3 years on ..

Three years ago today we packed my life into a Luton van and moved it, and me, from literally two minutes from Gatwick Airport to my quiet little cottage in the Fens. I'd never lived more than fifteen miles from where I was born so it was both a psychological wrench as well as a physical move. Three years on I'm starting to feel settled. Some of the rooms have been decorated, I've made my mark on the place and it's feeling more like home.
Although I affectionately refer to Wisbech as the arse end of nowhere, it's a nice enough place despite having absolutely dire public transport, and I'm far enough away from the town to be able to say I don't actually live there.
I liked my old house, but who's to say I wouldn't have left it one day anyway? So, the page was turned, I started a new chapter, and I think I've made a pretty good start so far.
Sometimes I think I should have achieved more by now, but being here on my own 'tomorrow' seems as good a day as any to do anything. If anyone else needs or wants anything done, I'm there and it's done before they've had time to draw breath .. but when it's something for myself I lack motivation.
Maybe next year I'll get the greenhouse built
