Time to celebrate – here’s the light at the end of the tunnel

Back in April l wrote about all the wonderful opportunities that were opening up for us.   So many good things were all colliding into a single place in time and it was overwhelming. 
But, we chose to pursue them even though it meant we would be very busy and they would require most of our attention and effort.

At the time l wrote about  “taking up a purpose in its season, and pouring yourself out for it” and "reaping the rewards come harvest". 

Well, harvest time is here and it’s time to celebrate.
During May the National Conference l was organising for work was held.  It was an amazing experience to see everything come together so well, and for the event to have such a positive feeling about it.

The work related project that was filling my Friday's, has now come to an end.  It was a rewarding experience but l'm equally looking forward to having a day to myself during the week again.  

The other weekend we released Olafthe echidna puggle we have been hand raising since January. So good to see him go back into the wild.
And the big news is.........we’re moving.

During May we sold our house, and fell promptly in love with another one.

Not the farmhouse that we were originally looking at in April, but a 100 year old cottage nestled on the banks on one of our local rivers.  Come the end of the week we'll be the owners of one acre and our own stretch of riverbank.  The house has such a wonderful feel about it, l'm literately pinching myself that this will be our home.

The past few months have been an absolute whirlwind, and it took all my effort to stay calm and centred.  It's been a huge ride, but with the support of my wonderful partner in life, our family and friends (and that includes you guys)....we've got there.

Let the good times roll.


  1. And after the storm, the calm. Congratulations on so many fronts!

  2. Wow, congratulations!!!! Sounds like the light at the end of the tunnel is shining bright :) Your new home sounds amazing, can't wait for you to share it. Enjoy the good times.

  3. I am so incredibly happy for you! The cottage sounds awesome.....can't wait for some pics along the river. Olaf has returned to the wild, thanks to your care, and maybe, just maybe, you'll find some time to, um, unpack in that cottage! I still don't know how you do it all!! xoxo

  4. Awesome Chrisy! A cottage on the river sounds fantastic! And as much as you guys probably got attached to that Olaf, I know it has to be a big relief to not have that responsibility on your hands any longer. And that is a fantastic sunset!
