Do you like it bloggers?
We we had the news today that we have a mortgage..phewy..so it looks like it is full steam ahead to moving in about a months time to...
do do doooo
Devizes in Wiltshire.
It has lots of locks, and pretty countryside, lovely shops and pubs too! Our new house (which is a brand new house built in the style of an old house) is a 10 minute walk away from the canal. This is why I want a new bike...so I can cycle along the river bank.
Its about as close to Devon, as you can get without the sea...but near enough to work for both of us, Plus you can get to the New Forest in 40mins, and Portsmouth in about an hour and 20mins...near to where I grew up before I moved to North Devon.
Devizes has a lot of history, and more recently has a lot of history to do with World War 2. (I'm looking forward to going to the local Museum)
Our really good chums live near here...in a very old town house...
Theres a lovely old pond too - about 20 mins walk from our new place..
and these are the locks...
and there is an old fashioned cinema!
and apparently Far from the Maddening Crowd was filmed there too!
Well if its good enough for Julie Christie...its good enough for me!
Happy Wednesday Bloggers thanks so much for stopping by!
PS I just wanted to say a particular thankyou to Jo Jo - who without fail, leaves messages to me all the time, I really appreciate your friendly words xx
PPS...I'm still lusting after the Pippa Bag by Modalu...so if anyone has one they would like to donate to a mad bag lady, I would be ever so grateful :0)
