I can’t remember ever not wanting to live in the country… just enough land for some chooks, veggies, fruit trees and garden. I’ve long since moved on from the thought of a large property with horses and cattle.
After half a century (that sounds so old) and over 30 years of professional life, it is time to take the step. My original intention was to balance working in the city a few days a week, then retreating to the country for the rest of the week, but country life soon won out and I’m now living here permanently (since November 2013) and doing my best to become part of the local community. Life took another turn when my short lived retirement turned into retail shop owner when I opened Convent and Chapel Wool Shop in nearby Rylstone.
I had never anticipated living in a Spanish Mission Convent in Central NSW but we have now found each other and are having some rollicking adventures.
