We are slowly settling into our new place. Although we moved in during December, we were away for almost a month because of holidays that we had arranged before we knew that we were going to buy a house!
Since we got back from holidays life has been about establishing new routines and making discoveries about what is around the property.
We have been doing lots of study, trying to work out what all the plants are and how to look after them. It is such an exciting challenge!
The boys have stepped up into work mode and are taking on more and more jobs. The novelty of a ride on mower with a trailer has a lot to do with that I think.
With the amount of rain we have had this week there has been even more time for planning, organising and unpacking. I am waiting to get to know the place a little - to learn where the shadows fall and where the water lies before we plant too many vegies and herbs.
It is such an exciting new start !
