When You Can't See The Woods.....

For the trees, then I guess you need a good chainsaw! And the same goes for life, it has a habit of getting muddled and things inevitably get in the way. Lately I've been clearing some of these things and already my life feels simpler, more secure and much more positive.

It's a mini shake up, a chance to get back on track and a start to cutting down on clutter (emotional and material) that should help me focus on the more important things. This year is certainly shaping up to be interesting and I won't give too much away yet, you'll just have to keep reading!

Over the last week or so (or since I last updated here) the weather hasn't been too good. We had 2 lovely sunny days but most of the time it's been damp and foggy, no surprise really since it is winter. I'm looking forward to spring though and a chance to get outside for most of the day. The days are getting longer here already which is great and soon the spring bulbs will be showing themselves. Soon the trees will be green and our little world will be much more colourful. Then I'll be out with the camera again and brightening this blog up too :)


  1. Much of a sameness here weather wise, although we did have a snow shower yesterday. Being a hoarder, I find decluttering really hard, but I can't take it all with me to Bulgaria. What do you think are the essentials to keep? We are looking to the NE at the moment, but won't really be able to tell until we have been out to take a looksie.

  2. Hi Jak, it's snowing here now altough not that hard and so far it's not laying.

    Essentials to keep for the move to Bulgaria are very much a personal thing. But to be totally honest if I had to do it again I wouldn't bring much at all. We spent money transporting things over that have barely been used in 3 years and that we could have replaced here quite easily.

    If we ever move again I will sell everything rather than move it and just leave with clothes and a few keepsakes.

    Garden tools are worth bringing because the quality of spades etc is not great, things like strimmers and chainsaws can be bought here and in some cases cheaper than the UK. Bedding is also worth bringing if you are bringing a UK sized bed.

    You're more than welcome to stay in our little bungalow if you'd like to explore around the Veliko Tarnovo area.
