Sunday Bits and Pieces

It's been the most gorgeous day here today. I love Winter in Queensland, snuggling under the doona at night and enjoying the sun during the day.

Lu's had a promotion to a new toddler bed, snuggly tucked behind a big room divider into the corner of Little House's one and only bedroom... 

Sheepy has a new friend, now named Roger Ramjet... You may notice the fancy fence they are standing behind, which our neighbour has just finished constructing for us. They have a large paddock and some old pig pens they can shelter in, too. Lucky Sheep.

There's big plans for Big House this week, Dan has some time up his sleeve to get in there and really get working on the place.  I'm hoping to devote some time to plugging the gaps in the floor boards at Little House.

Speaking of Little House, my, we've settled in well. It's a very comfortable, inviting space, with a nice view of the hills behind our property, lots of natural light and, of course, the front and back verandahs to relax on. I'm very happy and keep pottering around cleaning it and sorting things out.

Onward and Upward.


  1. Glad to see you are settling into the haven of little house. I ran away from my reno this weekend as the whole process was driving me bonkers and I'm not even living there! mel x

  2. Hi Edwina - you sound much happier now after the move. Hopefully the change of scenery is just what you need to invigorate you for the next stage at the Big House. xx

  3. and it even looks like you have a nice geranium there to flower through the fence (or is it a look alike weed). Cute lambs, they nibble on everything in the garden, however at least their poop is easy to clean up from areas where they shouldn't have been pooping! ;-)

  4. Hi Edwina. I just found your blog again and realised you are in the Lockyer Valley. I think I came across your blog when you first bought the house. I am in Toowoomba and if you ever have the urge to come up the Range we have a Simple Living Group which meets regularly on a Saturday morning. There is more info on my blog if you are interested.

    I love your blog by the way.

  5. I enjoy reading about your life and adventures in Australia with your young family. I have raised sheep, and there is nothing cuter than lambs! Thanks for sharing!

  6. It was a beautiful day Sunday, no rain for a change! Welcome Roger lol.
