Tired Toes

What beautiful weather we are having at the moment. Soooo lovely to see the sun after it's long absence.

It has been my weekend to work. I'm all done in. Challenging times indeed.

Here are a couple of photos from our dog walk yesterday.



We had a lovely stroll along the Tarka Trail, followed by a pub lunch...yum.

For those in the know.....the Hockings vans are out! Hockings are the famous locally made ice cream makers who only sell from their vans or where they make it in Appledore. Wide hips are good!

The Long Road to Winters End

Our road to Winters End which we're still on has been very long. Twenty five years to be precise.
It has been emotional, often painful, with sharp corners and many hills to climb. More than once we have thought we were in sight of our 'home', and more than once our dreams have been cruelly smashed before us.
Even though I now believe we are on the final track, I find it very difficult to come to terms with what has been our misfortune all these years. Since marrying we have lived in three rented properties. Each time supposedly only for a short while. The years gone by tell a different story, one that hopefully little by little I will come to terms with, but as I've said, it has been a painful journey.

To the future then.
