A new place to live.

We are moving yet again! (5th time in less than a year for those keeping count) We’ll be moving to a house in Shiplake, Oxfordshire, right on the river Thames. The house is much bigger than where we are currently and it is really beautiful, stone and wood floors, built in cabinets, a beautiful bathroom and views of the river. The garden extends all the way to the river and the garden is taken care of so no yard work for us!

The house is right near the Thames River path – and thus connected to a huge network of other walking and cycling paths. In August the Wargrave and Shiplake regatta will take place just a few metres downstream.

We found out 3 weeks ago that we will need to leave our current house in the country as the landlords are selling. I was so sad – I really love this little place. But, an amazing house was placed right into our laps. God has provided for us every step of the way in our move to England and our time in the new country. I was really upset with the uncertainty of needing to find a new place, and the hassle of moving again so soon, but He was giving us a gift of something even better.

    Is the whole place yours or is it several units together? It looks really big from the outside, but the kitchen seems more like maybe it’s a duplex?

    I’m so glad you were able to find something suitable so quickly.

    I believe that there are four units, each a different color. Ours will be the yellow one assuming everything works out–laws here generally favor the owners rather than the renters and buyers. Even though we have placed a deposit, it is not a done deal until we get and sign the binding papers.
