Finally, I have moved into my new home.
Here is just a little post with some photos for you to enjoy.
I now live in a village called Bugle, near St Austell in the stunning county of Cornwall, right at the bottom of the UK.
Bugle is a small village that grew up around the china clay industry and is very near to the Eden project and some beautiful beaches.
It has been quite a journey to get here, but the funny thing is you always end up where you are meant to be.
When I first started looking for my new home I wanted to be on the south coast of Cornwall, but there was just nothing in my price range, then I was told about a new development over on the north coast, very near to Tintagel, which is one of my favourite places in the world.
Unfortunately, that was not to be, and just as well as the information I was given was not correct and had I moved there I would have had a world of trouble, so I know one of my Angels was looking out for me.
I then found another home, very near to where I am now, but again so much hassle and people not being honest about the situation.
Finally, we sold Mum’s house and I moved here on the 9th November.
It is very quiet, which is how I like it. I have some lovely neighbours, although I have not met all of them yet. But the 3rd or 4th day after I moved in, there was a knock at the door and a lady said, “hi, I’ve come to meet your Westie” well as you can guess Mr J was at the door with me and put on his best behaviour, as I was giggling that he seems to be the new star of the show.
The great thing is this neighbour has offered to look after Mr J if I go away or have to go out for the day, so that was one issue sorted straight away.
I am mostly unpacked, and we have settled into a wonderful daily routine.
We have been exploring some of the local places to walk and our favourite place is Par Sands Beach, it is around 15 minutes’ drive, with an awesome view of St Austell Bay as we drive down the hill.
Mr J can run around, off the lead, and play with the other dogs on the beach, he has a new waterproof jacket and a new harness and lead, so he does not get mistaken for a girl anymore.
There is a little stream near the cliffs at one end of the beach, with a little waterfall inside the rocks, there are also caves to explore at low tide. The beach is fine soft sand which he loves to roll in.
I have plans to refit the kitchen and the bathroom, and to have a little work done in the garden, which is very small. But that is all still in the planning stage, so next year I will get that work done and start to redecorate my new home.
My first visitors will be with me over Christmas, my sister Mary and her husband, which will be wonderful. And hopefully we will have some nice weather so that I can take them to one of my favourite spots in Cornwall, St Nectans Glen.
As you can see the energy is amazing and magical in the glen.
That’s all for now folks.
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Peaceful New Year.
