Finally we are fully unpacked in our new home.. It has taken 4 maybe even 5 weeks to sort through the masses of things our little of family of 5 own!
Previously we had 4 bedrooms, 3 living areas, dining space,2 bathrooms.. I had a wardrobe the same size as the kitchen in our first home in Ireland.. And now we have 3 bedrooms, a small living room,1 bathroom and toilet combined. So squeezing everything in and making it look nice has been a challenge.

I have thrown things out, donated to charity, given to friends.. with so little space I crave a simple life surrounded with favourite things and things that we actually use.

So I finally managed to clean up  find some time the other day to get some photos...

Funnily enough we knew this house really well, some very good friends of ours lived here when they moved over from the U.K.and were working for the owner at the time.

 So we had spent many evenings here for BBQ's, catch ups..even some babysitting on my part.

The original owner is still also a racehorse trainer in Mornington and built the house himself and raised a family here, just as we are now.

One of the things that I loved about the house is that it is very much a blank canvas, there is nothing here that we cannot live with for the next few years until we renovate..

So that's it for now really, i have lots of little projects on the go that hopefully I can share along the way..

Lastly I wanted to share a photo of Little Lulu- who is growing so quickly and developing such a cheeky little personality, time really does fly when you are having fun.
