The heart of the first home we bought was of course the loungeroom - where we could play our music loudly and celebrate many happy events such as July Turkey with our friends ...and eventually, one lucky day where we could hang out and play with our twins. These were the sort of photos I used to email Phil at work - when I felt that I needed him home early - I have one somewhere of the pair of them gnawing on part of his precious cable like giant rats.

A couple of weeks ago I noticed a house for sale in Sydney - it was the one that Phil and I rented - before we had kids...when we were young and saving up for a deposit so that we could buy a place of our own. There are so many happy memories attached to that house of new years eve parties, dinners, the pub around the corner where I have been known to ring up and ask if Phil was there - and then to get them to pass on the message that he was due home or his dinner would get cold! The same pub where we played pool the night before our wedding. the house we used for our prewedding photos and the park at the end of our street where we walked and picniced and went to to catch the ferry into town. We made some new friends while we were there - friends we still hold dear today. Here is the view from the back yard:
