Further intentions

OK, so not gotten much further with my life's intentions from my last post but I have sorted out just about all of the people I need to legally notify about my name change including my passport. I was going to leave that until it ran out but apparently you can't as it can be misconstrued as you trying to be fraudulent so I've had to change that too. I am on the housing list now for Shropshire. Just waiting to hear about the decision, which I believe takes a few weeks. Fingers crossed I get to go home.

I've been down to Rochester in Kent to spend a few days with my youngest son. I confess, I hadn't seen him for 4 or 5 years and that is bad of me. Was lovely to catch up with him again and also have a mooch around Rochester again. Although I lived in the Medway towns for many years and frequently went to Rochester I had never been in the cathedral before, so I had a mooch around there too. Lovely building, apparently the second oldest in the UK. Canterbury is older so I'm told.

Rochester Cathedral

I also found a gorgeous shop called The Vintage Dove in Rainham shopping precinct. I wanted everything but refrained except for a pot of chalk paint and clear wax, oh! And a little scented bag thingy. It's a gorgeous shabby chic type shop full of gorgeous scrumminess. Good job I don't live there anymore or I could get into serious trouble.

I can't think of anymore news at the mo so I'll say toodlepip for now.

Take care.

More Intentions

Last week I made the decision to move back to Shropshire. I've still got to get on the housing list and be able to bid on houses etc. but that's where I'd like to be. I'm Shropshire born and Shropshire bred and nearly all my family still live there. I'd like to spend more time with my now elderly parents, especially my mum. Now whether or not this all comes about is yet to be seen but for now it's a plan and I need a plan, a sense of direction. Something to work towards. I just wish all my family could live close to one another so I could see them all instead of being scattered all over England.

I love Belper and the surrounding countryside of Derbyshire and will miss it but everything I do here at the moment just feels so empty. Hard to describe it really but I feel like I'm going through the motions that don't mean anything. I've been to the cinema a couple of times and whilst it was nice to see the films it seemed a bit pointless on my own.

The secret of a happy life isn't buried in a treasure chest it lies within your heart....

I have also changed my name by deed poll too. I've reverted back to my maiden name so I'm slowly changing all the legal documents over to my new/old name. Feels quite good too.

More of life's intentions to come so toodle pip for now.
