A lot of things have changed since I took this photo.
Some of those socks have gone missing.
The deck has been replaced.
The ancient ‘walk around phone’, that my son is using was eventually ‘put out to pasture’.
The possum that made the scratches on the wall above the washing machine has been evicted from our roof and now lives in a possum box on the side of the house.
The roof has been replaced as well, but it is just out of sight in this shot.
Two and half grandchildren have begun their existence.
All of our children have moved out of home, and a second dog moved in.
We lost a neighbour and are about to gain a new set.
A lot of things haven’t changed though. We still live here, in this amazing little tumbling down house and we are very happy…………… oh yes…….. and the ghost moved on………. he loved the house as much as we do, but he had to go.
