A Castle in the Sky

In March 2013, after years of talking about it we eventually sell up and move out of the city with our 2 year old, Gracie. We both grew up in the countryside and this is what we want for our daughter. So we swap a 2 bed flat in London for a small country pile on the west coast of Scotland that needs a lot of work. I've done a bit of interior design and my partner, Ed has a good knowledge of the outdoors – but we're on a tight budget and we've both got a lot to learn. It's a life time's project and this is a record of our adventure…

Meeting Mr C (Mar 16)

Leave a comment

Ed’s just taken Gracie up to meet our new neighbour Mr C, the farmer, whose farmhouse sits on the hill behind us and whose fields surround us. They were invited in for a cup of tea and a chin wag.

Ed tells me that Mr C’s quite busy up there – with motocross in one of his fields on a Wednesday, clay pigeon shooting on a Thursday and a rave in their barn every Friday night.

I fell for this of course – but luckily Ed’s a bit less gullible. Sounds cheeky. I’m looking forward to meeting him.
