New beginnings

For the last four and a half years I have lived with my wife and two young and energetic daughters in a two bedroom flat, about 9kms from the centre of Sydney. It was convenient, but very small. And living with three other families in the block was far from ideal.

So we have now moved to our little oasis ten minutes walk from Maroubra Beach, Sydney. We have chickens (Snowy and Sophie), raised veggie beds, a big outdoor deck for entertaining and more importantly space for the kids to run and space for mum and dad to feel less stressed. The kids get up every morning to check if any eggs have been laid.

Until last week, I had never eaten a proper, freshly laid egg.  Oh my. The egg was creamy, yummy, and so colourful.

Yes, our place is a bit further away, but it’s a small price to pay to have privacy and peace and quiet. It’s the reason I’ve been quiet of late (that as well as work), so expect more food posts to come as we settle in. Below is a selection of pictures from our new piece of paradise to whet your apetite.

  1. Honestly, I got tears in my eyes. Your new place looks wonderful and the photos attest to the fact that you are finding so much beauty. I especially love the photo of the spider.

  2. Welcome back! Glad that all is now settling well for you. Fresh laid eggs from your own chickens really do take some beating (no pun intended!) don´t they?! Wish you and your family well in this new stage of your lives and look forward to reading about it!

    Touching series of images. Real sense of being there. I think they are more about how you feel than what is there.
