Living The Dream - Well almost!

It's a funny thing Living the Dream!
On a good day life couldn't be sweeter.
On a bad day it's easy to loose sight of what we have.
We have had a few of those days recently, so we have been
making a conscious effort to explore the world we live in. 
This is our workshop on a sunny Saturday morning.
this is the back view. 
Early morning starts with the barn doors open
let the light flood in to the workshop
actually blinding me at some points. 
We have had some great Frosty mornings and we have taken to 
starting the day with a few long walks with Cadbury. 
The countryside around us is so beautiful you tend to take it 
for granted when you see it every day and your life is so busy.
It's nice sometimes to stop and give yourself time to look
and appreciate what we have. 
 Caddy was barking at the stone on the left I think he thought
it was a dog sat down?
 Taking time to watch the leaves falling off the trees
was a special moment.
and then coming across the swing hanging from a tree
was a real treat.

We have been making some pots for the showroom
as well. 
This 15" dish thrown by Me but decorated by Marion
makes a change from my usual plain slip decoration.

Spending time walking  is giving us space to think about next Year
and the changes we will be making,
more on that at a later stage when our Ideas are
more formed. 
But there is light at the end of the tunnel 
and at the end of a busy day 
We can sit back and relax in our Tiny cottage
which is 
Our Castle.

Very blessed indeed! This is the first thing I read this morning, sitting here with the cat in my lap and a good cup of British tea, perfect way to start the day! Lovely photos!

What a lovely way to greet the day! I live in a tourist destination; we often forget what a beautiful place we inhabit.
You look ready for the season....enjoy!

You are right. You do live in a beautiful area. So glad you are smart and see it despite the pots dancing before your eyes!
