2000 - viewing the project with newborn son Geraint in my arms
Welcome to this home-made site; written from one of Britain's sleepiest backwaters on the banks of the Eastern Cleddau where I lived and worked since moving into a leaky caravan at the back of an old ruined Big House Ty Mawr in rural west Wales on a dark and gloomy November day in 2001. Well it seemed like a good idea at the time! To read some of the tale of my Big House adventure, click here: http://landshipping.webs.com/storyofthebighouse.htm
This website intends to focus on our journey rather than the destination - because of the lack of progress on restoring the house- it is really about juggling raising a family and tackling the challenges of living in this fascinating part of the world, along with my own dreams and aspirations, which in itself is quite a turn around for this city girl.
