I am quite looking forward to the enforced idleness!


I have been finding myself looking longingly & fondly at the tall town houses in town,,,,, the Georgian (esque) high ceiling ones, ones with just enough of a parking patch out front for a couple of cars and a mid size plot at the rear..... Donít think BB would ever willingly move

A year ago I would probably have thought the same as BB, and I know I shall miss the space and the village. The house is tiny as well. But it is quite an interesting exercise to distill your life down to what is genuinely important. Most of the stuff cluttering up this large house really is just stuff, and I think that letting it all go will be very liberating.

Five-ish acres. But it depends on the ground.
