I have spent the last four nights with Annie and Ian – a wonderful gift from a friend and just what I needed. Life slowed right down, I slept a lot, walked, read, drew and got excited about writing my story! Unlike most visitors I have no writing experience but was swept up by Annie’s enthusiasm for my project. Encouraged and inspired by her guidance I have taken my first steps forward and felt nurtured in every way including respect for my independence. The colourful rugs, dishes, cups and teapots around were an added delight to the relaxed, warm welcome!
