Some of you who are my friends on facebook or who read my other blog, will know about this already, but I can't put it off any longer.
The thing I never told you was that Missis lost her job just before Christmas. She told us in January that all was well and that they didn't have any financial worries whatsoever. I was quite taken aback as it never occurred to me that they would have.
And then last Monday she dropped the bombshell that they had decided to sell the farm. This means that we have to move. We are absolutely devastated, as you can imagine.
After a lot of to-ing and fro-ing we have taken the decision to sell the horses. We have worked out our finances and can't afford to keep them at livery. Once I've finished this I have to draw up For Sale adverts for both boys, which is something I never thought I'd have to do.
The problem with renting a property is that the majority of them don't take pets, so we are even struggling to keep Tessa, Purdy and Tigger, which is breaking my heart. My daughter will have Tessa if it comes to it.
I just wanted to say a huge thankyou to everyone who's followed my blog. I can't believe I've been writing it since 2009.
We've had a good life here, and it's been an adventure, not all of it good. I won't miss the mud and the snow and the tap not working, and to be honest, the hacking here isn't all that great. I am looking on the bright side and quite looking forward to living in a two-bed house instead of this tiny cottage and being able to craft. Oh yes, and going out to work.
Thanks for following my humble blog, I will come back to read your comments, but all that remains is for me to say goodbye and I wish all of you all the very best.
Thanks so much
