The Big Move

Four weeks after moving we finally have internet and phone connected. Apparently that is the standard time it takes Telstra to connect a new service. It's lucky the electricity suppliers aren't as slow.
Enough of the whinging -- The move went smoothly enough and most of the boxes have been unpacked now, although we still can't get our cars in the garage.

I don't think I'll ever get sick of the view. 

We brought quite a few plants with us for the new garden. Two trailer loads and some in the back of the car. There were so many I would love to have brought but I had to prioritise the space available.

I don't feel too bad about leaving them though. The people who bought the house love plants and gardening so I know that Missy's Garden is in good hands.

Currently everything is tucked along the side fence where they can get watered but be out of the sun and wind. I'm just hoping I can keep them alive until we can plant them out.

We have basically decided on a plan for the layout of the garden but haven't got very far yet. There's been quite a deal of rain which would be great for the garden (if we had one) but not particularly good for moving dirt around to create a garden.

In our neighbourhood, all of the houses are newly built so everyone is at various stages of building, moving in or creating their garden.  We compare notes on where to buy dirt, who to get to build fences, etc.

Oh, and most importantly..... Missy is quite comfortable with the move. She has a much smaller kingdom to reign over and guard, but it seems to suit her - being a very small dog and not as energetic as she once was. She can survey her yard and watch out for potential villains from the patio where her food bowls and day bed is kept. .


  1. I'm glad the move went well. :o) A smaller garden will be easier on everybody. Lovely view!

  2. I'm so happy that your move went well, and that you have settled in well into your new home....I was wondering how things went.
    Thank goodness Missy is happy with her new home too, you know she calls the shots....if it wasn't up to par you'd have to find another
    Don't worry, soon you'll have all your boxes unpacked and you will be able to use your garage.
    It must be a relief to know that the new owners of Missy's Garden love the garden and all the plants you left behind....they'll be in good hands.
    Have fun settling in!!

  3. Awesome! You have moved in! Gosh that view is amazing :) Exciting times, and it is nice that all your neighbours are also in the same boat so to speak. I look forward to seeing how your new garden progresses.

  4. Winter is quite good to start a new garden, is it from scratch? I am sure you will have in no time a beautiful garden again. Glad someone who loves your garden has taken over. Looking forward to see your progress.


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