Travelling South

This picture doesn't really capture much of what's been going on for the last two weeks. Emma and I moved from the country to the city. Goodbye grazing cows and vegie patch, hello cafes, trucks and city lights. Picking up the keys from the real estate agent's was so exciting. We've never owned our own home before and suddenly, everything took on a whole new sheen....''our'' door, ''our sloping lounge-room floor'', our ''rusted spouting''...

We've spent the last 2 weeks rushing from one room to another and back again, which is much more fun than it sounds. I can't wait to explore the area more...we can walk to our local cinema, heaps of shops - even a bookshop...we can see the bridge from our bedroom window and on Saturday, we went to the local organic market in the park.

The craft-room is up and running but I haven't made much - too busy being thrilled that almost everything little thing has its own spot. A real novelty.

It's nice to be back.
