Hello, welcome and huge big waves if you've found your way over here from my old blog 'Tabiboo'.
Also 'thank you' for all your lovely words over the past few weeks. You're faith in me has been such a comfort and reassurance to continue in the things that I love to do and the way that I like to do it.
Being honest, I did have a little wobbly a few weeks back about stepping away completely. The whys and the where's, the going about and continuing with things had my mind in such a muddle, but you've helped me to get over that by just popping in, saying 'hello' and 'we'll still be here...no matter how long it takes'.
I won't lie to you - these past six months have been a hideous worry. Without breaking confidences I can't go into it too much. But I can say we've had an enormous amount to deal with. Worries from 'the most' formidable and hideous disease to job concerns, lawyers, moving, packing and unpacking - my feet feel like they haven't touched the ground since the end of the Summer (last year).
But things are settling now and I'm so happy to be here.
So......! I've been puzzling how to categorize these last few months without spending the next few weeks blogging on a daily basis, filling this space with photo (and word) overload. And also wanting to move forward swiftly, not dwell on the 'what's been'.
I came to the conclusion the best thing to do was to pull all the pictures from my phone - some you may of seen already. This follows the path from February when we visited the Derbyshire Dales and made the decision to move, putting our house on the market, a birthday treat in London at the beginning of April, the last few weeks we spent living in Broadstairs - including our last evening with a sunset over the beach - to packing, moving and being here.
So here goes......
And this is the here and now.
Right up to date and so looking forward to starting afresh.
Hello and welcome....I hope you'll continue this journey with me.
