Guess what I'll be doing over the next few weeks?

This is the house that my mother and I are going to live in, gulp, Together! She's 84 and needs to be with someone so we're setting up home in this large Federation style house. It's just around the corner from where I live now, and I'll leave all my sewing there for the time being, so that I can go and escape the throes of shifting Mum's stuff.

Son Matt will continue to live where we are now, so I'll have two homes virtually- lots of room to spread out.

This is me opening the door for the first time- Yaay!!!!

There are some rooms that need painting, so it will be a fortnight or so before we really move. There's not a lot of sewing going on at the moment, just a bit of pottering with the leaders and enders and sorting of old projects. So I might have to resort to ancient quilts if I want to post photos.

The house is set on half an acre, so there's lots of lawns, garden beds and trees all around. Fortuneately I love gardening and I can hardly wait to get stuck into all the pruning and tidying and digging and planting.

Don't worry, there will be plenty of quilting going on soon, even if I've got all this other stuff to do as well. Just as well I get up at 5.30 in the morning!

So happy to hear that you have found a situation that will work for both of you. Having taken in an elderly parent, I know you will face trying time, but the reward will be worth it in the end.

The new place sounds lovely, and it's great that you have someone to still live in your current home. Much nicer than selling it...*VBS* Old pictures will be just fine...*S*

It sounds like you're very excited about your new arrangement, Mereth. Good for you. Your positive energy will be great for your Mum!

Oh what a wonderful house! I love it! Gee, if I could move to Australia I would love to have that house!

What a wonderful thing for you to do for your mom. The house looks beautiful and I'm sure you'll have fun making it home. :o)

What a sweetie to take care of mum this way. My 85 year old mom lived with us for about two years before I needed to move her to a retirement community. It's a good thing you have an "escape" place of your own, though - no matter how much you love mom, it's nice to be on your own and in your own space occasionallY!
