Was definitely born under a Wandrin' Star, but putting down some roots now in a biggish village South Anston, south of Sheffield but not far from Worksop. Husband has lived here all his life, apart from 4 years at University doing a degree. We move later this year to his Dad's old house, just across the road from us, bigger house, MUCH bigger back garden. OH has also promised I can have chickens when we get there. Still trying to reclaim most of it from Brambles, weather is a big problem.
Will be good to post some 'before' and 'after' photos, I think the back garden will take a bit of a back seat, the whole house needs rewiring, new kitchen, new bathroom (turquoise bathroom suite anyone?!), redecorating throughout, not been done since the 60's / 70's, so patterned carpets throughout, orange/brown/dark green wallpaper (yes, in SAME wallpaper). Needs gutting but money very tight, having to do a room at a time, after clearing all stuff in there - OH's Dad was a War Baby, so never chucked anything out because 'it might be useful'.
Garden is much easier, as OH has no idea what he's doing, so much easier to get out there and attack brambles. Very cathartic, but can't do much at a time cos I've got ME/CFS, and can't overdo it or I pay for it later!
