The Gallery - New

   

When we first made the decision to downshift our lives after losing my Mum in 2006, it was as if a light bulb had suddenly been switched on and our lives changed literally overnight. Papa Syder and I had been separated for twelve long months and when we got back together we knew we had to start a new life together, in a new home, in a new area. A complete fresh start beside the sea, was just what was needed to get our marriage back on track.


Our new life became slower, much slower. We starting spending as much time together as possible, because a big part of our marriage break up was that we had become like strangers. Our lives were slowly leading in different directions and then the death of my Mum was just too much for the marriage to take.


These days our new life is just as slow and even though we no longer still live beside the sea in North Devon, we continue to live a very stress free life in Essex. It has been one hell of a journey. A journey of life lessons, sometimes painful as a new life often means leaving behind some people and places, but mostly our journey has been happy and content. We love our new life.
