A walk with a view ...

Sorry folks, this is a tight deadline for very short post - I have to be at the Abbey to take Evensong in half an hour. Today has been taken up with a fair amount, mainly to do with packing up a lot of stuff in this place so I can put the house on the market next month. And looking for a new place to live.

Tewkesbury Abbey and the Abbot's House seen from the South.

Having viewed two rather depressing flats (both would benefit from being cleaned and decorated!) and with the emotional stress of packing up someone else's things - I needed a walk in the fresh air and so ran out of time. Now it is stormy and wet, so perhaps I chose just the right time for the picture.

Nine hundred years of history through a lens. Quite a thought.

A beautiful photograph -- best of luck to you in the daunting task of packing and the emotions surrounding it. Sending you a few deep breaths - I hope you will find a splendid new home soon!

Best of luck with it all. I find moving house is all about memories - both good and bad. This must be extra hard for you. We'll keep you in our prayers.

Just hang on to all those thoughts and prayers wending your way...you'll make it through!

Thanks to you all - it ain't easy, but with good friends and some spiritual help, it is manageable.

When troubled I find old stones a source of solace. I hope they work for you as well.

All the best.
