This pocket of cuteness in Tasmania’s North West is a home for sale; my home For Sale! From experience it is a safe nest to cradle young children. That is my best platform for a sales pitch. A place where we ‘wild parents’ have let little ones inhale, roll and fight against bull ants. There are all the normal parts of a house and a roaring wood fire that makes the winter a pleasure, as long as the pile of timber in the great shed holds up to Spring. On adjoining land, happy dairy herds mow through the crispest green pastures on earth and a large white sea eagle makes visits on its way up the Flowerdale River. Other little birds always swoop at the giant eagle in the skeleton of a gum tree, framed by a striking clear sky. It is sheltered, like a private haven here in the Flowerdale Valley with hills towering up on either side. We have lived and loved this home. Our wonky baby buggy got bogged and bumped its way along the lane with tired limbs and gumboot tread, one foot after another. Sometimes washing never dried and at the other extreme of the year, the lawn was like a park land with the shade of a huge weeping birch a place to set up chairs and fine fare for parties. There are lots of memories and some great images with family and friends. Mostly, though nostalgia is brimming; I know we have relished our young family life here and the move my family will make (in September 2013) is about another time of our lives, with this home still a part of who we are. Now I look to cultivate a new life with words and fresh views.
