My ultimate aim in taking a three month sabbatical was to try and take myself away from all the triggers, to try and recharge my batteries and find a way forward. Several friends and family were concerned that I would just be sat around and have nothing to do but think! Well they obviously haven’t lived in The Campo…..
We have only been here two weeks and we have experienced:-
Baby mouse in pool
Rat in the orchard
Fight in the supermarket (not us)
Washing machine that takes 2 hours on a quick cycle
An unfortunate incident with a garden chair
Attended a Wolf-men party
Watched a pole dancer
A minor flood in the pump room
Visited by Jehovah’s Witness (again)
As well as the above we have:-
Woken up to glorious sunsets
Have mountain views from every aspect
Invited to BBQ’s
Picked fruit from the orchard
Swam daily in the pool
Put up flags for the World Cup
Played ball every day with the dogs
Shopped at local markets
And we have TV and Wifi
And I have loved every minute, this was the right thing to do, I know I can’t run from it but I can quieten it, just for a while, just for a time, just until I am a bit stronger!
Note: I will tell you more about the fight and the party another time and I have pictures!!
