“Hello World” from Molly’s Grass Road

Well – here goes. My inaugural posting on my first ever blog. So Mick, the kids and I have leapt into the unknown with the purchase of Molly’s Grass Road on the Far North Coast, NSW.

Our new, very old house needs a lot of love to be transformed into the beauty we imagine.

I hope this blog recounts the process – no doubt the tears and hopefully some of the triumphs. Our dilapidated 120 year old hardwood mill workers’ cottage sits on a plot of land that is just short of ¾ acre. We have inherited a massive mango tree and lots of citrus trees. I will make an inventory of what food trees we have on the blog in the near future …

Our mango tree – in the front yard

Perhaps a little cheesy, but I thought this song captures a dream I have had for a long time and now finally realised (except our mango tree is in the front yard!)
