Home Again

Wednesdays always seem to take hours to get started. But at least I've finally ordered some more yarn, so can get knitting again soon.
We spent a weekend wandering around Warwickshire, doing a bit more research into places that we might like to live. On Saturday, we explored some villages just West of Daventry - Staverton, Hellidon, Priors Marston and Priors Hardwick. It's surprising how they all feel different, just getting out of the car and walking around a bit. Staverton was a rural working village, and very quiet. Hellidon much more traditional, rolling parkland countryside, but very small. Priors Marston (or was it Hardwick?) was a bit bigger, with paths squeezing between houses throughout the village, all paved in bricks with a criss-cross pattern. It didn't have any obvious focal points though.
Then we reached Harbury, where we'd booked our B&B. Harbury is the village that we'd discovered last October, and decided we'd like to live in. This weekend has just reinforced that. There are even some houses there that we could imagine living in. It's strange - you know that feeling when you finally walk into the right house, and you know it's 'the one'? Well, it's just like that, but with a village. We *know* that we will live there. It's just a matter of when. Be patient, I keep telling myself. It will happen.
