So, it has been an extraordinarily long time between posts and before I get back into (hopefully) regular posts I wanted to give you an update on whats been going on in the last year.
In the middle of 2015 I moved back to my home town, Shepparton, in country Victoria. My (now previous) job took up a great deal of my time and energy. I would work 12-14 hour days 5-6 days a week and have absolutely no energy to do anything other than lay on the couch on the days when I wasn’t working, let alone try an write coherent sentences. I got the the point were I was extremely discontent with waking up, going to work, coming home and going straight to bed, and then waking up to repeat the cycle. Don’t get me wrong. I like hard work. Thrive on it actually! But my dreams of small scale farming grew stronger and stronger with my decreasing time able to devote to it. So, I took the leap. I moved back to rural Victoria. I’m still in town, but it takes me 3 minutes to get to and from work (so the entire day isn’t over by the time a get home), I’m not screaming in traffic jams, and I have a yard to plant things in!! If you’ve been following me on Instagram you would have seen the sporadic photos of my makeshift raised garden beds that I had a lot of fun with over the growing season, just dipping my toe in the vegetable growing pool. I had some success (particularly with the easy things i.e. zucchini) and some fails (my potato tower didn’t yield an abundant harvest), but I’m now in the process of uprooting my herbs into pots and disassembling my brick garden beds to make way for my new house!! Yes, that’s right, I’m officially an adult. I don’t think much of it at this stage, but maybe when I have my four walls and a roof forking out so much money that I don’t physically have will seem like a sensible idea. I do like the idea of doing exactly what I like in my garden however….and getting chickens!!
Well, I’ll leave it there. I don’t want to bore you too much with lots of words. Tune in next time for all my favourite podcast recommendations!
