New blinds.
New blinds.

One of the first things we did when we settled on the new house was to pull down the horrible curtains and blinds on all the windows, especially in the kitchen. Ugh, think pelmets and heavy curtains and roman blinds in weird shades of green and peach. Horrible. Then we had the house painted and […]

Slate tiles.
Slate tiles.

When I first saw the house I couldn’t understand why anyone would put a pathway of slate tiles from the front door, down the passage and into the kitchen. After living here for a month I kind of get it. The slates are actually rather beautiful, they hide the dirt, they are hard wearing in […]

Ceiling revealing.
Ceiling revealing.

Last week our lovely builder popped round to take down the damp bits of ceiling in the rumpus room which had been damaged by the water leak from the dishwasher. This was an existing leak that we knew about when we bought the house, it was pointed out during the building inspection and our independent […]

Moving in.
Moving in.

Moving out of our old house was smooth and relatively stress free. I spent the majority of the morning with the girls up at the shopping centre having coffee and the rest of the morning at the library choosing books with the girls while Ron helped the guys move all our furniture and belongings into […]

Children and change.
Children and change.

How are the girls you ask? How did they feel about leaving our old house, do they love the new house? Has the transition been fraught with emotional distress or has it all been a big adventure? Well, firstly thanks for asking and secondly, the girls are doing really well. Remarkably well. In fact I […]

Moving out.
Moving out.

I have moved house a lot, moved countries a fair bit, carried my belongings around in a backpack and had a burly crew of men box it all up into a container and ship it across the ocean, but this move was different. This move was tied up in all sorts of emotional strings. This […]

Priorities.
Priorities.

Right now we could talk about this….. Or we could focus on this instead. This being one of the biggest reasons why we took a huge risk on this house…… The quiet culdesac, the lovely neighbours, the better postcode, the 200m walk up the road to an awesome park….. The change in our living space […]

We are in!
We are in!

On the morning of Tuesday 24th April 2012 at 7am we moved into our new house. A mere 109 days after we first walked through and looked past the dirt, grime and neglect to see the family home that we could grow into. Its all starting to finally feel real now that we have all […]

Free wifi with a hashbrown

We have been out of the old house for a week now and my inlaws have graciously welcomed us and all our clobber into their home. It’s been a strange week, I am caught between a huge organizational rush and being a full time childcare provider. It’s proving impossible to do much with both the […]

Easter fun and games.
Easter fun and games.

Our Easter plans changed dramatically at the beginning of the year when we had our offer on the new house accepted with an extended settlement that put the move-in date bang on the Easter long weekend. We usually go camping with Ron’s parents for Easter at the lovely campsite on the northern beaches in Sydney […]

The beginning – the new house.
The beginning - the new house.

Hate it when wordpress eats my blog post. To sum up, we are surrounded by the chaos of moving house, boxes, mess, disorganisation and at 7am on Tuesday morning the movers are arriving to take everything away for 8 days while we prepare the new house for painting and cleaning and getting ready to move […]

The final piece of the puzzle – Part IV

(I am keeping this brief because I am off to Melbourne tomorrow for the Digital Parents Conference! I can’t wait to catch up with old friends, meet up with new friends and spend some down time with special friends! Ron will be solo parenting for the next four days, wish him luck!) You can find […]

The tale and the saga – Part III
The tale and the saga - Part III

(The photos in this post are the ones I took for our marketing campaign, honestly, one the most stressful photoshoots I have ever done! I felt as though the sale of our house depended on my photographs!) The first few weeks of having our house on the market went really well. We had record numbers […]

The tale of two houses – Part II
The tale of two houses - Part II

You can find Part I here…… Where did I leave the story, aah, yes, we bought a new house while still living in a homewe already owned! Thanks to all the research Ron had been doing over the previous months and a good relationship with the estate agents that we bought our existing home from […]

The tale begins – Part I
The tale begins - Part I

Last Thursday was a big day in the White household and I was finally able to spill the beans on our huge news. We have sold our house! It’s hard to explain why I haven’t blogged about all the massive events that have taken place this year already, many of you have noticed how scarce […]
