Pete and I got married on the beach four years ago yesterday (23.10.10).  I wrote ALL about it one our first anniversary, so if you're interested in simple wedding ideas, here are the links:

A simple wedding in several parts - location, guest list and invitations, accommodation

A simple wedding part 2 - the dress and flowers

A simple wedding part 3 - the ceremony

A simple wedding part 4 - the reception


Any simple wedding tips to add?

  2. Happy Anniversary to you both. I've just read all the posts on your wedding and I love that it was a simple and family affair. In saying that (simple) we all know that even a simple wedding takes planning and money but it's your wedding and you did it your way and I loved the cake with the chocolate shells in it, a nice touch. I had the wedding of my dreams however unfortunately for me the marriage was a nightmare. We had 40 people at our wedding in a little chapel at Mt Tamborine and reception there as well then we came back to Brisbane and had "drinks" with other friends and work friends. I didn't want the bridal table sitting in front of all the guests as it seems like you are not a part of it. We opted for round tables and at our table had the parents and one bridesmaid and a groomsman. Glad you did something that was "just you" and after all it's your wedding. Regards Kathy A, Brisbane

  6. Congratulations! I am in the planning or trying to plan or that is too hard part of the wedding thing. We want something simple but can't settle on a place. I love your ideas and Woodgate is a lovely area.

  7. Four years and counting...only a lifetime to go! If you're having fun with your best friend, time seems to fly by. If you're feeling miserable, time can drag. Sometimes its a mix of both. ;)

    Happy anniversary.

What to do with eight acres

Behind the scenes of my blog I can see the search terms that led people to find my blog.  It can be quite interesting to look through them occasionally and see what people are looking for.  Most of them involve chicken tractors, but another question that comes up regularly is “what can you do with eight acres?” or “how much land is eight acres?”.  Today I will try to answer this question.

Of course it is a very broad question, there are lots and lots of things you can do with eight acres, but I’m going to assume that you want to live there, feed your family and maybe make a little extra money.  I make that assumption because that’s what I know about, if you want to do something else with your eight acres, you will need to look somewhere else.

If you haven’t chosen your land yet, here a few things to look for.  Focus on the things you can’t change and try to choose the best property you can find in your price range.  Look for clean water in dams, bores or wells, either on the property …

We don't have any cling wrap either

Last week I wrote about how we don't have a microwave and I really don't miss it.  So continuing the theme of "weird things about my kitchen", we also don't have any plastic cling wrap or paper towels.  And we haven't had them for so long I can hardly remember why we ever needed them.


I always thought that cling wrap was wasteful.  Not just from an environmental perspective, but I also didn't like spending money on something that I only used once.  When I was at uni and took sandwiches for lunch, I used to bring home the cling wrap and use it again until it didn't stick anymore.  One year when we did Plastic Free July (I can't remember when exactly - here's what I wrote last year) we decided to stop using cling wrap.  I used up the last of it recently when we were painting (its really hard to renovate without creating waste) - its handy for wrapping up paintbrushes and sealing paint temporarily, however I do not use it in the kitchen.

Farmer Liz: You will remember Tanya from Lovely Greens from the first series, she lives on the Isle of Mann and added chickens to her garden about a year ago.  You can leave comments for this post on Tanya's blog.



How many chickens (and other fowl) do you keep, what breed and what do you use them for (meat, eggs, slug control etc)?
Tanya: Around the same time that we were initially thinking about having hens another friend beat us to the punch. She went to the local pet store and bought a flat-pack hen house and chicken run combo and found a local farmer who had dozens of semi-feral chickens running around his property. One night he pulled three down from the trees and my friend took them home in a pet carrier. She named them Miracel, Carmen, and Geraldine and though they’re probably related they were all…
