…and Suddenly… London to Sussex :-)

Time to move on – image from

A london girl, born and bread.

I love London, the ex bedsit wreck I took on, which had been unloved & uninhabited for the previous 2 years before I bought it, and left as a beautiful, calm home with a glorious garden – an oasis of productivity, interest, wildlife and beauty in the heart of the capital.

But time moves on, and it was time to turn the page on the next chapter of life.

Grasping hope, faith and optimism in both hands, it was time to step into the next chapter and look ahead;

Move out of your comfort zone

you can only grow

if you are willing to feel awkward

and uncomfortable

when you try something new

– Brian Tracey

And so we did. And now we love West Sussex, the opportunity to transform The Oaks from an ugly 1980s space station to a much loved home, our own retreat to enjoy and share with others; to tame the acres of ‘nettle patch’ and give it the opportunity to house livestock; to wage war against the seven foot nettles that had taken over the garden, obliterating views and pathways, and win that war… and others.

And to share the wonderful space that we have created with others.  🙂 E
