We are waiting to get the final written offer from the bank, so again we are in limbo waiting for that nod before we can spring into action. There is only so much we can do until we have final confirmation that it will be ours!
We were on a course on Friday. It was great. It was on food, leisure and enterprise. There were really inspirational people there to talk to us and answer questions. People who have set up their own businesses and been really successful. It has really motivated us. Other people attending the course were really supportive too.
So in order to relax we went for a walk to enjoy the scenery!
Northumberland is a bit like Scotland. It is very ruged and wild. One of the few places in this country where you can stand and turning 360 degrees, not see any town or village. The only signs of human life is the odd farm house. Its a kind of rural that is becoming very rare in this country.
We visited farm shops, ate cake, saw rare Dexter blue cattle, went for a walk along the wall, went for dinner in an wonderful new pub restaurant, then went to a Roman mithraic temple to watch the total eclipse of the moon. It was amazing. The lack of light pollution made it incredible and to think the Romans would probably have been at the temple during an eclipse spooky.
A fantastic day!
We hope that we will know on Monday if we can leap into action and then you all need to look in your diaries and see when you can come and give us a hand!
All our Love Helen and Rhian
