The baby house is what my cousin calls the house you bring your babies home to, and today the cooling off period closed for the sale of our baby house. Definitely mixed emotions here.
Sad, because we bought the land as an engaged couple, built our dream house on it, making every decision on what the house would look like, colour of the bricks and roof tiles, kitchen cupboards and countertops, paint colours, light fightings, everything. And we had it just about perfect, having finally bought all the furniture to fill it and to have it looking like we wanted it to. But unfortunately we outgrew the backyard some years ago, our yearning for big vegie gardens and orchards meant we were destined to move at some point.
And this year was the year it happened. We went from a 735 square metre block to a 19 980 one. And we love it. And even though we know we can and will make this place just as lovely, we miss our beautiful house.
But we are also happy, because now we can get one with making this place our home. Build the big shed, extend the house, start the vegie patch and orchard. Whilst dreaming of making it just as perfect for us as our baby house was.
