It all began HERE 1000 posts away, Our New Life in the Country documented (when the Internet will allow me) on an almost daily basis.
The original newspaper clipping that lead us to this way of living and is framed for posterity on the living room wall. This Blog was to be a continuance of my 'Lavender's Blue...' Blog that talked about the day to day life in the 'smallest shop in Cumbria'. I had truly caught the Blogging Bug and decided we would chart every step of our great big adventure as it unfolded before us.
The adventure that was switching from town life to country life, with the excitement of getting new gadgets and big boys toys to make that life easier. The acquisition of more four footed and feathered family members, because, YES, all our animals and birds are members of this extended family.
And then one by one you started to follow our adventures, joining in with encouraging comments, asking questions that tested our new found knowledge (sometimes to the limits), but day by day, week by week with the help of family and friends and good Blogging buddies we have made this wonderful journey, and to celebrate the 1000th post I decided that there just had to be a giveaway. I'm not even sure what you will get yet, there will be handmade soaps and cards for sure, something suitably chickeny and something that will be picked from the house that sums up our journey.
All you have to do to be in with a chance is to be a regular reader or Follower on this Blog, and leave a comment saying which was your favourite ever post, you have 1000 to choose from. All of you who left us ideas for using up the Stew Packs will have your names included in the hat 3 times as Lovely Hubby liked ALL the suggestions, so we will be slowly using each and every recipe idea.
Thank you for taking the time to read each day and for being there with your words of help, encouragement, advice, commensense and expertise whenever we have needed it. Thank you for supporting us through the tough times, through hardships and sadness, and thank you for being there when it all goes right and you tell us what clever little sods we are, or how well we have done something, we need all the encouragement we can get as we are now moving into the final stages of Our New Life in the Country ...
..... we may have found our forever home!!
So hopefully even more exciting times ahead, which of course we hope you will continue to join us in.
Sue and Lovely Hubby xx
