New beginnings!

Today I am feeling tired and my body is aching all over as the last two weeks have been spent moving house.

While it gave me a real thrill to move into an empty space, with its light and shadows and openness we have now actually moved it with all our boxes and I am feeling weighed down again. Our move was going really smoothly then we rented Robin’s Nest and suddenly everything had to be done NOW instead of over time. It was a mad rush to get all our belonging moved out of one house and into the next and the result is aching backs, legs and heads! Argh!

I was feeling over whelmed just a couple of days ago thinking I would never be ready for today but we worked hard and miracles happen…

This was my view this morning looking up to Fox-Amphoux and I feel so lucky to be alive! This morning my very first guests arrive in Robin’s Nest and I feel excited and a little nervous.

I know now from experience that it is often in moments of turmoil that great new beginning develop and although I am tired, sitting here surrounded by boxes to unpack, with no kitchen yet so no food planning and late for my next deadline,  I somehow feel at peace with myself.

Maybe it’s because I am sitting here in paradise… surrounded by trees with the wind whistling through the leaves and the sun rising above the alpes. Maybe it’s because Eric (whom I fondly call BB) has begun working again on our new kitchen. Maybe it’s because my eldest son had his first flight yesterday as BA Staff, or my youngest son’s visit to help with our move or maybe because my Mum arrives in a couple of days…

Whatever it is I can see the light and I am feeling positive that this is just the beginning all over again …
