our patch of dirt

Not one for wasting any time…… We have been on the lookout for property in Safety Beach for a little while now. We have looked at land as well as old houses we could pull down, old houses we could renovate, and newish houses we wouldn’t need to do anything to……

We have just found out that our offer has been accepted on a rather lovely patch of Safety Beach dirt just down the road from the beach!!

We are just a 5 minute walk away from the beach ……

A new adventure is about to begin…..

Now we start putting all the plans and dreams that we have had over the years together….. So excited to get started 🙂





I’m so very pleased to say that our house sold on auction day! The auction was a bit of a fizzer but we sold soon after and we are delighted that now we can move on to our next project!!!

The sky was dark and stormy when I got up on auction day but luckily the sun came out just before inspection time. I have never seen so many people in my house!!! It was really weird……. A giant thanks to all of our family and friends who were there to support us on the day and for all the lovely messages we have received…… You are all awesome!!!

Anyway, now the hunt begins for land on the mornington peninsula to build our “forever house”….. So excited!!!


one more sleep….


Tomorrow is the BIG day!! Tomorrow our home is being auctioned and hopefully will be sold. I have lived here for 21 years, all my babies have grown to adulthood here, so many wonderful memories……
How do I feel? I’m excited….. Looking forward to a new beginning. I’m also a little sad. It will feel very weird to go “home” somewhere else….. I hope a lovely young family will buy this house and that they will make as many amazing memories here as we have!
And if it doesn’t sell? We get to enjoy a finished house for a bit longer…… Either way we are winners!!
Thanks for all your well wishes and kind words over the last little while, it’s greatly appreciated!

To be continued…………….

open for inspection


Well here we are with just one week to go until the auction! The time has gone really quickly and I am pleased to say it has actually been pretty easy to keep everything nice. In fact it has been lovely to have such a clean house!!

We have had lots of people through, way more than I ever imagined we would and the feedback has been great. Our agent, Trevor Bowen, has been absolutely amazing!! He has worked so hard to get as many people to see the house as possible. He has been respectful of our time and privacy throughout the marketing period and has made us feel so comfortable throughout the whole process with his relaxed and friendly nature – feels like we have been friends for years.

It’s going to be a busy week with a few more “opens” and a few private viewings to get through and then the auction! See you here next week with the result!!
