My Little Piece of Heaven
2018 has been a fantastic summer, weather wise, up to now in the U.K. Day after day of wall to wall sunshine and hot temperatures. I know it’s not to every ones liking and the hardship it can cause to the livelihoods of farmers through the lack of rain water. However, I love it.
I Don’t Miss The City
Since uprooting and moving to Wales last year, I am blown away by the natural beauty that surrounds me. I was born and bred in a city environment which I loved, but since being here I look back at photographs and video of the hustle and bustle of daily life and wonder how on earth I did so. I’m not knocking city life, all I’m saying is it’s not for me yet it took so long to find out.
No Crowding Here
See, I’m not always jolly and daft, I sometimes have my serious side. I think I’ve been affected by the wonder of everything I’m seeing on a daily basis. Take the photograph I took at the top of this post. It was a walk I did with Wifey that starts about a mile from where we live. You can walk for 10 miles or 1 mile or not at all, but whatever you choose, all you can see are fields and hills and more fields. They say we live on a crowded island, but the only crowding I’ve seen here are sometimes too many sheep.
Red Kites and Swallows
Rush hour consists of a couple of cars on a bad day! You’re probably likely to see more cycles than cars. People we meet are always so friendly, they always want to chat and seem to take a genuine interest in our lives. It takes some getting used to after living in the city of millions and never knowing who your neighbours are. So many different species of birds, House Martins, Swallows, Swifts, Red Kites to name a few.
I Hope You Find Your Heaven
Another thing I’ve found since living here is the urge to get out of bed in the morning. I never felt that way in the city. Of course, I had to get up, but I never had the same enthusiasm that I have now. Life has never been so good for me. With all the troubles in the world at the moment, I appreciate how fortunate I am. I hope you find your little piece of heaven.
