Not much happening this week as we wait for the steel and sheeting to enclose the deck, so it’s a good time to reflect on how far we’ve come in 13 working days. We’ve positioned the home to catch the morning sun and can’t wait to wake up to that view each and every morning

Quotes for the next stages are coming in as we select the people we want to work with.

Just a snapshot of big things coming soon. Tell me what you think?

I’ve just returned home from 5 days away in New Zealand for work and wow, just wow. We are now at Day 13 completed.

Now we need to wait for more products as we enclose the deck and need flooring, framing and corodeck to finalise the changes. Fingers crossed we will get by end next week.

Will keep you updated 🏡

Hello lovelies, I’ve been asked what style I’m going for, so I thought it was time I started sharing some of my ideas. I guess if I had to categories I’m going for a modern farmhouse style (we live on 20 acres). As I share my design ideas I hope you will gain a sense of my vision. Bear in mind I have flip flopped a little along the way. But now the fun starts as I can start buying the elements that will transform my vision to reality. My first share is my bathroom. The one non negotiable for me was a bath, and the room has really taken shape around this as my hero piece. Would love your comments and suggestions, especially from my fellow interior design students. I’m trying to keep a monochrome neutral palette here and can introduce pops of colour with the towels and accessories.

Well what a week. We’ve built 3 homes but this is by far the fastest build. We are loving the experience. Here’s to the first week. 🥂

Spent a lovely morning with Dad and Mikey at this morning. The storm hit some of the tulips but there was still plenty to see and do. Slightly overcast but that was quite nice too! All in all highly recommended.

Navigating the loss of my mother has certainly been fairly tough, there is no rule book for grief. There will be good days and bad days, but I take comfort that the pain will eventually lessen when I remember her.

Lovely breakfast with hubs and Izzy dog 🐶 then a trip to the Pinjarra Markets at Edenvale Heritage Precinct and then home to enjoy a cuppa and a delicious apple tart!

Lovely morning. Happy Sunday everyone 😘

It’s been a long time coming, but we are now so close to starting our tiny house build 🏡 only a few weeks away. We have the cleanup crew in to prep the area 🐑 and we will be good to go!

To all my wonderful friends and family I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas.

What a year! We said goodbye to family and friends and although hard we know their suffering has ended and they are at peace.

As we celebrate our first Christmas on the farm we look back to when we purchased 20 acres that had no infrastructure and set about creating our off grid regenerative paradise.

Mocha arrived as a scared 2 year old paddock reared cow, even her arrival video had 480k views. This morning I gave her a full brush down. To say she’s come along way in a few months is truly an understatement. She’s gentle, loves carrots and her sister Moo.

Moo arrived as a cheeky 3.5 month old and stole our heart, she is gentle, sweet and a wonderful sister to Mocha. We maintained the connection forged early and she’s now a lovely cuddly little girl.

Honey and Maple were hand reared from 3 days old, like twins one minute and completely different the next. Mischievous but also so much fun! Everything we build has to be with them in mind “is it goat proof”? Maple scratching her head on the brush head Michael attached the fence, got an astonishing 120k views, and is our second highest reel on insta still, so cute!

The chickens have come and gone, we bought 6 ex battery hens and have 4 left in total. Our girls allow us to enjoy eggs on toast every weekend morning and they help clean up all the bugs in the garden and veggie patch.

We plan to build our kit home, or at least start the build, who knows what is in store for this year, but that’s our plan.

I started a new job as Regional Manager for Blue Zebra Insurance this year and am blessed to work from the farm. This allows me to have lunch time cuddles if I want to.

Well, my lovelies, thanks for your friendship and here’s to a fabulous New Year.

Merry Christmas. It’s the most wonderful time of the year 🎼 🎶 🎤




It’s the most wonderful time of the year
With the kids jingle belling
And everyone telling you be of good cheer
It’s the most wonderful time of the year

It’s the hap-happiest season of all
With those holiday greetings and gay happy meetings
When friends come to call
It’s the hap-happiest season of all

There’ll be parties for hosting
Marshmallows for toasting
And caroling out in the snow
There’ll be scary ghost stories
And tales of the glories of
Christmases long, long ago

It’s the most wonderful time of the year
There’ll be much mistltoeing
And hearts will be glowing
When loved ones are near
It’s the most wonderful time of the year

There’ll be parties for hosting
Marshmallows for toasting
And caroling out in the snow
There’ll be scary ghost stories
And tales of the glories of
Christmases long, long ago

It’s the most wonderful time of the year
There’ll be much mistltoeing
And hearts will be glowing
When love ones are near
It’s the most wonderful time
Yes the most wonderful time
Oh the most wonderful time
Of the year

Friends, do you want to travel to Bali, but don’t like the traffic and chaos once you arrive? Why not take advantage of a stay at Risata Bali, 6 minutes from the airport but so quiet you will be shocked (the planes fly out over the water not overhead).
Our unit is available for use by family and friends for A$60 a night during 2023. There is no minimum nights and as you are paying us you can be certain the booking is secured. We have been to Risata many times and love our special Bali base. Any questions feel free to DM me.

Isn’t it time you had a holiday? Want to escape to Bali? Read my next post for details on how you can get an incredible Bali experience staying in our unit in South Kuta

What a day! It started well, I was going to wear a dress that I bought online, white with black dots, very suitable for a funeral. We live in a shed so lighting isn’t great. As soon as I realised it was TOTALLY SEE THROUGH we had a mad dash to a boutique in Como to grab a new dress, thanks to the 2 lovely ladies who helped me in my time of need, thanks to hubs who foot the bill as part of my birthday present.
Off to the funeral in Fremantle, terribly sad to say goodbye to someone so young.
Then a work function straight after, I was sad but let myself enjoy catching up with friends and colleagues.

A pretty good end to a sad day. Thanks to Cowden Insurance Brokers celebrating 50 years

I am blessed 🥹

Sunday we had a huge job to do. We needed to move the goat pen outside the house block as everyone is getting older, bigger and a bit more pushy when it comes to feed time. The cows no longer wait to be fed and I have a few bruised feet to show for it.

Anyway, we needed to move them out and that means moving the temporary fencing we have from Bunnings (best decision ever to buy temp fencing until we know exactly where things are staying long term), anyway, Sunday was the day.

Up early, took all day, lathered sunscreen before we started and again at 11am but I wasn’t covered up and so here’s the result of an extreme (12) sun rating 🤦‍♀️

Anyway, job done, goats in new enclosure, fencing moved, chickens happy and I’m now dealing with my choice that day.

As you know we are as organic and chemical free as possible, so here’s my go to for bad sunburn. This is a real photo of my back from Sunday 🤦‍♀️

Lavaderm with Aloe, Helichrysum, Northern Lights Black Spruce and Lavender (google “benefits of lavender oil and burns”)
Plus
Aloe Vera cooling spray, kept in the fridge (google Aloe Vera Salicylic acid)

Redness still there, pain much better.

The funny thing about those photo booths is you are given 4 seconds to pose. It’s a window of opportunity to let your personality shine, one shot to capture it!

This isn’t what Eminem had in mind (I’m sure) when he wrote these lyrics, but a timely reminder for myself to enjoy and embrace every opportunity, every moment, even exhausted.

This month is full of fun, family and friends. Exhaustingly full, for this empath, but I’m so blessed to have this opportunity to seize.

Look
If you had
One shot
Or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted
In one moment
Would you capture it
Or just let it slip?

The key to a happy marriage is giving as much as taking, For always sharing a dream in the making, For talking things through, and working problems out, For having a friendship, that’s never in doubt, And for the many ways 2 hearts discover, That through life’s journey they can count on each other.

Happy 28th wedding anniversary to my very special husband, my best friend, my travel buddy, my farmer, my love. 🥰🥂🎉

How often do you say NO and then add ‘I’m really sorry I’ve got …. ‘ Blah blah blah

Your reason is your reason, it probably will sound like an excuse to the other person anyway and honestly anything won’t seem justified to them because it’s their thing and you said NO!

So just say NO, you can add a ‘sorry NO’ if you are sorry, but don’t feel guilty for having a life, having things on, needing notice.

Especially at this time of year.

Even planning to stay home and recharge is a good excuse to say no to ‘another’ event.

Recently I was asked to attend something through work, 2 days before the event I was asked, I said NO, I had already planned my week so couldn’t make it.

It was a huge event (I realised when I saw the photos after), people flew in from other states to attend, so why was I invited 2 days before the event? Glad I said NO and didn’t change my plans and rearrange what had been booked for ages. Don’t expect people will drop their plans for you.

If you really want someone to attend, give them notice, the more the better, a month should be a minimum!

Do you agree?

Was so pleased to have the opportunity to hear Damien Coates speak on behalf of Black Dog Institute about his mental health journey. Collectively we raised over $30k during the for this amazing cause.
Mental Health struggles need to be normalised to lose the stigma. It is normal to need a mental health break. Let’s change the term “sick day” to “wellness day” because sometimes we just need to take a day to find our balance again.

Personally I know I’m an 8+ hour girl and when my sleep is disrupted (like it was over the last few days) my mental health suffers. I need to prioritise myself to get my balance back.

Marketing is designed to make us buy things. Things we need, things we don’t, things we never knew we wanted until the advert tells us we must have it.

By living sustainably are you therefore leaning towards a minimalist lifestyle? Do they go hand in hand?

One definition says that “Sustainability consists of fulfilling the needs of current generations without compromising the needs of future generations, while ensuring a balance between economic growth, environmental care and social well-being.”

Interesting 🤔 Thoughts? 💭

Happy Diwali to my Indian friends🪔 Flashback to our amazing Indian holiday and to fulfilling a lifelong dream to visit the Taj Mahal.

Diwali, which is a national holiday across India, is typically celebrated by socialising and exchanging gifts with family and friends. Many people light earthen oil lamps or candles, and fireworks are set off as part of the celebrations. Diwali typically runs for 5 days with a couple of holidays.

You are under no obligation to be the same person you were yesterday. This resonated with me. Working out, is a choice. Not working out, is a choice. Doing nothing is a choice. We choose our present and our future. I’m changing every day just from my experiences. The farm is changing every day as we grow and build our

It can be a difficult question, but asking “R U Ok?” can be the first step in helping someone in emotional distress.

Today is R U Ok? Day, an opportunity for us to check in with the people in our lives, and to put a spotlight on the conversation around mental health and su***de prevention.

While Australians in rural communities enjoy higher life satisfaction than those in metropolitan areas, within our communities the people facing mental health challenges can really suffer.

Australian su***de rates are 67 per cent higher in rural and regional communities than in capital cities.
