Post # 1

Not day one. It is Day 11. Well no, this is at least five years in the making. So I need to start at the beginning.

In the beginning there was a dream. A dream of a place in the country. Five years ago after many country drives, maps turning upside down and right way up, getting lost, getting found, getting charged for speeding Bellmore was found.

This is Bellmore, which I renamed Bellamore which meant Beautiful Love in Italian.

I had found my dream.

A five acre block amongst 500 and 150 acre blocks with not a neighbour in site. The only way I was going to part with my dream was to find a bigger, better or closer to home dream country home.

Then on the way home one day. I


A dream block. No house.

"From Option 1 house pad"

"From the further back Option 2"

And this blog was born.

Happy reading
