This week I bought a new house. I wasn't even looking, how did this happen? As you can see by the view from our new place we're not in Paddington any more Toto. It was the water view, big yard and the prospect of an exciting new renovation project that seduced me. Paddington is still my home until next year and it will be with a heavy heart that I say goodbye. All the same I'm just about busting out of my skin at the prospect of renovating my lovely new Sydney sandstone and weather board beach house.
