The Front Gates

Today I thought I would begin to show you around the property.  

We fell in love with this place over 7 years ago when we bought it and when I walk around it today I realise how much we have done to it.  From the gorgeous colourbond fence you can see at the front to the additional garden sheds etc - We have actually done quite a bit in that time so it's not all bad.

Now don't look at all of those grass and weeds - They are on the short list and won't be there too much longer - They are on my "next week"list.  So welcome to "Goldwen Lodge" our home.

We are very lucky to live in a semi-rural area only 20 minutes from Hobart.


Come on in through the front gates.  You can see the "Fee Mobile" in the car port and the doggy trailer too.  That's what we hook on the back when we go off on doggy racing days.

My husband is a greyhound trainer, in fact that's how we met well over 20 years ago.  We both have a "love" of greyhounds and both our fathers were also greyhound trainers.

I should add that we are supporters of the Greyhound Adoption Programme for retired racing greyhounds and care for our doggy's like children.  Greyhound racing is extremely well governed in Australia and the care of our greyhounds is our priority - They even live in airconditioned comfort.


As you keep going up the driveway you arrive in "doggy land".  I'll show you that another day ......


Off to the right of the car port is our home and the home of "Designs By Fee"and "Fee's Shabby Shack"our home businesses.


We love our home and now that I am currently unemployed it is our priority to get it back looking spic and span and to try to earn enough money to pay the mortgage in the interim until we decide what the future may hold for us. 



The studio and "Fee's Shabby Shack"are located to the left of the door.  So if you ever come to visit now you won't get lost.  

I have been a good girl spending 1 hour a day outside every day this week.  Today I planted lots of new plants and I have even spent a number of hours behind the lawn mower.

I could SO get used to this lifestyle.  I am nutting out a plan at the moment to try and make it happen.  Stay tuned.



Before I toddle off to pack today's orders I will leave you with the sign hanging on our front door area.  You all know just how much I love my pussy cats and I believe that this quote is just so true.

Hugs,

Fee xx
