Here I am!
Well, I have made a big jump and joined blog world....oh my what have I done?! I made a rash promise to my lovely husband that if we bought what I affectionately call 'Pear Tree Farm', then I would write a blog about our new life there and all the little goings on that happen in our day to day lives. So here I AM!!It is all very new and confusing to me at the moment....for example:
- I am struggling big time to get images centred!
- I have no idea about css, what the??
- I have changed templates a gazillion times trying to work out which one works best for me and how on earth to get things in the right spot and I am still going!
- I seem to have a heck of a lot of trouble getting images to load in the right size and wish to goodness it could all be more straightforward
So I shall explain about the elusive Pear Tree Farm. My husband and I have been searching for a new place to call home for about 2 years now and after searching high and low, going through property after property, making offers, having our offers rejected, more searching, constant and almost addictive surveillance on domain.com, lots of tears (from me of course) a fair bit of negotiating, we bought a place!! I have inventively named it Pear Tree Farm (for all the pear trees that line the driveway....clever I know). We are in the process of moving and also getting our current house on the market. It is a big change for us all and one that we are ready for. It has been a challenging process but one that has taught us alot and to be honest I have come to love our existing house a whole lot more than I used to and...gasp I think I will indeed miss it quite alot. It has been a wonderful house for us and we have renovated it and made it lovely. Our first home together, we moved here after we were married and have lived there for nearly 5 years now. We brought our new little bubbie home from the hospital to this place and she has spent her first year here. It holds many precious memories and I will miss it.
Together we have painted, re-curtained (is that even a word?) the house and worked endlessly on the gardens clipping and pruning roses and creating an awesome and rather wild veggie patch. Here is a pic if it...and I am in there somewhere!!
It is so amazing to me that you can
We have had to weed this little patch so many times and I must say it will be nice when we move to Pear Tree Farm and all that weeding will be for keeps. Right now though we have to keep up the regular weeding so it will look nice and neat for potential buyers. Same goes for our little house, lots of cleaning under way at the moment. I will show you some pics soon. Looking forward to moving to PTF, am already mentally moving in, to own the truth.
So there you have it. I better go, my little O is letting me know in no uncertain terms that I am needed. I will keep you posted on all the little goings on here in our little place.
