It is killing me not to be able to post photos yet! We are still in transition and the wireless system at our temporary flat doesn't like our laptop so I make a trip downtown to the Everyman theatre which has an internet cafe and check my emails but it doesn't let you do much else.
We have found a house to rent which comes available the end of September. It will be nice to have my "stuff" around again. In the craziness of repacking a lot of my sewing essentials got left behind...after seeing the price of fabric here I should have ditched the shampoo instead of the box of thread!
I love the village we are staying in...Prestbury. It is said to be the most haunted one in England (and that is saying something!) but we haven't had the excitement yet. There are three pubs within walking distance each with a very different personality. So far my favorite is the little black and white Tudor one called The Pough. I still get excited each morning when I walk the dog and look at all the thatched roof cottages and the neat cotswold stone houses. I guess it will wear off but not anytime soon I hope!
The gardens here are "brillant" (my new favorite British saying!) I've started sketching an appllique quilt to represent all of the neat buildings and flowers I've seen since getting here....now I just need my stash!!!!
I've missed being able to access the blog and I have tons of catching up to do...my silly cafe meter however tells me I only have 9 minutes left....
