This frightens me

Leaving behind a community of people I know and trust. Leaving behind this beautiful countryside and landscape that we discover daily.






This, a cool spot on the River Ouzel I never knew of before. I've lived less than ten miles from here for over twenty years and we discovered it today. The home ed kids go pond dipping, find summer trawling crayfish, tight clamped shells, willow roots and river banks.

I don't want to leave this behind. But I want to explore new places too. And, somewhere, there is a husband to find.

Repeat after me 'It will be fine, we can do this, it is not forever'! Then, when you are settled-ish, let me know if you will make it over here too ;-)

There are all these kinds of places to find and explore in the new place. You are a self sufficient and ingenious woman. You will be fine.

There has been a whiff of a possibility of Australia in the air for us, not certain in any way but needing checking out. Possibilities, both terrifying and compelling!

sharon, if we are wandering near your side of aus, you can be sure i'll be in touch!

you are right nora. dig is enthusiastic about the mountains and the beach and the hikes and the caves...

one of the great things about the home ed lifestyle maire is how it helps us imagine different ways of living. once we dump the school hours, options just seem to open, don't they?
