I feel the change coming. The shifting of life stages as I spend less time on the internet and more time in front of books, less time in my house and more time in the park, less time less time building equity and more time contributing to other not-so-tangible investments. In two months today life will enter a new chapter once again and to say I am nervous is an understatement. Nothing is defined. There are no prospects, nothing solid that we can cling to as an indication of what our future might look like, just uncertainty. And yet, I pray for peace, I pray for trust, I pray for provision and I try to enjoy the last couple months we have here in this surreal place.
On tuesday, I had the opportunity to join Jakob’s class on a trip to Wimpole Farm. When I stepped off the bus I felt like I had stepped into a Jane Austen novel. The farm became functional in the 1780’s and as part of the National trust has kept much of its charm. I didn’t get a chance to take a lot of pictures as I always get the curious active little boys to watch but we all still had a lovely time.
Life has been slow other than that. Ben has his written exam next week so is busy studying although, he did have the opportunity on Tuesday to go to High Table at Trinity College. Nothing could be more quintessentially Cambridge and he claimed it was the most surreal experience he has had here.
The weather has turned around, thankfully, so we are back to afternoons on Parker’s Piece (a big green space which magically comes alive when the sun come out). And when the kids have finally nodded off for the night I pull out the books as I have officially started my first Grad course. Yup! I am wildly excited and horribly nervous all at the same time. But every time I get anxious about it I simply remind myself that it’s no pressure. I am just trying it out, testing the waters, seeing if it is something I can handle and will enjoy. Needless to say, if I seem a little absent it’s because I am reading up on 19th Century human rights.
I hope you all have a beautiful weekend!
