Our house sold very quickly - in only a few days. We had a great real estate agent. She recommended viewings by appointment rather than an open house - A lot more work for her but better for us. The first viewing was for 3 couples, two of whom wanted to come back for a second look. The next day she made 2 more appointments for viewings later that week. Then the next day she called to say someone had made an offer (which we accepted).  Now two weeks later the sale has become official and Missy’s garden will soon have new people to care of it and enjoy it.

We will be meeting the buyers tomorrow, but our agent said they want to keep the chickens and the fish and they love the garden. They sound like exactly the right sort of people for our house and garden. The chickens will be happy. I had found a potential new home for them, but now they don’t have to move which is better. Settling into a new flock can be rather traumatic until the pecking order is established.
Removalists have been arranged for 3 weeks’ time so we have started packing. It's going to be a busy time. There is still work to be done on the new house but it is ready to live in as is. Hopefully I'll be too busy to get too emotional at the thought of saying good-bye to the garden.
Another thing to consider is the future of Missy’s Garden (the blog). If I no longer have the garden there will be nothing much to blog about, but it is something I really enjoy. We will be starting a new garden from scratch (there's only dirt there at the moment) plus we will be discovering Bribie Island and whatever awaits us there. That should give me lots to write about
.......I think I might start a new blog for our new home.


  1. The beginning of a new chapter. Congratulations on selling it so quickly, as sad as it will be to say goodbye. I'm sure you will find things to blog about even having a smaller garden, and whatever it is you choose, I look forward to it :)

  2. Congratulations on the quick sale! Good luck with the move and a new blog sounds good :)

  3. Sooo sooo HAPPY for you that the house has sold quickly and that the new owners are nice and want to keep the chooks, fish, and the garden exactly the same.
    It will be hard to say goodbye to Missy's Garden, but you are moving on to new adventures and I'm sure that your new blog will be filled with lots of interesting stuff...besides you still have to keep us updated on Missy and the beginning of planning and planting your new garden.

  4. Selling a house can be so stressful. It's always a relief to have a buyer quickly. If you start a new blog, we'll be there to see you start a new chapter in your life. :o)

  5. Awesome news, I am a bit late catching up here, but looking forward to seeing how your new garden pans out.


I would love to know what you think and appreciate your comments.
