Our Studio

This is where we have been living this last month, It is owned by a family from the school. They lived in it till they built their real house. I could live here forver.
Oh, I forgot about the sugar gliders who do a dance ( and more) every night and all through the night!

Everything has been reclaimed, it is so inspirational. And it runs off solar energy and has a composting toilet which I love, they are fantastic, although Joey thought he could fall through the toilet hole, so I had to hold his hand.

The family are professional muscians, and everynight Ron would come down and play the didgeridoo and tell us stories about catching red bellie black snakes and how a perentie carried him up a tree!

Jim was in awe. The next week he brought along his didge to play along with Ron.

Sorry for being off the radar lately, besides pacing the floor, chewing my nails down to their stumps and all, and blogger hasn't been able to publish my posts.

Last month, I thought I would be here in this house, the home that Dan and I built, built for us and the dream of our family to be. ......forever.

This land, our land is family land, our roots are deep and after 10 years, I can see what a wonderful place we have made here.

But life sometimes throws you a curveball, and I've had enough signs to know that this is the right thing to do.

Friends and family are in shock they can't quite believe we are doing this, so quickly, but you know, there's no need to hesitiate when it's the right decision, right for us.

Flynn and Alice eating our bumper crop of apples, we have not bought an apple since Feburary, and it's August! the last of the crop was eaten tonight. we have a wonderful orchard of snow apples, jonathan, golden delicous, pink lady, lady williams, granny smith.

I love this pattern, I think it's been around for decades.

Fully reversable pinnie. I think you all know my obsession with pinnies.

And I love that it keeps her jumpers clean, much easier to wash a cotton pinnie than a wool jumper.
