“I just want to live in space”, I said to Becs, then realised how funny that sounded. ” No not that kind of space”. She knew what I meant.
We have been dreaming, plotting and scheming about self sufficiency and smallholdings for over five years. Ever since we took on a large wild allotment, (to be honest) I have talked of nothing else. 4 years ago Becky said “not yet”, 3 years ago…”I’m still not ready to move out of town”, 2 years ago..”maybe next year”……then….last year “oh, go on then, lets put the house on the market”.
So here we are a year later, almost completing on the purchase of a 1.8 acre plot.
