Saturday 30th May marked the 1st anniversary of Hal, Quincey and I moving to Shebbear.

Where did that year go?

Ripley and the cats joined us a few days later, and the horses cane at the beginning of July.

In many ways the last 12 months have flown by, yet it also feels like we’ve always been here.

True, the stables haven’t been built yet, we still have a house full of boxes, and the normal contents of the garage are spread throughout the house, but we’ve also achieved a massive amount. We’ve learned a lot about ourselves, and even more about the vagaries of the planning regulations. . We know and understand Magnum and Sapphire far better than we ever did before. Hal’s confidence and riding ability have come on in leaps and bounds. We’ve also met a lot of lovely people.

I love living here!

Here’s to the next 12 month 😎
