The main event for us last year was leaving behind Sydney suburbia and moving to the coast. We had no idea what a great decision it would be. Lots of things have fallen into place.
Eight months on and I still can't believe we live here...
|I took this picture! Yes me!|
A place where we catch our own fish (and crayfish!). A place where we've built our own vegetable garden and from where I bring up big bunches of herbs and salad leaves most evenings.
A place where I've discovered a love for craft, photography, and for making things. A place where I'm learning to address my needs and slow down, and in the process has led me to create this blog and discover so many inspiring people out there.
A place that I'm starting to call home.
Even though I sit here a bit sad (my sister left for Perth this morning), bleary-eyed (after a night with Kian waking me every two hours) and completely drained (a big food shop with the boys yesterday), I'm looking forward to the year ahead.
And if I could just have one wish? Well, a job on the coast for Graeme would be at the top of my list (no more commuting into Sydney). More time at home together.
And while it's probably a way off, my family to move to this part of Australia would complete the picture.
But hey, I'm supposed to be living in the moment and what we have right now is what we have. And it's pretty good.
I've got some exciting plans for the year ahead, some food related, some not. You'll just have to stay tuned to find out more.
Happy new year.
