First Post!

It occurs to me that this huge change in lifestyle should be noted.  Pretty egotistical of me actually!

My craziness is indisputable - what was I thinking!

We are in our early 50's and we have just bought a Caravan Park/Motel/Holiday Resort in Swan Hill.  Country Victoria to those without!  Not bad for a city girl!

I seem to be writing how I talk!!  HA HA!  That's interesting!  All of the bells and whistles offered by this blogging site will be investigated in time - for now, boring, basic blogging is coming your way!

There is an enormously daunting list of things that need to be repaired, replaced or reinvented before we can make this park our own.  A whole lot of it needs to be done before we can even move into the residence.  Good thing we have three strong girls to pitch in and help!

(I can't hear myself over their combined cries of "Not Me" right now!!)

We have been trying to buy this sad, sorry and rundown park for about 18 months now.  Many, many things have gotten in our way and all have been slowly and systematically waded through so that we are now on the home stretch and within a month (supposedly - fingers crossed!!) of our settlement date.

The list of things to do is HUGE.  The list of things to buy exceeds my capacity to pay for it all!!

Learning to prioritise will be one of my first skills I think!

Small business management courses seem to be on my horizon too!!

For now, homeschooling our girls, building a resort business website, rewriting and rebuilding my Australian Homeschool Network website, writing this blog (badly) and working nights until the move take up most of my time.


  1. Hi Jenny,

    Looking forward to hearing more of your rambles as you set out on this new adventure.

    Best wishes

  2. All the best with the business. It sounds like a big project but lots of fun.
