About Me

After we've completed a house, it's amazing how many people say "Isn't it great how it all came together!"... as if by accident. This is a very small look into how it all "comes together".

Happy Easter

Happy Easter to you all!
I hope you're all having a wonderful break.

We visited family and friends in the Hinterland and the Sunshine Coast.
The weather was beautiful.
It's always nice to get away from it all and head to the farm.
The kids caught frogs, chased cows, built fires and toasted marshmallows.
 It's great to be able to let the kids run free and just be kids.
I grew up in the country and as much as I like living in the city,
I feel sad that my kids won't grow up with the same freedom as I did.

When we go to the farm my father-in-law 'Shakey' gives us the cabin 
and sleeps in this caravan which he renovated.
It's very retro.

It is so important to have (old or new) things in your home 
that tell a story about you, bring back memories,
or just make you smile.
Make sure you look outside your window too...

 For my city slickers, it's the simple things that make them happy.
Master R. was chuffed that he'd built and lit this fire all by himself!
(Last year his left index finger was de-tipped with a hammer,
 so this was a big thing for him :)

He and B. toasted a whole bag of marshmallows.

After the Easter Bunny delivered hundreds of eggs,
we went to 'Happy Valley' to celebrate a friend's birthday.
There were lots of beautiful Pandanus trees
 We would love to live near the beach!

One day.....

We had a very relaxing few days 
and came home to go to the ANZAC day march.
It always makes me teary.




  1. What idyllic spots. Living at the beach is on my bucket list too. Loved your photos.

  2. Glad you had a lovely Easter :)

    Do you mind me asking which undermount basins you've got in the kids' bathroom at the Sugarcube and what benchtop you've got in there?
