Since I last posted here, dear readers, a lot has happened.

We sold our house in the urban wilds of Melbourne and moved to the beguiling shores of Lake Wendouree in Ballarat.

We decided to stop waiting for the life that was to come and start to live the life that we have now.

It is lovely here, colder, crisper and higher in altitude than Melbourne and it seems to be agreeing with me.

We are settling in to a new school, a new community and new vistas.

And waiting for the internet to be connected to our house. This post is courtesy of the public library!

  1. Oh, Rebecca!!
    This is so exciting and I’m so happy for you and your family. I’m really looking forward to hearing all about your new adventures and also to hear just exactly why you decided to move.

  2. Gorgeous! So peaceful. There’s more *so* much more!) to Life than the rat race. Good for you all to have figured that out.

  3. I do love that, living the life we have! Have to keep remembering that 🙂
    Thrilled that weather is agreeing with you.

  4. What a lovely place to move to. I hope the calming views and quiet countryside help to speed your recovery. Good to hear from you.

  5. Excellent news. May it continue. Nicola moves house tomorrow to the banks of the Merri Creek. Insect wildlife remains to be seen come summer. All the best, Wendy

  6. Oh my goodness Rebecca….looks like a beautiful area to live in. I am happy that you are seeming to feel better in this climate. I am visiting my son in Nome, Alaska right now…about 16 hrs. of light….hard to not stay up late! I will have to write you a real letter soon and send you some photos of my flower gardens and recent art I have done. Loved the sweater you re-did and downsized in one of your previous blog posts. I knitted a lot of shawls over the past 6 months while watching Acord (British TV and just finished watching a New Zealand detective series called Brokenwood). I love Brit tv. Take care and I’ll get a letter out before winter arrives. Always, Joanie

  7. Hello Rebecca! I’ve just moved to Ballarat too. If you feel like a coffee catch up please give me a call.

  8. Rebecca, happy is she who knows the country gods. It’s great you already feel a little better. Wonderful news.

  9. Oh, those views make my hand itch for my camera. It’s coming along next time we visit!!!
    Can’t wait until you guys are hooked up to the net again. What a pain!!

  10. Wonderful Rebecca…Your new home looks very serene and peaceful…nature can always be relied upon to elevate our spirits and ground us at the same time.

    I am so happy that you have found somewhere to fluff your feathers and know that you are home…

  11. So many childhood memories Rebecca. We lived in Mill Street just near the Lake. Happy to hear that the air is agreeing with you and that you are feeling a little better.

  12. I had begun to suspect, from your instagram posts. How lovely this looks. I hope that it will continue to agree with you and your family! Ballarat is a special and lovely spot. I hope you will be very happy there.

  13. Congratulations! That is so exciting. Your photos are beautiful and I can’t wait to hear about your adventures in this lovely new place.
