Well here we are, the final Blog post from Jointers Farm, next time you hear from me I will most likely be sat on the floor with my computer balanced precariously on a box in the freshly painted Office/Utility room at our new place. (You think I'd wait for the desk arrive to resume Blogging.......I'm a serious Blogger don't you know!!)
We've had some good chats you and me here in Blogworld from this farm, the story will continue to unfold as we put together our little self sufficient lifestyle at the new place, and we hope you will continue to follow us, you are very welcome.
What will I miss most from here.......... the open fields to walk the dogs, the solitude of living literally in the middle of nowhere with NO neighbours within sight, the pitch black nights with only the moon to illuminate the outside world......
.... the Cow-a-van.
Lovely Hubby says it's too rickety to tow to the new place.....sob, sob. It's been good, it was a food store for over a ton of pig food at a time (possibly explains the ricketyness then), it's been a shed for all those things that wouldn't fit in the shed! It's been a shelter for the chickens on wet days, they'd crowd underneath and keep dry, they hid from Nasty Mr Fox and his many chums there and it saved their lives over and over - clever girls.
But what will we take.......we will take our positive outlook on life, our new found skills learnt through the many trials and tribulations of starting out on this our new life in the country, in this tiny corner of Oxfordshire that we briefly called our own. We will take all our possessions, all our animals, all our chickens, all our energy and, most importantly, each other and all our love.
We will leave this house to settle itself ready for its new occupants and we will set forth to our new little patch of land in the county of Berkshire, join us there through the wonder of Blogland, as we set off on the next chapter of.... Our New Life in the Country.
