New nest ...


A perfect place to live, write, work, cook, eat, play guitar, walk, learn, read, sleep and love.

Oh god, look at that sky... What a beautiful place to live. It makes me a bit lustful for English countryside.

I hope you'll all be very happy there.

thank you both! The village is sooooo beautiful. About 15 houses, a pub, a post-office which is open 3 hours a day, 3 days a week, and that's it!

I can't believe how beautiful it is. The cottage is lovely inside too - stone and wood everywhere, a big wood burner on a huge hearth, old wood floors and fab windows with ledges you could practically sleep on, which I suspect will be home to my new love's unruly book collection :)

My goodness the strap line says it all... you have included sleep and cook - I presume that does include eat but there above them all is live.

Live darlink and know the living is sweet because well you know the rest.

I note that work is there too but move towards the post offices hours eh:0)

The comment about the window ledges almost being big enough to sleep on did bring to mind 5 foot thick walls but then I was enviaging my and RnB's bums perched there after we have walked the Penine Way of course, cough

Loved the way you photoshoped that Italian sky over a Yorkshire cottage!

It'll be a darling place for your new family / collective. And only 33 miles from Boboland.

Beautiful; you're so lucky - off to a world of peace, nature and tranquility, miles and miles from the M3!

I fear Bobo may be right about the Italian sky....I don't recall it every being quite that blue in Yorkshire. Still, we have fabulous hills which more than make up for the wetness x

DW - oh yes, perfect windowsills for perching a cheek on (in the summer!).

trousers - thanks! Just a short hop from the Pennine Way - if you're ever strolling by do pop in for a cuppa.

anonymous - I expect I shall be blogging more when I get there ... new things to see and photograph and share - and hopefully a tiny bit less work to get in the way!

bobo - you mean the sun doesn't always shine in yorkshire? I thought it was like a hilly version of the riviera? non? Does Bobo land have a major? And a constitution? Or is it more like a themepark?

kindablue - miles and miles from any motorway! There is a common misconception that the country side is quiet, when of course it's extremely noisy ... but I prefer the sound of sheeeeep chatting to the hum of the traffic any day.

Ms M - can't believe how close it is to Pen-y-ghent! Great practice for monroe bagging :) Especially with roooobeeee pulling me up by her lead all the way to the top and back!

Cas - of course! We can't wait for you to visit either :) We should put dates in our diaries asap!

Boboland is an anarchic worker's cooperative utopia that rejects all forms of patriarchy and it's oppressive hierarchical structures ... by day.

And a midden for lazy-arsed tipsy psycho-web semi-geeks by night.

Luckily I'm there mainly in the evenings.
