Something exciting is happening!


It doesn’t quite require a marching band but hey, one can dream right? You’ve possibly noticed I’ve had a wee facelift (yes I’m speaking in an Irish accent now, that’s a Saint Pat’s parade I’m marching in) but I also have a small announcement to make that doesn’t involve custom style sheets, SEO, HTML and Firebug and that pleases me greatly.

I will be doing a spot of writing over at Kidspot. I’m writing for a campaign focusing on rural, regional and city dwellers. I’ll be interviewing a diverse range of bloggers and families about their lifestyle and today’s post is about the benefits and pitfalls of making a sea/tree/urban change. I would love it if you checked it out.

Living in an urban area, it’s not difficult to appreciate the reasons why people seek to make the transition – gridlock, high mortgages, cancelled trains, disconnected communities, cost of living – they can all have you clicking the search button on a real estate website quicker than you can say ‘rat race’.

If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably dreamed of escaping to a quaint coastal town too. I do it so often, I almost find myself forgetting about the snakes. And the spiders. And the jumping jacks. And those rabbits with the freakishly large eyes….almost.
