Well I have had a very exciting and eventful week. I did not want to say too much on the last post, in case all did not go according to plan but it did! I have now sold my house, moved out of Marsden and and am off on my adventures.
All of this happened on Tues this week, by the previous Thursday I was living in a house with no furniture at all and having a last weekend with friends in the village. On Tuesday I handed over the keys to the new owners and set off with Kerry, who had very kindly come to collection me and my last possessions.
The first stop has been to Ellen’s, I have done some more volunteering at the food bank she works at, which has been really interesting again.
We then went to our first re-enactment event in 2 years at Evesham. It was absolutely brilliant, the weather was very kind, a few showers on the Friday night and Saturday afternoon, but we had a dry end to the weekend which made everyone very happy as no wet tents to sort. Here is my lovely little tent in the sun on Friday.
It was amazing to be back in a field, in the beer tent and round the campfire with my friends, we have kept in touch on Facebook but nothing beats being able to see them and there were lots of hugs.
I don’t have many pictures yet, I could not take any being in kit all weekend but there will be lots from our friends who come along to the events just to do all the photography so I will post again with those later this week.
There was a parade through the town, three battles, with horses which looked fantastic, and a we were at very nice event site between the abbey and the river. We did a photo shoot with one of our friends in the church, which was beautiful, and the vicar very kindly lit the candles for us to give it more atmosphere.
I am off tomorrow for three nights camping in my new little tent in Edale in the Peak District. I am planning a little walking but mainly a quiet and peaceful time reading, doing some knitting and recovering from all of the very busy sorting of the house and moving out.
I can’t quite believe that this has actually happened, it has been planned for so long but I am finally fully retired and free to go off and have all sorts of lovely adventures. I am so lucky and so thankful to everyone who has helped me in the last few months.
I hope that you have had a good weekend, take care, have fun, stay safe and I will see you soon. Thanks for visiting.

How wonderful that it is all going to plan. Congratulations and good luck with the next part of life. x
Thank you, I have had a wonderful start to it and hopefully that will continue!
So glad everything is finally sorted for you, and, from the outside at least, seems to have gone relatively smoothly. Always interesting to hear of your activities, and looking forward to seeing more of them, hope you’re going to carry on letting us join you. Best wishes x
It has gone very smoothly thank you, far more than previous moves, helps that I was not in an upward chain and they were first time buyers. I am going to carry on blogging, love sharing things and it is a great reminder for me as well, it has helped keep me sane during lockdowns remembering all the lovely things that I have been doing. Thanks for visiting and commenting.
Glad everything has gone well. I love your tent! Enjoy your adventures in Edale x
Thank you, Edale was great and I am looking forward to Devon next.
I am a fewmyears behind you, career-wise, and I am looking forward to my own Permanent Vacation. I hope I can fill my future leisure time with as much fun as you seem to be doing. You’re an inspiration!
Thanks and thank you very much for visiting and commenting.
Sending all good wishes for your next adventures!
