Day 2 – “I Can’t Believe This Is Our House!”
That sums it up really. Today we drove south to Kyogle to pick up the keys for our new home. As we drove down the mountain, past our property, the excitement began to grow.

As we drove along the muddy driveway we discovered we had indeed inherited to plump and healthy chooks, both of whom seemed to have a slight death wish as they meandered along in front of the car, much to the amusement of the kids.
By now it was lunchtime, so after a wander through the house, opening and closing every door we sat down to our first meal in our new home.
