These times they are a changin'

So much change is happening in my life and that of my little family at the moment!! We are leaving the cosy unit that we've called home for four and a half years now to move into a cute three bedroom cottage about 5 minutes away from where we are now. The kidlets are very excited about having their own rooms and a backyard which includes monkey bars, slide, swing, sandpit and the best bit (well according to the kids anyway!!) is the cubbyhouse in the corner of the yard. This is our new humble abode....
I'm excited and motivated at the moment - both to declutter what we've got here in the process of the move and in the challenge of turning the four walls of our new 'house' into 'our home'. I've just bought two books about handmade and making and decorating homes through handmade. Nervous would be the best description about how I'm feeling about the yard/garden though - I'm definitely not a green thumb (in fact purple would be a better colour description!!!). In fact, I don't even own any gardening equipment - no spades, shovels or mowers in my shed so I'm about to embark on a whole new adventure! Wish me luck!!
