We don’t seem to have enjoyed many gorgeous Lancashire sunsets here for a while.
Or maybe I have been too busy to notice them. It must be the former, because I am a bit of a sunset geek. A Sunset is something that makes me stop in my tracks and grab my camera. It happens every time. They are all different and unique aren’t they?
And to prove this point I have these pictures. They were taken at the end of our garden one night during the week. In a spot I have admired many sunsets. Yet I have never, ever, noticed the tree against the skyline. It totally blew me away. I immediately ran to grab my camera and stood for some time watching the sky as it changed colour by the second. It was ever so subtle, but the change is evident in these shots.
Its days like this I thank my lucky stars we live somewhere so breathtaking, that wandering to the end of the garden or looking out of the window can command such views. If I am honest I am thankful every day for living somewhere so stunning.
We actually viewed a house a couple of weeks ago.
It was slightly bigger and had all the things we are missing here, the things we felt we needed, an extra bedroom, utility and a garage. We loved the house, and left buzzing. But I came home looked out the window and told Chris I can’t move, I love it here too much. My head wants to move, but my heart doesn’t. Material things aren’t essential are they? But what is? Living somewhere we love, having this view. All of us happy and healthy, together in our little home on the hill. Yes, we have to taxi the boys, but thats a small price to pay.
And on the nights when the wind is so fierce that is sounds like the roof is going to blow off, or the rain is so loud you can’t sleep. Or we get snowed in for a day or two. I actually feel lucky that we feel the seasons and the weather. And do you know what? I honestly don’t think that is something I can leave. Well, not for now anyway.
