Our House Is For Sale
We always knew 2014 was going to be a big year for us, I turned 50, we went on a fabulous trip to New York to celebrate, my older daughter turned 21, my youngest 16, now our house is for sale. Our Auction is this Saturday and I wanted to show you a few pics of our much loved home of ten years. A perfect family home, a happy home with lots of natural light that we’ve hosted many family gatherings and parties in. It’s with mixed emotions that we leave but with great excitement at being closer to family and moving closer to the city. It’s a move we’ve contemplated for a while and with my daughter Emma now happily living in Sydney for the last twelve months, we felt the time was right. Below is a picture of our fourth bedroom/second livingroom.
This is our kitchen, a room I’ve spent many hours in over the years, making family dinners, cooking for friends, extended family, my children’s friends when they’d come for dinner or a sleepover. Yep lots of pancakes have been made in this kitchen for post sleepover breakfast. I loved it when they were old enough to make their own and I could have a sleep in! I wouldn’t have it any other way though, yes of course I get sick of cooking sometimes the same as everybody else but essentially nothing feeds my soul more than feeding people..the art of hospitatlity, making people feel at ease and comfortable. I connect with people through food, it’s my way of giving them a piece of me.
This area has been great for parties and big gatherings, you can’t see it but french doors open onto the back garden, perfect for indoor/outdoor entertaining in Spring and Summer.
I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing my home, I’ve been missing from Farmhouse Home and commenting on my friends blogs as I’ve been so busy getting our house ready for sale, it’s a mammoth task, you don’t realise how big until you undertake it yourself. Soon, I want to share with you all a magazine my daughter Emma introduced me to recently, we’re both hooked. It’s called Mindfood, intelligent, engaging articles and delicious mouthwatering recipes. Emma was here from Sydney last weekend and asked me to make the Slow Roasted Cummin Lamb for Sunday night dinner, I did and it was the best slow cooked lamb recipe I’ve tasted, completely delicious.
Wish us luck for Saturday!
