I am a British born, living in Canada. Moved to the countryside in 2009 to a 1909 stone farmhouse. In 2014 we are going to embark on a new adventure with our home ownership.

Life is never ever dull around here and I always have a tale to tell!!

We have a 5 month old Easter Bunny...........

She has now mastered the art of rolling over.....so even taking a photo is something that needs to be done fast before she loses interest and rolls over!!

Her favourite food is now pureed, carrots, rutabaga and sweet potato, and of course any fruit.

She starts swimming lessons tomorrow, and I am going so there will be photos!!

New house coming along nicely.  Garage door on now and the stair railings, going down the basement.

Put the lawn tractor on Kijiji, had one reply at $5,500, holding out for the $6,000 though.

Heading out today, will report back telling what I was up too tomorrow!!

Impromptu Garage Sale

As I have mentioned before I have been selling things on Kijiji.  With the weather being so much nicer on Saturday we had a tidy out and I posted a number of things on Kijiji.  Lots of emails later, I tried to coordinate as many people as possible to come over on Sunday as dh had the day off and I figured he could help folk take things apart and load them into the vehicles.

I also figured while folk were coming for the things they wanted from Kijiji, I would see if I could sell them some other things.
Worked a charm and nearly $900 later, we have not only got rid of a lot of things, we even sold things that I never thought we would get rid of.  Dh hates doing garage sales, but even he got into the swing of it!!

I will say that dealing with folk on Kijiji does try your patience, but needs must.

We have not put the lawn tractor up for sale yet, but as we want $6,000 for it, I feel we should put it on Kijiji sooner rather than later as it may take a while to sell.  We do have a regular lawn mower that we can use to cut around the house, if we have too.

Two gorgeous girls.........

Finally got dd to give me permission to post a photo of her.  Just love this photo of her and Nora.

Nora's outfit is from The Gap, just love it.
 Here she is talking to Sophie, the must have toy for all babies nowadays!!

 She was all dressed up to go to her future husbands first birthday party!!  If that falls through though there is always Prince George!!!
