House hunting and weekend travels..............

The week is almost over and my legal temp assignment now ended. As we now have to work hard at finding a new home to move mid April there is plenty to do.
This past weekend we visited some of the small villages where there are houses to rent. Did not find anything really suitable and in the villages that we really loved which are closer to Huntingdon, rentals are very high so the next few days and weeks are going to be spent doing some hectic house hunting. 
I have discovered some wonderful old churches in a few villages, most of them a lot smaller than those in France but just as beautiful. A lot of them are now sold and turned into houses, drive past one each morning on my way to work which is for sale for some £500 000!! already converted of course. The cost of heating a building like that must be very high but they would make an amazing home. This is one church we spotted from the highway and which I just had to find. Sad to discover that is was on a private estate and I could not get closer to have a look inside but it one of the prettiest smaller churches I have seen so far in England.


There have been some nice sunny days this past week and the sun worshipping cats spend the day spread out all over my bed enjoying the sunshine. This is little Leila totally lost to the world and in dreamland..........


 
Megan and I dream of once again running a small shop of our own, just like our Cape Town shop. This week while surfing the net Megan discovered an amazing craft outlet for sale, most probably way beyond our means but well it is nice to dream.
Have been busy stitching bears as I have an order to complete, hope to have some pics soon. Enjoy the weekend only one day to go.............

I think that no matter how old or infirm I may become, I will always plant a large garden in the spring.  Who can resist the feelings of hope and joy that one gets from participating in nature's rebirth?  ~Edward Giobbi

Hello, Wendy,
Your bears are as sweet as can be! I loved looking at them. I want to be like your sweet kitty and lie in the sun and soak it all up. I hope you find the perfect house very soon. I know how daunting a task that can sometimes be. Thank you so much for coming by Bunny Cottage for a visit and for your kind comments. I hope you have the loveliest of weekends! Vicki
