Addendum

Hi.

I planned never to write another entry here, but with all the support we received along the way for this journey it seemed a bit mean not to come back and let you know we are all alive and well.

Dan and I parted ways at the start of last year and my time at The Old Post Office came to an end, which may seem a little abrupt to you but possibly less so to us.

I moved back to Brisbane with Lucinda, and am still here, living a very different life from the one I shared on this blog, but a great life nonetheless.


Dan has taken over the renovation and continues to transform the house, with a bit of help from Lucinda every second weekend.

He has mentioned one day taking over this space to keep telling the story of the house - I hope he will.

I've had a few people ask if it was the scope of the renovation that ended our marriage and I always say no. It probably didn't help, but it wasn't the reason.

For now, onward and upward. Thanks for following along with our adventures and I wish you all the best with your own.

Edwina

  8. Oh Edwina, I'm so sorry to hear that, but I'm glad you sound happy. I had checked back on the blog quite a few times, but thought life had just got too hectic for you. All the best for the future and thank you for giving us a great blog.

  10. Hi Edwina,
    That was very kind of you to share that with us. I always appreciate honesty in the blogosphere, as it's not something you come by often (and I completely understand why you couldn't share this news until now). I've never commented before and you don't know me, but I read your blog from the beginning and I have been checking it at least monthly since you stopped posting, hoping that you'd come back. Good to hear everyone's well and the renovation hasn't halted completely. I hope that Dan takes over this blog. Life is complex and wonderful. Onwards and upwards indeed.
    Best wishes,
    Emma

  14. Hi. It's great to see you back here. Of course, I also follow you on IG so had an idea of what was going on. Whatever you end-up doing I hope you blog something. You're a writer so you must miss it a bit, and on top of that I find you amusing. Life's life. It's not perfect and we have to make the best of how it pans out. (I love a platitude). It would be nice to see how the Post Office ends-up, so if Dan chooses to document that I'd read along.xo
