Inglewood seems to be missed by many..
but I will say that i absolutely am 100% ok with moving, I haven't missed Inglewood at all. I adore Villa Maria even though I feel scattered and displaced.
so just why did we move?
since moving here to Villa Maria and my past few posts of how i am feeling.. many have asked why we moved. A number of reasons, I guess...
i think it all came to fruition, with the break up of my son's marriage.. not sure why, but something went from Inglewood for both of us.
the house & garden was getting too big for us really.. our children have left home except for Sophie who is not there much anyhow.. and the climate in Springwood is much milder during winter..
alot of small reasons added up to moving. I am really happy and ok with moving, it is just adjusting to it all I guess.. apparently, my feelings are very normal
so about Woodford
Woodford is the town where Inglewood is..
I love the village. it is small with no shop except a post office. Woodford is a sleepy little place with a major highway cutting it into two [and more roads being built at the moment].
The climate is cold but it doesn't snow.. although it has been known to have falls of snow every ten years or so. At Woodford you are isolated, there isn't a sense of community.. I was very solitary at Woodford, I had friends yes, but had to drive to see them. I had to drive to buy milk or bread. there are no walking footpaths in Woodford, to walk, I had to drive somewhere and park my car. If you walk in Woodford, you take your life into your own hands, so it is safer not to. But I do love Woodford, it is a fantastic place to bring children up in. There is a real magick about Woodford, but it was seemingly disappearing with the road works that is happening at the moment, like the testosterone tonka toys [being driven by men who haven't grown up] - knocking down trees, blasting rocks... they are disturbing the magick, the nature spirits and bringing in a very uneasy energy. I felt that. my head & soul felt it and it mad me very sad. so it was good to move. I totally 100% know that.....and you know, just last night, while sitting at our local bowling club having dinner [still no stove].. dutch husband sat back, sipping his red wine, and sighed.. saying 'isn't this just fantastic living in Springwood'... and that said it all for me.
