Our beloved farm, for nearly 18 years our home and shelter, is sold. Within the day it was on the market and the first visitors to view it, they fell in love with it and closed the deal at the asking price the same day. There are now a lot of loosers out there...
I cannot believe how things accelerate and in a speed that is scary. However, a young, very enthousiastic, very happy family is keen to move in as quick as possible and this holds now some challenges to EG--- moving all the cars and all the things we don't want to be without in our new home.
The most wonderful moments were spent in our little paradise and we will miss it dearly. But, thankfully we know where we will end up and are looking forward to start afresh in our Old Vicarage in Wild West Wales,
The hard work of the last weeks is accomplished and instead of having plenty of strangers and noisy visitors wandering around our place, it is done and dusted and everybody is happy. Ok, the young family is perhaps a bit more happy than EG and myself right now, but it all feels right. They will grow into the place, they love the pond, they love the old stones and they appreciate all the hard work which was done to realize the stunning result.
On one hand, I feel like burying an old friend and on the other hand I feel like handing over the flame to a next generation. A lovely young family with a dream, the appreciation of generations of hard work to keep the place alive and the desire to give their children the best possible start in the most natural environment. As they said in their own words, 'we are a very happy family and to complete our happiness, we needed a happy house with space'. They were searching for this place for the last two years. Heyho.
