Hello! How are you? It is good to catch up again after 5 whole weeks since our last coffee and chat. What is your drink of choice for today? I feel a slight fraud with the title of this post as I am actually sitting here sipping a cup of tea…
If we were having coffee right now, I would be bursting to tell you our big news. We are going to be on the move again – yep – finally! The roots we put down in Cumbria have turned out to be only surface deep. First planned stop is back ‘home’ to Tokyo. Where we go after and whether we do head there first remains to be seen. ‘When?’ I hear you ask. Fingers crossed October – November time this very year!
If we were having coffee right now, we would talk about how this time round it is going to be different. How this time we will not be storing our possessions. Well not many of them anyway. I would tell you how bogged down we felt after our travels by the sheer amount of stuff we have. How tied down and overwhelmed. So this time we are selling most of what we have accumulated in our 22 years together. If or when we settle again, we will start again. Start afresh. I would tell you to let me know if you have your eye on anything of ours!
If we were having coffee right now, I would sadly tell you I will be closing down Mr B’s Button Jamboree in the next few months. Partly because of our plans. Partly because I feel too stretched with the writing, blogging and microstock photography. I would share my disappointment that I never got to develop it in the way I planned and pride in actually doing it in the first place. It took more courage than I actually thought I had. I would tell you this may not be forever, we shall see.
If we were having coffee right now, I would finally give you my exciting news about my blog. I have chosen its new name and am now designing its new look! No you are not finding anything out about it now! Patience!
My! What a catch up this has been with all sorts of big news from me! I feel I have monopolised the conversation slightly…what’s your news? What have you been up to?
