Catch That Mountain View

Today A and I 'settled' on our first home together in the Blue Mountains - the world heritage listed area west of Sydney. It's my very own "tree change". My last day of work is tomorrow, I drive up to the mountains.. and tomorrow night it's champagne and takeaway as we open the door together on our new life, new home. Then come Saturday morning we start pulling up vinyl, sanding floors, painting walls, cleaning, cleaning, cleaning. Our modest "fibro majestic" is smack in the middle of Katoomba - a small village near the top of the mountains. It has a granny flat out the back - to turn into my studio, a big old shed down the end of the yard, which could one day be a play area for A's kids. It has a good size yard, big enough for kids, chooks, ducks and vege patches. There is a leanto made of found bits of gorgeous colour rusty iron - which could be an artwork in it's self. It's not big, but it's ours. It has little areas everywhere, add ons, and doors that go no-where. Nooks and crannies - in fact it was so cluttered when we looked at it, we have only just realised there is a fireplace in the lounge room. So far we have bought one can of paint (!) and one roll of beautiful wallpaper. (From Porters paint - have a look here - its the bug wallpaper). Here I go.
