Productive Monday

Today has been a nicely productive day. 1) The soil-tester folks went out and did the testing today – a day earlier than expected (!!) which means we are a step closer to knowing what options we will have in front of us regarding a septic system. 2) Very informative talks were had with Terry … Read more…

The best laid plans…

Another weekend has come and gone – and whilst we didn’t quite achieve what we had initially hoped to – we did get a decent bit of work done out at the Farm. We’d hired one of those floor-scrubber thingys, so on Sunday morning we packed up the truck with that on board, plus the … Read more…

A clean-up up-cycle win.

We’ve hired a floor-scrubber thingy from Saturday pm to Monday am, so this afternoon we went out to the Farm to tidy up a bit and remove the majority of the stuff we’re currently storing in the shed, in readiness for hopefully getting a good bit of the floor scrubbed clean tomorrow. We inherited some … Read more…

Skipping with joy.

Happiness is: the delivery of a skip-bin to our house. We finally sold one of the cars yesterday (tho it was a bit sad to see our soft-top baby go), so last night we emailed our buddy Gavin to drop off a bin when he was next in town – now that we have somewhere … Read more…

The Cat is outta the Bag!

Its one of the coolest morning we have had this winter, and its just rolling into the most gorgeous day! Everything is crisp, and the sun is shining, and everything just looks beautiful out in the world this morning. Last weekend, we were going to go out and mow on Sunday, but as luck would … Read more…

When the stars align.

It’s been a wonderfully great day already – and it’s only just past lunchtime!! We had an appointment with our electrician Justin today, who was coming out to officially meet us, and get a proper look around the farm. He also bought Danny with him, who is our plumber. We spent some time wandering around … Read more…

A lil overwhelmed..

Over the last couple of weeks I have been slowly decluttering, selling off stuff, cleaning out things, donating stuff and throwing away stuff; all in an effort to try and make this business of ‘downsizing’ a bit easier bit. It’s all a bit overwhelming sometimes, and I don’t think the enormity of the job at … Read more…

Well THATS settled then!

  Yep – today’s the day! We’ve just got a text message from the bank, to say that the Farm has settled – it’s now well and truly OURS!! And in another piece of amazeballz news – we’ve also been advised by email that our water meter went in today!! It’s all happening now, and … Read more…

Contractors & a Shopping Trip.

We’ve chosen and booked our Electrician Justin to connect the mains power; we’ve booked our Plumber to put in the lines for mains water at the same time as Justin does his electrical work, we’ve been to Council and applied for our rural number and water connection; and all being well – settlement will be … Read more…

Brokers, Cleaning and a Container.

We went into the Brokers office on Thursday afternoon and signed all the docs that we needed to for the Farm, so that was a pretty momentous moment in time! We’ve also already started packing up stuff that we wont need for the next 6-12 months, so that once the shipping container arrives, we can … Read more…
