But if you’re on my facebook or instagram then you probably already knew that. Here is the very first picture I took once we had settled and we were killing time waiting for the keys. It is quite a change from our little suburban block where the play area was cement and gated in…..and I’m not sure who is loving it more here – the adults or the kids.
and here is our first morning, with coffee in hand I sat outside and saw 3 cute bunnies (and yes as someone kindly pointed out I know they won’t be too cute once we have some veggies going), 2 wallabies and lots of birds. In fact I can hear the birds all day long and it’s just heaven.
I have a favourite saying from St Augustine ‘Our hearts are restless until they find rest in you’ and it’s kind of how I feel about this place. And all of the places we’ve bought and sold have led us to this. The one place where I can say hand on heart that I never want to leave. We have so much space, it is so quiet, it is so beautiful and it is all ours (and the bank … if you want to get technical). We’ve had the dream for a while and it meant leaving all of our family and friends and taking a big risk. But I know that it’s worth it and if you could come and have your coffee here in the morning then I’m sure you’d agree with me.
Now of course there are some adjustments to be made – it is no longer a 2 minute trip up to the shops for some pizza or milk, I don’t think you’ll hear us say I’m just ducking up the road for 5 minutes, mobile and internet reception on our phones is not what we’re used to and we’ve been walking through the house trying to get the best spots, the ants are huge – I went out last night to put some shoes out and they are about 5 times the size of the biggest ants I’m used to.So we have a lot to learn but we are happy to learn and loving every minute of it. Ok except for the unpacking. I am not loving the unpacking.
I look forward to sharing more pictures and more experiences from our new home with you………….just as soon as I have seen a few more boxes unpacked. You should see my sewing room………….it’s wall to wall boxes and was actually just a joke with the removalists because so many boxes just seemed to be heading to the sewing room.
