a bit. It is temporary and we make the best of it we can.. but tempers can be a little frayed occasionally…we went to the toy shop in Sligo yesterday, it was great. The journey takes you by Lough Gill and it’s really beautiful with woods and hills all around.

Chris has finished tiling the floor of what we’re calling the dining room:

so we now need to clean up, get the walls ready and paint.

‘This is the living room:

And this:

still, there are whole families who live in one room places or even in tents, so Thankyou Lord, for a home.

Not much else to write at the moment, apart from I’m still considering homeschooling.. that may be a separate post at a later date… and God is good.. He is always there throughout everything. Culture shock included… (that is something I was made aware of this weekend and is very interesting). Homework- Look it up.

Ta ra!
