This is the view from my office. I watch the kids going to school, the young mums pushing prams and the dog walkers all go past. Some days there are kookburras swooping for insects. The house in the background hasn't changed since I was a child.
This is the view from the dining room which is rarely used these days but is my domain. When Keaghan was newly engaged and looking for a wedding venue I tried to point out the possibilities in this place. It's not fancy but it's relaxed and spacious and very, very reasonably priced. I'm sure it would look fabulous with some nice table cloths and flowers.Of course, as a newly engaged young woman I wouldn't have seen this as a possible wedding venue, I didn't have the imagination to do anything different to the standard reception hall or restaurant so I can't blame the young couple.
The building you can see across the grass is part of the hostel accomodation on site. I think it would be a delightful place to live. It's also not fancy but it's well maintained, clean and quiet. The pest control man we had in recently said he loves coming to this site because it's like a sactuary. I don't think you get a better compliment than that.
I should add, I was walking through the dining room this week and saw a man in hi-vis sitting at this table. i didn't recognise him and wondered who he was. Then I noticed his motor bike. The postie was having a cheeky lunch here!
