Monday Harvest – 29 April, 2013

Well the sum total of my harvest this week was two small zucchinis, a few chives, some parsley and thyme.  None of which I managed to photograph.  Instead I thought I would share a few other major events that occurred over the last week.

Firstly…..

We sold our house!  It was a nerve-wracking experience, both the month of opens and the actual auction, but in the end we got a great result and have much more flexibility in terms of deciding what to do next now.  For me I’d be pleased NEVER to have to get a house ready for inspection again…. at least not with small children.  The BIG question now is where do we go?  That’s still up for debate, but now with a 90 day timeline (…. we do have a backup plan though).

Secondly….

Fairies invading the house to help Miss Four celebrate her birthday.  She was especially pleased that Pa and her Uncles manned up and wore their wings with pride and good humour. Note the dog even got in on the festivities. Of course on the menu we had fairy bread, butterfly cakes, cheesy wands and a fairy house cake.  It was just family and all done quickly given the busy, busy month we’ve had, but she had a lovely time and was suitable spoiled. 

This hasn’t really been a harvest Monday post, I hope you don’t mind my digression and if you’re keen to see some proper harvest click here.

  1. That is a very cut birthday party. And a very cute little one, too. 🙂

    Yey! Congratulations on a good sale and a lovely birthday party! So any things to get sorted and such good outcomes from all that work!

  3. Jan says:

    Congratulations on the house sale. Can’t wait to see where you end up moving to.

    Congratulations on the house sale. Did you make the cake? If it was me I would be talking that up – very impressive work. I grew up in Bullengarook (between Gisborne and Bacchus Marsh) and went school in Gisborne. My parents still live in the area so if you want info on that part of commutable ruralness then drop me an email. Do you read Bowerbird Blue? She lives in the Macedon Ranges too with a young family, if you are considering Macedon and surrounds she might be worth contacting. Anyway, lovely that your blogging mojo has returned.

      Yes, I did make the cake… not bad hey! I’ve got another one to make next week for Miss One, then nothing for two years. Mr Good is on cake-making/party organising duties next year!
      We are looking in the are you mentions and around the Macedon Ranges, as well as a little further afield west of the city. Some of the areas we’d love to live in have become a little too expensive for us unfortunately (given that the whole idea is to reduce the mortgage so we can have one of us at home until the girls are at school). We really want a bit more land than we currently have and don’t find new housing estates at all appealing so that also limits the options in some places. The older houses in the older/original parts of these towns don’t come onto the market at nearly the same rate as brand new house and land packages. It could take us a while for us to find what we want. I’ll check out the blog you suggested as well.
