The Countdown is on!
Weeks. Counting down now, in weeks. The House is sitting there, just waiting on a family to move in.....
The kids did their house christening wees in the brand new toilets last night. Then they had the first drink of water from the water filter.
Mr C had a shower in the ensuite and we all marvelled at the fact that our house actually works!
We have lights and water and next week we'll have beautiful polished floors!
The only thing left to do will be the stainless steel wire around the verandah. Then we will move in.
What! We will move in...are you serious?
I still remember our first night in the shed, 4 years ago. 27th October 2008. The kids were so little, and we had no idea what we were getting ourselves into.
It was such a bittersweet time for me, moving from our comfortable home in the suburbs to a farm, a shed and a totally new life. Having never lived out of town before, I was scared. Fearful of the unknown, worried about change.
The country life is in my blood, born from the roots of my mother and my grandmother. I just....belong here.
I plan to grow old on the verandah of my house, knitting something amazing while my grandchildren play in the fresh air.......nothing would be sweeter.....
