Tuesday… Mid March!!!

House 1Oh dear, I hadn’t realised just how quickly time has passed and just how long it has been since I last wrote here! And this post is partly prompted by an e-mail from my Honorary Aunt, Eileen, in New Zealand! (Note to self – must come out there for a visit!)House 2

I have had a very busy few weeks since moving into my new house. Apart from the logistical effort of moving in, and sorting out all the administration from that, I was also under a tight deadline to complete my dissertation for mid February. I did meet that deadline, although I don’t know if the quality or quantity is good enough to get a pass mark – house moves, divorce and dissertations do not sit well together 🙂House 3

However I am pleased with my house, it might be small, but it feels comfortable, and I am looking forward to seeing what comes up in the garden in the spring.
On the personal front the divorce proceedings are… well, proceeding, but it is clear that far from enjoying retirement, I will have to find work as I am likely to lose a significant part of my income, investments and savings.House 4

Healthwise all seems to be OK, although my eyes seem to be very dry, and the cataract problems are continuing. Fortunately not stopping me from driving, but something that will need to be fixed sooner rather than later.

On the plus side, I have had a few days away in Switzerland for a much needed break, and I am looking forward to a diving expedition down to Cornwall for a few days in April.

Meanwhile I have posted a couple of photos of my new house, taken before and just after the move.

So, a few setbacks and a few hurdles still to overcome, but I have beaten worse than this, so… Onwards and Upwards!

    I have fond memories of completing my master’s dissertation. No clean crockery in the house …. but deadline met.

    Good luck with the eyes.

    Congratulations on your house move 🙂

    Nice shaped house, well plaxced garage for parking too, and a wall in the garden from the garage.

    Where’s the sun? ( idon’t mean in the pictures.. I mean generally? does it bathe that garage wall in summer? If so…. that gravel is gonna need pots all over it… maybe time to get some peas planted mate in grow bags.. you KNOW you want fresh peas 🙂
