I had a job interview....

and I got it!

I am now the piano teacher at a 6th form college in the area. It is only one afternoon a week starting in September but that, combined with my private teaching will make all the difference financially (and I wouldn't want much more hours there than that anyhow. Things are going well and there are no regrets and a lot less worries now. I am embracing my new life and really enjoying it all.

The garden continues to thrive and being here to enjoy it and work in it makes all the difference to its progress. I haven't got any further with my steps and path project yet, but thank you all those who gave me advice, I have a lot of good ideas now.

Now I am thinking of putting a pond in too, in the future.................

And thinking of converting my garage into a music studio..................

Dreams are great.


  1. Congratulations! Remember "if you don't have a dream how you going to have a dream come true?" Glad all is going well for you.

  2. Oh so pleased for you! Congratulations!
    I would say yes to the pond, even if it is a zinc bath like mine! It's certainly kept mr or mrs frog in my garden but, no little frogs yet. Still, what with the hedgehog, frog, toad and soon, chickens, there may not be many slugs and snails about!
    Garage into a music studio, sounds like a good idea, will it bump up your general home insurance? And, do you or will you have a carport to keep the worst of the weather off your car?
    My brother who is a self employed car mechanic, says garages are only glorified sheds!
    Well, good luck with your pond,music studio and new job!

  3. Many congratulations. It's amazing how comforting a small regular extra income can be.

  4. Brilliant news, well done you. :o)

  5. So glad for you! Your life has certainly been enriched since you moved home. All the best for the future. The garage conversion might add another string to your bow. Best of luck!

  6. Well done Dan, who knew how much your life would change when you decided to stop travelling!

  7. Dreams are amazing! Your adventure over the last few years has been really inspiring to me. So happy for you to have work that makes following your heart home possible. I love the idea of a music studio.

  8. Congratulations! It must have taken a big leap of faith to give up your previous way of life, and I am glad its working out for you.

  9. I am so pleased for you. You sound very happy.

  10. Congratulations on the new job!
