Despite all this


- missing Ned terribly

- having available only the clothes I packed for early September weather

- not sleeping very well

- feeling a little bit anxious about how long the house is taking to go through (though Mum says it’s not, actually, long, and she’s right, I know, but it feels looooooong)

- not being able to find anything in my Mum’s kitchen cupboards

- having a a big List Of things That Aren’t Worth Doing Until We’ve Actually Properly Moved

- missing my friends in London, especially Lou, Natalie and Scarlet, who I saw such a lot of, and my beloved godchildren

- not quite being able to get my head around having to drive anywhere

I am really, really settled and happy. So are Alan and Joy.

(I’d suggest you all move to Northumberland too but Northumbrians keep telling me off for telling you how lovely and peaceful and deserted it is here, in case you do.)

    Well, I already live here – moved here last December – and love it too. It took me a while to get used to the distances between places!

    I know what you mean! I guess it will all get a bit easier when I can drive…
