Right now I am asking myself who's idea was it to sell up and move off our farm and into town.

Oh that's right hubby's!!
Because I know that I cannot fully take the blame.
It's an idea we have been tossing around for a couple of years.
Kids getting older, the 3 older ones have lives of their own!
We barely see or hear from them.
So it seemed like a good idea to scale down in size.
Reduce some debt (you know how the story goes)

But one Monday morning over a cup of coffee it was not news I was expecting to hear.
 Hubby almost wore my coffee all over him when he came out and said
 "I think we should sell up and move into town with no land"
So then within the hour the realestate agent had been called he was coming to have a look and then before I can blink it's on the market.  Then hubby goes back to his work in the outback for another 4 weeks and I think I am still sitting at the kitchen table scratching my head.

Where does one start!!
At the beginning I guess
But wow this is one huge home and Frilly has more crap good stuff, to pack a truck all on her own.

Now we are 5 days away from moving and it has just hit me we are not packed yet.
Hubby is on his way home from his job in the outback and I am not sure he is ready for what he is about to walk in on.

I just wished it looked like this, there are boxes everywhere.

They say it is up there with death and divorce, and since I have gone through both more times than I would like to mention.
 They are RIGHT

Wouldn't it just be a darn sight easier if we could just do this?

Surely it would be easier.

Well if you don't hear from me over the next week or two

  1. Good luck on the move. I'm sure it's much more organised that you say. You have a method to your maddness and I know it'll go smoothly.

    Wishing you many many years of happiness in your new home. Can't wait to see photos of it all set up.
