learning to trust my own opinions and expertise
Is there anything more boring than a blog post starting out with, I know it’s been ages since I last blogged……
So whatever! No apologies.
It’s all exciting all the time at my end of the world at the moment. Looks like we are buying a new house – contract was signed last week, and providing no unexpected bumps, in just under 45 days we will be the proud new owners of a gorgeous little cottage one street back from the waterfront.
Sure, it’s teeny weeny, and simple and old and completely crazy. But it’s also perfect. I have the Dandy Warhol’s song “Bohemian Like Me” humming through my head whenever I think about it. There’s no storage whatsoever, not even any kitchen shelves, so I think that the first couple of months we will be living surrounded by boxes, but it’s cool. I have 3 growing daughters and they will be sharing a room, but they do now anyway, so it’s cool. We have to sell our current house so that we aren’t stuck permanently with two mortgages, but you know: it’s cool.
There is a front veranda, and a park just across the way. I will be kicking back on my funky yellow Casala chairs with vino in hand watching the kids play. Or not watching. Whatever.
I can walk the paddle board down the avenue to the waterfront and go for a paddle whenever the feeling takes me.
A group of our best buddies live one street over, so it is going to be a constant party-time.
The girls can walk to school safely.
There is hardly any yard to look after.
We have Grand Designs plans that there is no rush to get to, but that will keep us in this house FOREVER!
Sigh. Don’t you love this bit. When it’s all great, because it’s all in your head, and life will just be PERFECT all because we are in a new house. I’m no fool. The hard work has already started, but these, my friends, are exciting times.
Linking up with The Lounge because I have missed you guys!
