It's time to say farewell to this blogging space.  I had planned to do it better, but time just hasn't allowed.  I had so many more posts I wanted to write, share and enjoy with you all, but time isn't on my side.  I need to prioritise and when I can't even find time to come and visit you as much as I would like, then it's not about squeezing in posts when I can.  To me that isn't blogging.  I always knew at the start of this year that by the end of it, I would say goodbye to MiraNarnie....that it would stop. more.  But now I am actually having to do it, it's with a heavy heart.  She's carried me through so much, brought me so much joy, inspiration and challenged me to a whole new way of connecting with like minding (and even not so like minding) individuals.   And the people.  Whoa the people I've meet, the friends I've made....that was the surprise package that I didn't expect when I blindingly and naively jumped into the blogging scene.

The consolation is that my blogging journey is not officially ending.  Just this space is.

So whilst I literally pack my family up from our life in Melbourne, the time is here to say goodbye.  Life at the moment is crazy busy with all the shenanigans that come with moving, changing schools and building a house.   I will be blogging from 13 acres as much as time allows.   Our new family blog is all about our new life in a small country town and our documentation on our new build, planning our veggie garden, farm animals and general goings on.  

I wont forget you all.  I'll still try and visit you, when I get the just might not be that often.  

Thank you to those that read my blog, followed along, made wonderful comments and were just part of this experience that is hard to leave.

As I close this  I anticipate what the next instalment will bring
