We finally made it out the other side of the packing and settlement and headed down South! The last few days post settlement were sheer madness and our trailer was a sight to behold! Who knew you could fit so much on a little 7 x 5 number. Up at the crack of dawn to miss Sydney’s peak hour – one thing we definitely won’t miss, our trip down was a happy one, particularly as the weather was getting warmer the further South we went. By the time we hit Bendigo it was a balmy 22 degrees.
It has only been 6 weeks but seems like a lot longer. In this time the kids have settled into school amazingly well – thank goodness, and Robin and I have been slowly sorting ourselves out. I have to say I think it would have been easier to move overseas than interstate! Especially where Telcos are involved!
We have finally settled on some wonderful rural living space. A lovely 20 hectares 10 minutes out of Bendigo in the town of Sedgwick. Now we begin the build. We have decided on a house and depending on council we hope to be finished by mid next year. For any of you eager to come visit us here are the directions -Head out of town on Carpenter Street, pass Spring Gully Pub along the Mandurang/Sedgwick Road, travel 12.5km to Heritage Drive, turn left into Heritage Drive, continue 1.5klms to Dreschler Road, continue all the way until Edenvale road follow this halfway and your there!
