Finding Words

moult-8252It’s been four months of no technology for me. I have been embracing my new life in the Byron Bay Hinterland. Finally I have landed on my feet and just like Isla I found some words to start talking again.

A lot can happen in just four months. Our little girl has grown up, we have a few extra teeth, words are coming out like no tomorrow and she can communicate a lot easier with us. Which is great for all parties. We managed to do Woodford Folk Festival with Isla (the perfect festival baby) and me 24 weeks pregnant. So much fun, I will write more on that another time though.

Our farm has finally been sold and handed over. This has been a huge weight off our shoulders not having to pay a mortgage and pay city rent prices. It’s sad to see it go as it was our place of hopes and dreams and where Isla was born and spent her first year of life. Like all things in life, when one door closes another opens.

I feel like I have been waiting for the farm to finally settle before I can get my head straight again. It’s been two weeks since it happened and I am finally wanting to write again. As I grow and change, living in my new environment I am being taken on a new journey. Who knows where I will end up next and what the next adventure will hold. All I know is I have under 11 weeks to go until we welcome bub No.2 along and for now that is enough for me.  I may write the odd blog post as I miss writing and sharing.

For those that have followed my blog for a long time have seen it evolve in many ways. I am sure it will change again over the coming year. I am still cooking, living as simply and practically as possible and nurturing my family. I don’t garden as much as I use to, which I have some how not missed but the lack of chickens in my life breaks my heart. Can’t wait until we buy something again so we can get some more.

Living in the Northern Rivers has changed my thinking and for the better. I got so stuck where we were and here I feel like the possibilities are endless. People are so friendly, so much good food to eat out and concerts and festivals too.

Yes, last weekend Roy and I had a date night, we did dinner in Bangalow and then went to see a concert (Dave Rawlings & Gillian Welch). It was great to remember what it was like to be just us. We get to do things like that here in our new life, we have Grandparents and Aunties for babysitters which is something we didn’t have before.

Life is balanced again.

I will keep this short but if you have any questions feel free to leave a comment and who knows I might just right a post about it for you.

  1. I’m so glad to hear from you. 🙂 Your new life sounds good and healing for you in so many ways. I look forward to hearing more as you find the words. xo

    1. Thanks Krista, it has been a healing time for me. It didn’t realise it at first but I needed to take that step back to get my head and heart in the right place. Love the next adventure that is on its way.

  2. Lovely to hear from you again and to hear like all of us, change can be scary but embracing new ways brings new opportunities. Congratulations on your upcoming arrival too.

  3. Good to hear from you again, and glad everything is working out well for you! Isla had grownup so much! Good luck with the new baby and keep enjoying having a toddler.

  4. Good to hear from you at this exciting time. We missed Woodford this year as were were in NZ catching up with family which was so worth it. Our move from our farm at Kilcoy back to the suburbs has been such a change but all of a sudden we had time galore on our hands with the lack of chores to do. We have really been making the most of this as when we head to NZ it will be a bit full on so we need to rest while we can. Glad to hear you are making use of the family for babysitting. Are you feeling like part of the community down there yet?

    1. Yes moving back to civilization can seem daunting at first but the chores list is so small! I don’t have to do as much here as I did on the farm. I am practically just a housewife now, which has taken a little time to get use to as the free time meant I could do other projects. Its time to make the list of fun.
