I know it sounds strange. It might help to explain that collecting the mail is about a fifteen minute round trip walk. But when we go as a family it can often take much longer. That’s because it is such a beautiful walk, even now when the trees have dropped all their leaves. We love to stop and see what bulbs have bloomed, if there are any roses left, if the sheep are in the paddock. Sometimes the neighbour’s cows come over to say, “Hello,” which is always a cause for excitement for my daughter. We often get back and just sit on the porch for a while, taking a moment to look at the wonderful little part of the world we live in. So happy to have made the move.
