And back again.

We’re going through the motions here these days. I think my fasting and cleanse (aka stomach flu) is passing finally and I’m starting to be able to eat again. It’s slow getting energy though to see any real progress throughout the days. I unpack a little, make meals, go for walks, sit and look at our new views, read books, listen to the young eagles soar so near outside our house.

The camera I bought has taken longer than I’d have liked it to to get here. I’m expecting it this week but I find myself hesitating to take any pictures, knowing that soon the pictures I’ll be taking will be sharper.

I’m looking forward to more living… I want to be loving this living.

    It takes time to settle in especially after a long journey and when you are not feeling well. Take care of yourself. x

    oh, it is so hard to get the energy to move in sometimes – we’ve moved a lot in the last few years, and if my heart is not 100% in it, it can take so long – plus the flu? i’m thinking of you. and the eagles must help…

    Oh, ugh…stomach flu on top of a move…that must have been horrible. I hope you’re right as rain again soon.

    Glad you’re starting to feel better.

    Where are the hop-scotch pictures taken from? One of your windows at home?

    I’m glad you’re feeling better. We still have unpacked boxes from last time we moved. It’s hard sometimes. I can’t wait for you to get your new camera and to see some pictures of your new place!

    Hey Annie, that’s tough adding a dicky tum into the aftermath of such a huge upheaval. Poor you.. Hope it is cleared up now and you feel better.

    It’s really hard when you feel like you should be enjoying life more than you are. You’ve got a big job on your hands there, in every respect, and perhaps being a bit detached from it for a while is a good coping mechanism, even if you feel a bit lacklustre compared to normal?…

    “Going through the motions” describes how I’ve been feeling at the moment. It’s not quite as strong as dissatisfaction for me, just a dull sense that there could be more joy in my life. I just can’t quite muster it somehow.

    I have been thinking of you this last couple of weeks and sending lots of love for you all. I’m so glad you’re safely there in your new home. Like your other chums I felt really emotional reading your account of the build up to the move and the journey, and reading this post also made me feel a bit teary. I can imagine the loss of the familiar being very unsettling. I know you’ll find your groove there in time.

    Lots of love Sarah x
