Living in a predominantly rural area has its down sides
I wanted to buy a relative some flowers yesterday and had to make a six mile round trip to do so. A round trip to the nearest quality theatre is just a tad over thirty miles and can you buy a quality birthday card anywhere nearby? Can you bloody well cocoa?
But this morning I know just why living here is worth the lack of amenities ...
As I was making the bed, I noticed William sat comfortably in the cottage window with his eyes closed in the warmth of the morning sun. Beyond is the field and then the far hills out towards Bodfari and Denbigh and the view, which we sometimes take for granted, is better than anything Hollywood could dream up and I stopped for a while , pillow in hand, to admire the countryside that we see every day of our lives.
It's a reminder of just why we picked the cottage in the first place. Not for it's size, not for it's dodgy plumbing....but for its scenery
