Exciting news

Well I have actually been spending some time sewing today.... some of it secret swap stuff and other just for fun stuff but you'll have to wait until tomorrow to see what I'm creating as I've got other more exciting news to share with you today......

I haven't been game to post about this until settlement was complete.... 
but we're now the proud owners of this little 4.5 acre block of land on the edge of town! It's a very exciting step for us as we've been talking about buying a few acres for years and while it's not huge I think it will suit us perfectly!

We wont be building our house there for some time as we still need to sell our current house first but we will be putting up a great big shed and I'm sure that I'll bore you all to tears with building stories over the next year or two.
Until next time.......


  1. Oh how wonderful for you. Yes Peg is right. I have just come in of our block for a drink. I am(Should) mowing the pattersons curse on our 5acres. Always something to do but it is lovely having the pace and only living 5kms from the beach. Enjoy it.

  6. So pleased for you. Looks a great block and it will be great to follow the progress as you begin to make it really "yours".

  7. Congratulations ! I have no idea how big 4.5 acres is but it sure sounds very, very big!For the past 20 years, we have been moving around & living in rental houses. So, whenever I read about someone making land purchases, building houses or renovation, I sigh....
    I look forward to your future building stories!
    Warm wishes to you from Tokyo, Japan.
