So Many Peaches

I’m moving to the country, and you can bet I’m going to eat a lot of peaches. Unless I end up nearer to somewhere that grows pears and/or apples. Basically, I’m going to partake in the local produce, which is the best part of being in the country.

I’ve said for years that the city isn’t for me. I remember being about seven years old and telling Mum that I wanted to go to live in a big house in a field. Of course, I also wanted pet tigers and a spring underneath the ground that I can use to catapult unwanted visitors away, but you can’t have it all, I guess. I’ll settle for the big house, which I have now bought.

There’s still going to be a transition period, though. For starters, I need to get in a timber window repair company. Melbourne friends, do you have any recommendations? I don’t know the area, or who does good window stuff, and I don’t mind paying a bit extra for someone from the city to come out and provide some quality window services. Still, I wonder how easy it’s going to be to put my money where my mouth is and actually move to the country. Will I be one of those people who just travels in and out, constantly? It’s a different life out there, for sure. Look at me already: I’m getting window replacement services from Melbourne because I don’t trust the locals – not a great start. I don’t know; Melbourne stuff just seems a bit… better. It’s what I’m used to. And if it’s for a big job, then I’m going to go with what I know.

All excuses, I know. I should just take the plunge and do it. Stick a bit of hay in my mouth and sit on the front porch in a rocking chair, kelpie by my side. But before that…well, Melbourne aluminium door replacements are very good. Just let me get my country abode looking how I like and then I’ll be a country kid, I promise.
