Look at my new house!




 
We got the keys to our beautiful new [old] house today! I'm sooooo excited!!! Isn't it just gorgeous? It was built in the 1840's as a school house, has 6 bedrooms, bakehouse with wood fired oven and lots of sheds to keep the man happy.

There's been renters in it for the last year so unfortunately it doesn't look so well kept at the moment as it shows in the photos [they're from before the renters neglected it]. So lots of work to be done! Hopefully after a new bathroom, a bit of paint, spot of weeding/mowing/planting and lots of elbow grease it'll be looking a little more presentable that it currently does.


So this buying / selling house business is pretty full on! Throw in a couple of birthdays, end of year stuff, christmas, school holidays, camping, catching up with family, sprucing up house, open homes, trying to pack up house and life in general = no time for writing on blogs [or even reading blogs].

It might still be a bit quiet round here for a little while - I will try to pop past now and then and let you know what's going on.
