When you have things all planned out it is easy to get disheartened when things don't go to plan, for whatever reason.... it's too easy to say 'what if this or that had happened' and dwell on what you can't change. I have been guilty of this myself over the last couple of weeks. What I need to do is focus on what is happening now, and how can I make the most of that.
So for the past week we have been forgetting about the house and getting outside despite the rain and wind and making the best of our time here in Hampshire.
This is Boris, our 91 year old friend who is kindly letting us store the camper on his drive!
It's amazing how getting outside improves your mood and helps you think much more rationally. You can feel how much happier society is when the sun is shining and everyone can get out and about. I think that is part of the appeal of Australia to us, hundreds of days of sunshine!
So even if it pours down with rain, we are going to be seeking out new walks, new festivals and new experiences to help us focus on the future, not the past, and start from where we are now.
