If you’ve read this blog for a while or you’ve seen a few of my facebook updates then you know I have a bit of a dream to move to the country. The southern highlands would do. Some peace and quiet, 5 acres would be nice, a cosy home with enough space for all of us, some good schools nearby, close enough to Sydney to still see friends and family and just a bit more space and a quieter lifestyle.
We go through stages of trying to make it work but it would require lots of commuting for retro daddy and it always comes unstuck. So I live out my country dream through ‘escape to the country’ episodes. I’m rather addicted. I have fallen asleep a couple of times as it’s on at 10.30 each night.
So I’ve just started taping the episodes. I don’t mind what part of the UK they are investigating, the bigger the budget the better, if there’s an AGA I’ll yell out to retro daddy to check it out and I’ve made it my number one tv show lately.
And I know I’ve got some fellow tragics on facebook who have to watch it every night. Some of them have made the tree change themselves………………….have you?
And while we’re confessing my other great love is the real estate website and I love looking for country kitchens like this one. Image source here. Now I’m just being picky but I probably would have kept the floorboards running through the kitchen.
OK enough confessions from me, over to you………………dream of the country, living the dream, made the tree change, have no desire……..
