But you walk into your new home and you remember its a much smaller version.
The grander versions above give me great ideas and inspiartion for what I will do with mine anyway!

We bought a house!

So finally after about 9 weeks since we kissed our beautiful old house goodbye, after an extensive search we will take possession of our new home this Friday.
 The reason we bought is for its amazing views and big double block. 
We will live in the house for a little while before starting our next adventure. 

Here is a sneak peek:

35 Eyre Street, Mount Gravatt East, Qld 4122
View from the back yard. Yes, there is an outdoor dunny too!
 I have not seen inside there yet, I'm leaving that surprise for when we move in.

It has been a long time dream of mine to go to a health retreat and finally all the stars aligned and I was very lucky to go! I had such a wonderful time (after being very sick the first 2 days with sugar and caffeine withdrawals) and now I want to go back again. It was a beautiful place, I wanted to take more photos, but it did not seem too cool to be clicking away while people where trying to relax. My highlight was having a spa treatment everyday at their amazing spa and then relaxing in the eucalyptus steam room, them strolling over to dinner, then straight to bed at 8pm!

My room

I loved all the vintage touches! - goes without saying.

All food was provided. It was all delicious, organic and pletnyful, I ate more food there than I normally do.

The view to the coast was amazing.

We did exercise here in mornings at sunrise

My cottage

My front veranda

Same Cottage from the front. Not all the accommodation was as "heritage" as this. They also had modern suites.

The Gym. We did yoga, boxing, Pilate's etc, as much or as little as I liked.

All in all, I am feeling so much fitter, healthier and more relaxed.
