First 24 Hours in D’Bay

First Day of 2019

My furniture and big boxes all arrived in Deception Bay, just after Christmas.  The unit looks chaotic – still, and I have a lot of work to do to sort it all out.  I am missing some items – no doubt never to be seen again.  It is nearly two years since the first removalist took my things into storage!

I packed up as best I could from the house sit – and drove to D’Bay yesterday and worked all day to bring some order into the chaos.  It was not my plan to move in before January 1st.  I want to make 2019 the best and was happy to move in on the first day of the year.

Over the years I have spent a lot of time moving house.  I am originally from South Australia, and with my husband and family moved to Warrnambool, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Sydney, Brisbane and a few additional moves in Brisbane. I’d love to think I would never find myself moving house again!

Boxes and Boxes

There are so many boxes to sort.  I have had too many hobbies – that’s why I call myself a Jill of All Trades and Mistress of None.

Below is a list of things I have learned/worked on.




Jewelry Making

Cheese Making

Paper Making





Family History



Collecting Shells

Collecting Chinese pottery


And I have been a teacher (plenty of resources), student (still lots of notes and material0 from study days, and so it goes.

The shredder is working overtime at the moment!

Morning Walk

It’s not far to walk down to the waterfront, and that I did – with camera of course.  What a glorious day!  Here are some of my photos.

No doubt I will visit the foreshore often.  I am looking forward to life at D’Bay.  Just must finish unpacking the boxes!!!
