Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “birth/berth.” Use one, use ’em both, but whatever you do, have fun!
They often refer to the birth of a new era.
I suppose that can cover a multitude of instances, when we move to pastures new or have a change of circumstances.
It was like that for us in 2014 when we bought the boat.
We were after a residential mooring and there were few available. Still, being in the right place at the right time talking to the right bloke on the right day, we were able to acquire a berth here on the marina.
It was home for three years, and we enjoyed our life. Neither of us had done anything like it before, so indeed it was a birth of sorts, and we bore it with aplomb.
Circumstances change, there were a chain of events, and we decided to sell.
Now we are facing a rebirth of house living.
I’ve done my sums, I’ve prepared my spreadsheets, and we are waiting.
That’s the hardest bit……….. waiting for our ‘new baby’, in this instance, a new home.
