Things that have to be considered: It is isolated, i do have to commute to work in Sydney as well, it rains alot, gets very foggy, it is on tank water and a septic pit, it does have snakes , a resident wombat living under the house and an abundant amount of kangaroos at dusk on the roads (i need a bullbar fitted). The wood pile needs to be continually stocked, the gas bottles changed. The corner shop is 20 mins drive so i cant forget to buy milk or or coffee (or wine) and drinking water.The gardens need maintenance, the vege patch needs to be attended too. It could be scary, every noise, every crackle in the dark, my heart will probably be up in my throat. For no reason at all, of course! but i am prepared for this ( i think) , I am a tad nervous, but at the same time super thrilled to move to my rural pocket of bliss. The fresh air, the space and the stars at night, And i am certainly willing to adapt to and embrace to my new lifestyle.
We are renting a property to start off with, to see if this change will work for all of us, I have found this quaint little house and garden that i have falling in love with, that we will call home for the time being. Here are the pictures:
