I have loved this house beyond measure. It has kept my family safe and protected, seen us through good times and bad. The hideway has been just that – a secluded, peaceful spot set amongst the trees – a secret place with a mellow, comfortable and convivial vibe. And oh the parties we’ve had!
I have dreaded this day for so long, but I have learned in this last year, that to look back instead of forward can be as detrimental as standing still. And so, with only a little residual sentimentality (sniff sniff), I give my heartfelt thanks for the experience in this home, which will now be enjoyed by a whole new family ready to receive its warm embrace, and take with me the spirit and energy that will provide the beating heart to our new home in Australia.
