Greetings from our very own mountain cottage in Katoomba. A few days after my last post we received the call we'd anxiously been awaiting, loaded all our worldly possessions into the car and headed for the hills with a bicycle and ironing board precariously teetering on the roof. The first night we slept on the floor and the first week was spent without a fridge.... As a habitual tea drinker I poured far more chunky milk into my cup than I'd care to recall. Thankfully we are now sleeping soundly and enjoying chilled perishables.
One of the biggest perks of living out here is having a beautiful garden full of flowers, I can't resist pinning them in my bob and filling the house with fragrant blooms. We also have a big ol' lime tree in the back yard and lavender bushes as far as the eye can see, heck its like the Garden of Eden!
It always slips my mind just how long and just how many pennies it takes to set up a house, but slowly enough this funny little cottage is beginning to feel like home. Once we're all settled I'll be sure to share some pictures of our handsome set up, suffice to say the mountain op shops have old fashioned pricing and have treated us mighty kindly.
