from cider to cyber
So to the land our hearts we give
Till the sure magic strike,
And Memory, Use, and Love make live
Us and our fields alike—
That deeper than our speech and thought,
Beyond our reason’s sway,
Clay of the pit whence we were wrought
Yearns to its fellow-clay.

|Update: Now regularly posting on my new blog Niki Fretwell.
On June 29th, my blog was 9 years old.
Also on June 29th we began a rather epic 4 day move to our new home...
As anyone who has moved house will know, it is a stressful process. We have been through several ups and downs over the past year, but finally the moving date was set and we hardly dare breath until the completion phone calls were made...
All our worldly good were packed onto a large lorry and trailer and finally after a day and a half, The Stone House lay bare...
It has been a happy family home for us all, but times change and now it's just hubby and me, we are ready for a new challenge...
So as my blog reaches its natural end, I'd just like to thank all who have visited over the past 9 years. It has been a great experience to keep my blog journal and it has been wonderful to share over 1200 post with you.
I am overjoyed to say that we have now moved-in to our dream home down a narrow little lane, in peaceful, rural Devon, (something we have always hoped and yearned for)...A bit of a project, but one we wholeheartedly embrace...
A new and more private lifestyle awaits and so after having the internet connected to our home today, I bid you farewell from my blog.
Love Niki xx
