After many years of rural life, my parents have decided it’s time to leave the Toowoomba district and move to the city where they’ll be closer to family. In fact they’ll be just down the road which we’re thrilled about. It’ll be great to be able to pop ’round for a cuppa and share in each other’s lives in a more spontaneous way. It will be the first time in nearly 30 years that my sister and I and our parents have lived in the same town.
It’s also the end of an era and that’s a bit sad. I don’t really remember a time when my parents haven’t lived in the bush. Ten acres not too far from town, a creek, wildlife, paddocks and of course a big shed. Jess and I are so grateful for a rural upbringing and our own families have treasured time spent with Ma and Pa on the ‘farm’. So how about a little trip down memory lane ?
