Yeah it's such a huge difference from the place that I used to live. That was a true hellhole while it's so peaceful out here.
Really needed the peace and quiet as I was not doing well and started having all kinds of medical issues due to stress alone. It was all just too much after so many years of abuse and living amongst horrible people.
I'm really starting to enjoy life again since I've moved here. And you'll probably understand why I have fewer time to work on magazines.
Besides the 45 minute bike ride to work every day, the garden and home need a lot of work to keep everything in order.
Just this week alone I've taken a week vacation so I would be able to trim all the hedges, trees and bushes to get everything ready for the wintertime.
The little guy seems to be doing great too btw.
I left his cage open yesterday evening so that when he woke up he could finally join the other hedgehogs after getting accustomed to them over the weekend.
Just an hour ago, around 12PM I saw him again as he came back to eat.
Watched him for a while as he ate and drank and then slowly waggled his way underneath the bushes in the same direction where the others always go. So I think he'll be right at home, which is quite the relief.
You never know if things will work out or not, and it certainly was going through my mind constantly the last couple of days if I did the right thing or not.
Seems like everything is working out perfectly.
