That’s me! Commonly known as Julia or Julz. I have lots of ideas and plans about lots of things and a great love of life in the countryside. I wanted to live in the country since I was a little girl, and always felt like a country girl at heart trapped in a town girl’s world. I get much joy out of living my simple, creative life. I have multiple interests and skills and juggle lots of projects at the same time. I am a serial learner. I also like to help other people learn. I am a stay-at-home mum to the The Little Fulla, with side hussles of selling native plants, Christmas decorations and Australorp chickens. My favourite thing to do is gardening or any sort of work outside. While I like having little adventures, my favourite place to be is at home with The Husband and The Little Fulla.
The Husband works in the networking industry and was previously a chef. That means he can make nice food for us as well as being extremely helpful with technology and other manly stuff around the house. He is the best cook in the house (apparently), although he doesn’t get to do most of the cooking now. He’s the tomato soup maker of the family. If he had his way the entire Veggie Garden would be planted in tomatoes. Sometimes he just needs a little bit of convincing to partake in my garden schemes and building projects, but he likes the part where food comes out at the other end. A serial nut pilferer. He is most happy in front of the computer. He has a bunch of different skills that just need an outlet to be tapped into.
The Little Fulla
The Little Fulla is our small human child. He is the most precious thing we have. He is a fidget and has been since before he was born. It’s no wonder, with a fidget father and a multiple multi-tasking mother. He is 4 now. He likes to help with almost everything, otherwise he will find his own tasks to do, which inevitably involve eating produce, ‘fixing’ things or digging somewhere he’s not supposed to. While he requires a lot of time and energy, he is adorable and funny and is learning lots of different skills and disciplines at home.
Nala is our senior fur child. She is beloved. She likes to talk to us, likes to sleep long hours in or near the house, watches and catches critters in the garden and gets nutty in the evenings if the fire isn’t on, if she’s not getting enough attention, if she’s hungry or just because she can. She likes playing with twisty ties, hair ties and like items, and getting sifty on any paper that is left on the floor. She is 12 years old now and has slowed down a lot.
Simba is our youngest fur child, who came to us and got to stay. He has settled down a lot as he heads towards adulthood, but he still likes to provoke Nala sometimes. He has proven to be a very efficient and stealthy hunter but is also very snuggly towards us, climbing on our laps and curling up on our beds.
The feather children have a page to themselves in the menu up the top. Because they really do like having things all to themselves.
